On Tuesday the 28th of June, MBYC hosted this year’s Sears triple-handed qualifier. Each club sent their top 3 sailors to compete in Lightnings to see who would get to represent the Southern California area “J” at the Sears championship at the end of the summer.
MBYC was represented by 3 sailors, Mariana Shand, Max Karmel, and Diego Escobar. The teamwork and great attitudes they showed during the competition and practice almost warranted a trophy on its own. Even though we didn’t win the qualifier, Team MBYC worked hard, even winning some of the races, and placed 5th overall.
A big thank you to MBYC’s Lightning fleet for providing the race boats for the sailors.
