San Diego Yacht Club's annual Women's Winter Invitational Regatta returns this upcoming winter, February 16-18, 2024. Recently having won the US Sailing One Design Regatta Award, this all-woman, three-day competition attracts sailors from all over the world.

The Women's Winter Invitational is sailed at SDYC directly off the docks in La Playa and features the Club's J/22 sailboats, which are sponsored by Mount Gay. The course can expect more than 80 sailors over 24 teams for an action-packed regatta weekend on and off the water.

The Women's Winter Invitational is one of the first established yacht club challenges for women in the country, with a goal to encourage participation in the sport while providing a unique Southern California sailing experience. Sailors and spectators alike experience the unmatched atmosphere of San Diego in February.

The weekend starts with a welcome reception on Friday, February 16. A casual celebration invites sailors to join in on camaraderie and get to know each other. Following the first day of racing on Saturday, February 17, competitors are invited to enjoy a regatta dinner at the Club. To conclude the weekend, the Awards Ceremony will be held post-racing on Sunday, February 18.

Applications for invitation are currently being accepted through December 1, 2023. Accepted teams will be notified of their invitation by December 9, 2023. Teams can apply here.

Spectators, press, and invited guests are welcomed dockside at SDYC, aboard your own boat, or for the general public along Point Loma's Bessemer Path, just boat lengths from the course.

If anyone on your team would like to cover the event, please contact Communications Director Casey Coffin at .
