Our next race weekend - lets try to get a good turnout!
Aug 23 Recap
We did manage to get a two boat (plus guest) turnout for RC racing, but the Ocean sailors were doing other things...
& Hot Dog BBQ
Jul 26th Recap
The RC fleet saw a good turnout of six skippers, facing good steady winds and not too much kelp, resultiing in close racing by all.
The Ocean fleet could only field one crew, so Latis went out to find the usual light winds at the buoy. Determined to see some wind, she motored about one mile farther out, and crosses the ever-present windline, resulting in a great sail in robust winds and some very raucous waves, drenching the entire crew several times. All smiles.
The usual group of hardcore Club supporters had a pleasant time chomping down dogs and trading stories. There was a sobering note included, as the Club has cleared out a corner of the Clubhouse, to trade storage for a generous rent reduction. We need to grow the Club to reach sustainability!
The closing day of the Spring Season saw six skippers racing RC yachts in light wind, with no a small amount of kelp, always a big influence on the results.
The Ocean racers had three boats on the starting line, with weather conditions vastly better than forecast. Flat seas, steady winds, and warm air combined to create a memorable day.
The Ocean fleet crumbled at the last minute due to a skipper shortage, and there's no news about the R/C racing. Check back for details.
Keep an eye out for disruptions to our usual "every two week" race schedule, due to odd tides.
The weather was less than nice offshore, so the Ocean fleet didn't race. No info yet available about the R/C racing or the Potluck.
Party at the Port
The sailors managed a small turnout for the RC racers and the Ocean Fleet saw variable conditions for their race. After being stalled at the starting line, the boats ended up in 20kts+ surfing at big speed, and generally having a thrilling and wet day.
The Club Oyster booth sold out early, so there were a lot of hungry people at the Port for this annual event. The parking ot was full, and there was lots of activity all weekend.

Burger BBQ Potluck Recap
The weekend got off to a bad start with only one skipper showing up for the R/C racing. A big improvement saw two boats head to the ocean for a joust, with perfect weather - bright sun, warm air, and plenty of wind and waves - to see a photo finish after six miles of racing.
The day ended with a great BBQ.

April 26 Recap
Another great RC race, but another marginal weather day for the ocean. Might have gotten a race in, but there was no crew available for the two boats that might have gone out!
Photos of the RC racing are HERE.
Chicken BBQ & Potluck
The RCs held a spirited race, but the weather was didn't cooperate fwith the Ocean fleet.
Pictures are HERE.
St. Pat's Day
Once again, the Club threw a great party, with everyone getting their fill of delicious Corned Beef, Potatoes, Carrots, Cabbage and desserts. Special to thanks to our host Jim Relaford and the principal cook, Tom Bouley. Many others also contributed with prep and cleanup work.
Pictures will no doubt show up soon.
