Fall Nightcap Series – 2017. Races 6-A & 6-B Results and Standings (Corrected)

There was little wind when the CB left the Boat Haven but in the Bay, away from shore, there was a light Northeasterly. This is normally an unstable wind direction so course SCFLF (2 nm. – “L” was 1/4 mi SW of the Boat Haven entrance) was set to allow shortening course if the […]

Fall Nightcap Series – 2017. Race 5 Results and Series Standings

There were gale warnings in the strait and the forecasts for the bay all said winds in the 20’s with gusts in the 30’s. So, although the wind in the Boat Haven was only 12 – 14 kts., the mandated consensus meeting at the CB attracted representatives from six boats. It was eventually decided to […]

Fall Nightcap Series – 2017. Race 4 Results

Course SGYF was […]

Fall Nightcap Series – Race 3 Results

With the temporary indisposition of the regular PRO, Joe Daubenberger generously volunteered to run this week’s race by setting up the course from the CB then running a “Barcott” start from the water.

The 20 – 25 kt. winds of the previous night died rapidly during the morning until, by race time the only stable, […]

Fall Nightcap Series – Race 2

Last week Race 1 was abandoned after a false start and an hour and a half delay waiting for the intermittent light breeze to stabilize while slowly shifting from SE to NW. This week the forecast was for conditions to be similar for Race 2. In defiance of the forecast, the wind before the start […]

WOODEN BOAT FESTIVAL RACES

The lightly attended and light air 26′ & under race was actually quite exciting with Chesuki, a “Dory”, winning, Min Dejlige Pika, a little Caledonia Yawl, winning second, and Voodoo Child, a go fast Didi Mini (sure to win) finishing last and DSQ for getting hooked on last mark. The Schooner Cup, in much better […]

Ted Pike Memorial Race Results

The second running of this tribute to Ted proved even more popular than the first with eleven boats anchored in the kelp off the Southeast corner of Fort Warden in bright sunshine. Only three were competing for the second time. Two others were registered but were probably unable to leave their undesirable moorage on the […]
