San Diego Yacht Club

February 7-9, 2014


February 9, 2014 (San Diego, CA)

Doug Hart and Ryan Hopps of Mission Bay, CA had what might be called a ”down and up” day on the third day of racing at the San Diego YC, but at the end of the seven race series they nipped SDYC’s Rick Arneson and Diana Waterbury by four points to win the Snipe District 6 Championship and picked up the qualifying slot for this year’s Western Hemisphere and Orient Championship that was up for grabs for the winner.

With an OCS in Race 6, which became their drop race, and a 4th place finish in in the final race to go with other scores of 2, 1, 6, 2, and 3.  Hart and Arneson were tied at 14 all after 6 races, but Arneson slipped to an 8th place finish.

One qualifying position for the Western Hemisphere and Orient Championship  was available at the regatta for the highest-placing female team.  Carol Cronin and Kim Couranz, sailing our of  Severn Sailing Assn, MD, won this spot.
