Wahooo! Time to go sailing!

Wahooo! Time to go sailing!

Lots to do this weekend.

– Port to Port Race. Registration and sign ups will be at the Skipper’s meeting at the Maritime Center, Saturday morning at 9:30. Race starts at 1:00 on Saturday for the hoped for downwind ride to Port Ludlow. Sunday’s race starts at 9:30 for what is forecast to be a beat back to PT. We have the party barge with pizza’s at Port Ludlow. Satch showed me his chart plotting and navigation skills by folding up a business card to one nautical mile and computing the distance as around 14 miles or so. It’s a beautiful weekend, isn’t it time you got out of the Bay?

– 6 Meter North American Championship. Thanks to past PTSA Commodore Adam for putting together this exciting event. 6 Meters are designed to the same rule as the 12’s that competed for the America’s Cup for so many years. Two classes, modern and historic. The boats are elegant, the racing intense. If you are available to do some volunteer work, it would be appreciated. Contact Adam. In any case, don’t miss the opportunity to walk the dock and check out these boats.

– There’s no Dog Days race listed on the calendar but last Wednesday’s Barcott Series race was a good time in a light wind, stop and go kind of a way. A number of boats danced with the bar and the Pt Hudson shore looking for relief from the ebb. The motor home crowd certainly had front row seats and something to look at on that one. The boat with the most smiles per race may have been The Wizard which had a Dan, Piper, and a boat load of happy kids.

Go sailing this weekend.
