According to PTSA tradition, the Whitecap was to run on Friday evenings from the start of Daylight Saving Time to the Classic Mariner’s Regatta. This was intended to allow the PHRF fleet to hone their skills before competing in the CMR. This is particularly important now the CMR is no longer restricted to wooden boats. So it was incorrect to label lasts week’s report as the Final standings. Friday’s race was #5 in the the series and there are more to come.
The wind at the dock while setting the course was Northerly around 5 kts., stronger away from the shore. In an attempt to provide a windward start, and because the sea state suggested stronger winds outside the bay the course SMCTF was posted. This allowed for shortening course at C and, as the wind backed to a Westerly (and grew towards 15kts.) CTF made good leeward/windward legs.
There was general confusion about how to handle the finish mark F due to approaching it from an unaccustomed direction. The F was solid so it was to be left to port. A boat approaching from the east (on Stbd. in this instance) just crosses the S/F line in the normal manner. A boat coming from the SW has to round F in order to cross the S/F line in the right direction (F to Port). No penalties were assessed as nearly every boat got it wrong.
NOTE:- Due to several requests, the start time for the Friday PHRF races may move to 18:00 hrs. Expect the 6 horn blast Alert signal at 17:54 hrs. If this truly presents a problem for any competitor, notify the RC ASAP to seek an accommodation.
