    YRA Season Closer - October 5th & 6th

    It's hard to believe it's officially Fall already. Where did the summer go? The days are getting shorter, the evenings are getting cooler, and, the YRA racing season is winding down. Our final big race weekend is coming up soon. The Season Closer, hosted by Corinthian Yacht Club, is set for October 5th & 6th.

    We had hoped to run the Pt Bonita course on Saturday's race day, but the tides were literally against us, so round the Islands it is, along with the Crazy 8 pursuit race on Sunday. H aven't registered for the race yet? You can enter online HERE HERE. Already registered? Download the Sailing Instructions and view the Division Assignments HERE HERE.

    After Saturday's race the Corinthian YC is looking forward to seeing all the racers back at the club. Saturday night will feature music on the deck along with hamburgers and other goodies for dinner. The Corinthian bar will also be open to all racers and their crews.

    Racers can find breakfast on Sunday at a number of local eateries that are a short walk away including; Caffe Acri (opens 7:00am), and New Morning Café (opens 6:30am), Sam's (opens 9:30am).

    We looking forward to seeing the Season Closer racers at the Corinthian with all the racers on October 5th and 6th!

      That was painful

      We went the wrong way and spent 1.5 hours on the East side of Alcatraz enjoying the sun and about 200 flies that seem to slough off the island at this time of year. And just as we rounded, we met the "Angel First" folks coming the other way. We ended up about 1/4 mile from the finish in zero wind and 2 kts of ebb at about 4:30, which was my cut-off time for getting back to Alameda and home before the boys bedtime (school tomorrow etc). So we bagged it. A fine line between teaching your kids "don't be a quitter" or "don't be an idiot".

        Yeah, it was a beautiful weekend on the bay but not necessarily conducive to sailboat racing....

          Beau and Stacey Vrolyk enjoyed some late afternoon breeze on his Spirit 46' S'agapo

          Paul Sutchek was on Gypsy Lady both days looking for that magical puff...

          Brian Boschma took his Olson for a spin up the Southbay seeking wind and managed
          to find 10 knots in 78 degrees. Thats fahrenheit, not direction...

          Sergei Zavarin was a guest on board William Helvestine's SC 50 "Deception" for Saturday
          and did catch some wind on the water, but from the east and early. Your average Zephyr
          blows hard in the wee hours, but tends to back off as the sun heat the land mass and the pressure
          gradient evens out...

          Results tell the tale.

          Musta been a hoot in Tiburon Saturday night. Warm weather, YRA Party Circuit revelers and the end of the Melges 24 Worlds...
