The 2014 Herb Shear Classic was held on May 17-18 at Mission Bay Yacht Club.

23 Teams took to the course to compete for top honors while 3 Classic Snipes were on display all weekend as a bit of eye candy. Everyone was glad that the hot and dry Santa Ana conditions abated for the event and gave Fire Crews all over Southern California a welcome change in fortunes as well.

Wind direction was a very shifty Southwest all weekend. About 10-12 knots on Saturday and 7-10 on Sunday made sure that everyone had their chance at the front of the fleet at some point (even if it was short lived while Randy Lake and Kate Shehan flew by).
