The mid-summer regatta, held to celebrate the longest day of the year has become a fun tradition. A full day of racing with a dock party and trophies after. All boats are welcome PHRF and Thunderbird. This year it is being held on 6/15/2019. You can find all the details and register on line at our US Sailing Regatta Network page. Note, however, that there is a ten boat minimum in order to hold the race. If that number of boats have not registered by 6/5/2019 the race will be cancelled and all registration fees refunded. So talk to your friends and get them to come out – it’s going to be a fun day.
This event generated a high level of frustration for all concerned. On leaving harbor the RC found a very light Northwesterly breeze which the wind shadows showed to be very patchy. A temporary Windward mark was set few hundred feet into the darkest wind shadow and the CB headed downwind to set the S/F line towards the other edge of the wind shadow. Before setting the line it was necessary to wait much of an hour as the wind direction cycled through ±15° every few minutes while the mean direction slowly veered to the North. (more…)
To celebrate the completion of the Wednesday Sunshine Series, and the PHRF Whitecap Series, all racers (and all members of PTSA) are invited to a dock party after racing this Wednesday. Bratwurst will be provided. Please bring your own drinks and any side dishes you would like. The location is Boat Haven, A-dock, on Tbird row. Please help get the word out – it’s going to be fun.
The whole starting fleet crowds the line to finish Race 7!
