Five disparate boats came out for a warm sunny afternoon on the water.  The goal was a trip from City Dock around the yellow mid channel buoy SC, off Bush Point and back to City Dock, ~15 miles.   The wind on the dock at the start was a steady Southeasterly at a brisk 8 kts.  After the start, as the fleet headed out of the bay on a long starboard tack, it was noticeable that their heel increased as the wind grew and they joined the flood.  There was a light chop towards the mid channel where the wind was against the current. Even though, reportedly, the wind began to die as the returning fleet re-entered the bay, boats finished the course in under 3.5 hours and closely bunched enough for handicaps to become effective.

Both Falcon and Second Wind reported spinnaker handling problems on the return leg.  Second Wind was short handed and the spinnaker won the fight.

It looked like great sailing and it is a pity that more sailors were not able to be out to enjoy it.

NOTE:-  Don’t forget the Ted Pike Memorial race on Aug 20 th.  If you have not received an invitation contact Doug Jones at doug@traditionalboatworks.net
