Words from the Commodore

 


Greetings from the Helm,
 
The Women’s Club Championships was held this past weekend in Charleston, utilizing the College of Charleston J22s. Congratulations to Amy Woodard and the team from James Island Yacht Club. The clubs from Charleston Yacht Club, Hobcaw Yacht Club and The Geechee Sailing Club also fielded teams and all sailed well and had fun. The Sunfish North American Championships was held at Lake Norman Yacht Club with 87 boats in attendance, after 3 days of racing in great weather and 8 races. Congratulations to all SAYRA sailors who sailed in the competitive regatta.  Carolina Yacht Club, NC hosted the ILCA ACC Regatta at the end of May with 140 boats! Congratulations to CYC NC for a wonderful event! SCYC also kicked off the SAYRA Jr Grand Prix Series with their own Junior regatta. We are busy sailing in SAYRA! 
 
If you thing you are the best and want to put that on the line; apply for the U.S. Sailing Offshore Championships, held in Annapolis in Navy 44s; this is a resume entry event.  US Sailing Adult Championship is a resume entry as only one team from SAYRA can attend resumes entry must be submitted before August 24. 
 
Many clubs are hosting their summer sailing camps/programs/schools; this is the life blood of our sport, get out and support these young sailors, ask them to join you as crew; you never know that might lead to a life long friendship and you will be growing our sport for the next generation!
 
Sail more and sail fast, if I can do anything for you, or your club please reach out to me.
Best,  Pete
SAYRA Commodore
