2. NEWS!

 6/19/19: Race Report, Tuesday Evening Series June 18:

Another beautiful weather night, with light winds, but from a consistent NNE direction. At the beginning (3 PM-4 PM) "Weatherman Dan", Dan Jarold measured winds at 4-8 MPH, but the forecast was for lessening wind strength as the evening went on. This turned out to be exactly right. BUT, we got in all 12 Heats, finishing at about 7:30 as per the schedule.

(SB = Starboard rounding; PR = Port rounding).

Courses were generally S/F - 5/SB, 4/SB, then S/F to get in the first 6 or so Heats. Then, Sailing Director Rick Lawler started to lengthen courses, making the race more than just about getting a good Start, so S/F - 5/SB, 4/SB, 2/SB- S/F, and even adding in a cross to 1/P- 2P before Finish.

GOLD Fleet- VERY close racing!! The top three were within 6 points- or .5 per Heat.

SILVER Fleet- again very close racing. Jack Nissen and Tom Bluhm as usual battled it out for First as Tom won the initial 4 Heats; BUT, Jack came back to win Heats 5,6, and split a First Place "Tuesday Tie" with Dan Jarold in Heat #7. Then, Dan came into the game with 3 ADDITIONAL wins out of the final 5 Heats!! Both Tom Bluhm and Jack Nissen had FIVE wins; but guess what- "Weatherman Dan" had 4 wins on the night - counting the shared First Place in Heat 7. Dramatic improvement for Dan and a terrific battle in Silver!!

6/11/19: Tuesday Night Series, June 11, 2019

Great night- beautiful blue skies, 75 degrees. A little CHALLENGING on the wind front- light from 0 - 6 or so all evening, varying direction. Courses were typically S - 5 or 4- then 3, and Finish; or S- 4-3-F. The 12th Heat was a Z-shaped course that took us all over the pond. Still we finished well before the 7:30 PM cutoff.

In GOLD Fleet- Mike Wyatt got lucky with his sail trim and tune, had good starts that put him in the top 1-2 places by the first Mark, to win 6 Heats. In second- what a BATTLE!! Rick Lawler prevailed over series leader Bob Green on a tiebreaker for 2nd- 3rd.

In SILVER, Tom Bluhm won by 5 points over Ron Sieloff, followed by Dan Jarold.

Notable performances: Bob Kalman had three 2nds and 2 thirds; Dan Jarold had 2 Firsts, including a 12th Heat "horizon job" on the Fleet- where he sailed up into Gold by the third leg, beating the other Silver Fleeters by nearly a full leg!!

Welcome to Steve Winfield a new sailor who is joining us. Steve did well for his first outing- three seconds and a third!!

6/10/19: Saturday Series June 8 2019

CRAZY air today- NNE 6-12 shifty With Gusts to 16. This is NOT the norm at Rec Park, but the sailing was in bright sunshine and warm 80's. At times it's a drifting race then big swirly puff's, making boat handling challenging.

The day started with an excellent Clinic- "Rules at Windward Marks", by Rick Lawler.

Race Director for the day was WRMYC Commodore Larry Lamphier. Racing generally started at marks 4, then to 3 and Finish; or Start 3,1,2 finish.

In Gold Fleet, Bob Valentine, Bob Green. & Rick Lawler battled all day with Rick winning the battle.

In Silver, Brad Ferrell won, while rookie skippers Bob Kalman and Scott Westrum battled for second place. Notably, Bob won his first Heat, ever, and in difficult conditions!!! Series Leader Tom Bluhm was missing which sorely hurt him in standings.

The 2019 Saturday Spring Edition only has 3 events left- this was Race #4, and points are getting tight just before the mid-season awards and picnic.
