Sept. 19 Keel Boat races

Lovely warm and sunny day, great turnout, everything good except…. a shortage of decent wind. We ran two races in little zephyrs of wind, sometimes just enough to keep moving, sometimes not quite enough…

Sat. Sept. 12 Racing

After a cool morning, the sun warmed things up and a gentle breeze appeared to be blowing from the West when we set the course, but winds are never so simple on Falcon… A north wind came in gusts to mix it up with the west gusts, and unfortunately the course was set a little close to the north shore, so the favoured side of the course had dead spots. We ran five short races, each one a unique combination of gusts and quiet moments…

Saturday Sept 5 Racing

Variable winds, mostly from the west and a lovely fall temperature set the stage for races where picking the right side of the course made the difference. Fearing this might be one of the last days suitable for dinghy sailing, we had 5 races:

These results are slightly different than those sent around in Sharlene’s email; on review with a proper computer screen, one time was corrected to match the race committee notes, and the 29er Portsmith handicap was applied.

Here’s Commodore Sharlene’s summation of the results:

While Dave Baker finished first, he recognizes that as a non club member he is not eligible to win the cup. So, Charles and Maureen are the winners!  Followed by Matt, then Roger. Craig‘s OCS start cost him his chance to defend his title from last year.

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!
