Nacra @NYC – April 29, 2:30p

Fun races again today as Gia, Moon, Palani and Liev with crew Beatrice join me for our NACRA races. Amy also joined, and crewed for Moon. Congrats to Gia for making a clean sweep, scoring three brilliant come-from-behind wins.

Weather on the Blake Sea was so-so, alternating the good with some squalls affecting part of the fleet. Everyone finished in all the races though, except in race 1, where Liev had to retire after falling overboard leaving his poor crew to linger on the boat for a while. For some weird reason, the line had not picked up his boat at start either.

In race 1, Moon started well, rounding the first mark ahead, but he struggled in the next downwind as Palani and Gia passed him and Amy. Palani seemed en route to a victory but Gia caught him in the last reach leg, passing inside at the last mark, for a tight finish.

Race 2 started a bit similarly, with Moon and Palani crossing together for a near perfect start. Gia was not far behind while Liev and Beatrice took time to get started. Moon established a solid lead while Gia was busy attacking then passing Palani. At mark 2, Moon was ahead but Gia was on a roll and caught him in the next reach, taking advantage of her swifter acceleration after rounding the mark. She took enough of a lead to not let Moon back in the final run. Well done again!

As all sailed so well and fast, we had time for an extra race: 923, a quick back n’ forth reaching speedster. Moon again was first across the line, with Liev and Bea close behind. Palani and Gia were a bit delayed as they started together 20 seconds later. At mark 1, Liev was leading, Moon a close second, while Gia had passed Palani. The order remained the same until mark 2, with Liev leading Moon, and Gia catching up, with Palani in tow. The third leg was decisive: Moon hit a squall and lost some time, opening the door for the next two. Gia accelerated and took the lead at mark 3. Behind her, the fleet got tighter, with very little gaps between the 3 pursuers. Liev managed to hang tough to his 2nd spot while Moon sneaked by a surprised Palani on the line!

Thanks to all for coming to sail and providing such an exciting show. I hope to see more of you next week. Cheers !

Nacra @NYC – April 15, 2:30p

More exciting races today as Moon, Gemma and Lalia joined me to race courses 904 and 913-2 laps in a moderate 18-knot breeze.

Congrats to Moon who won the regatta with his 2-1 record. The start wasn’t key today as both wins were both come-from-behind performances.

Race 1, on course 904, provided many turnovers as the 4 boats kept close all along. Gemma got the better start but the fleet remain packed. At first mark, Moon had the lead, closely followed by Laila, Gemma and Viv. On the next leg, sailors took diverging options with regards to passing Crows Nest. Viv’s option to the North paid off well as she closed on Moon at the next mark. The downwind legs from there were a masterclass in wind shadowing, with a serious re-shuffling of the positions. At the next mark, the fleet was again tight-knot together, and Viv managed to squeeze closer to the island and leap ahead of Moon on 2 well executed tacks. The tacking duels went on until the penultimate mark, which Viv reached first to extend her lead towards the finish, enough to take a penalty 360 and keep ahead. Moon encountered a gennaker malfunction which slowed him down, yet he kept to his second place. Laila and Gemma finished within 2 seconds of each other after a race-long duel. Phewww!!

Race 2, a 2-laps affair around the short course 913, was essentially a duel between Moon and Viv. Lalia was close behind the two until she was sent home on a bad cross in the first leg of lap 2. Gemma faced issues nearly from the start and was never in contention. Viv took the early lead and rounded mark 1 clear ahead, but a bad gennaker set combined with Moon stealing her wind reversed the positions. As Moon went on without any mistake, no change occurred thereafter in a race marked by issues for the followers.

Thanks to all for coming to sail and providing such an exciting show. I hope to see more of you next week. Cheers !

B22 @NYC – April 12, 2:30p

Very exciting races today as Moon, Sea, Juicy and the duo Amy and Ester came to sail in this earlier time slot. Bianca also joined us in race 2 and 3.

Congrats to Moon and Sea, who shared line honours. Yet, all showed great poise and sailing skills on the quick Bandit 22.

Race 1 went on course 927, the shortest used on the day. Start was good, with the fleet packed on the upwind leg. Sea got the best start but Moon squeezed by on the way to mark #2, taking advantage of his wind shadow to take the lead. He progressively extended from there while Sea and Amy battled behind all the way until the finish line in an exciting duel. Juicy closed the fleet, never too far.

Race 2, on course 928, saw some more epic duels, first between Bianca and Sea on the first leg, until Bianca broke off with a border-line tack in front of Sea. Moon, who took a port start, sailed by himself unhindered and rounded mark #1 first. He then didn’t make any mistake and didn’t let anyone catch up, including Bianca who never got close enough to put pressure on him. Behind, the fight raged on, again between Amy and Sea, as they sailed in close quarters until Amy took a break to wait for Juicy, apparently. Exciting sailing all along.

Course 929 was used for race 3, which turned out to be the most interesting despite some racers retiring early due to crashes. The 5 boats started in close formation, with Amy & Ester leading the way. Bianca, Sea, Juicy and Moon followed in that order. Juicy, in the bad air, was first to break ranks, shortly followed by Sea, while Bianca was the first to retire (crash). At first mark, Sea’s option had paid off and she rounded in the lead, closely followed by Moon and Amy. Sadly then, Amy and Juicy went down, too. Meanwhile, Moon and Sea were deep in a highly tactical game, each sailing their own path, with several changes of lead along the way. Sea went for the starboard side upwind, which paid off for her again as she rounded the last mark ahead. However, Moon was hot on her tail, for the final run. Again, they initially split at the mark, Moon going left while Sea opted for a more direct course down the wind. On the cross, Moon had the starboard advantage and pressed for it, but was a bit short and crossed behind, which sealed the race. And, despite his late effort to windshadow Sea, he had to concede the win.

No protest despite some really tight matches showed every one’s sportsmanship and willingness to have fun in these friendly races.

Thanks to all for coming to sail and providing such an exciting show. I hope to see more of you next week. Cheers !

July 23 Thursday Cat Race, Nacra 17

We had a small turn out for today’s race but still had fun. The Blake Sea was in beautiful shape and there was a noticeable lack of interference from tourists. Moon swept the regatta but was pressed close by Justin throughout the third race with the lead changing a few times. In the second race both Justin and Moon hit the same corner at the same time (it was very close racing), both were unseated however Moon was able to recover and Justin not.

Cat Thursdays @ NYC

Today’s regatta was the Nacra 17. The Blake Sea was well behaved for today’s 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 🙂

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.
