About 110 boats are expected to compete in the annual California Yacht Club Cal Cup yacht races Saturday June 4th, and Sunday, June 5th.
Thirteen classes are anticipated. By Tuesday morning, 103 entries had been received. Registration deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday, June 2nd.
Three courses, with individual principal race officers, are being set. California Yacht Club race committee chair Tom O’Conor, rear commodore Frank Glynn and staff commodore Bill Stump will each serve as a principal race officer on his own course.
Each will have his own committee boat and group of volunteers for support.
Volunteers from many different yacht clubs and sailing organizations will assist in record keeping and scoring.
Among the organizations and individuals represented as volunteers are WSA (Women’s Sailing Association of Santa Monica Bay), SBYRC (South Bay Yacht Racing Club) commodore Julie Albright, and ASMBYC (Association of Santa Monica Bay Yacht Clubs) commodore Wilma Rosenberg.
Five mark set boats will be kept very busy placing the movable marks, to keep the courses challenging.
For several designs, this event provides additional trophies.
The event will serve the J-105 Class as its J-105 Pacific Coast Championship.
On Friday, before Cal Race Week begins, San Fernando Valley Yacht Club will host the first day of the Holder 20 National Championship. Saturday and Sunday will complete the yacht club’s event.
For three PHRF (Performance Handicap Racing Fleet) Classes, Fast 50s, Fast 40s and the Sport Boat Class, the event represents the third stop on the “Ullman Sails Inshore Championship.”
