TAHOE CITY, Calif. — The Tahoe Yacht Club is inviting members and guests to a fundraiser and presentation from club sailor Erica Mattson Siegel about her experience competing in the Pacific Cup.

Siegel and her stepfather competed the roughly 3,000-mile race from Honolulu, Hawaii to San Francisco last summer. The two managed to finish the trip in less than 14 days, sailing their Moore 24 vessel named Accelerando to a seventh-place finish in their division.

The presentation will take place at the Tahoe Yacht Club in Tahoe City at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4. The event costs $20 per person and $10 for children under age 12. Soup, salad, bread, and dessert will be provided.

All proceeds go toward supporting the Tahoe Yacht Club’s junior sailing program. For reservations call 530-581-4700 or email
