Wed., May 20 Report:

This evening's sailing was, calm. The breeze was light from the north 0 to 3, a drifter. Light air sailing is, without a doubt, a real challenge.

Seven skippers were on the water honing their light air skills and always searching for the faintest puff to get to the front of the pack. At times it was best to just get in clear air (away from all other boats) and hope for the odd puff or breeze shift.

Using and learning tactics, sailing to the current conditions, and enjoying the time out with friends are what keep us coming back!!!

May 20 Results, Top 5:

1. M. Wyatt.... 2.44 Avg Finish

2. W. Forbes... 2.63

3. T. Schreiber. 3.56

4. N. Lessick....3.63

5. T. Brackett...4.50

AND- after 4 race dates, the Wednesday YTD standings are:

1. W. Forbes.....2.57

2. T. Schreiber..2.63

3. N. Lessick....3.05

4. T. Brackett...3.18

5. M. Wyatt......3.55

6. W. Otto.......3.92

7. B. Schuster...4.20

8. D. Jarold.....5.65

9. J. Richmond...6.40

10. L. Lamphier..6.86

11. T. Lamphier..7.50

The Wednesday Series is scored as a rolling average. Gold Fleet sailors get NO discards; Silver Fleet sailors count their best 14 of the year- so, with 30 race dates scheduled, that should be approximately 1 for 2. We will keep scores that way, discarding 1 for 2, so the results are reflective of the whole year.

Wed., May 13 Report:

Brrrrrrrrrrr! What a difference 4 days can make in spring. The temperature was in the low 50's with the wind from the northwest 2 to 4 with the occasional gust just to keep us all honest. Five skippers (w/ gloves and hats) braved the conditions and sailed the complete set of 12 heats before heading to the cars for some heat to warm up our hands.

All in all, it was another good night on the water. Next time is Wednesday 5-20. Time enough to check the boats over, make any needed adjustments and charge the batteries.

Results:

Place..Name....Total Pts. after disc..Avg.

1.....M. Wyatt......22............... 1.83

2.....T. Schreiber..23............... 1.92

3.....W. Forbes.....25............... 2.50

4.....N. Lessick....34............... 3.40

5.....D. Jarold.....46............... 4.60

Note how CLOSE the avg. points are among 1st- 3rd place!!! It's a little early to talk about Series Standings- suffice it to say that Tom Schreiber leads the series, with Tom Brackett in 2nd place. More next week!!

Sat May 9 Results

Score card Here!

It was a hot one for May. The temperature ended up in the low 80's with occasional clouds drifting by. The racing day saw ?? skippers come to race. The wind, several minutes of drifting conditions followed by "hold on to your sails, boys'. The wind was from all directions which makes sailing this pond always interesting, or frustrating, depending on how you are doing for the day.

Clinic Announced:

A Soling Beginning Tuning Clinic is scheduled for May 23- at Painesville Rec Park- 9:00 AM- FREE.

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.

Team 1: Al Daviso.....Dave Karpuszka

Team 2: Larry Lamphier.....Paul Gersin

Team 3: Thad Lamphier....Larry Ward

Team 4: Dave Querin.... Wally Otto

Team 5: John Richmond....Dan Jarold

Team 6: Tom Schreiber....Tom Brackett

Team 7: Mike Wyatt....Nick Lessick

Team 8: Mike Wyatt....Ron Raubenstraw

Team 9: Wayne Forbes ....Bob Schuster
