Notice of Racing: 2021 Sailing Season Delivered Today

The new year can’t get here soon enough. Since the whole world is anxiously awaiting 2021, the YRA and Latitude 38 took it upon ourselves to deliver the year a couple of days early. If you’re a YRA member you should have received your 2021 Northern California Sailing Calendar and YRA Master Schedule in your mailbox already, and if you’re not a member, head down to your local Northern California magazine distributor to pick up the new year today.

We were a little anxious when we called Laura Paul in August to find out what the YRA was planning to do about racing in 2021. Fortunately, just like the race officers, race committees, clubs, fleets, race chairmen and racers, the YRA wanted to create the future we all want to live in. That meant, despite the obstacles, making plans for a better year ahead. Congratulations are due to all of them. The racing world will unfold however it allows, but without the perseverance and optimism of all race organizers, there wouldn’t be anything on the calendar at all.

The new, 2021 race calendar is packed with events including the Three Bridge Fiasco, California Offshore Race Week, the Transpac, and the  Rolex Big Boat Series, plus midwinters, beer can races, offshore racing and a solid lineup of fun and challenging weekends. We all have to be prepared to tack on the next shift, but with the calendar in hand, you can at least know the direction you want to go. See you on the water.
