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.
