Wednesday Night Race

Its been a long standing tradition at Miramar to host Wednesday night races for Ensign class boats, fleet 21. However, as our Ensign boats are becoming more and more customized; some has roller furling - some don't, some has outboard - some don't, sails are all different shapes and age. So, it's been decided to host these Wednesday night races for all boats close to Ensign class. Thus, sometimes you see C&C25 'ELKA' or Colgate 24 on the starting line. Still, these races are fun and winners are awarded with prizes.

Current year, 2018, promisses to be the most challenging and interesting. Our Fleet 21 add THE BEE'S KNEES, Ensign Hull#612, Skipper David Chin, and MOOSE has returned to its previous owner Alex Dunajsky who will be racing again as a club member.

EL MENEITO upgraded it's rigging and refreshed sails. Fun begins Wednesday, May 30th, 2018.

Wow! Due to his perseverance, UFORIA skippered by Andrew Shabalin wrested the victory from SPLASH skippered by Richard Lubell. The cup now has a new home. CELEST, skippered by Leon Paley is taking third place.
