The Christmas holiday is always a highlight on the LISOT calendar because it brings an opportunity for some warm weather mini training camps and the annual Orange Bowl Regatta hosted by the Coral Reef Yacht Club.

The Orange Bowl Regatta is one of the few national events that host all youth classes at the same time. Optimists, Club 420's, International 420's Laser 4.7, Laser Radial and Laser Full rig are all sailing in the same event, This year is the 33rd running of the regatta. The regatta started today, December 27th, and runs through December 30th. There are more than 700 youth sailors participating and once again LISOT has one of the largest teams in attendance.

LISOT has 18 Optimist sailors, 36 420 sailors (between 9 C420's and 9 I420's) and 9 Laser Radials making a total of 63 sailors.
