Sail On

congressionalcup

The weather may have been a little questionable lately, but it’s coming around! It may still be a little windy, but that makes for some entertaining sailboat racing. The Congressional Cup is back, and the races start tomorrow. Internationally-renowned skippers will travel from New Zealand, England, and beyond to come and battle it out on the waters off Long Beach. World class sailors will tell you the Congressional Cup is pure match racing – a true test of sailing ability. These top sailors have traveled to Long Beach to compete in what has been called the Grandfather of Modern Match Racing. Pure match racing means boats are precisely uniform, which creates an opportunity to truly measure sailing strategy and skills. The best part is, you can view the races right here in BS. The best viewing spot is right on the Belmont Pier. Races begin at 11:30 and run through April 2nd. It’s FREE to attend, and is family-friendly. But it’s not like you even need an excuse to chill out on the pier and enjoy our beautiful SoCal sunshine…
