    5.70 Resin Report



    SF Open 5.70 fleet in Resin Regatta 2014
    By CJ Anderson co-skipper Boaty USA310

    The Berkeley Olympic Circle provided yet another weekend of fantastic race conditions for the Resin Regatta hosted by the San Francisco YC on April 12 and 13. The Open 5.70 fleet joined other 5 fleets, Melges 24, Express 27, Knarr, Etchells and Cal 20s for 2 days of racing. Both days saw a steady increase from medium light to medium heavy breeze. Saturday was a build up to max ebb with lots of ranging up into top mark laylines, clawing down to the gate, and ever increasing chop. Sunday was slack to start, moving into the front half of flood. Both days presented the ongoing dilemma between working oscillations that trended right vs often finding more breeze left, but also more chop far left.

    Marc Finot, Dave Peckham and Kenyon Stewart on the Open 5.70 Frolic, USA208, came out of the gate with a strong performance in race one, fending off our attempts to close the gap, leaving us in Second place, and the Cathies on Boudicca USA214 with a solid season debut in Third place.

    For race two, Ben Anderson drove Boaty really well and had us out in front but I got a wrap in the kite on our last gybe and Marc, Dave and Kenyon picked us off for another First place finish, with the Cathies taking another Third place finish. Also during race two, Fred Bouju on Ocealys2

    USA276 had contact with a Knarr, lost a shroud, and his rig folded. There were no injuries and Fred seemed to maintain his usual upbeat perspective. Kudos for handling adversity with style!

    Race three saw the most breeze of the weekend with great surfing conditions for the Open 5.70. Multiple boats reported surfing speeds exceeding 16 knots. Dave at the helm of Frolic led wire to wire, with us in Second, and Dale Scoggin on Frisky USA 281 grabbing Third - demonstrating great boat-handling in the fresh conditions.

    The Results Are In



    IF you were lucky enough NOT not to be strapped with last minute tax calculations efforts OR dealing with mechanical issues with your aqua transport device, you may have been out on the water this weekend to enjoy what looked like some pretty nice conditions on the Bay.

    Saddled with reality, we alas, have little to offer than the knowledge that Saturday started off with a steady SW that grew and clocked, that and a healthy ebb sweeping off the Berzerkeley flats where most of this weekends events were centered, led to some titillating conditions, as it should be. Recon from the highway late Saturday provided witness to what surely was anything but a drifter.

    Your thoughts, pics and trinkets are welcome.

    For 2014, 5 divisions, 4 starts. Multihulls have last start.

    First group (division 1 and 2) starts on time (12:30pm), then RC postpones the remaining starts for 30 minutes while ship enters the anchorage.

    Wind 15 knots at the start.

    Start: F-25C Mojo on starboard at boat end, F-31R Ma's Rover and Corsair Sprint MkII Lookin' Good at pin end, on port.

    Strong ebb, and wind in the 18 knot range made from some great sailing.

    Ma's Rover could not find BB1, and rounded some other orange mark.

    Getting through the maze of anchored ships made for interesting tactical choices.

    Mojo got the gun by 6 minutes over the F-31R Ma's Rover, and 9 minutes ahead of the F-27 Chaos, however learned that we had mixed up mark 35 and 35. As a result had to request a RAF. Unfortunately both Ma's Rover and Chaos also sailed the course incorrectly, making the F-27 Peregrine Falcon the winner, followed by the Sprint 750 MkII Lookin' Good, and the F-24MkII Foxtrot.
