The Fleet 1 Championship regatta is this coming weekend, September 24-25 at Newport Harbor Yacht Club. Competitors will be vying for a Championship title in all three divisions. In addition to take-home trophies, the winners of A, B, and C divisions will have their names added these beautiful perpetual trophies, which are perpetually displayed at NHYC.
For those who might think they are not qualified to sail in a championship, you are mistaken! If you qualify per Fleet 1 bylaws I.F.8 – I.F.10, you are invited! Someone’s name will be added to each of the perpetual trophies, and it could be yours!
Enjoy two days of racing and dinner at NHYC Saturday night during this, the concluding event of the 2021 – 2022 racing season for Fleet 1.

American Legion Yacht Club is preparing for the next Sail for the Visually Impaired event – October 8, 2022 – and is seeking volunteers to skipper, crew and to provide boats. Each year visually impaired guests and their escorts spend the day sailing with volunteers. This is a wonderfully successful event that involves over 150 volunteers and has been running since 1990.
The H20 is a perfect boat for this event. It is easy to get in and out, sits folks comfortably, and is low enough that participants can reach out an touch the water.
