Monday August 3rd Races

Gentle, but still NNE and shifty winds. The sailing team was at the club, so Linus joined the racing. Sharlene was most consistent, while Feavers got two bullets and a DFL!

Al Sweeps KB July Races

We had gentle, shifting breezes mostly from the West on Saturday, July 25 for the keel boat and dinghy races. Everyone started at the same time, thanks to David L for timing the dinghies.

The following Sunday, there was too much wind, so sailors practiced screaming reaches, but there were no races.

Unfortunately, on Sunday the weather did not clear up in time for the races.

Wendy and Roger get firsts

Sunday July 12, a mix of winds from the south made for interesting racing. There wasn’t enough wind to set a reach mark, but occasionally we got a good puff, and then again occasionally there wasn’t much wind at all. And of course, the wind shifted unpredictably from side to side. So, results varied among the four races:

A breezy moment between races

July 11 races

Typical Falcon Lake summer weather; nice breeze, allegedly coming from the North, but with lots of shifts to make sailing interesting.

First Keel Boat Race of 2020

Saturday June 27th we had a lively wind gusting up to 15 knots from the South West (mostly!). Five keel boats were on the start line for the first race, plus a few dinghies out to practice. Unfortunately, Dave’s tiller broke when he was doing well in the first race, so he had to retire without finishing. The rest of the fleet had a good time rounding the marks as quickly as possible:

June 27 & 28 Weekend

It looks like the weather this weekend will be great for starting club racing; Warm with winds from the West on Saturday, and from the South on Sunday.

We will hold our first keelboat races of the year on Saturday, starting at one pm, hopefully running 3 short races. We  can’t follow the “participation” approach of previous years, where we invited lots of people onto the boats. This time the people on each boat must be  from the same household, or people who are regularly in contact, or a minimum number of people who are willing to be in contact for this event. It looks like we will have five boats on the starting line. Anyone who wants to sail a dinghy in the same race is welcome, but it will just be practice race for them, and they should stay out of the way of the keel boats when they are racing. That means a dinghy can still start at the same time, but it has to avoid getting in the way of the starting keel boats.

On Sunday, it should be a couple of degrees warmer, so a great occasion to race dinghies. We will try to run up to 5 races after 1 pm, as usual.

The following weekends, we will have dinghy races in the afternoons, weather permitting, except on the three days reserved for keel boat racing.
