Wed. June 13, 2018 – Races 9 & 10 (Spring Series)

     First race course Y4 in a spotty SW 5 kts. Second race also Y4 with the SW breeze increasing to 7-8 kts. Surcease and Trinity made big returns, finishing 1-2, 2-1.

     See Race Results for finishes. RC of Allegria crew led by Robin Ricca did a good job in light conditions.

Wed. June 6, 2018 – Races 7 & 8 (Spring Series)

     My apologies to the sailors on for sending you to a non-existant R mark. My intention was to send the fleet around the orange Y mark due west of W , and dead upwind from the committee boats position. Problem is , after 25 years of racing around the "R" mark in almost that exact location, I didn't think to check the identity of that mark, which is the one I found , fiberglassed,primed and painted last year.

     I thought maybe the course length was a little long, but the first boat rounded the Y mark @ 7:14 which is less than 10 minutes from starting time. We would have had two good 4 leg races had I sent you to the Y mark in the first place. Sorry kids. –Willie, RC Trouble

          By the way – Panic attack won first race with Force G4 second. In the second race Panic Attack won again! With Seven Seas second.

Wed. May 30, 2018 – Races 5 & 6 (Spring Series)

     Wind 12 knots from the southwest. Race 1 course a W4. Race 2 a longer W6. Jeepers had the best night with a 2nd then a 1st. Allegria won the first race.

Wed. May 23, 2018 – Races 3 & 4 (Spring Series)

     At the start of Race 1 winds were about 5 knots from the northwest and the course was a short 2 leg course.  Race 2 featured stronger winds with the wind peaking in the low teens.  Seven Seas took the night with 2 wire to wire first place finishes.  Force G4 had a strong start to Race 2 and finished the night with a 3rd and 2nd place finish.  RC – Surcease

Wed. May 16, 2018 – Races 1 & 2 (Spring Series Begins)

     Nasty weather but at least there was wind.  Wind was generally from the northeast and oscillating around City Island.  It rained, we had fog, but we had two races - I2 and I4. Finish between Allegria and Force G4 in the second race was less then 1sec. See Race Results for finishes.

     Couldn’t get the committee boat motor started to return to the Club so we just sailed in. RC boat complements of Roger Karlbach of HYC.  Nothing nicer then a power capstan to raise the anchor and a power with to raise halyards and trim sails.  I could easily get used to that.  Thanks Roger.    - Jeepers RC
