The Ted Pike Memorial Race — 2016 Results

The enthusiasm for this race was obvious as many boats were already anchored out when the RC arrived  (early) to set up the registration  and start area on the beach near the SE boundary of Fort Warden.  The hot sunny weather was welcome but it could have been wished for the NW wind to be more than 5 kts.  Nine boats came out including the honored Annie Too and the venerable Dorjun.  As can be seen in the accompanying video, everyone was respectfully attired in PT Formal, as Ted would have expected.  Notice  the apparent lack of the CG required flotation devices, these were of course safely stowed in the tenders.  It was low tide so there was plenty of beach with firm sand from which to operate.

The course selected was SMBDIYGTCBF, 8 nm., a circuit of the bay which, had the wind cooperated, should have given a good test of sailing skills on all points of sail in and out of current, and was almost as complicated as the Tour-de-Bay course.   Due to the light wind the start was relatively uneventful, without congestion or contact.  Events of note where Dorjun expertly backing her sails to stay off the beach, Sparkle leaving a swimmer dangling in the water while they stowed their paddle board, and the copious samples of bottom life that came up with the anchors.

The wind was fair for the early stages of the race but became light and variable inside the bay.  The first three boats were able to make good use of the wind while it lasted and completed the 8 nm. in a little over two hours.  As the wind had become very light and patchy the course was shortened to 6.5 nm. for the B fleet to avoid DNFs.   The last finishers needed over 3 hours to claim their rum.

Dorjun, whose rig was designed for a much more rugged environment, retired from the race on the far side of the course.  Limfiord (after sampling the rum) confessed to using her engine to avoid drifting into the tower and accepted a DSQ.

The first running of this event was agreed by all to be a lot of fun, definitely a fitting memorial to Ted, who would have loved it.  We look forward to its reputation spreading to those who missed it and to those beyond the local area.  The RC also had a great deal of fun, the satisfaction of a successful event, and are open to any suggestions for  improvements for next year.

Many thanks to Jim Heumann for the video which captures the spirit of the afternoon beautifully.
