Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. Long-range forecast looks great for Newport, register now and save a few bucks!

Looks like the F-18s may be racing with 12-metres on Friday, where else will you ever get to do that???

Cats will race on the fast boat circle during the weekend. Looks like three classes, so minimal traffic.

Mike

New RC team for the cat circle this year, BTW. Hint: the PRO is a cat sailor...

Glad to hear it. Last year's cat RC work was less than stellar, but all in all a great regatta.

Weird wind today, northerly following a departing storm last night.

Forecast for the weekend is stellar, sea breeze (SSW) and sun!

Race 1 winner: Ravi Parent

Around 10 boats racing, sadly I don't have crew names, will try to get those.

Unofficially...

Race 4 winner: Sandra Tartaglino

The fleet used up all the breeze from the northerly. The RC considered towing, now the southerly is starting to fill and they are arriving at the harbor.

4 different winners out of a 10 boat fleet. Sounds like close racing.

Goofy northerly here this morning, to invert into a sea breeze later today. Plan is to AP ashore for at least one hour, first start to be no earlier than noon.

Sorry for the dearth of info today. After a postponement ashore, we launched into a slowly dying northerly. By enduring the ensuing bake-fest, we had the fleet in position when the sea breeze filled and got in two good races.

Had some issues with anchors not holding, otherwise a great day. Scores are on their way to the web...

OK, just wrapped up a redress hearing that I filed on behalf of Philip, due to an issue of the signal boat adrift and unable to correct position during the finish of Race 1. The jury decision is that Lars and Philip will both be scored in first place for that race.

Results will be updated tomorrow.

Wow, what a day! We're still wrapping up, but carnage so far includes one holed A-Cat, one MOB A-Cat, a leaking/holed F-18, and a dismasted F-18...

The holed boats were boat vs boat, interfleet collision in the middle of open water (not at a mark).

Results posted online have not yet been updated/corrected. They were corrected before the awards.

Winners:

F18: Bob Merrick / Tyler Burd
A-Cat: Joe Bello

We used up all of the clock to get four solid races for the cats today. The VX Ones elected to stop at three.

Joe Bello also stopped racing to retrieve the MOB, return him to his boat, and still won that race (and the regatta).

On a sail I loaned him so he could race, no less. The kid's good, but don't let him see this or it'll go to his head. wink
