Southern California Yachting Association's E.E. Manning Regatta 2013, hosted by Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, provided a throwback to the sport's simpler past as basic seat-of-the-pants sailing reigns on Saturday and Sunday.

Many of the approximate 200 grown-up and kid competitors in more than a hundred boats will be following their parents and grandparents in the event's format that was founded in 1935, long before carbon fiber and canting keels---in fact, there will be no keels at all.

Competition is limited to one- and two-person dinghies with body weight only for ballast. Classes forming include doublehanded Club Flying Junior (CFJ) and Lido 14s, alongside singlehanded Finns, Laser Full and Laser Radial, with reduced sail area, and low-key Naples Sabots.

The event also is the fourth and final stop of the Shadden Series tour of Southern California following regattas at Marina del Rey, Newport Beach and San Diego. Fifty teams with boys and girls under age 19 are racing CFJs in the series that was launched in 1991 in the name of John Shadden, one of Long Beach's premier youth sailors whose career peaked with an Olympic silver medal performance in 1988.

Shadden, still a Long Beach resident, shared that Olympic success with crew Mike Segerblom, who is now executive director of the US Sailing Center in Long Beach and will be principal race officer this weekend.

Three teams from Del Rey Yacht Club top the Shadden Series standings into the windup. Christopher Weis and crew Dot Obei, with seven first-place finishes in 16 races so far, appear to have an insurmountable lead.

The schedule for all classes calls for four races Saturday and three Sunday. Racing will be on the outer harbor inside the breakwater, except for the Lidos and Sabots that will race inside on the bay.

Racing will start at noon each day, conditions permitting. The forecast is for a warming weekend after a chilly February.

The Manning is raced annually at ABYC. It was first contested in 1935 to honor E.E. Manning, a member of the Los Angeles YC who during his lifetime was an active sponsor and promoter of dinghy racing. The namesake Manning trophy is awarded to the winner of the class with the most competitors.
