The West Coast Championship, sailed in San Diego's South bay March 14-16, is the highlight of the regularly scheduled west coast regattas. This year was one of the best in recent years. The days were sunny, the water sort of warm (well, not cold) and the wind consistently fantastic, mostly in the 8 to 15 kt range.
A few boats showed up for practice on Thursday, and enjoyed the great breeze to tune up.
On Friday, more great breeze, with Terry Gleason and Evan…Continue

As has been the custom for the last several years, the West Coast Championship was sailed as part of the San Diego NOOD regatta. Tireless So Cal I-14 fleet promoter Brad Reutenik has been coordinating the regatta with the NOOD folks, and his efforts make this regatta a favorite of the west coast fleet. He even went so far as to attend the off-site skippers meeting and bring the information back for an on-the-beach meeting for the fleet.
A total of 10 boats registered for the…Continue
