Sopwith Camel Racing (SCR) went wire-to-wire for a one race victory on October 18 during a pre-regatta match race with Up Hill Sailing (UHS).
The race was a tune up for Shields Fleet 20, which will enter two teams in Alamitos Bay Yacht Club’s (ABYC) annual Halloween Regatta on Saturday October 25.

The race was a long, two-lap course from Island Chafee up to the Long Beach Breakwater at spar buoy 36. SCR was the first to Mark 1 but Up Hill Sailing misread the course and continued upwind on beat 1, which opened up too great a deficit to overcome, even on the long course.
