October 2017 Race Results

After an August race cut short by the doldrums and a September race cancelled all together by uninvited guest Hurricane Irma, The Sailing Club help it’s first full race since July. Our patience was rewarded with 8 – 10 knot winds and zero rain. Once again the point totals were extremely close, save for a malfunctioning Sunfish.

June 2017 Race Results

The June race began with all eyes on the horizon as thunderstorms were in the forecast.  There were three rookie racers on the water as well as five of the usual suspects.  It may have been the closest race in years with a three way tie for second place points and just two points separating first place.  Penny and Rick showed how important it is to keep accurate time.  After portsmouth corrections were applied, just one second separated second and third place.  Because of the looming storm, the second race was shortened to just one lap.  In a show of mercy, the rain arrived just as the gate was being locked up with all the boats properly stowed.  From there the post-race activities were moved to the pavilion over at the dog park.

April 2017 Race Results

The wind was perfect for racing on 4/19….at 5pm….when the boats were getting stowed for the night.  Nevertheless it appeared just often enough that we were able to fit in all three races.  In his first race with the club, Matthew showed us all how it’s done.  When a puff came through the course, he was right on top of it, increasing his lead with every one.  Here are the complete results:

March 2017 Race Results

The Sailing Club capped of the winter and welcomed in the spring this Sunday with a fantastic BBQ prepared by Greg and Kathy. The annual Spring Fling usually brings out more members and this year was no exception. We had six Hunter 140’s on the water for the race, as well as one Sunfish out for a leisure sail. There were very light winds in the first couple races and even one near dead stop in the second race. In that second race on the final leeward leg, there was a fair amount of distance among the fleet. The lead boat around six boat lengths from rounding the leeward mark…at a dead stop. One boat was maybe 100 yards away, barely inching along. The rest of the fleet was crawling towards them, but back near the windward mark. This is when a lake Baldwin brought us a little puff, starting at windward of course. The back of the fleet caught the puff first and two minutes later all six boats were coming up on the leeward mark all together. It made for a fun finish. For the third race, it was getting late but the wind had picked up dramatically. After some kicking and screaming from the fleet, Rick agreed to run the third race, but only a single lap. I guess we need better negotiating so that the wind arrives before the race rather than after. Here are the results.

February 2017 Race Results

The February race had a little bit of everything. There was some mid-race re-rigging, some course confusion, more than one capsize and plenty of wind and sunshine. There were three first time racers, Paul, Al and Michele. Here are the results:
