Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, the home of the CISA Clinic since 1978 who generously turns over the club to us for 4 days in the peak of the sailing season every year. Thank you to all of your members and staff for hosting us!

Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, Balboa Yacht Club, Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club, Coronado Yacht Club, Long Beach Yacht Club, Newport Harbor Yacht Club, Newport Beach Sailing and Seamanship Association, and San Diego Yacht Club
