Here's a pic of me wearing my 1985 Cleveland Race Week shirt....and sunglasses that were 2X bigger than they needed to be. (Anone else remember Nautalex / Vuarnet sunglasses?)

 

I think the pic was in Annapolis or somewhere else...I don't think that's EYC.

 

Thought you all might get a kick out of that.

Back then, I think it was called Rocky River Yacht Club.

 

There wasn't such a thing as Sail Camp for me. I lived in Kinsman OH next to a farm. My mom got a call one day from my teacher, she said I was "lying to the other kids about yacht racing on the weekends." Bitch...

Zar - Will there be another SA gathering with swag this year?

yes, the ED is sending a box of goodies to clothe the hoards of SA unwashed...I'm figuring Sat the 26th I've had some suggestions to take it off site, but its hard enough to get everyone together as it is!....we'll have to take another stab at a winter get together this year

I wouldn't mind those splits. It would be tough for everyone in the fleet if they went from -42 to 45. Nothing like finishing and counting many minutes on the stopwatch.

Someone should point out that it's not a week, it's TEN consecutive days of sailboat racing!

The local TV weather people think that the weather may or may-not get interesting tomorrow (Saturday) between 3 PM and 6 PM.

So the Friday evening storm disappeared before it got to Cleveland, but the wind got gusty after midnight.

The early Saturday morning storm seems to be fading and heading SE.

No T-10 finishes, the wind direction was all over the map. (this is second-hand information, I wasn't out there)

Any Friday results from the T-ten lake erie championship?

This off the class website - not much information in a not so timely fashion;

 

updated 6/20/10

T-Ten Lake Erie Championship - 16 boats

 

Congratulations to Scott Erwin, T-Ten President, and Team IBall for winning the T-Ten Lake Erie Championship at Cleveland Race Week One Design Weekend. Edgewater Yacht Club and Fleet 19 sponsored this well run T-Ten sanctioned event with three days of racing, plenty of parties and plenty of prizes. Conditions went from totally shifty on Friday to heavy winds on Saturday and great sailing on Sunday. Everyone checked in according to the T-Ten rules and had a great time. More details and photos to follow.

A friend that was on the RC boat said that the T-10 that ZAR was on-board withdrew and was met at the dock by an ambulance. Just confirmed that he was admitted to Lakewood Hospital. Prayers for a speedy recovery...

Who 'wit? Your condition was probably caused in part by being on or around a T10.

Ok so I'm on the weather mark boat on course 3, (jets & Ensigns) we're setting up for the last race, and the RC calls for the weather mark to be moved out to 1.5 miles! I figure if they do 2 laps, thats a 6 mile Ensign race.....SHEEEEEIT by the tme I get in the beer will be gone....so I grab my chest, and do my best Fred Sanford!.ok. I got carried away

One Design...or Oh Damn we're gonna crash...

Doesn't that sugar scoop kind of spike the OD thing? Maybe you sould be listing "OOD" One Off Design

 

Nice job in the Roberts. It's nice to see a new boat get a few wins out of the box. If more did maybe there would be more new boats around!

ZAR doesn't have them. He has always relied on his "eagle eyes". besides those new fangled GPS' are confusin.

 

They are listed in the attached document. Not the correct SI's for the event, but you just want the co-ordinates anyways. They are on line on the BB.

Probably. What's in a name though...

 

Thank you. We learned a ton doing 19+ in the dark. Made a couple mistakes that cost us a bunch of time. Goal is to have a blast learning the boat this year but the expectation is to win. We're just lucky to have a solid crew and a hell of a owner/driver.

 

If everybody had the chance to feel 19 on plane...there would be a lot more new boats around. Addictive.

Wait till you pass 20.

No kidding. Been a memnber of the "20 kont club" for a few years now. An experience. We had awards at our first winter crew party for everyone on the boat when the GPS said we went over 20.
