This weekend finds DCYC sailors at the coast for two different events. In the first, Lucija Ruzevic is competing in the 2017 US Youth Championships. Read this from their website:
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (June 21, 2017) – For the second time since 2013, the Corpus Christi Yacht Club will host the pinnacle event for youth sailing in the United States. The 2017 US Youth Championships will bring together over 175 of America’s top youth sailors, with qualification for the 2017 Youth Sailing World Championships on the line in four of the six classes. Sailors under 20, both young men and women, will race on Corpus Christi Bay over four days, beginning Sunday, June 25 through Wednesday, June 28.
As with all US Sailing Junior and Youth National Championships, competitors will receive world-class event management and support. The 2017 U.S. Youth Championships will be run by a team of experienced judges, coaches and race officers who will provide high quality racing for America’s top youth talent. Since the first edition of the Youth Champs in 1973, the regatta has served as a transformative step for young sailors who aspire to reach the highest levels of sailing. U.S. Youth Championship participants fill the rosters of successful college sailing programs and routinely achieve All-American status. The Youth Champs is also part of the pathway for ambitious athletes who hope to earn a place on the US Sailing Team, and ultimately at the Olympic Games.
Lucija has worked tirelessly to earn her spot at this event and we know she will do well.
We are so very proud of you, Lucija! SAIL FAST!
Also at the coast this weekend are two of DCYC’s J/24 teams competing in the 2017 Beasley Cup at the Houston Yacht Club, the fourth circuit stop for the Texas J/24s: Chris Holmes with TEAM BADMOON and James Freedman with TEAM MISS CONDUCT.
We are proud of our J/24 teams! SAIL FAST, Y’ALL!!
