  • Manuel Fagundes Seaweed Soup Deec 1st, 2018

    December's Manuel Fagundes Seaweed Soup came in with a quick cold front brushing through the bay in the mid morning hours,
    with the brief rainmaker working across the central bay just before the GGYC's 11:30 1st gun.

    With a cool brisk westerly in the mid to high teens, and a building ebb, the fleet were all sent west to Blackaller then over to Harding Rock.

    Fleets PHRF 1, 2 & 3 getting the 7.4 nm course 16, a nice run down to Blossom, then return to finish.

    PHRF 4, the Catalinas, Folkboats and Knarrs were sent on the shorter course 15, a 5.5 nm ride to Fort Mason then finish.

    The result? A mass flury of finishers at the club giving the committee a mild rush of time takings to work through, then poof, all over!

    IN the 9 boat PHRF 1 fleet, Michael Moradzadeh's SC52 Oaxaca was the 1st to finish but correct out 9th, giving
    way to Paul Dorsey's SOTO 30 Gentoo, taking corrected 1st place.

    Nathalkie Criou's Beneteau Figaro, ENVOLEE won PHRF 2 outright and corrected out by 2 second over Bruce Dunwoodie's C&C 115 Raven

    PHRF 4 would witness Ray Lott's Express 27 El Raton nipping fellow E-27, Bill Moore's Shenanigan's by 6 seconds

    IN PHRF 5, Ron Young's IOD Youngster would win outright and correct out as well

    Chris Owen's Motley would take the 5 boat Catalina 34 fleet

    Risley Sams Kraken takes the bullet in the Knarrs and James Vernon's Polruan takes the Folkboat bullet.
