In SoCal (and beyond), the SCYA Midwinter Regatta will span 30 yacht clubs and two weekends (February 10-11 and 17-18). The Islands Race, co-hosted by Newport Harbor YC and San Diego YC on February 16-17, will take sailors on a 130-mile journey from Long Beach Harbor, around Catalina and San Clemente Islands, to San Diego.

The Singlehanded Sailing Society’s 2018 season, which started with the Three Bridge Fiasco last weekend, will continue on February 24 with another Bay tour, the SSS Corinthian Race, starting and finishing off the CYC deck. A skippers’ meeting will be held on February 21, 7:30 p.m., at Island YC in Alameda; that Wednesday will also be the deadline to sign up.
