For those sailors who have an on the Los Angeles Olympic Games in the year 2028, the inaugural San Diego Olympic Classes Regatta (SDOCR) will offer a venue for sailors to compete and train in high-performance international class races. The event will start on October 5 and will conclude in 7th , 2018. The authorities of SDOCR are planning to make the SDOCR an annual event.
Mark Reynolds, the SDYC sailor and two-time Olympic gold medalist speaking about the event shared his memories for the regatta and said. “At the time when I was a kid, at San Diego, we used to have Olympic trials. And after 8 years, I was lucky to get the chance to attend the Olympics of 1976 helping Dennis Conner as well as setting me on my way to try out for the Olympics. I tried hard and after a few tries, my dream of being the part of Olympic came true. It is really good to see how the young sailors at SDYC have the same opportunities that I got. Like me if they will focus on their game and will work hard enough, then competing in the Olympic Games can be their future also. I am really excited to hear that an Olympic Classes Regatta is now coming to San Diego and this year will be followed by the LA Olympics in 2028.”
