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.

January 2017 Race Results

The first race of 2017 is in the books.  Two new racers joined the group this month, Louisa and Reed.  The wind was up and down and then up again.  The course was setup near the Baldwin Park Gazebo.  Multiple times there were three boats rounding a mark all together, giving spectators a good show.  The point totals for the day were all separated by just one point each.  Rick and Louisa took first place.  The fun will continue next month, Feb 12th.
