August 21, 2016 – Preliminary Results

Skipper’s Meeting was held at 12:00 PM in the Club House. Weather consisted of sunny to partly cloudy skies, warm temperatures 8 skippers with crew and boats ready to race.  Wind was out of the E at 6 knots with gust to 12 knots. Course was triangular with a windward start / Finish line (1, 2, 3).

 

Race 3 The wind veered more westerly and was a steady 6 knots with puffs. The start for Race went off as scheduled with all boats cleared at the start.  Half way to the windward mark it was noted by Calypso that the windward mark was no longer present.  It is believed that a powerboat either ran over the marker and it sank, or the marker was removed. Race Committee abandoned Race 3 and reset the course.

 

Race 3 Was restarted on longer triangular course consisting of permanent marker 16; permanent markers 14 & 15; and a dropped marker E (east).  The Race started at 14:09:00. All boats cleared the start; Legacy tried a port tack start causing a great deal of confusion and scattering at the start. Port tack starts can be very tricky and sometimes a bit dangerous, as I am sure Legacy may have learned.  No protests were filed.

 

There was good breeze for the race with some nice puffs. Seven of the 8 boats finished the race with one boat dropping out.

 

     PHRF A:     James Masson: Ericson 35 (“Calypso”)

     PHRF B:     Doug Fuller: Capri 22 (“Seaduceme”)                

     PHRF C:     Dave Roberts Catalina 310 (“Legacy”)

 

Race 4 We will try and pick up Race 4 as the season progresses.

 

Race Committee Duties: RC handled by Mark Rother, David Swisher and a guest (Caroline) on the vessel Redemption Song.  Statistics compiled by Susan Starr.  Postings to the website by Marge Lofts. Thank you all.  All had a good time!


July 17, 2016

Skipper’s Meeting was held at 12:00 PM in the Club House. Weather consisted of sunny to partly cloudy skies, warm temperatures with 10 skippers with crew and boats ready to race.  Wind was out of the E at 6 knots with gust to 12 knots. Course was triangular with a windward leeward finish (1, 2, 3, 1, and 3).

 

The only thing hotter than the temperature was the competition for the first day of the Summer/Fall PHRF Series.  With fluky winds, Steve Honour, “Super Race Committee”, set a pin-end favored line.  To add excitement, there was an anchored powerboat about 100 feet from the starboard approach. I don’t think that boat will try that again, as they found themselves in the middle of a bunch of sailboats jockeying for position at the starts. When someone complained, Steve rightly responded, “deal with it”. If you cannot avoid an anchored boat, how are you going to avoid another racer?

 

James Masson, with his usual astuteness, port tacked Calypso over the whole fleet. James and his crew Dave, went on to win from wire to wire. I have seen this move before!  We had a good turnout for the July 17 event. Team Vive battled Seaduceme to split the two races. The finish of Race 2 had Seduceme, Seahawk and Vive finishing within 5 seconds of each other. Talk about close finishes!

 

Team Godzilla got back to form with two 2nd place finishes.  Commodore Rich Walters picked up last minute crew, Susan Starr, to sail with. Davie Limey Roberts was in the mix, up front, all day. New members Margie and Susan sailed a Capri 16.5.  Back at the Club, racers had adult beverages and re-sailed the races. Kind of funny that the “re-sailed” races on the hard, are faster, each time they are discussed!

 

BCYC stands for “Better Competition Yacht Club”. Are we going fast yet? See you next time, August 21, 2016. Color commentary for this article provided by Mark Rother.  Thank you Mark.

Race 3 & Race 4 – February 21, 2016

Skipper’s Meeting was held at 11:00 AM in the Club House. Weather consisted of sunny to partly cloudy skies, warm temperatures and 12 skippers with crew and boats ready to race.  Wind was out of the NNW at 2-3 knots and veering to the WSW.


Race 3 consisted of a windward leeward course with 12 boats starting at 12:45 PM and receiving the all clear. This race was a real test of will, skill and luck as what little wind on the course was variable to non-existent.  At times the incoming tide was moving some of the boats back toward the start line. Line honors went to:


     PHRF A:     Peter Kvasnicka S-2 7.9 (“Bounder”)

     PHRF B:     Garth Reynolds Beneteau First 235 (“Vive”)

     PHRF C:     Dave Roberts Catalina 310 (“Legacy”)


The overall Delta between the first and last boat to cross the finish line was 40 minutes. The final three boats racing, rode the afternoon sea breeze across the finish line.


Race 4 with the 40 minute delta between 1st and last boats finishing race 3, many of the other boats retired due to lack of wind.  However, the breeze was arriving with 7 knots of WNW wind. Race Committee had indicated that there would not be another race, but then reversed their decision and started notifying the boats. Some boats had turned off their radios and were headed in. Six (6) boats started the windward leeward course at 3:00 PM with all boats receiving the all clear signal. Line honors went to:


     PHRF A:     Peter Kvasnicka’s S-2 7.9 (“Bounder”)

     PHRF B:     Richard Walters Morgan 30 (“Seahawk”)

     PHRF C:     Dave Roberts Catalina 310 (“Legacy”)

A "Thank You!" goes out to the Race Committee boat and crew (Frank Downward, Nancy Hatch and Samantha Ring and on shore statistician Susan Starr). A good time was had by all!

Methinks the Lady doth protest too much....


A phrase you'll not hear from Queen Gertrude around BCYC...


Sailboat racing is a gentleperson's sport and in the Corinthian spirit we too often do not protest when we know we really should. Yet this does NOT help our competitors, especially when they are new to sailboat racing.


In order to have and hear protests there needs to be a protest committee made up of individuals who do not have a vested interest in the outcome of the protest. To that end, I want to invite any members who may feel they have an opinion and a desire to share it to volunteer to be BCYC's protest committee. You do not have to know the racing rules as well as you know your bible, as the rules are presented along with the protest, and the appeals process will help you learn if you make a mistake in your decision on a particular protest. You WILL know the racing rules as you hear more and more protests and so will the competitors which is the goal.


Racers who know there is no consequence, will press their advantage on the race  course and can lead to inappropriate sailing behavior and may result in unnecessary collisions.

If you have a "thin skin" and handle criticism poorly, do not apply. This is NOT a position for frail egos. To learn more before allowing your right hand to rise toward the ceiling, click on the link below before contacting the BCYC Race Chairman.
