Sept 26 Racing

Saturday turned out to be a combined club close-up and racing day. We put away the boats, did lots of cleaning, lifted the docks in the morning, and as the weather turned nice in the afternoon, we set a race course to the South-East, based on the winds of the moment. It was an official keel boat day, with three boats on the line, and dinghy sailors went sailing around the buoys too. The wind was capricious; it pretty much blew from every direction, and everything from a zephyr to a hard blow.

Keel Boat Activities

Five Boats enjoyed a gentle NW breeze to take us down to Picnic Island for a BBQ on Saturday evening.

Sailing back to the club Sunday morning was a beat into a brisk and gusty NW wind, much cooler than the night before.

It seemed like the wind had settled down a bit around noon, so we set up a course for a keel boat race, but when we gathered at the start line the wind was once again coming in hard gusts, dangerous conditions to try racing for our fleet, so the race was called off.

Long Weekend Activities

If the weather cooperates, FYC plans for the weekend include:
– Dinghy racing Saturday and Monday
– Keel boat races on Sunday, and
– BBQ on Picnic Island Saturday night

We will have a planning session on Saturday to allocate crews to the keel boats for the Sunday races. Some of the new members may be interested in sailing on a keel boat.

Dinghies are welcome to race with the keel boats on Sunday, but the dinghies won’t be timed or scored.

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:
