SAN DIEGO, Calif. (January 19, 2012) - The Southern California Youth Yacht Racing Association (SCYYRA) is pleased to announce its 2012 Racing Team.
Each year SCYYRA sponsors a program to recognize advanced junior sailors from Southern California who have shown tremendous dedication and accomplishment in youth sailing. A select number of the top junior sailors from San Diego to Santa Barbara are chosen to become members of the annual SCYYRA Racing Team and invited to participate in advanced sailing clinics and otherwise be recognized.
Selection of each year’s team is based on regatta results between September 1st and August 31st, as well as age, ability, sportsmanship and geographic location. With seven different sailboat classes and a total of over 250 youth sailors competing throughout the year from San Diego to Santa Barbara, these nineteen (19) youth sailors are Southern California’s “Best of the Best”.
