Wednesday, 20 September 2017

To all Wednesday Night Racers, this is a reminder that racing is cancelled for Wednesday, 20 September 2017. This was to be the last race of the Fall Series, but the current models are too unpredictable to safely sail in Boston Harbor. 

However, that doesn't mean that racing is over! Don't forget that next week, the 27th, is the last race of the "Spring" series, and a mermaid told me that there will be rogue racing as well going up to around Halloween.

Lastly, please sign up for the Boston Light Race, a joint undertaking between Savin Hill YC and Constitution YC. This completely free pursuit race starts near Spectacle, involves a "tour" around all 3 major Boston Harbor lighthouses, and ends with a party at Savin Hill YC with free food and a cash bar. See regattaman.com for details!

Bermuda 1-2

Tomorrow, June 2nd around 12, one of the more audacious races on the East Coast gets underway. The Bermuda 1-2 looks to start in good breeze and a fast run for the single-handed leg. This year, Constitution Yacht Club is well represented by veterans Mike Dreese (Toothface 2) and Jonathan Green (Inigo Montoya) as well as newcomer Phil Haydon on Prairie Gold. Those of us who have crossed the Gulf Stream know that it's nothing to trifle with under the best conditions with a full crew, but being single or double-handed introduces a whole new level of concern as fatigue sets in and the seas build. We'll all be watching for the next 3 - 5 days as the fleet of close to 40 boats make their way from Newport to the land of Goslings Rum. You can follow along too - the race will be live-tracked on yellowbrick at the following link: http://yb.tl/onetwo2017#

Best of luck to all of the competitors - we'll be looking forward to hearing the stories when our sailors are safely back in New England.
