10/16/18: Tuesday Evening Oct 16 Report:

A beautiful night w/ good air. It got very cool as the sun went down, and 11 sailors were glad to complete 10 Heats and head for their vehicles and warmth. Winds were 4- 7 from the SW, with small shifts. Courses were generally S- 2- 3- Gate at "X" (near the NE end of the pond) then Finish.

In Gold Fleet, Mike Wyatt got some good starts, and opportunities to tack over to the favored port tack right after the gun. That placed #39 in clear air, and positioned to point high and go fast to the first Mark. BUT, when those opportunities did not present themselves- like after a late Start, or after getting pinned behind a wall of boats starting on Starboard- not so good. In second was Bob Valentine followed by Tom Melsheimer just 4 points behind after the discard.

GOLD Fleet

Place...Points...Discard...Net...Skipper

1........23......6.........17....M. Wyatt

2........32......5.........27....B. Valentine

3........39......8.........31....T. Melsheimer

4........40......7.........33....R. Lawler

5........44......8.........36....B. Green

6........54......8.........46....W. Forbes...Most 2s

7........53......7.........46....T. Schreiber

In Silver Fleet, The battle between the first three was fierce- just 1 racing point separated First from Second, and 3 points got you Third. But after Discarding each sailor's worst Heat- it was just a 3-point spread over all of them. Tom Bluhm sailed to the win (and moved into First in the season standings as a result). In second was Larry Lamphier who had a strong outing with 3 wins, backed up by 4 seconds in the 10-Heat Race. Brad Ferrell finished in Third. Notably, new sailor Bob Kalman sailed almost all heats, and was getting decent Starts toward the end of the 10-Heat event. In Heat 10- Bob was moving up on the boats ahead on the final run to the Gate.

SILVER Fleet

Place...Points...Discard...Net...Skipper

WET! Saturday, Oct. 13 Report

It was predicted to rain, but with a window of cloudy but dry weather from about 10 AM- 1 PM. WRONGO!! It rained- not in buckets, but light rain the whole time from 9 AM- to the end of racing at 1:00 PM. RD Lamphier called off the festivities after 6 Heats/ 1 Discarded, and the cold, wet sailors headed for the warmth of their cars. Ugh. Winds were pretty good from the SW, and fairly steady at 4- 7 MPH.

The day started out with Dave Steger holding a "Strategy and Tactics on the Last Beat" class. The class was as expected terrific, and much appreciated. The "Sailing Schools" this year have been well-received, and will be continued in some form next season.

On the the competition: In Gold Fleet, 9 competitors raced to close finishes with First through Fifth spanning just 7 points. In other words, for the Fifth Place boat to have won- he needed just 1.3 higher average finish placing over the 5 counted (after Discard) Heats. That's close!!

Mike Wyatt started out awful, but finally began to make fewer mistakes (hitting marks, starting late etc.) and placed in the top three for Heats 4-5-6. In Second, Dave Steger sort of did the opposite- Placing in the top three for Heats 1,2, and 3- but getting stuck in traffic for Heats 4, 5 and 6, to finish 3 points off First. In Third, just another 2 points down, was Bob Valentine.

GOLD FLEET

Place...Points...Discards....Net......Skipper

1.......17......7......10.......Mike Wyatt

2.......20......7......13.......Dave Steger

3.......22......7......15.......Bob Valentine

4.......22......6......16.......Doug Rieger

5.......23......6......17.......Bob Green

6.......30......7......23.......Dave Karpuszka

7.......34......7......27.......Tom Schreiber

BUT- the REALLY tight competition was in Silver Fleet. Tom Bluhm, and Brad Ferrell came into the day knowing they were running 1-3 in the Series, with Nick Lessick between them. But today's results meant that Nick was to slide tho third, with Tom moving up to 2nd, behind Brad. After counting today's five Heats, Brad and Tom had a real, unbreakable TIE for First- each with 10 racing points, 3 Discarded points, and a total of 7 Net. They had the same number of 1sts, 2nds, 3rds- a TIE!!! So- each gets a "1" for today.

SILVER FLEET

Place..Points..Discards....Net......Skipper

RD..................................Larry Lamphier

1......10.......3..........7........Tom Bluhm TIE

1......10.......3..........7........Brad Ferrell TIE

3......19.......3.........16........Nick Lessick

As we go to the last day of the 2018 Saturday Series, scheduled for October 27:

Silver Fleet Fall Series Standings (top 3):

Place...Fall Net.....Skipper

1........9...........B. Ferrell

2.......11...........T. Bluhm

3.......12...........N. Lessick

So- To take the Series First Place in Silver, Tom Bluhm has to beat Brad Ferrell by three points on October 27. Nick can retake 2nd by placing First or Second on the 27th.
