Racing Recap:

Saturday morning started cold and foggy. I even had my wipers running on the way up the peninsula. The wind was already 10-15 kts at 10 am so we knew we were in for a great workout! The racing started on the traditional Clipper Cove PCC's course of two laps and a reaching finish with the wind about 15-20. Good heavy-air boat handling was required to stick with the top pack. The breeze stayed strong all day and the sun even came out. After 7 races everyone was ready to eat! Heather and Rebecca cooked up some great food and there was so much Red Stripe Beer that we couldn't drink it all! There were even opportunities to fly kites in the parking lot after eating. Sunday was more mild for sure. The racing started in about 8 – 10 kts of breeze with sunny and much warmer conditions. The fleet sailed seven more races in building breeze and fun was had by all. From the mark set boat I was amazed to see how tight the whole fleet was even at the second weather mark. There are no ba! d sailors in this fleet that's for sure! Many familiar faces at the top of the leader board and some up & comers posting some top fives as well! Heather and I really enjoyed organizing this event. The more we volunteer the more we learn how to do stuff correctly and we appreciate how much effort and energy is required. The little time spent was very rewarding seeing all the smiles on the happy sailors. Also, a day spent on a powerboat watching this fleet is a very good learning experience and highly recommended. We were glad to offer Shane a day off on Sunday and give some time back to the fleet as well. If you haven't volunteered recently, it's time to step up and offer a hand!

Now we are looking forward to the next event, The Vanguard 15 PCC's at the Semana Nautica Regatta at the Santa Barbara YC. Mark your calendars for June 26-27th! This was a great event last year and we hope everyone can make the trip. Start planning now for trailer piggy-back rides and maintenance, it's a bit of a drive.

Sail Fast,

Steve & Heather
