The opening rounds of racing for US Sailing’s Championship of Champions started today in Harbor 20’s within Newport Beach Harbor hosted by Balboa Yacht Club.
The winds started out light (4-6 knots) for the first two races. Many of the participants sorted out the nuances for racing these local boats. All in all there were 8 races today with the crews rotating boats every three races, with a crew of BYC volunteers spraying down the boat in between rotations.
