Sail-World.com : SCYA Midwinter Regatta is firing up for competition
SCYA Midwinter Regatta is firing up for competition


'SCYA Midwinter Regatta'    Rich Roberts ©

The Southern California Yachting Association's 85th Midwinter Regatta is firing up for competition February 15-16 at 24 venues from San Diego to Ventura and Arizona, none busier than Alamitos Bay Yacht Club in Long Beach.

ABYC expects to host up to a hundred boats in as many as 11 classes---505, C-15, CFJ, F-18, Etchells, Finn, I-420, I-14, Laser Master, Lido 14, Viper 640---most launching from the beach adjacent to the club because of ongoing reconstruction of Basin 5 at the club. Online entry is available.

First staged in 1928, it's the longest-running regatta in Southern California, surviving the Great Depression, a full range of weather and interrupted only by World War II. SCYA and the Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce teamed up in 1928 to sponsor the first Midwinters in L.A. Harbor, which was promoted as the sports 'paradise' that Southern California offered in the winter.

Until the 60s all the boats were wooden but some of the sailors were legendary. Humphrey Bogart sailed his Santana to second place in a handicap class in 1947, and Jim Kilroy raced Kialoa II in 1967, more than a decade after Long Beach's Barney Flam blew onto the scene. Flam, now 89, would probably be sailing his Cal 20 in this event if the hoists were available at ABYC. Maybe next year.

ABYC's racing will be in the Long Beach outer harbor inside the breakwater, except for Lido 14s inside Alamitos Bay. Races will start at noon each day, conditions permitting.
