DCYC Commodore 2019
RICHMOND, Calif. (July 14, 2019) – At the 2019 U.S. Junior Women’s Singlehanded Championship, representing Dallas Corinthian Yacht Club, Lucija Ruzevic (Denton, Texas) claimed victory in the Laser Radial fleet and local, Hailey Thompson (Kentfield, Calif.) represented San Francisco Yacht Club in the 4.7 fleet. The young women edged out a total of 43 competitors to claim the 2019 trophy and titles as National Champions. The Nancy Leiter Clagett Memorial Trophy is awarded to Ruzevic, as the winner of the Radial fleet.
This year’s edition of the event was hosted by Richmond Yacht Club, located in Richmond, Calif. Ruzevic and Thompson triumphed in typical bay area conditions, facing moderate-to-heavy breeze and one-to-three-foot chop. Across the four final races, both finished in first place three times, and in second once. Their results in these races allowed each of them to clinch the Championship.
While this is Thompson’s first appearance at the event, Ruzevic returned after competing at the 2017 edition. After finishing in sixth-place then, she was pleased to climb up the scoreboard this week, “I’ve sailed this regatta twice now, and I’ve worked really hard over these past few years. So, it’s nice to walk away with the win.”
The U.S. Junior Women’s Championship was started in 1980 by C. Thomas Clagett Jr. (Washington, D.C.) at the Ida Lewis Yacht Club in Newport, R.I. Competitors sailed for a trophy in memory of Tom’s wife, Nancy Leiter Clagett (Washington, D.C.) who passed away in April, 1977. The clinic preceding the event is made possible by the funds provided by the late C. Thomas Clagett Jr. to perpetuate his unwavering dedication to Junior Women’s Sailing. As a national sponsor of US Sailing, Sperry and Hobie Polarized provide support to all 2019 U.S. Sailing Championships.

Dear DCYC Family,
First, let me thank everyone who has been volunteering to make this a great event. Also each of you that have signed up to participate in the 2019 Corinthian Heritage Cup Regatta. It means a great deal to me and the other volunteers that so many have chosen our regatta for competing with each other and sharing good times during our annual party.
Without any further beating around the mark, I must inform you that we are postponing the Corinthian Heritage Cup until later in the year. Tentatively, we are looking at the weekend of July 13 for the new date. This will be discussed in the upcoming board meeting, so let some of your Board of Governors know what you think.
For those of you that have already paid, we will be returning your payments in the next few days (I do not know how long it takes to get these reimbursements to go through from Regatta Network, but I will work very hard to make it happen as quickly as possible).
If you are one of the J/24 racers, the District 14 Southwest Championship will be moved to the Corpus Christi Circuit Stop scheduled for June 15-16 in Corpus Christi, TX and you will soon receive more information about that from Tonja Holmes-Moon and John Parker.
In making this decision, I and other regatta chairs from prior years looked at a lot of data from the Army Corps of Engineers and spoke with several of the marina operators in the area. We also made several phone calls to mobile crane operators and officials at the two remaining (open) boat ramps on the lake in a desperate effort to find a safe way to continue with this regatta. As of this afternoon, we have been left with no options and have made our final decision.
Lewisville Lake has never dropped faster than 4" per day, and that is only when the flood gates are wide open at 6,000+ cfs (cubic feet per second). Currently they are at 3,640 cfs, but with the upstream inflow, the net release is ~ 1,840 cfs. Even under the very best conditions, the lake will still be over 524.5 ft. which is still too high to operate safely. Most likely, with the flooding along the Trinity River and rain expected next week, the level will be above 525.5 ft.
Please accept my sincerest apologies and feel free to reach out to me if you have questions or do not see your payment returned within the next 10 days.

Based on her recent competitive successes, DCYC's own Lucija Ruzevic just learned that she has been invited to participate in the US Sailing's Olympic Development Program Training Camp to be held in June. This is on the heels of her securing a second place finish for the Youth Sailing World Championships. She was also one of just a few youth to received early acceptance to sail in the US Sailing Youth Championships in New Jersey this summer. On a local level, Lucija founded a sailing team at Denton High School which can compete in the Interscholastic Sailing Association.
Way to sail hard, Lucija! We are so proud of you!
