CONGRATULATIONS TO TOP FINISHERS OF THE 2022 ILCA DISTRICT 22 GRAND PRIX (Sponsored by WEST COAST SAILING)
The 2022 ILCA DISTRICT 22 GRAND PRIX this year was a six regatta series which kicked-off in April at the CYC Puget Sound Spring Regatta and concluded at the CYC Turkey Bowl a few weeks ago. Sponsored by West Coast Sailing, the District 22 Grand Prix is structured to reward ILCA members who participate in multiple ILCA regattas throughout the District (WA, OR, ID, MT). Winners were based on a high point scoring system, accumulating points from finishes in all eligible regattas. My thanks to Dave Jursik and CGRA for managing the registration and scoring at cgra.org.
This year, the regattas included in the series were the CYC Seattle PSSR, Vancouver Lake Sailing Club’s DeBenedetti, CGRA Wind, CGRA CGOD, Sail Sand Point Octoberfest, and the CYC Seattle Turkey Bowl. We appreciate and thank all the clubs who hosted these regattas.
