Third and Fourth Spring Series Races

May 22th, 2016

After a long delay the wind gods heeded Fantasy's wind dance and provided a pleasant north breeze that lasted just long enough for two races. Snitch was in good form taking first in both races. Find more details and full results in the pennant.

The First (Race) Day of Spring

May 15th, 2016

Gusty West winds, several squalls, sleet, hail and plenty of cold water! The first race day of the spring series was a test of heavy weather seamanship - thankfully all boats in the fleet delivered their cold crew safely ashore. Read more details in the pennant.

Updated Sailing Instructions and PHRF Ratings

May 13th, 2016

After much discussion, new sailing instructions are available! The updated instructions are closer to the typical SIs I've seen at other regattas in the last few years so hopefully they will feel familiar. Note that the scoring has been changed to follow the standard from appendix A of the ISAF RRS. The SI document also includes updated GPS postions and letters for the racing marks.

Our ratings chair has also provided updated PHRF ratings for boats racing. Both of the new documents can be found on the documents page.

Tune up race

May 1st, 2016

Overcast skies and a strong south breeze made for some spirited sailing. The rain held off and the only crew willing to brave the chilly forecast got plenty of practice and a good workout! Read Charles' report with the details in the pennant.
