Last weekend on October 14th and 15th CdM Sea King sailors sailed their first varsity regatta of the year. Four teams of sailors were sent up the coast to Monterey where The Sea Otter Regatta was hosted by Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club. Sixty-three other boats from all over California raced a total of 24 races, 14 the first day, and 10 the second.
On the first day of racing, light winds and strong currents challenged the sailors as the wind gradually picked up to a total of 16 knots with puffs of wind at 20. The heavier crews were then switched in and unfortunately the wind then died which made it difficult for sailors to move their boats.
On day two the races were postponed as there was barely enough wind to sail. Eventually the race committee started the sailors in extremely light winds where it eventually picked up but barely.
Sailors, coaches, and parents watched the races from the beach and the pier. Last year CdM won and the year prior to that they placed third. This year Point loma won with a total 47 points, Dos Pueblos placed second with 64 point, and CdM came in third with 90 points. CdM kept up with the trend of beat Newport Harbor as they placed fourth with a total of 112 points.
