2013 King of Spain

 

Sailed at California Yacht Club, Marina del Rey, California.

Mark Reynolds from San Diego YC teamed with CYC's Hal Haenel to win the King of Spain Regatta - yet again. Over the long history of this annual Star regatta, this pair has enjoyed unparalleled success. Sixteen Stars traveled to CYC for the event this year. Reynolds and Haenel never finished any of the five races lower than third place as they won the event by a comfortable five-point margin over Jim Buckingham and Austin Sperry from Newport Harbor YC.

----------------

The King of Spain trophy dates back to 1929 when CYC member Owen Churchill competed for and won the trophy on many occasions. King Alphonse of Spain originally dedicated the trophy in 1928 to promote racing in the eight-meter class. Mr. Churchill, an Olympic Gold medalist, had won the trophy six times in eight tries and playfully enforced his "ownership rights" by retiring the trophy. In 1968, Churchill was persuaded to bring the trophy back to CYC where it was re- dedicated for winners of various Olympic Class competitions. In the late 1970's, the trophy was dedicated solely to the International Star Class as it remains today.
