 6/19/18- June 19 Tuesday Race

Tough night to sail!! It was LIGHT Air, from a high of (maybe) 3-4, to zero, and with wildly varying wind direction for this Tuesdays racing. 11 racers came out- the largest turnout for a Tuesday (or a Saturday for that matter) so far this season. Competition was tight, because ANYONE could catch a breeze and make up many places, at any time.

BUT- it was not "ALL LUCK"- to win, you had to start well, get to clear air, and stay in clear air. Good mark roundings were also critical- because a sloppy rounding resulting in coming to a a dead stop could take you out of the competition.

Courses were basically two- S/F- 4- 5- S/F; and S/F to 2- 3- S/F. And, again we raced two Fleets- Gold and Silver with separate Starts, a minute apart.


Rec Park Pond Marks and Courses

In GOLD FLEET, Tom Melsheimer had his first win, beating out Mike Wyatt be ONE point. Tom sailed well, and seemed always to be up there near the front, winning 5 of the 12 Heats. Great job Tom!! And, in only his first FULL season (he joined WRMYC part way through 2017's season.) In Third on the night was Bob Green 10 points down. Third/ Fourth was also decided by one point - Bob Green edged out Bob Valentine for the spot.

In Silver Fleet it was great to see the new guys coming out. The latest additions to the club placed 2nd- 4th on the night, and these have only been racing for 2-3 weeks!! Great start!!!

The winner was Rick Lawler, with a convincing 10 point margin. In second- Tom Bluhm followed by another new sailor- Ron Sieloff in Third. It looks like all these guys are racing well, and having fun doing it.

6/12/18- June 12 Tuesday Race

Great night!!! It started out cloudy, but by about 6 PM the sun was out, with puffy clouds, and nice wind from the South-Southeast at about 8 MPH. Courses were set to go from S/F-1(or 2)- 2- 5- F, with separate starts for Gold (4 boats) and Silver (5 boats).

The great story tonight was the battle in Silver Fleet- Nick Lessick won Silver with a net 21 points- two ahead of new sailor Tom Bluhm, sailing only his second race. Bluhm had 24 points after Discards, BUT, also, Brad Ferrell and Rick Lawler had 24 points for a three-way points tie for second place on the night. The tiebreakers (most 1's in favor of Bluhm, and most 2s in favor of Ferrell) made the difference. CLOSE!!

There was great racing also in the Gold Fleet, where Bob Green bested Mike Wyatt by a single point for the win. In Third was Tom Melsheimer.
