Race notes: 5-22-13 The operative word of the night was:   CURRENT! To elaborate: Started at pin end. Boat end favored by 10-12 degrees, but lots of adverse current. Pin end had half the current and was closer to even more current relief on the left. Windward mark jibe set spinnaker. Big positive current deep left [...]

Race 08/29/12 We were a little later than normal sailing out to the north course, luckily a southerly was filling in and The R/C had to postpone a bit to let it settle and figure out a course.  When they chose the yellow Buoy up at JBY, we were thinking that is a fun course but [...]

Firstly, I feel a bit of a sham, writing the bullet blog, when clearly Tim and the guys on 254 laid the smack down on the evening. Nice work! Back to when we were heroes... Our game plan for the race was to start towards boat and stay until we wanted to tack to then approach [...]

Shields Fleet 9 Race Report 7/11/12 Summer Series Races #1 & #2 Conditions: SSW 10-12, Ebb What a great night for the 254!  A 2,1 night would be great for any boat out there, but it's really sweet for some relative newcomers like us. Great job by the race committee to get the two races in [...]

Race 3 Bullet Blog: June 6, 2012 The 107 crew appeared to be on a harbor tour to nowhere for the second week in a row, drifting out of Brenton Code against a surprising current as most competitors waited on their moorings. We’d done the same a week ago and received a bit of kidding for [...]
