All levels of participants in Youth Sailing Foundation’s programs have opportunities to experience the fun, intense excitement of regattas. Regattas give our sailors the chance to hone their skills by racing against a diverse group of sailors. Our Vero Beach High School sailing team, in particular, competes in a number of regattas throughout the school year in various locations around the state of Florida.
New this season was the First Annual Fall 420 Regatta on Saturday, November 19, hosted by YSF at our facility south of the 17th Street bridge in Vero Beach. This regatta was open to teen 420 sailors and proved to be a fun day of racing on the beautiful Indian River Lagoon. See blog and race results.
Since 2014, Youth Sailing Foundation has hosted the annual Steve Martin Memorial Regatta. The event includes competition in multiple fleets, including high school 420 teams, Optimist class, and Open Class for beach-launched performance dinghies and multihulls. Held in March each year, the event is named for Steve Martin, a dedicated instructor and supporter of Youth Sailing Foundation, who exemplified the quintessential sailor with decades of sailing experience. Martin passed away in 2013.
This year’s SMMR will be held Saturday, March 11 at the YSF facility in Vero Beach. NOR and registration information have been posted here.
