LTJG Kyle C. McArthur was born and raised in Coronado, CA.  An avid sailor and all-around athlete, he was named one of the top senior athletes at Coronado High School by the Coronado Rotary Club.  He attended the United States Naval Academy where he was a member of the sailing and lacrosse teams.  After graduating from the Naval Academy, McArthur trained as a Naval Aviator and carrier qualified in a T-45 on the USS George W. Bush.  A short time later, on June 16, 2013, he died as a result of an automobile accident.

Kyle McArthur was a wonderful young man, a proud Naval Aviator and a great sailor who loved being out on the water more than most. He understood how much sailing could mean to those with disabilities because he often took his disabled sister out on the water with him, and saw the joy a day on the boat brought to her. We began this Regatta to honor Kyle and to support Challenged Sailors San Diego because he would be proud to know he is still helping others to enjoy the life of a sailor.

Challenged Sailors San Diego provides therapeutic and recreational adaptive sailing opportunities for people with disabilities to enhance their dignity, well being, and independence. The Martin 16 sailboats that are used are adapted for sailors so that no matter their disability, THEY get to run the boat. Sailors are partnered with an experienced volunteer who assures safety, but allows the sailor to run the race, manage the sails and build a sense of confidence, autonomy, and accomplishment

Your support of this event and Challenged Sailors San Diego will help all sailors, no matter their disability, enjoy their day on the water.

Each day of the regatta will start and finish at the Coronado Yacht Club in Glorietta Bay. Excellent race viewing is available at the yacht club and all along the south-west shore of Glorietta Bay (in front of the Coronado Civic Center and Glorietta Bay Park).

Saturday evening festivities include a Mexican taco-bar dinner,  live music, and a raffle/silent auction at Coronado Yacht Club (starting at 5:30pm). Dinner tickets can be purchased via the Donate buttons above, or at the yacht club in advance on Friday evenings or on the day of the event. 

​Following the completion of racing on Sunday there will be a reception and awards presentation.
