One Design Racing

It was light and fluky day on Sunday for the Flying Scot, Front Runner and San Juan 21 sailors racing in the 2nd Spring Series.  After postponing on the water for an hour and a half 3 races were finally run in the early afternoon.  Each race conincided with a 180 wind shif resulting the course needing to be flip flopped before each one.

In the Flying Scot Fleet it was Jay Buhl/Mike Karn navigating the light air the best and winning 2 of the 3 races to take the fleet.  Winning one of the races was Len Guenther in his brand new boat - the boat remains undefeated as he retired for further prep.  Phil ...

We couldn't have asked for a much nicer day on Saturday for the One Design Invitational.  Four Front Runners and 3 San Juan 21s and Geoff Cahill were out racing on a day that started with light winds in a building sea breeze and mostly sunny skies. 

PRO Parker Garrett and his crew of Young Adult Members set a 1/4 mile course with a windward mark just off Stove Point.  The sound signals were a little unconventional but let's just say Parker has a way with horns.

The Front Runner racing was close all the way around.  Boren and Squires were both sailing a Front Runner for the first time and were having ...

Hope everyone enjoyed the racing on Sunday - here is the 3rd place write-up:

Apparently the planets are back in alignment. The wind was a seabreeze, the humidity has begun to make itself known, and the Commodore ain’t typing this summary. Last Sunday’s racing got started after the fleet waited on the dock for an hour for the wind to fill in from the SE. Tom Roberts and his merry crew (Blackwell, Mike, Kate, Russ) wasted no time setting up a W course and then switching over to H courses once the wind “settled in.” Before one start my compass had the wind 35 degrees different at the boat than at the pin.

The universe must have a ripple in it, because there is NO way I should be writing this up. I already have a writing job for the year and this ain’t it! The past Sunday we had a near perfect day for sailing with eight Scots and three San Juan 21’s sharing the starting line. The day taught us many things and some of us were faster learners than others. Things learned were how to sail on lakes, mark entry/exits, how to sail an Olympic course.

How to sail on lakes ….UH…Wake - we were sailing on a tidal river! This is true EXCEPT when the wind blows from the north then all bets are off. The wind on ...
