Commodore’s Cup 2019

We had worried that the weather would require postponing the Commodore’s Cup regatta due to rain, but on Saturday morning, the sun was shining and there was no lack of wind, instead there was some concern about the strength of the wind as we rigged our boats. 11 boats completed the first race in a brisk wind, enjoying bracing reaches and gybes. By the last race, four boats finished, hanging on through some violent gusts.
A big thank you to Brian K and Deb W for running the races on the water.

August 17 & 18

Pretty quiet at the club August 17; many sailors away at the Lasers Masters regatta, and the wind not putting up much of a show, but sufficient breezes from the South – South west to set up a sausage course and run five races:

On Sunday a strong and gusty wind blowing from the West, and four boats headed out to the start line, but some parts broke, and in the end a few boats just zoomed around in the mighty wind.

August 5 Racing

No lack of wind on the holiday Monday. Strong gusts from the W-NW, and a few other directions. Set up a triangle course. Those who went out had to hang on and move fast, but we hit top boat speeds over 20 kph on the reaches.

August Long Keelboat Race

Nice breezes mostly from the West, 5 keelboats and one Wayfarer out. We set a triangle-sausage course, and ran three races. Since the Wayfarer finished in roughly half the time it took the keelboats (including the race committee), it was not scored for the races.

The results for the day were scored on the basis of the two best races for each skipper, so Dave Hudson was first with two points, followed by Marcello, with three.

The Races were followed by a lovely BBQ on the upper deck.

Awesome day.

August 3 Races

10 skippers were keen to race on this hot August Saturday, but we had to wait for the wind, which finally showed up at 2. It was mostly light, and a very unpredictable, but that’s Falcon Lake. We set a sausage course, and headed out to race. Of course, by the time we got out there, the wind veered more and more off the course, so Sharlene moved the windward mark once from her Laser, and we worked with what the wind gave us.

Summer of Sailing Regatta

25 Boats on the water for the weekend regatta, which included 17 Lasers, 4 Optimists and 4 dual-handed boats.

The weather was extremely variable, with the wind blowing, or not blowing, various strengths from various directions. It meant lots of adjusting by the race committee, and lots of waiting for the sailors, but sailors had a good time; and those who stayed out for all the races sailed between four and seven races each.

A spotty easterly to south-easterly to south wind that built in fits and starts. Finding the wind was key to success.
