About the Event

For the first time since 1962, the INSA Junior Sabot Nationals are sailing back to the San Diego Yacht Club, creating a historic and thrilling moment for the event! This exciting return brings a blend of tradition and competition, with a qualification series narrowing the championship to 120 boats and the return of the Cove Cup Consolation Regatta.

This four-day event is anticipated to feature over 150 competitors from the top yacht clubs in Southern California. The races will be held in the scenic La Playa Turning Basin, located just west of the San Diego Yacht Club. Spectators will have numerous viewing options around the race venue, offering parents and racers a breathtaking, stadium-style view of the course.

Beyond the exciting races, this event promises lively social activities and plenty of amenities for competitors and their families. Festivities kick off with a grand opening ceremony on Monday night, featuring many former champions. The fun continues with a regatta dinner, ice cream social, pool party, and more racing until a champion is crowned on the Historic Front Deck. Parents can enjoy a semi-private, quiet work area with high-speed Wi-Fi, an adults-only cocktail hour, and convenient on-site vendors for last-minute boat repairs and upgrades.
