Monterey Bay hosts national
Moore 24 sailing competition

Thirteen identical sailboats crafted in Santa Cruz skimmed across the Monterey Bay Sunday afternoon to compete in the last day of the three-day Moore 24 Nationals. Every boat competing in the Moore 24 Nationals or Dolphin Cup is identical, which is why it's referred to as a one-design race. With that there's equality in craftsmanship when competing and rules that require keeping a maximum crew weight of 825 pounds with no limit on the amount of people a crew can have.The youngest participant was a 15-year-old sailor, who says she started sailing at the age of 12. The ages in this specific competition ranged between 15 and 46 years of age.
