We're Racing Again

Racing Captain: Tedd Meinersmann

Attached is the file “Spring 2020_PHRF.pdf” which contains the results after race 1 and race 2.  This Saturday’s race is going to be a nail bitter.  There are three boats tied for first with six points each: Damphino, Saucy Wench, and Shameless.  It’s still anyone's series to win given the worst scoring race for each boat will be replaced by the average of the two best races.  I think there are at least five boats out of nine that could come home with the gold and silver/bronze of a catch for all the boats.

 

It's a little far out to predict the weather, but right now I am seeing good winds out of the North-West.  By 6:00 PM, the worst of the powerboat chop will be over and the cooler night air hopefully will start to fill in.

 

Skipper meeting at 4:00 PM – Aqualand store parking lot area.  Race starts at 6:00 PM.  Still want to “Social Distance” and avoid the possible crowd at the Skipper meeting.  Send me a text anytime Sunday.  I will respond back around 4:30 PM or earlier with the course and start time.

That’s right.  The Corp of Engineering has re-instated certificates for activities on the lake.  That means after an almost three month hiatus we can finally get back on the water and race.  I know everyone has been working hard the last few months doing whatever it takes to make your boat faster.

 

Attached you can find the results from the first race.  Damphino buried everyone with a commanding performance to take the first.  Big Taka took second followed by little Shameless in third place.  Looking for Saucy Wench and Heatherset to improve on their race one standing.

 

Missed race 1?  Don’t worry, I am going to throw a little incentive in.  We only have two races left in the series.  The Sailing Instructions have been revised to provide a pseudo throw out.  See section 13 of the revised Sailing Instructions.  Another revision was to correct the date of race 7.

 

Which gets us to race 7.  It’s this coming Sunday.  Skipper meeting at 12:00 PM – Aqualand store parking lot area.  Race starts at 2:00 PM.  Still want to “Social Distance” and avoid the possible crowd at the Skipper meeting.  Send me a text anytime Sunday morning.  I will respond back around 12:30 or earlier with the course and start time.
