2010 White Cap Race 3

from Myron Gauger and the Race Committee

16 boats came out for a banquet of weather. Twice around was indicated in case the wind built, which it did when it wasn’t dead. Nine boats finished the second lap so the race was scored as twice around.

Race 3 deserves a title like “sailing in a weather front.” The windward/leeward course started in a light but slightly building northerly. Rounding the windward mark, two chutes went up just before the wind shifted 180 degrees so the second leg was also windward. Shortly after some boats rounded the “leeward” mark, the wind again shifted 180 degrees. Throw in a brief easterly, a couple of longer westerly’s, a few sprinkles, a double rainbow, a sunset shining under multiple cloud layers and ending in a strong soak cycle—what more can you ask for spring racing on the bay?!?
