Bruce moved into first overall for this series with a strong showing on the final day. Charlie finished 2nd, while Tim held onto 3rd place. George Dean mounted a strong challenge for Tim with a good showing on the final day, ending up 4th. Bob Davison rounded out the top 5. Full results are on the club Bulletin Board; summary results are on the website’s Club Racing tab.
We’ll continue racing into October, weather permitting. Daylight Savings stays with us through the month, giving us a chance to sail in some manner of light. Winds are typically stronger in October, so let’s hope for some good racing as our season nears it end.
Check out the results in the Club Series tab — someone cracked the Top Two for a Series besides Bruce or Charlie for this series: Charlie (1st); Oliver (2nd); and, Bruce (3rd). Congratulations, Oliver! He sailed a very consistent series, with a lot of bullets and seconds. We’re going to see a lot more of Oliver in the top 3 in future series, given the way he’s been sailing recently. George Townsend and JD Langdon rounded out the top 5. Full race-by-race details are posted on the club bulletin board. Also noteworthy: we had 10 sailors who qualified for this series by racing in at least 50% of the races. A great trend.
This was about as tight as it gets, folks. Bruce edged out Charlie for first by 4/100ths of a point! George Townsend, JD Langdon and Tim Stone rounded out the top 5 for this series. Summary results are under the Club Racing tab on this website; full race results are posted on the club bulletin board at the Inn. Some of us will be off to the Region 1 Championship Regatta in NH this weekend, and a few more to the Canadian Nationals next weekend in Nova Scotia. Then, the Region 1 Club Championship in Worcester on Sept. 16th. Wish the sailors luck!
Charlie managed to edge out Bruce for this series. You may recall that Bruce was trying to work with his “Yellow Boat”, and that cost him some points. (The Yellow Boat has since been dry docked). There was a tight series among Oliver, Bob D. and George T. for 3rd through 5th respectively. Eight boats qualified for the Series, having sailed in 50% or more of the races. Let’s look forward to the fair breezes of September!
The summary report for the series is posted on the Club Racing page. The race-by-race detailed report will be posted on the bulletin board on Weds, Aug 1st. A reminder: the “mini-seminars” will continue on Wednesdays at 3:30 before the racing. Tune up your boat and tune up your rules & tactics.
The final results for the July Weds. Series are now posted. The July Mon. Series finishes up on July 30th. Reminder #1: we will continue the Weds. “mini-seminars” from 3:30 to 4:30 for all interested sailors as long as there is on-going interest. Bring your topic-of-interest with you and we’ll attempt to cover it, from Boat Tuning, Rules, Tactics & Strategies to whatever you come up with. We’ll use actual on-the-water demo’s where possible.
Reminder #2: The CanAm Challenge Regatta is coming up Aug. 4th & 5th. Please register by next Monday if you plan to race. Otherwise, stop by the pond between 10 & 3 either day to watch the action.
Today (Wed) was WAY less than ideal, but 6 stalwarts showed up. We raced informally in very trying conditions. Thus, the June Weds. Series is final as of last week’s results, which may be viewed under “Club Racing” (and is posted on the Inn’s bulletin board).
Next week begins the July Series – a fresh start for us all. We will race regular time on Monday (4:30 Start), and will move the Start up to 4:00 on Weds, July 4th. Hope to see you all next week – for a brand new monthly Series.
The Final Results for June’s Monday Series are now posted. Wow! Tight series. Hope to see you on Weds.
10 boats were out tonight for lots of windy and long races – wind from the south. We got in about 10 races.
Wednesday looks good too. Hope you can make it.
Monday the 11th was a great day of racing with plenty of wind and about 10 boats. There were lots of winners: Bruce, Charlie, Oliver, Paul, George and probably others I don’t recall. We’re off to a great start with one race completed for the Monday and Wednesday series’.
Results are now being posted in the lobby outside the bar – across from the men’s room door. By later this week we should have them online here at the web site too.
