As part of the upcoming Women’s Sailing Association-Orange County’s next general meeting—7 p.m., Sept. 1 at Aventura Sailing Association—local sailboat racer, Sue Senescu will present a discussion titled, “Why Race?: Racing 101.”

Senescu is well-known throughout Southern California and beyond as an avid racer and owner of a Class 40, Yippie Kai Yay, which was custom built for offshore racing in the Pacific.

She will talk about why sailors make the leap from cruising to racing, the science of racing, and the teamwork and trust that comes from working together as a crew. She will share some ideas on how to plug into the local racing community and teach the basics of what it takes to enter the world of racing. This will be a great opportunity for those who’ve never raced but always wanted to, as well as for seasoned racers to learn what it takes to be on a winning boat.

WSA-OC is currently recruiting and training a race team to compete in local regattas throughout Southern California. This will be a great meeting to attend for those interested in learning more about the team.

Membership in WSA-OC is open to both women and men and the public is invited to attend as prospective members.

Aventura Sailing Association is located at 24707 Dana Drive in Dana Point Harbor. For more information, visit or or email
