My First Thistle Regatta

On Sunday, July 8th, I participated in the Thistle Racing Academy "Learning to be a race crew" at the Mission Bay Yaught Club (MBYC).


I had such a great time. Mike Poltorak led the clinic for about 14 of us new crew. We watched a Thistle Sailing video, demonstrations of rigging, tacking and setting and gybing the spinnaker. Then, we participated in a hands-on demonstration of the crew work and boat handling. Then, Mike assigned us to boats and we went out on the water. We practiced for about 30 minutes. Then, we began the MBYC races. There were three short races. It was great, I was able to participate in my first Regatta! Hopefully I will be able to do another one sometime soon.


Thank you Mission Bay Yaught Club for letting me participate in your Thistle Racing Academy!
