April 25 results can be found here!

It's Opening Day!

Day one of the 2015 WRMYC campaign began today at Painesville Park. The day started off slow, not too cold (compared to what we've seen the last few months!), but with a biting piercing chill in the air. The wind threatened to leave us in a drifter, with barely a ripple on the pond, but as the day progressed it picked up steadily, blowing up to 8-10, and mainly out of the NNE. This medium air coming from a direction that ran right along the pond made for some good sailing. The shifts were significantly more predictable than what normally occurs, which led to some good races! Thanks to Tom Schreiber for RD'ing today. We had 10 scoring boats on the water today, but with only 2 boats from the Gold fleet, large herds of angry boats were frequently seen at the start line, leading to more than one general recall. And a big welcome to Ron and Larry!


It's official, the 2015 sailing/racing season has started!

April 11, 2015 saw the marks placed at the Painesville Kiwanis Recreation Park pond.

As sailors arrived for sea trials, it was good to see each other and do some catching up. When boats began to appear they were weighed and measured with some surprises discovered.

The weather was chilly and the breeze was from all directions (typical for this location). The water eventually saw 8 boats sailing around. What a sight after a long winter. When it was discovered that the start timer was present, a starting line was established and a course declared.

At the gunshot, they were off and rusty fingers were discovered by all. No major incidents occurred but at times some "rubbing" was going on.

We all left smiling, planning the "adjustments" needed to be made and looking forward to the first races to take place April 25.

.


Rusty fingers mean a sloppy start!

11/14/2014: 2015 Pairs Series announced

For 2015, the Board has decided to add a Pairs Series, concurrent with the Saturday Series. This means: sailors will be paired up

- usually (but not always) a Gold Fleet sailor with a member of the Silver Fleet.

- Scores for racing on Saturday Race Days will be added for the two in a Pair;

The Pairs scores will count toward a year-long Series, with separate trophies.

The objective is to put sailors together, and provide "two heads are better than one" situations, improving skills.
