PS1 - 5/23/2013

Well, sailing season has officially begun. Frankly, the weather looked questionable for this evening, big thunder storms off to the West and a forecast of 15-25 knots in the fog. On the way out of the harbor, virtually no wind and dark clouds in the West, oh boy. The southerly filled in to a nice 12-15 knots, the fog lifted and there was even a brief bit of sun on the left side of the course. The wind held steady for the evening, the storms stayed west.

We had a guest from Portland's Fleet 43, Subito, skippered by Robert Garofoli, who came early to get some local knowledge under his belt for D1. I am also sad to report that JP on Maņana is leaving us after D1 for Portland. Nine boats answered the gun this evening, with Keith Bridge bring Powderwhore out of the barn, joining the fleet.

Tom with Jim McCarty's aid, debut course D with a leeward gate. The committee struggled to set a square line this evening with Chumly dragging back on her anchor multiple time

PS2 - 5/31/13

Who threw the switch, summer has officially arrived. 85 F with a light shifty westerly, flat seas. The kind of evening race that seemed like a distant dream as I was feeding my fireplace last weekend.

Tom went with course D with again a pin favored start but an inexplicable stack up at the boat. 13 boats came out to play, good to see many of you getting your boats together. Epic Flight and Brew Ha Ha launched at UNH but a bit late for the race. Fruit Cakes had a guest skipper, Doug blew out his knee and is in for surgery. A major shift on the last leg of the race heavily advantaged the boas that had stayed further out.

Powderwhore had a complete reversal of fortune from last week taking the bullet. Tom was sail number challenged by who is who with sail numbers 108.

R1 - 6/6/13

Fleet 139

A light east wind shifting 45 degrees toward the south presented some challenges getting the course set up this evening. Two races were had both D courses shortened to once around. 9 boats participated.

Sugaree grabbed the bullet in the first & Fruit Cakes in the second.

Powderwhore has committed to provide our first social next week. Bad Dog will do July 4th. I expect to hear from the balance of the fleet for the remainder of the season.

R3 - 6/13/13


Watching the radar this afternoon I thought it was going to rain hard with little or no wind shifting over to the east. Not so, on sailing out of the harbor on an ebbing tide the wind was S- SW, 10 -12 knots. The rain held off until after the race and the promised shift left never happened. The wind did lighten during the course of the race but certainly was enough to get a decent race in.

10 boats answered the gun with Corona making their debut. Tom set course D with a pretty square line with the strong current, generally with the wind; there was no danger of being early. Brew HA HA had it figured out for the first leg being first around. Groves choose the starboard gate and the left side of the course on the way up the 2nd time. It didn't work out with the current and a right shift. Boats working the right side on the second leg did well. Matrix got the bullet and a photo finish for 2nd 3rd and 4th between Stay Calm, Sugaree and Fruit Cakes.

R4 - 6/20/13

Love that solstice racing, great breeze this evening, SE shifting S about 10 knots that only faded a bit at the end of the evening. The current changed over to a flood just before the start pushing boat off the line.

Tom set Course D for both races, shortened to once around in the 2nd, equivalent to the archived course 1 from previous years. The pin was favored in the first and despite the committee boat move to square the line for the 2nd the pin remained favored. 14 boats showed for the sequence at the start line, Hurricane dropped out after an unfortunate collision with Phat Tail with about 1:30 to go in the sequence of the first race. Fruit Cakes surprised Matrix tacking under them near the pin in the first race, winning the favored end in the first. The left side seemed to work for most boats except for Big Ben who must have hit a few good shifts in the middle.

R5 - 6/20/13

Brew HA HA skippered by CJ Gilman & Epic Flight really mixed it at the starboard gate at the leeward rounding, not really sure what was going on but the destination seemed like China. Big Ben took the bullet in the first and the Matrix in the second.

The Matrix put on a well attend feed at the Yacht club, Thanks, it was very appreciated. Stay Calm is up next week and Bad Dog for the 4th of July. Yes there will be racing on the 4th.
Phat Tail has stepped forward for the 18th of July.

R6 - 6/27/13

Well, the rain held off for about half the race. Winds about 8 knots from the east, with forecast the shift left and an increase in intensity that never really happened during the race. The ebb had begun just before race time.


Corona laid a wreath in memory of Eric Rush at planned postponement at the start of the race. Beyond Fleet 139, many members of the KPYC and others had turned out to remember Eric.

Tom set course D with eleven boats on the line. A curious jam up occurred at the boat; since the line was reasonably square. Classically staying left in an easterly was observed by about 1/2 the fleet. A good portion defied tradition and hunted for favorable lifts on the right side. I think left was the place to be. Rob still nursing sore ribs from D1 found good speed again took the bullet.

Many thanks to Doug and the crew of Stay Calm for a great Mexican feed after the race. Next week that famous Randy Johnson cowdah will be served up

R7 - 7/4/13

Wow what a great summer night, after two weeks of storms and rain, it is nice to be in a summer pattern. Winds SW about 8 knots, partly cloudy, hot and humid.

Ten boats answered the gun. Tom set course D for both races. In the first the pin was favored. After a general recall and an adjustment the line was in much better shape. Epic Flight was called early in the first. McLovin guest skippered by her former owner Daryl Dietz and Fruitcakes with Katie Mallory at helm traded first and third for the two races.

R10 - 7/18/13



It reminds me of the old joke about theory vs. reality; in theory we should have been hit with 60 knot winds and golf ball sized hail, in reality there were a few showers and the storm went off to the south before the race and the next one in line held off until most people were off their boats. I was delighted we were able to get two races in and stay dry. On the course at race time, typical light summer breezes, about 5-7 knots southwest. 11 of 15 showed, with Caleb on vacation, Groves MIA and Bill Stewart lost in the jungles of Costa Rica, his boat though was chomping at it's mooring pendant in front of KPYC. Doug Pinciaro, also on vacation but Stay Calm's crew took the boat out, skippered by Egon and with pick up crew Adam from UNH previously seen wandering the dock a KPYC. Doug must have hidden the outboard since Stay Calm was towed out by inflatable.

R11 - 7/18/13

A new boat not know to the fleet, sail number 2424 showed up on the line for the second race. Does anybody have contact info so I can do the Fleet Captain thing? Maybe we will number 16?

Tom set up a shortened course D, up and back, previously know as course one. The pin was slightly favored, with the fleet generally behaving at the start although it seemed to me we all were very close to a general recall in the second. Are we that good or is Tom being generous? With the light air and with the flood ending at race time it wasn't clear which way was preferable, a bit more wind on the left may be. Nice racing throughout the fleet with places changing on all legs of all races. The wind faded in the last leg of the last race as the approaching storm sucked up the energy. Many places changed hands, Big Ben converting a sixth around to a fourth. Matrix and Powderwhore traded bullets and 2nd.

SS1 - 7/25/13

A new boat not know to the fleet, sail number 2424 showed up on the line for the second race. Does anybody have contact info so I can do the Fleet Captain thing? Maybe we will number 16?

Tom set up a shortened course D, up and back, previously know as course one. The pin was slightly favored, with the fleet generally behaving at the start although it seemed to me we all were very close to a general recall in the second. Are we that good or is Tom being generous? With the light air and with the flood ending at race time it wasn't clear which way was preferable, a bit more wind on the left may be. Nice racing throughout the fleet with places changing on all legs of all races. The wind faded in the last leg of the last race as the approaching storm sucked up the energy. Many places changed hands, Big Ben converting a sixth around to a fourth. Matrix and Powderwhore traded bullets and 2nd.

SS2 - 8/1

Breeze was up this evening, it has been since the districts that we had so much breeze, SE-S around 14 knots higher in the gusts with big lumps left over from the day 20 knot plus winds. Tide was flooding during the race. Some of the lighter crew went with jibs, most full crews weight stayed with the genoa.

Tom set a course D with the pin favored in both races less so in the second. The starts were clean in both races with the exception of Powerwhore being called early in the second. 12 boats participated, Bill Steward made it out of the jungles of Costa Rica and the off Bosuns hill, rounded up a crew and made it to the race. Welcome back Bill.

Call the fire engines, Big Ben has been so hot lately he might be on fire; easily capturing bullets in both races, Sugaree, flying only a jib traded 2nd & 3rd with McLovin.

In the protest from last weeks race between McLovin and Matrix the committee found no foul had been committed after a lengthy hearing. My thanks to the member of the protest committee, Jon Taft, Bob Sullivan and Mike Thiel for hearing this protest. I appreciate your time and thoughtful deliberation in a difficult case. The protest caused much discussion in the fleet about tacking in the zone and the applicability of rule 13 tacking and rule 18.3, tacking in the zone as well as the exoneration rules that apply. I found that many people I spoke with misinterpret 18.3 and think 13 doesn't apply so it wouldn't hurt for skipper and tacticians to brush up.

This Saturday is the Whaleback regatta and a chowder party post race at KPYC. I understand Tom Schladenhauffen is looking for RC help, please contact him if you could make yourself available.

SS4 - 8/8

The rain held off to give us a really great evening. SW about 10 knots with an ebbing tide producing some white caps and chop on the right side of the course. The wind was forecast to shift right but that really didn't materialize until after the second race.

Tom set course D with a longish line to accommodate the entire fleet. Nice, not to have to fight it out on a short line. The current was pushing boats off the line, no one was early. The line was pretty square, the boat may have been favored a bit by the wind and the pin probably favored by the current. Winning boats started down by the pin. Course D, twice around held for first race with and a once around for the second. A clean race no protests filed.

Matrix captured both bullets putting and end to Big Ben's winning streak who finished 2nd in both. Sugaree and McLovin traded third and fourth.

The racing starts 18:00 next week, August 15th with the start shifting to 17:30 on August 22nd per

SS6 - 8/15

What a great summer night, fading 8 knot westerly with completely flat seas, unlimited visibility, slack current. All put together you will be thinking of tonight when you are warming up by the fire after shoveling snow this coming winter. 13 of 16 answered the gun, with Egon guest skippering Stay Calm.

Tom set up a course D, twice around with gates. The wind shifted to the North after the windward mark was set making the starboard leg much longer. Tom reset the RC to adjust the line for the shift although I think the boat was still favored slightly. Three boats were called early, Phat Tail, Matrix and Big Ben. Big Ben dug himself out of the hole capturing the bullet.

No host, no Social this evening, Vox has stepped forward for next week.

Only three races left in the season, with start time shifting to 5:30 PM.

Best Regards,

Andy

SS7 - 8/22

What a great night of late season racing; Sw 10-15 that only really shifted and started fade until after the race. It was warm and the thunderstorm in Durham never made it to the race course. The current was ripping out with the near full moon, the ebb was as big as it gets.

Tom set up course D twice around with gates and a downwind finish. The line was long enough to accommodate 15 boats, reasonably square may be with the boat sightly favored. A clean start , no one was early. The right side with the current flowing out seemed the obvious way to go but on the first leg didn't seem to produce that big an advantage. Boats ending up in the middle did ok. Not so on the second leg, McLoving and Powderwhore choose the left and didn't make out so good. There was great racing throughout the fleet with much close boat on boat tactics on display up and down the fleet.
Sugaree stuck way right on the second leg and captured the bullet.

SS8 - 9/5/13

Tom finally managed to set up a shortened course D formally known as course 1 after setting two windward marks almost 50 degrees different from each other. The line was fairly square with the current pushing boats away from the line, no chance of anyone being early. Curiously there existed a big hole at the center of the line a few boats got stuck in. Choosing a side was a krap shoot, with quite a few 20 degree shifts happening. Matrix found the lifts on the left side and captured the bullet.

Many thanks to crew of Fruitcakes, they put on a great steak and Dark & Stormy feed. Well, that's a wrap for the season. Five boats from the fleet are signed up to do Downeast regatta in Portland this weekend, die hards. Also the KPYC singlehanded race is this Saturday, no need to gather a crew for that one. The first haul out at UNH is tomorrow, I will try to get another date from Noel and publish it,
