Regattas continue on this fall with the CYC Junior sail team. The Cascadia Fleet race was hosted by Sail Sand Point this past weekend and it was a mixed regatta of high school and collegiate sailors. CYC's Ballard group had teams in both the Gold and Silver Fleets. Ballard's Gold Fleet placed 3rd out of 24, with the UW taking first place. The kids did well with good wind but soggy weather. Also this weekend, CYC Junior sailor Isabelle McNabb competed in the Pumpkin Bowl hosted by Vancouver YC and she placed 4th in the Laser 4.7 division. The week-end prior to this was a Team race regatta, again hosted by Sail Sand Point and Ballard placed 5th. There is lots of sailing going on with these kids and they appreciate the opportunities to get on the water.
The CYC Junior Sail Team had a great weekend at the Trick or Treat Team race regatta hosted by the Anacortes Waterfront Association on Fidalgo Bay. There was lots of sunshine and wind on Saturday and less wind on Sunday but the kids had a great time sailing, spending time together as a team and they won the costume contest! The Ballard group placed 7th in this event, which consists of three double handed boats racing against another team of three. Fun was had by all!
