    Ugh, another day on the leeward rail? Wasn't it supposed to blow today? Sadly I watched the shower cells fly by from my office window.

      Yeah, me too DS. I'm glad some guys got to go sailing.

          Did you buy a boat pb?


          • #6
            What he said.

              PB wouldn't be caught dragging a fender like that. I think the 36.7 owner just has website envy.

                Fagundes Finale

                Saturday's 5th and final race of the GGYC's Manuel Fagundes Seaweed Soup saw 4 boats in contention to win the coveted Seaweed Soup Perpetual Trophy. Scott Easom's Farr 30 "Eight Ball," his Uncle Hank on the 8 Meter " Yucca", Bill Moore at the helm of the Express 27, "Shenanigans" and Peter Jeal's Folkboat "Polperro" , all entering with at least 3 bullets in their pockets after 4 races.

                The forecast was for a 6.2 high tide right at the start and ensuing ebb combined with a dying easterly that would change to either a Northwesterly, or Southwesterly, depending on where you gathered your information. Utilizing the tidal information " Because the midwinter currents almost always trump the wind" as PRO Matt Jones says, the RC stretched out the pin end of the starting line in a heavily current favored position, skewed to the west, hoping to encourage boats to stay offshore and ride the remaining flood for the 1st leg. " It was good in theory, but maybe be skewed it a bit too much" Matt said "We ended up getting a few boats bunching up right on shore where the current basically hosed them"

                With the marks off Fort Mason and inside the South Tower, the faster boats were blessed with 8 plus knots for the starts of PHRF 1 , 2 and 3, a 7.1 mile 2 lap Course 6 City Front parade, backwards from the traditional direction, setting their kites at Fort Mason and riding downhill toward the Gate. As the clock neared noon, the last 4 divisions were sent on a 1 lap Course 5, but were faced with a stronger ebb on the shore, weaker wind and even weaker flood in the middle. As expected, those who went outside got the benefit, albeit much smaller than the low raters enjoyed just a short time before. As the many of the Course 6 boats were on their 1st windward leg a pack of the faster boats had already rounded their 1st leeward gate and were making their way east again. But this is where the dynamics got interesting.

                As the wind from the east began to fizzle, some of that due to the approaching counter clockwise, backdoor weather front a new north westerly appeared. Literally it paid to be behind for some boats!

                A large number of the PHRF 2 and 3 were able to fly the kites from Fort Mason to the South Tower, douse, then reset and fly the kite to the finish! Even some of the unfortunate souls in the Folkboat and Catalina 34 fleet which had been struggling to avoid flushing out the Gate, were gifted with a mother nature assist as the new breeze. Others, further back in the course got the polar opposite and had an uphill climb both ways!

                To no one's surprise, Brad Webb's IACC, USA 76 waterlined the fleet and was the quickest around the 2 lap course in a mere 1 hour and 44 minutes, what was surprising was Gary Redelbergers Farr 36 "Racer X" finishing just 4 minutes behind and correcting out to win PHRF1. In PHRF 2, and needing a bullet to clinch the Fagundes Trophy, Scott Easom easily took the gun ahead of Greg Nelsen's Azzura 310 " Outsider" by more than 22 minutes. PHRF 3 was settled in a tad closer fashion, with Frank Morrow's IMX-38 "Hawkeye" was able to outfox the ever wiley Gordie Nash's Arcadia by 2:41 corrected and eliminating Hank Easom from collecting another season series trophy as Hank and crew on board Yucca finished 3rd.

                The 8 boat PHRF division was handily decided with Bill Moore' Express 27 " Shenanigans" 1h:13:04 romp, giving him a 15 minute plus advantage correct over Pat Broderick's Wyliecat 30 "Nancy" and putting him in podium position for the Trophy. There were 5 starters in the Catalina 34 division and 4 finishers. Top dog of the Day Was Kenneth Naylor's "Sea Spirit" by a decisive 20 minutes advantage over David Sanner's "Queimada", yet Sanner and company won the series with a 5 point advantage of 2nd place " All Hail".

                50/50 was the series champs in the Knarr Division, Brent Crawford and company ending the series with 6 points, despite finishing nearly 13 minute behind Mark Dahm's "Benino" on the day. Last but not least, Peter Jeal's Folkboat "Polperro" ended the season with 5 points after Saturdays race, winning the division, but not the days race, completing the course 34 minutes behind Richard Keldsen's "Nordic Star".
                By virtue of fleet size, Scott Easom is the winner of the 2013-2014 Manuel Fagundes Seaweed Soup Regatta with a score of 4 after tossing out a 3rd. Bill Moore and the Shenanigan crew also ended the season with 4 points, unfortunate due to fleet size, but a well deserved podium place!
