San Diego Yacht Club

One-Design Club Award 


Past Commodore Bill Munster of the San Diego Yacht Club accepted the One-Design Club Award, given to recognize administrative excellence, fleet growth, creative programming, regatta support, and member contribution-at regional, national, and international levels. The San Diego Yacht Club has for many years strongly supported all one-design class participation, having produced national and world champions in the Etchells, Melges 24, Star, PC, Sabot, Opti, FJ, and Harbor 20 classes.

The Club’s numbers are impressive: The Etchells fleet has grown from three boats in 1985 to over 35 boats currently racing. Members of the Melges fleet won this year’s Worlds, and 13 class world champions have come from the San Diego Yacht Club.

A program which was started three years ago allows inner-city children to participate in the club’s junior program. It fosters interest in sailing and helps junior members of SDYC develop friendships with less fortunate children.
