The Committee Boat left the Boat Haven with a light Northwesterly and set the S/F line between I and T. Once set it was noticed that the wind increased a little and changed direction. The CB raised anchor twice to reset a square line but by start time was about back where it began. The […]
The original hope for the evening was to have enough of our regular wind to run two races to make up for last week’s cancellation. Aeolus laughed!
The Committee Boat left the marina with the normal light Northwesterly breeze but beyond the breakwater the air was very light and confused as to direction. While waiting […]
We had a very good race. SYTF was pretty darn close to spot on with the wind direction. About 7 knots at the start and over 10 at the finish. 10 boats came out for an all Thunderbird event. We had a general recall at the first try so the start time was 18:25.
17 boats participated in one beautiful day of racing and one very wet one. On Saturday, long triangles were used for two twice around races with relatively steady 9 to 11 knot winds, except for a major change in direction during the second lap of the first race. This caused a delay while the course […]
Just results, comments later.
This week we were dealt a gale warning. While the skippers were consulting their auguries the wind at the Boat Haven, which had been increasing all afternoon, was light and unstable. Speed varied between 3 to 10 kts with occasional gusts, the direction varied 20 or more degrees either side of magnetic West. There was […]
During the day the wind was very light and variable, but by mid afternoon it became warm and sunny and the wind began to strengthen and settle on a steady direction. When the Committee Boat arrived on station to set up the course the wind was 8 -10 kts with a few small, short lulls […]
This week we had a dock start. The wind at the dock was very unstable, 6 – 8 kts. with long lulls to 3 kts and sharp gusts to 12+. The wind direction cycled between 250° and 290°M. The onset of rain did not change the wind.
The wind had been checked earlier at the […]
Eight boats came out on a warm and sunny weekend for this popular, two race, overnight party. The races are part of the Distance Series. The Saturday race had the potential for congestion with the PTYC Opening Day parade and the massed finish of the STYC Race to the Straits pursuit race. These proved to […]

Eleven boats came out for a warm, sunny evening sail. The wind was a fairly steady 8 kts. and SITF (3.1nm.) provided a good W/L course. The wind built a little after the start […]
