Port to Port 2010

Thanks Sym for these pictures of Saturday’s party and Sunday’s
light wind start.

We could not have planned a better weather weekend, hot and sunny both days. On Saturday we got our downwind spinnaker run shortly after the start, and were able to keep them up almost the entire day. There were some holes to be found but Thatuna did a remarkable job of staying in the breeze and drove around the entire fleet. Saturday finished with Sea Puppy, an F 24 tri from Sequim being single handed all weekend by Bruce von Borstel crossing first, followed by Frank Lawson’s sharp J/105, john B, from Port Ludlow, and the Thatuna.

The barge had been reserved and stocked with pizza. Add some adult beverages, a lovely summer evening in Port Ludlow and it was hard to beat. A special thanx goes out to Sym Sebastian for putting together a great barge party, safe to say all had a good time there…

Sunday looked dismal for wind with a forecast of 3 building to 6. But as the race started in front of Port Ludlow we were given nice, fairly constant pressure. At the same time the slack disappeared and the ebb began to build.

Step’n Annie, ThaTuna, and NoName chose to seek better pressure and went across to Bush Point and had a great chase all the way to the finish line.  john B, Vivace and The Wizard picked the middle of the water. Impulse, betting on the first ebb showing up on the Marrowstone side aimed at Marrowstone Island and was swept around the corner along with Sea Puppy. The wind built to a great breeze all across the Inlet with all boats charging along on starboard, tacking only in search of more current.

Opportunity knocked for all boats only to be swept away by the current or a wind shift. Boats that stayed in the ebb were rewarded with a couple of knot boost but lose the current and you slowed. Several of the front pack found themselves swept back on their first try at Marrowstone Point requiring another tack or two to finally get clear.

In the end, Sea Puppy crossed the line first on both days followed by john B. It was a real treat to have such well sailed and interesting boats join in the fun and we look forward to crossing tacks with them again soon. Thanx for coming. With a second on on Saturday and a first on Sunday on corrected time, Impulse, sailed double handed came in first followed by Sea Puppy and john B.

A special thanx goes out to Sym Sebastian for putting together a great barge party in Port Ludlow, working RC on Sunday, and sending along some pictures. Also thanxs to Myron and Rob Marean for the start and finish line efforts in PT, and for “Flying J” committee boat duty’s in Port Ludlow.

Satch continues to contend that this is the best race of the year and it’s hard to argue that point. Remember, there is always next year!
