Schooner Cup 2019 Results

After a short delay to accommodate a wind shift, the 15 boats got off to a very good start. Then the wind slacked and became quite fluky, and the struggle was on to finish. Two marks were removed to shorten the course as much as possible. Sir Isaac managed to stay where there was some breeze and had a comfortable win.

Finish order for Festival Schooners:

1

Sir Isaac

2

Martha

3

Wind Gypsy

4

Adventuress

5

Nevermore

2012 Wooden Boat Festival Schooner Race

Thanks to Wendy Feltham for some great shots from the schooner race, plus one of some folks having a heck of a good time..

Pretty impressive how big PACIFIC GRACE is. She makes our local suspects look almost petite. Fun weekend.

2012 Wooden Boat Festival Sail By

A front from the south came through on the Sunday Sail By and gave a good rollicking ride. It was a fun day to sail and no one showed more pleasure in it than the big boats who are made for days like this. But it was not just big boats; all kinds of boats came out to parade around the Bay. What a treat to have the tug ELMORE chug by.  As a friend said, “That’s how boats are supposed to sound.”

Skipper’s Meeting Saturday at NWMC, Shipwright’s Regatta Racing Saturday or Sunday

You may have noticed it was a little windy lately and one forecast showed gusts to 50 for Saturday. That’s good weather for fresh Sunrise Coffee, pastries and a skipper’s meeting Saturday at 9 am at the Northwest Maritime Center. The Shipwright’s Regatta race date isn’t as certain.

Myron and Ace have said that, “The forecast is pretty dismal for tomorrow, but everything has been checked out to be able to postpone racing until Sunday where the weather looks a little frosty but the wind is forecast to lighten up.”

“The plan is to have the skipper’s meeting as planned at 9 AM, Saturday at the Northwest Maritime Center.  If the weather looks like it is improving we will go ahead with the race on Saturday. If not we will try again Sunday”.

So come to the NWMC at 9 am on Saturday morning for coffee, pastries and the schedule.

Friday, Feb. 24th, 9 PM Forecast
