2. NEWS!

 Race Report, Tuesday, June 25

Another beautiful night of weather at Rec Park- the warmer temperatures feel great, as does the sunshine. We have been incredibly lucky this year, with weather- YES it has rained a LOT, but it has seemed to clear out for our race days. Lucky us!!

Tonight, the winds were very fickle- we did HAVE wind, but it seemed to be from everywhere. However- there were patterns: - Races were generally S/F- 5- 4- 3 and Finish, or as they were extended- S/F- 5- 4- 3 - 1- 5 then Finish.

- The wind for each race seemed to follow the same pattern- a. fairly predictable from S to 5, shifting to a reach or even a run as you left the Line. Then as you approached #5 you wanted to be out in the lake and sail "down" on starboard to the Mark, because the winds were far lighter near the NW shore. From 5 to 4 was a beat, with a shift to the NW, meaning you sailed a veering course on an arc to the left in the last half of the leg- that means the fast line was to go south/ right on Port leaving Mark #5 then begin to round up on the last half to shoot the Mark. Sailing a straight line from 5 to 4 was not as fast.

Leaving 4- the fast lane was to go to the East shore, and sometimes I could follow that line all the way to #3 because the wind was better near shore. When that leg was a beat (maybe 25% of the time) I got by a few as I rode a lift the whole length while the others sailed out toward the middle. That was primarily early- maybe Heats 1-2-3. Later that leg was a run where it paid (again) to ride the eastern shore to #3.

This basic pattern WAS consistent- even though it appeared to be very confused wind. BUT the run from either 3 to Finish or 3 to 5 then finish- ugh. You ran out of ind after the first 20-40 feet, to the S/F line before it kicked back in on the last half of the leg. There is paid to go right- again riding the better wind in the eastern 1/3 of the pond.

Rec Park IS tough- but it will teach you about seeing and reacting to wind shifts appropriately.

Race Report- Saturday Series, June 22

GREAT day!! One of those “I can’t understand why everybody doesn’t do this!!” days. The weather was beautiful, sunny, 74 degrees, wind from the NNE, and relatively steady at 4 maybe 6 MPH. After a great Sailing School Session by Bob Green (“Reaches and runs, and rounding marks”), he (Bob was also the RD) set courses at either S/F- 5/S, 4/S, and either 3S- F; or 2S- F or 1P- 2P- F.

In Gold, Bob Valentine came on strong at the end of the day, winning Heats 7-9-10, 11 and 12 to win Gold Fleet by 5 points over Mike Wyatt. In Third, was Tom Schreiber.

In Silver, Tom Bluhm won the day, easily, 11 points ahead of new sailor Steve Winfield. In Third was Dan Jarold- who would have placed 2nd, except for a strong finish by Steve in Heats 9-10-11, where Steve placed second, ahead of Dan in Third. VERY good racing in both Fleets!!

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!!
