Capri 25 Fleet Fleet #0


The WYC Capri 25 fleet is the largest Capri 25 fleet in the world. The Capri 25 is a one-design fleet of masthead keelboats that perform well in all kinds of weather conditions. Designed for southern California breeze, the boat is capable of moving well even in light air. In heavy wind, this boat is a handful. Typical crew is anywhere from 4 to 6 people consisting of a helmsman, trimmer, pit, foredeck, and tailor.

WYC Capri 25 Fleet History

It all started one day when Dallas was standing at the end of WYC’s Dock C with Larry Aubuchon and David Onan, then Commodore and Vice Commodore, respectively.  “We talked about an article in Sailing World magazine, which focused on one-design fleet racing and how neat it was", Dallas said.  Then we talked about the number of Capri 25’s racing in the handicap fleet and thought we could probably turn that into a new one-design fleet. We agreed to give it a try and made a deal.

Those two guys said they would take care of the process and the politics of making a new fleet work at our yacht club, and I would do all the grunt work.  Somehow that sounded like a great idea at the time, especially tapping into something our members were excited about and wanted.  This was my first really big project, after joining the club, and I became captain of the fleet.  What a great memory.
