On Sunday we had a great day of practice. Thank you to PK4 and EW for coming out to play. Racing would have been much too difficult to those conditions ;)

We had a fun afternoon on the water. Probably should have done more of a 'practice' than we did. We and two other T-10's went out and did a few short races with rabbit starts. The upwind tune-up was great, but turning the corner and putting up our chute the first time raised my blood pressure, just a bit. Fortunately, we kept it together and didn't destroy anything (or anyone). I think we only jibed once, the entire afternoon...

How late was everyone out? On EW we headed in right as the winds picked up into the 30s and those dark clouds rolled in.

 

Grinder, where'd Imedi practice at? How are the arms feelin?

We were at SA 7. We set up a nice start line, a la deadliest catch bouy throwing. Did 3 w/l's & beat everyone. Great day out there. Imedi hit 16.6 kts, then it got a bit 'sporty'. Thanks to Lincmo for having 4 Goblin guys out. The boat & prodder are awesome. He also had some frosty beverages for us, too.

We saw ew's & the Sydneys going around 4 mi crib.

what a great day on the water yesterday, the 111 is a pretty sweet ride.

 

I saw the J 111 Night Hawk

A couple 36.7's; Sail Monkey, Fog, and possibly Endearvor?

A hand full of T-10's followed by skidmark (couldn't resist)

Calienti?

Scout

 

But no Chicken Wings, Pain Giver, or El Gae(lic)

 

 

You did see Endeavor out practicing on Sunday! But it wasn't the 36.7 it was the Bene 38 practicing for the cruising Mac - 8.8kts on the reach in to the club.

 

I think we scared the owners a little bit because they reefed the mast roller main after a couple of minutes of fun!

 

Felt great to be out on the water Sunday.

36.7s raced Sat at Belmont, we had 12 boats out there on the line and got in 2 races before the wind died, it was a blast. Got to try out my new GoPro HD Hero cam, shot some good videos of it all.

Drove up Lake Shore drive this evening took an hour to go from Randolph to Fullerton. I forgot how much I hate that drive. I did have the opportunity to do a parade review of the boats in Monroe & DuSable and it looks as if Big Country has the biggest stick in the harbor. I'm sure Ike is happy about that.

Besides the party Saturday night at CCYC Montrose and after racing at the SA1 Metro Olympic Course,

 

Here a couple of things happening this weekend on the Lake front.

 

Here's a plug for the Chicago Match Racing Center.

 

*Chicago, IL* -On Sunday May 29, the *Chicago Match Race Center* invites all

Chicagoans to come down to the lakefront at*Belmont Harbor* to watch a

match race sailing competition that will take place just yards from shore.

From 10 A.M. to 2 P.M. on Sunday, watch the Finals of the *Spring

Invitational Regatta, *featuring expert commentary explaining the racing,

food carts to grab a snack and a half mile of pristine lakefront to soak up

some rays and enjoy the beauty of Chicago in the summer.

 

Ten teams are entered and ready to compete at this 2011 season opener event

at the CMRC. The teams vary broadly in age and experience for the ISAF Grade

3 event, from unranked newcomers to defending champions, all getting an

opportunity to face off against each other in CMRC's 8 equally-matched*TOM

28* class keelboats.

 

"We are excited to offer this unique Memorial Day activity to Chicago,"

said *Tod Reynolds, Program Director* at CMRC. "Unlike 99% of sailing that

takes place miles offshore, this event will take place just a few yards from

an ideal spectating venue, with equally-matched pairs of boats battling it

out to see who will go home victorious. This racing is more similar to

NASCAR or boxing than stereotypical sailing."

 

Joining in on the shoreside action is the Trapeze School New York-Chicago, a

new fixture on the Chicago lakefront for 2011. They are dedicated to making

the flying trapeze available to anyone who seeks inspiration, challenge,

fitness or just a couple hours of unique fun. They offer classes, workshops,

parties and events. For the "Get out to the Lake Festival", TSNY-Chicago

will be putting on demonstrations of their course offerings.

 

*Sail Chicago* and 3 of Chicago's most active yacht clubs -*Chicago Yacht

Club, Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club *and*Columbia Yacht Club *- offer

numerous programs to sailors and power boaters of all ages and abilities,

while the *Judd Goldman Sailing Program of the Chicago Park District*focuses

on adaptive and junior sailing. All of these organizations will be on hand

with information on how to get involved.

 

More than just a season opener, the Spring Invitational will also determine

the *2011 Lake Michigan Match Race Champion*from among the top-finishing

Lake Michigan Sail Racing Federation competitors, with the top 2 LMSRF teams

also earning invitations to the *Richardson Trophy Match Racing Championship

*, at CMRC October 8-9, 2011. The highest-placed finisher will also receive

an invitation to the *US Match Racing Championship*, to be held a week later

in Corona del Mar, CA October 12-16, 2011. Seven of the 10 teams in this

field are eligible to qualify for these slots.

 

Racing is scheduled to start daily Saturday-Sunday, May 28-29 at 9 A.M. on

courses set off the park seawall at South Belmont Harbor. Real-time results

and videos can be found on the CMRC website and live text updates can be

followed on Twitter @matchracecenter.

Re the cmrc event for the weekend, it sucks it is during a 2race day weekend. Probably over 100 sailors who would go watch will be on the water otherwise occupied. I'd watch, but will be racing.

Traffic alert! Sunday morning is the annual Bike the Drive event, if you're coming downtown plan accordingly.

 

And Monroe Street garage is apparently closed for the entire season.

Yup saw it on the Westrec website this morning. They suggest Millenium garage or Du Sable lots as alternates. Haven't been there and had to park yet myself this season, with all of the summer festivals and such coming, you would think summer would be a really bad time to close that garage though.

 

Doesn't it seem like it has been under repair for the past few seasons anyhow? There always seems to be some kind of work going on in there.

CCYC did a great job keeping the racers informed during Sunday's postponment and eventual cancelation. We appreacated the radio broadcasts and in the end they made the right call to cancel the race. Saturday's races were well run and the radio boadcasts were helpful. Thank you very much, we apprecate it.

Ike - You can talk trash about them when you are out there and can actually beat them.

 

Skid - I remember when a certain T-10 had to go down to Crowley's and have their bottom redone mid season... Maybe you should pass along your horror story as words of wisdom.

 

Juice boxes for everyone, we're all winners!

 

Love you both,

 

Blubbs.

 

I thought the irony was obvious, but since some people need to have everything spelled out, thanks for pointing that out in such a sobering fashion.

Ditto Skid. Once, HOWL endured this lovely experience that even backing down during the middle of a race can't even change.

 

Otherwise shut the fuck up Blubber. When you buy a boat - and you don't scrub the bottom for two-three weeks - then and only then - can you suggest what we say to other furry club members.

 

 

Anyway, shouldn't you be working on Eddie's english version of the SI's? Seems yours need editing.

 

 

 

Welcome to the club.

What's funny is that boat rated faster than that on the LIS. In my experience, ratings are a little faster in area III. example, the DK 46 rates around -15 in the LIS but -33 in area III. Using that math the tripp should rate -9 or so.

That is why the men and women of Skidmarks are all clean-shaven. In addition to being faster, it also reduces occurrences of the gold bond "nutcake." I have mixed feelings about that, of course.

Okay Rod..I'm Irish, I have a problem with letting it go. "I won't do the Mac unless you're there Stan..." Sound familiar?

 

 

Very familiar, I stand by it.

Given the same situation my decision would still be the same - owners goes or I won't go.

We don't all have to agree, or see things the same regarding personal safety, financial situation, responsibilities or whatever matters that it takes to decide whether to do a race or not.

Some douchebag powerboater on DuSable B-dock insisted that Nightmare was coming back to Chicago. Could this be true?

It is now white and last I heard was going to sit in in the shed this summer, renamed Blondie (again). It was a few boats from yours in Muskegon.

Not sure about the rename as the boat has no name on it right now. There are no plans for it to sail in the lakes in 2011. When she returns to the water I do not believe she will be going to Chicago, but is possible.

COLORS what to expect.

 

Right now. Friday 2AM the forecast is for light fluky typical Area III winds. Hopefully, the sun will be out in full force to drive an easterly thermal early on. Shouldn’t take too much since the lake is unusually cold. Last two weekends the races at Belmont were really difficult to run and no doubt this will be another one. We’ll do our best to change courses as the wind dictates and if needed shorten and in worst case postpone /abandon.

With 9 sections and most sections with 4-6 boats, we will definitely combine sections at the starts. Listen to Ch 78 and keep an eye on the flags. No doubt we will use gates, but maybe not offsets. Fast turn arounds will be key. Our aim is not wait for all sections to finish before starting a new sequence. Once we have an entire section finished, we will attempt to restart that section asap. So for any subsequent race races keep an eye on the flags and listen to Ch 78 as it is likely we may start your section out of sequence. This is the only way to run efficiently and our goal

The Columbia RC crew is in a great rebuilding year with a lot of fresh younger people. However, we will not take that to be an excuse for not performing, since enough of us old timers did survive this winter and will be serving and teaching.

So if we screw up, it’s on me. We did OK, it’s on all of us
