Walt Elliott Challenge

 On May 15, ASPBYC held the 2022 Walt Elliott Challenge hosted by Long Beach Yacht Club.  This year's challenge was contested by teams from Shoreline Yacht Club, Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club, Seal Beach Yacht Club, Alamitos Bay Yacht Club and the host Long Beach Yacht Club.  Despite a heavy fog, which postponed the event for an hour and winds that shifted 20-30 degrees at a time, we were able to get off 2 of the 3 scheduled races.  In the end,  LBYC Vice Commodore Blair Carty's team was able to hold off a strong challenge by ABYC to win the event.
