District 5  Regatta Report

Sat Jul 11th, 2015 through Sun Jul 12th, 2015

2015 King of Spain

 

Sailed at California Yacht Club.

Report by Paul Cayard:
16 Stars turned up in Marina del Rey this weekend to contest the King of Spain regatta. The conditions couldn’t have been better with 8- 10 knots for all 6 races.

Jimmy Buckingham and Austin Sperry posted great scores to win the regatta with 7 points. They won three of the 6 races with great speed. Danny and I sailed well to finish second with 9 points and Andy MacDonnald and Brad Nichol finished 3rd.

The best part of the weekend for me was the last race. Danny and I switched places and he steered his first Star race. Danny had a great start, we had decent speed and we were 1st to the windward mark! I doubt I was first to the first windward mark of my first race steering a Star. Very proud of my son! What can I say?

I think we upped the level on the fun meter.

Next event if the Lipton Cup in Santa Barbara August 8-9.

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

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.
