    2020 Texas Centerboard Circuit

    Lindy and all others interested, Most of the clubs will be having or just had their January board meetings. We should have a schedule out here by the beginning of February or first week after. Looking at the usual suspects. 6-7 events, two in Dallas/Ft. Worth area. One Spring or Fall dinghyfest and the other possibility/probability is Ft. Worth boat club is inviting us to visit, Two Austin, Two Houston assuming that CYC is going to have it's spring fling and there is some interest in Seabrook and Wurstfest. Fishingmickey

    I think ya got a fun boat to sail Lindy! When I used to race a Laser I was always envious of the Megabyte. I used to ogle Steve W's Megabyte. The perfect foils, Carbon stick and spacious cockpit. It will be good to have you out with us again. FM

    We had 13 entries for Wurstfest. It was a very mixed fleet! Thistle, 29er, two C420's w/spin and trap, two Catalina 16.5's, JY15, Raider (Crump's old boat), My Contender, Vanguard Nomad, RS Feva, Holder 14 and a Butterfly. Saturday was light, shifty and had some painfully big holes in the breeze. Sunday was breezy 10-12 with some gusts to maybe 15. Sunday provided some very close racing for most of the fleet. The 29er owned the day though with straight bullets. A lot of close crossings upwind and crowded starts. Four races were sailed Saturday and three on Sunday. The final regatta of the season for the TCC ended up in a tie for first. Two Gray lost out in the tie-break with 2592 having more 1st places. Looking to find out who's interested in joining the TCC for next year! It was a pleasure meeting you Carson! Fishingmickey

    Gee Lifesaver, I didn't write the TCC rules. I'm just trying to keep it alive. I wonder why at times especially with your fine helpful responses. Harpoonette and I have discussed just letting it die a good death. It's been around for probably close to 20 years now. The TCC has had it's up's and downs for sure. I don't know the origins/reasoning behind the sail one boat, score one boat rule. but I am thinking that it is because some people have/had a good wardrobe of boats. So at this light air venue I'll sail my Thistle, Johnson 18, AC or MC scow and when I go to Seabrook and it is rough as a cob and heavy air I'll get out the Contender or whatever boat I have that handles chop better. I've also been informed that there used to be a 24 hour rule is which all excuses as to why you didn't do well had to be registered when they had the Yahoo TCC group up and running. Fishingmickey

    Nothing to report Tortuga. Weather ruled the days. Thunderstorms both days. Fishingmickey
