Cat Thursdays @ NYC

Today’s regatta was the Nacra 17. The Blake Sea was well behaved for today‚Äôs regatta. However there were powerboats moored all over the place including at every mark for the first race. All drivers were cooperative and stayed clear when asked.

The racing was fast with a 21 kt. wind. Bianca was impressive with her racing. She would have won all three except during the second race a border crossing at Endeavor Yachts exposed her to massive lag. She had no control for almost 15 seconds and the boat turned around and capsized. Good sailing Bianca.

Cats Thursdays @NYC – July 2nd, 11am

Good weather and decent turn-out marked this week’s races.

I have set up new courses for the racers to discover: one using the race-line as a gate after the main downwind leg (and its reversed version) and another one doing a circular run around the northern half of the Blake Sea. It seems that the sailors enjoyed the courses from comments afterward. Indeed the races were quite fun, with much action and surprising shifts, especially as the Blake Sea was quite busy that day.

Wind was a gusty 17 knots from the South (Var=2/Gusts=5)

Next week, we will sail the Nacra again. Until then, keep safe and practice ! Cheers ūüôā

Race Results:

Race 1: A02 – Gate UP!

Some exciting racing, from the get-go as Moon and Viv crossed the line first, with Bianca very fast and hot on their heels. They split in the first leg and Viv took the lead at mark #1 while Moon and Bianca had some issues. The race positions remained unchanged from there, with Moon eventually crashing. Sea experienced troubles in the pre-start and took a very delayed start but sailed well after that.

Race 2: A02R – Gate UP! Reversed

Again, a similar race with Sea taking a better start, as she and Viv remained toe-to-toe over the first tack. Moon took the lead and kept it until mark #5 where Viv took advantage of a moored powerboat to slip past and sail ahead. Bianca was still adapting to the gusts and did not show her usual speed…yet. Fun race with plenty of duelling action though.

Race 3: A03 – Squared CCW

In the final race, Palani joined the fray to make it a 5-boat affair. Exciting start again, as Bianca cleverly passed around the feuding duo of Moon/Viv at the committee boat. She took the lead and was never seen again by the rest of the fleet, finally adjusting to today’s gusts. Behind, Moon and Viv had a lively race, with tight duelling, eventually going Viv’s way at mark #6, at the end of the long upwind leg from Swash to Binnacle. Behind, Palani and Sea had an interesting duel as well, which Palani eventually won.

(*) Sea(Filax) crossed the finish line before rounding the last mark, so her time is incorrect. She finished after Palani, though.

Bandit 22 LTE June 29

For our second time racing the Bandit 22 LTE we had a great turn out. And again a couple of new faces. It was nice to see Serena racing again, it has been a couple of years for her. It had been a week since the last restart of the Blake Sea and it was beginning to show. We had crashes every race

The race went very well and no fouls were observed or protests filed which is amazing considering the number of boats. There were times when several boats were rounding a mark together and everyone allowed room. Thank you! Congratulations to Bianca on her two wins and Moon on his one.

Cat Thursday, Nacra 17 25 June

Today was Nacra 17 day for the Nantucket Cat Thursday. After two days of very bad weather the Blake Sea finally calmed down after a second restart and we had no crashes.

The racing was close and exciting to watch. There were times when all five boats were rounding a buoy at the same time and amazingly no fouls. There was one time when a boat capsized and a second boat capsized trying to avoid. Both skippers and myself had a laugh over that.

Congratulations to Jenna for her two wins and Moon for his one. Next week is Flying Shadow Thursday.

Bandit 22LTE Retgatta June 23

We welcomed some new to our Monday races tonight with our inaugural Bandit 22LTE regatta. This was also Nelly‚ÄĚs first ever race. Congratulations Nelly on finishing all three races.

The 22LTE proved to be a fast boat in 17 kt winds and with a choice of three head sails some struggled selecting the best one at times but all had fun. Thank you to Gemma for directing the race.

Race3 Start

Cats Thursdays @NYC – June 4th, 11am

The weather was not the best with our sailors today as we experienced more DNFs than usual.

Yet, the races were animated and exciting with several close duels and repeated changes of lead. Congrats to Bianca and Moon for their wins, welcome back to Palani who hadn’t graced our Cats races in a while and good progresses shown by Sea/filax, despite her poor luck today (2 DNFs).

Next week, we will sail the Nacra again. Until then, keep safe and practice ! Cheers ūüôā

Race Results:

Race 1: Course NYC 906 – Wind 16 knots from S-SE (155)

Some uneventful racing, as Bianca raced ahead and won easily while the rest of the fleet struggled with various issues. Nevertheless some close action between Palani and Viv most of the race, making it fun to watch.

filax Carter IDBS71EC — Start: 00:00:41 — Last lap: not finished

Race 2: Course 918 – Wind 16 knots from S-SE (155)

Again, some issues perturbed the race. Bianca had a fast start taking an early lead just ahead of Moon and Viv, all on port tack. Then, Bianca was stopped by some unknown element and Moon took the lead, Viv following close until she fell off her boat. Moon maintained his lead to win the race. Eventually, Sea/Filax caught up with a still-struggling Bianca to round up the podium. Palani finished a distanced fifth.

Race 3: Course 921 – Wind 16 knots from S-SE (155)

In the final race, conditions went from bad to worst with only two sailors completing the course. Viv was off before start, Sea got a delayed start and couldn’t finish either, and Bianca crashed after taking a near-perfect start: tough luck for all three! Moon and Palani managed to stay on their boat to finish with similar times around the course: congrats to both in such difficult conditions.

Trudeau 12M race 6 June

We had a nice turnout but unfortunately the Blake Sea wasn’t very cooperative. All three races were plagued with crashes. Special congratulations to Gemma in the first race for being able to recover after a crash and still win. She had a long lead before the crash and was able to get back in and hold it for a very close and exciting finish against Victor.

In the third race everyone except for Sea crashed. All were able to recover but unfortunately for Gemma her boat lost race wind so she is DSQ.

Cats Thursdays @NYC – May 28th, 11am

More exciting racing today on the Blake Sea as we gathered for our weekly Cats regatta, on the Nacra17: a nice fleet of six boats got together, ready to battle in a pleasant southerly breeze and good overall conditions.

The races were quite exciting to follow, as often the case with Nacra races! Three different winners prove the point: Congrats to Bianca, Cole and Justin. Thanks y’all for coming to the races. Next week, we will be back foiling with the FLYING SHADOW. Cheers!

Race Results:

Race 1: Course NYC 901 (wind 18SSV2G3D+1) 

Bianca and Cole both started fast, with Reni hot behind them. Bianca slowly extended her lead while Cole, Reni and Justin battled behind for honours. A little further, Sea and Liv had a duel of their own, which turned to Sea’s advantage as Liv got re-acquainted with the Nacra. Ahead, Bianca kept her lead, finishing clear ahead, and Reni eventually got the better of the chasing trio.

Race 2: Course NYC 917 (wind 18SSV2G3D+1)

The second race was a capsize story! Bianca again took the early lead, with Liv leading a tight chasing pack. However, the first mark proved her demise as she failed to hike quickly enough and tipped over. The fleet managed to round her boat safely, and maintained pressure on Bianca, though. Some interesting tactical options led to the next mark, with Bianca still leading ahead of Cole and Justin. Reni, Sea and Liv followed in that order. The race was heading to these settled results, but Bianca got unbalanced at the next mark in Turnbuckle (always a tricky spot!) and tipped over too, much to the delight of Cole and Justin, who both edged past her boat. The final leg was an exciting run with all boats at full speed: Cole managed to keep the lead despite Justin and Bianca closing in on the reach. Behind, Liv kept pressing Sea and edged past her in the last meters to the line, while Reni finished solo in 4th between the two groups.

Race 3: Course NYC 920 (wind 18SSV2G3D+1)

The final race saw a seventh boat join our fleet. This time, Bianca got delayed in pre-start and started from the back, behind a tight fleet. After a spectacular first leg, with several crosses and changes of lead, Justin rounded the first mark ahead. Behind, Bianca displayed great speed to point in 3rd already, in close battle with Liv(2nd) Cole(tied 3rd) and Reni (5th). On the long beam reach leg, the more experienced Nacra sailors proved faster as Justin extended his lead, followed by a close trio of Cole, Bianca and Reni. Liv and Palani followed behind but Sea had to retire due to technical troubles. Bianca accelerated to get free of the battling trio, aided by the close duel between Cole and Reni. In such a tight battle, contact was made and Cole was deemed at fault, thus dropping behind after taking her penalty. No other change happened in a more widely spaced fleet, Justin keeping Bianca at bay to win the race.

Trudeau 12M races 27th May 2020

 

I came to race but stepped in for Justin as he was unable to RD today, although I did sneak in and race the first one

We had our usual three races over courses chosen by Night, ty Night.

The winds were a bit “hairy” for the 12M due to the fact I was unprepared, however I didnt get any complaints even if the 12M whooshed along like a jet-ski .

It was lovely to see Lampy racing, wooooo, hope to see more of you Lampy, and Ellie too.

Now to the results, and Congratulations to Moon for two nice wins, and Lampy for his win

Race3 Start

Cats Thursdays @NYC – May 21th, 11am

Light winds but stiff competition this past Thursday as we took our Flying Shadows out in the Blake Sea. Sailors were: Moon, Bianca, Sea/Filax and Viv (all sailing solo), joined by Reni and Tracy as crew.

Change of scenery as we sailed from the BOWSPRIT raceline, on a short triangular course. The plan was to repeat the same course as the wind kept drifting from one race to the next. However, plans were changed after the south-western part of the Blake Sea became rough to sail under some griefers’ attacks. Some people simply don’t have a life, not even a second one… So we switched to a course through Nantucket YC to finish the day.

As proof of the competitive spirit today, we had three different winners for the three races. Congrats to Bianca and Moon for their strong performances in the short but intense runs. 

The first race saw three FS starting in tight formation. Bianca showed superior speed on the start line and took the lead, followed by Moon while yours truly struggled to get her sails properly trimmed, so much so that the second group of starters quickly caught up. Some interesting duel followed between Viv and Reni. Yet, in the end, positions remained  the same, and Bianca got the first win!

In the second race, the wind shift troubled the sailors, with only Reni adapting quickly and taking the best start. Bianca and Moon followed with Sea/Filax a bit behind. Viv closed the fleet with a late start. A great 3-way battle unravelled up front as Moon, Bianca and Reni battled  for the lead. Moon eventually got the upper hand, with a close finish for second between Bianca and Reni! Congrats to all three for the nice display of skills and fighting spirits, especially in the difficult conditions prevailing in the SW part of the course due to the major griefing events from Barbarossa.

In the final race, all five took a good start. Bianca was first to cross the line, but Viv took the early lead, as she started upwind of the fleet and benefited from wind-shadowing her opponents. The race remained open though, as Bianca close the gap in the next run downwind. In the tight waterway through the NYC marina, Viv managed to keep ahead and even extend her lead, just enough to finish the run more relaxed.  Meanwhile, Moon experienced issues in the back (crash). Reni and Sea managed to sail it through, in that order. Congrats for all the great sailing skills and good fun spirits. 

Thanks y’all for coming to the races. Cheers!
