Super Cup write up!

Nine I-14’s headed down to San Diego over the weekend for SuperCup held out of San Diego Yacht Club.   SuperCup is a great 14 skiff event held on the bay with short courses showcasing a mid course gate that you have to sail through both upwind and downwind.   All of the races were twice around with three minute starts and the race committee kept the boats rolling by sending off the starts quickly.


Solid crew work and positioning paid huge dividends as all of the boats found…

2017 US Nationals @ the Gorge

by Dalton Bergan

11 I-14s braved the world-renowned Gorge conditions for their US Nationals.  Absolutely beautiful breeze-on conditions throughout the event and the week leading up for all of those who put their time in during the week. 

Radziejowski/Sjostedt finished 3rd with outstanding upwind speed but a few too many capsizes; watch out for…

2017 Skiff Fest – Santa Barbara Delivers the Goods!

Six California based 14’s headed to Santa Barbara last weekend for what has proven over the last few years to be a very light air (and sometimes no air) race course.    Santa Barbara is always beautiful and the hospitality of Santa Barbara Yacht Club is always strong and keeps getting better.  


This year the conditions proved to be different… same…

2015 Totally Dinghy Regatta

Six 14's were treated to excellent fall conditions this past weekend at the Totally Dinghy regatta run by RYC.  Although there was no breeze at the city front (sad day for the big boats over there), we had enough breeze on Saturday to twin wire all day long, upwind and downwind, say 8 or a little more knots of breeze? The breeze was very steady and the water was flat, perfect racing conditions and allowing everyone to finish all races.  Well, except for the first race on Saturday, in which…

San Diego Super Cup

Seven I-14s came to SDYC on Apr 11-12 to participate in the San Diego Super Cup.   49ers, 49erFX and 29ers were invited as well, however there was no participation from those fleets this year.  Super Cup racing is short course windward / leeward racing with a mid leg gate which must be honored both upwind and downwind.  This puts a premium on boat handing and starting, and decreases a pure boat speed advantage.  The course is set close to land to allow for better spectator viewing.  With a…

Five boats made it to the SD NOOD, unfortunately several boats that had planned to sail were stuck in Container Jail.  The boats returning from Geelong Worlds were held hostage by the West Coast shipping/dockworkers strikes.  The five boats that did make it to SD enjoyed Santa Ana breezes and hot temps.  The Santa Ana are famous in SoCal for strong offshore breezes and hot dry atmosphere.  These winds make for puffy, unstable conditions which are much…
