With the help of several members in our District and the help of Racing Chairs of the hosting Yacht Clubs, our 2012 District 5 race schedule is now final (see right sidebar).
This season the District 5 Championship will be hosted by Newport Harbor Yacht Club on the weekend of June 30th and July 1st.
We are also continuing the “2012 Stump Peters Series”, a five regatta series first started last season (denoted by “SP” on schedule). The series brought out top teams in our district like Mark Reynolds /Hal Haenel and George Szabo / Mark Strube. Last season’s Stump Peter’s Series winners were:
1st George Szabo / Mark Strube
2nd Mark Reynolds / Hal Haenal
3rd Jim Buckingham and Crew

The District 5 Star Class Schedule is now final. This season will be a busy one. You will see a more coordinated effort to bring more Stars out to play and more Stars to travel to regattas throughout our District. We want to thank all members and their respective yacht clubs for their continued support of the Star Class. Special thanks to California Yacht Club, San Diego Yacht Club, Santa Barbara Yacht Club, San Diego Yacht Club, New Port Harbor Yacht Club, and St. Francis Yacht Club.
