Lido Fleet 7 Profile – Mission Bay Yacht Club, San Diego, CA
Lido Fleet 7 calls Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego home. Our fleet consists of 20 active racers as well as several additional day sailors. We have the pleasure of sailing in a venue that is tailormade for Lidos. Mission Bay offers flat water, afternoon breezes, and warm temperatures throughout the year.
Our sailors are a great reflection of the Lido’s ethos. Skipper and crew are typically family members and friends. On any given weekend, past national champions, Staff Commodores, and folks new to racing are on the start line together. Our feet members range in age from their 20s to their 80s. All are welcome.
Here in San Diego, we sail year-round. And there’s always a club race on the calendar. Big invitationals include the Pete Jefferson Memorial Regatta in May and our Fall Invitational in October. These regattas include multiple fleets and some of the best competitive one-design sailing in the country.
Whether it be a Sunday race or an invitational, racing ends on the Mission Bay Yacht Club deck. Sailors sit together with popcorn and refreshments. You’ll hear plenty of entertaining stories and tactical talk. If you’re in San Diego, stop on by!
