Last weekend was a wonderful time to be out on the water. Here are the results of last Saturday’s race. Watch the race on raceQs – HERE.
SDSPS Sail Fleet/South Bay Family Sailing Series/Ventura Sailing Club- May 18, 2019, Saturday (8.04nm)
Saturday May 18, 2019 was a fine day for sailing. There were 9, or 10 boats circling the starting line for the 12:00 start. I am not sure if I have the times, or names for all the boats.
As usual we had a pursuit race with starting horns at 12:00, 12:03 and 12:06. With the first horn there were only light winds. 15 minutes into the race the wind was blowing a constant 14 knots. All the boats were flying along with NO reefs in any sails with everyone doing hull speed.
Boats at the starting line are as follows: Astra, Consigliare, Marilee, Bon Temps, Atsa II, Bibbity Bobbity Boat, Mal Pais, Pie in the Sky and Miller Time III.
Welcome back out on the race course Mal Pais. We have all missed you over the past few months. Pie in the Sky was looking really good at the starting but did not finish the race.
The race committee understands there is some contention at various marks along the race course. This is the “Family Sailing Series”. It is intended for beginning sailors. If you are yelling and shouting at other boats not following the sailing rules you belong in another race. Try the Rum Series, or the Beer Can Series in North San Diego Bay. WE ARE HERE TO HAVE FUN. Remember our 3 RULES: 1. Keep the water out of the boat. 2. Keep the people inside the boat. 3. Do not touch any other boat.
Results of the race are as follows with corrected finish time.
