URBANNA RACE OFF / ROSEGILL ON
The Deltaville to Urbanna Race scheduled for today, May 25th, has been canceled because of high winds blowing down the river. The social event at Rosegill this afternoon and night will take place as scheduled.
A word to the wise: Driving under the influence this weekend will be severly punished in Middlesex County.

During the upcoming Memorial Day weekend there will be two private events taking place in the main clubhouse.

The final high point standings are posted. Awards will be presented at Rosegill this coming Saturday. Congratulations to the skippers who placed in their classes. Thanks to everyone for a successful 2013 Spring Series. Don’t forget that this weekend is Race to Urbanna. The list of racing entries is a little light so if you intend to race please sign up. While you are at it, remember to sign up for the Long Distance series that starts June 22nd with the Moonlight Regatta followed by ice cream with Goslings topping. Finally, good luck to those doing Down the Bay starting this Friday.

The interim high point results have been posted to the FBYC web site. This is for informational purposes only and the scores are not final. The results are organized by fleet. There are 3 pages in each result set. The first page is the summary of daily scores as recorded in low point. The second page is the raw high point conversions, scores, and calculated participation. The third page is the current standings summary and ranking; excluding boats whose participation level did not meet the 51% or greater eligibility requirement. The third page is the page that shows the "final" series results once they are final of course.
Overall, I realize the computation here is different from the way it’s been in the past. But hopefully you will see the value that this systems offers. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Since when can the weathermen predict the weather, let alone the future? That’s what many racers were asking before Saturday’s Offshore Spring Series III coupled with a little Back to the Future storm reference. What started out as a miserable day early in the morning turned out to be warm, partly sunny day with 10-15 kt. breezes out of the southwest. To top it off it was a great day of sailing and racing.
Certainly, one thing unpredictable was the results and nobody’s clock was safe this day...

FBYC Spring Series racers got in three races on this past Saturday. Action will continue on this coming Saturday, May 18th, as Day 4 of the 2013 series takes place. For all the race by race details and to figure the current standings, please go to www.fbyc.net and click on the applicable results.
PHRF of the CHESAPEAKE Update: The difficulty our friends at PHRF have had this year with the ratings database is not news. However, they have been working away at it and now have more than 400 of the 2013 ratings processed. So, if you have not applied for renewal (whether you received a renewal reminder notice or not), you need to do so. The easiest way to renew is to go to www.phrfchesbay.org and click on “Application and Renewal” – you can even pay there. Straightforward renewals are going through more quickly because the handicappers do not have to be involved in the process, as happens when there are changes to the boat, sails, etc. You can also check out the updated Valid List at the website.

Offshore fleet: Spring Series III is this Saturday and after a nearly three week hiatus it’s time to get back on the water. There are currently four races completed in the series and competition is tight. Remember that we are using the High Point Percentage Scoring (HPPS) system this year to determine series results. If you have only raced one day of the series, you are currently at 50% eligibility (2 out of 4 races). While HPPS is designed to account for a missed day, you must sail in 51% or more of the total races to be eligible for overall series scoring. After Spring Series III we will publish interim (not final) high point standings. This will allow the fleet to see HPPS in action, realize the benefits of the scoring approach, and help folks formulate a strategy to gain the needed points to seize a place in the series. For details on HPPS please reference Offshore GSI’s 13.2.
So enough on the technical information, right? Saturday is looking like a promising Spring day on the Chesapeake with a nice southerly breeze. Come out, race, and enjoy the competition!
Standby next week for an update on the high point standings as we break them down to determine who needs to defend their position and who is in the running to overtake the high point leaders.
See you on the water,

Solid turnout for the Laser clinic and the racing that followed today - total participation was 15 sailors, of whom eight stayed for racing. The conditions were a bit blustery, with puffs in the 20's. Dan Herlihy, with a 2nd place for a throwout, sailed a consistent set of races to take the win. Mike Moore from Virginia Beach was 2nd, followed by Alain Vincey, who beat Mike Toms on a tiebreaker for 3rd.
