Yachting Cup boasts heavy number of registrants, open for more

Monday, April 20, 2015, San Diego, CA: For sailors, springtime in San Diego can only mean one thing. While the rest of the country enjoys warmer weather and blossoming wildlife, the sailing community is training and strategizing for Yachting Cup, the premiere spring regatta of the San Diego Yacht Club.

Yachting Cup will take place from May 1-3, with three days of racing scheduled both in the bay and out on the ocean. After each day of racing, competitors will be invited to stay at SDYC for the post-race social.

Seventy-two of the sport’s most enthusiastic sailors have already signed up to compete in the signature regatta, but Yachting Cup has plenty room for more competition. Skippers can continue to register their boats until 5:00 PM on Monday, April 27th.

The 2014 Yachting Cup Champion Rick Goebel is registered and ready to defend his championship title. However, he is faced with a long list of past champions ready to take back the title, including 2013 champion Tim Fuller and 2012 champion John Laun.

In addition to top-notch competition, the Yachting Cup also prides itself in promoting environmental responsibility by registering with Sailors for the Sea as a Clean Regatta.

The Yachting Cup would like to thank its sponsors El Jimador, Spinlock, Harken, Downwind Marine and Sailing Supply, North Sails, Mount Gay, Anchor Glove Co., Jackson Design & Remodeling, First National Bullion, Ballast Point, SD Boatworks, Joysailing and Cynthia Sinclair Photography.
