Saturday, August 29 Report:

Dog Days!!! The morning was warm with high cloud cover. The temperature forecast was for 75 to 80 degrees, and (ugh!!) wind non-existent to 2 knots from the SSE. This is inland sailing for northeast Ohio for August. It is good practice and patience building.

Setting the boat rigging up to catch and keep the slightest breath across the water's surface, and then doing nothing to disturb the sails or momentum (once you have it) is critical. The next challenge is being in the right place at the right time and just being lucky also helps.

But...we enjoy the time and try not to take it all to seriously.

Results: Gold Fleet

1. John Richmond 19 points

2. Larry Lamphier 23

3. Tom Schreiber 25

4. Al Daviso 26

Results: Silver Fleet

1. (RD) Dan Jarold

1. B. Schuster 15 Points

2. W. Forbes 22

3. R. Raubenstraw 26

4. W. Otto 27

After one month of the Fall Series, some interesting results:

Gold Fleet Standings (no discards)

1. TIE Larry Lamphier

1. TIE Tom Schreiber 7 Points

1. TIE Mike Wyatt

4. John Richmond 11

5. Al Daviso 13

Silver Fleet Standings (no discards)

1. Bob Schuster 4 points

2. Wayne Forbes 6

3. Ron Raubenstraw 7 ( Spring Series- Ron was 6th place in Spring Series this year- 3rd in Fall- now that's improvement!!)

4. Dan Jarold 10

5. Wally Otto 12

6. Tom Brackett 14

7. Dave Karpuszka 15

8. Nick Lessick 17

8. Larry Ward 17

10. Paul Gersin 19

Of course several of these places would change after a discard (6 dates complete) is applied.

_______________________________________

PAIRS Standings:

5 Discards/ 5 Counted-

1 Team 9 Forbes/ Schuster 16 total points

2 Team 1 Daviso/ Karpuszka 24

Wednesday, August 26 Report:

Is it fall already? This evening was overcast and very cool compared to recent weeks. The temperature was in the mid 60s after rain showers all day.

As we started the evening's races the breeze was light at 0 to 3 knots but around heat 6 a cold front moved in the the wind picked to 3 to 5 knots. Despite being peppered with occasional light rain showers, we sailed through and in the end completed all 12 heats. Things were quickly packed up and we all headed for home to warm up. Mike Wyatt picked up the win tonight, barely ahead of Wayne Forbes. Sailing well, again, was Wally Otto hot on third-place winner Tom Schreiber's transom, just .17 avg. points behind.

Our next sailing date is Saturday 8-29 and expected to have more normal temperatures. The wind?? .......... is never normal.

Results:

1. M. Wyatt 2.42 Avg Score

2. W. Forbes 2.90

3. T. Schreiber 3.33

4. W. Otto 3.50

5. D. Jarold 3.80

6. B. Schuster 4.10

7. N. Lessick 6.00

_______________________________________


Here is a pic showing the difference in backstay tensions; the boat behind has his backstay just right; ahead is too tight. Note the nice curve in the leech of No. 35's jib. Their mainsails are trimmed pretty much identical, but 35 will have more "punch" in the light air.
