Thank you to everyone who came out to race! Thanks, also, to our many volunteers. This regatta does not happen without the incredible efforts of many people. Finally, huge thanks to our sponsors who make all of this possible!
While we were all at the CHCR, Lucija Ruzevic was at the Silly String Regatta at Grapevine. She took first place for the girls and snagged the 2017 Girls Texas State Champion title!!!
Lucinda Breeding of the Denton Record Chronicle wrote an article about the club and the Corinthian Heritage Cup Regatta. Cindy, Laura, and Thomas (the photographer) enjoyed an evening sail on Adios with David Patterson, Janell Hoffman, Heather Fahle, and Chris Hoskins.

We have a friendly reminder from our leadership team that trash cans by the docks are for discarding small trash and rubbish after a day on the water.
The trash cans are not to be used for disposal of large items from boat repair or remodeling and never for flammable material like oil, gas or diesel fuel.
Disposal of such items remains your personal responsibility, especially with regard to hazardous materials.
If you have questions, please consult with our Commodores or Harbormaster.
Thank you for your cooperation.

On March 5th, Tim Johnson and the DCYC J/24 fleet wrapped up an active preseason on a foggy, wet day with temps in the 50s.
Results can be found here.
On to the Circuit!! Good luck, everyone!!
EUROPA CUP, SLOVENIA: Day 1 of racing was canceled due to high winds.
BACARDI RACE WEEK, MIAMI: Day 1 of racing was canceled due to no wind.
WINTER SERIES #5, OAK POINT: Perfect winds, and a great day to be out on the water!
It’s always great to hit the road, but as we say, there’s no place like home.
It does sound like our on-the-road racers are having a great time, even if the winds are not completely cooperating. Lucija raced in two regattas leading up to the Europa Cup. She did quite well in both, landing second place finishes for girls in her age group among a very competitive group. Nino tells me the races are longer than our TSA races, lasting an hour. They were also squeezing six races in a day at the regattas. So Lucija was hiking around six hours on race days. How long can you hike?
[The Europa Cup is still in progress; check back here for updates.]
In Miami, the first of two regattas was a mast-breaking event. Racing was canceled on Day 1 and some of those who dared go out on Day 2 did so at their peril. Our Viper Team opted out and felt pretty validated about that decision when two competitors came in with downed masts. The Bacardi Cup regatta started Thursday and is wrapping on up Saturday. Check back here for results.
And huge thanks to our organizer, Tonja Sanchez Holmes Moon!
