Race Week Begins

Recommended Posts

Holy crap - visibility is 25 feet! Our cameramen and girls are jumping back aboard, soaked to the tits, and we cannot see a single racing boat. There is no way they know where the marks are.

 

Clean, I can hear the excitement in your voice.

 

Great stuff (wish I could see the wet tee shirts!! :P )

Thank you!

 

BTW, IRC 1 order is Rosebud, Ran, Synergy, Rio.

 

Mascalzon Latino wins - no surprise there. Barking mad second, Joe Fly just behind, nipping - nipping...

 

Those three are a logn way ahead of the rest of the little fleet.

What the hell is that Custom 41 ?? 41204? Man that is one whacky looking paint job to put it nicely.

 

That boat is from Sarasota owned by the Ulmman loft dealer, Doug Fisher. Just raced against that boat a couple of weeks ago (wiped me out at the start, thank you very much). It is very beamy, twin wheels, reminds me of a RTW style design, say an Open forty designed several years before there were any. Lifting keel and rudder (handy around Tampa Bay)

 

Should be a player for honors in PHRF1.

 

Doug is a major player too - He was the BM for Stars N' Stripes for the Mac Races - I understand he's got the previously submerged mast for her down in Sara

 

Is the boat coming back also?

 

 

I've been looking for it at the Squadron from time to time and haven't seen her - she stays on a ball out there (last I saw her)

--------------------------------------

Do you have a pic of Doug's (a.k.a. "Squeeky"s) new toy?? He has a bud who does wild boat graphics... remember the Henderson 30 "Purple Haze"??

 

That boat started out life as "Look Again" and then affectionately called "Look the other way" :blink: . It was designed by an obscure Kiwi ex-pat named Robertson and build by a cabinet maker in Miami. It's only appearance @ KWRW under it's original regime was an unmitigated train wreck.

 

Doug has done an awesome job of resurrecting what had been generally considered a turd. He also deserves kudos for single-handedly bringing the "Eddie Van Halen" look back into yachting.

Here's a little thing we did last night with Quantum VP Farley Fontenot, talking about Terry's big win, Quantum's philosophy, and the myth that "all sails are pretty much the same"

 

 

 

What a weird-ass morning.

Farley's suggestion. They love being part of the Melges class. It's pretty interesting to see the makeup of sails in the M24s now - instead of the 80% North majority we've seen until last year, it's maybe 50-60% North, and the rest Q and Ullman. Blu Moon sails with Ullman main and North Jib, WTF all Ullman, Kolius all Quantum, and Brun all North.

John Edwards is one of the best in the sport (in terms of sportsmanship/competitiveness/and all around great guy). Can't imagine a more deserving person for the award. Raced against him on the J/29 in Chesapeake Bay and his daughter lived in our house for a summer while finishing up school. Great folks.

BTW, tomorrow we'll have a pretty funny tour of Point Loma Outfitting's San Diego shop up here. It'll make you laugh, especially if you know us, Tom, or the shop. And Mer models some tight-ass shorts.

 

Waiting for postponed race, light and lumpy still. Anyone have a clue when the breeze will come back?

Farr 40:

 

Barking Mad splits the gate, dead even with Mascalzone Latino, though ML took the right gate and BM took the favored left gate. USA 2 next, Joe Fly just after them. Flash way in the back of the pack.

Observations on relative speed of King 40, SC37, J122, A40rc. Love to see comparisons on the new prod IRC boats!

Too much going on to figure that out just yet, but by the end of the week we should have some very good footage and a solid idea of who's who and what's fast. I'll tell you what though - seeing all those 40-ers on the line is pretty sexy.

Thanks brother - It's a hell of a nice lens. Couple of headstay wraps in that weird pre-storm breeze on the 105s. Still shifting quite a lot - back to the right at the moment.

Even worse, the bow guy led the sheets inside the forestay. He needs to gybe back over and re-run the lines, FUBAR foredeck work. I would still rather be there on that boat then here looking at it while it is snowing outside!

Ugly on a J105. Brutal and deadly on a J120! Nothing like watching a boat just keep going past the leeward mark with the kite wrapped so tight around the forestay the only way to get it down is to hoist someone to the top!

Division 2 - Melges 32, Melges 24, J/105 Reporter: Cindy Saunders

 

1334H: ARKLE had to put a man in the water to clear so it must have been wrapped pretty good.

 

M24 are starting now .... jibs out and all clear. The contrast between the dark horizon, the blue water, and the white sail will make for some great photos.

 

1332H: FINALLY ... the M32 are off and running ... all clear on the starting line but it was OH SO close. They are now heading off to the pretty side of the course. Weather mark boat is splashing at 1.7 nm at 275. RC is removing center line boat for the M24 class ... ARKLE CAN134 got hung up on their anchor line and not enough time to get in position again.

 

1319H: Good news .. that squall will go south of us

 

Division 3 - J/80, PHRF 1, PHRF 2, PHRF 3, PHRF 4

 

Reporter: Joy Dorethy

 

1333H: Getting ready to go to weather mark for an upwind finish. Clouds are everywhere but wind is holding.

 

1321H: PHRF 3: Mother Ocean and Thunderbolt. Mother Ocean moving fast for an Oday 40 rating 135.PHRF 4: Carriabean Soul and Thunderbox battling it out. Blah, blah, blah coming through strong.

 

1318H: PHRF 1: Kali got pushed over the line by XS and had to come back.

PHRF 2: Rush up front again

 

J80: lots of discussion going on out there - a lot of up, ups...

From offshorerules.com / regatta live.

 

The weather threw the teams a curve ball during race 1.With both fleets starting in 10 knots the skies clouded as they headed down wind for gthe first time. the skies opened and delivered a torrential downpour which flicked the wind hard to the right and dropped to seven knots.

 

Melges 24 results:

 

Uka Uka followed by Bailout (Vince Brun) followed by John Kolious.

 

Melges 32 results

 

Star held offf an attack from Joe Woods on Red to take the gun. Third was Argo (Jason Carrol) and fourth Carlo Alberini Calvi Networks.

 

Race team are setting up for race two but the breeze is very light now.

From M24 blog.

 

RACE 1

Awesome sailing conditions are on tap for 32 Melges 24s in beautiful Key West! Sunshine, warm temps and breeze, 8-10 mph on tap already!

 

Course 4, 1.4 miles, breeze pumping 10-12 out of the Southwest for the start.

 

The start was on time…breeze holding steady at 12 mph…

 

Inside 1 minute…

 

Alan Field, Tom Ritter, Riccardo Simoneschi, and Richard Reid nail the start on the pin end!!!

 

Very exciting weather rounding with rainy and some very luminous storm clouds looming in the background. It’s Vince Brun around in first, followed by Alan Field and Lorenzo Bressani on Uka Uka Racing… The rest of the fleet freight-trains past the offset…

 

Here comes the rain…

 

Around the top, Bressani takes the lead from Brun, Kolius still in third…

 

Uka Uka then Bailout (Brun) the John Kolious.

 

Wind is down to seven knots. It has been as high as 18. The heavy rain has eased but it is still wet.

 

 

 

With Bressani ahead of Brun, the skies are clearing for the downwind finish.

 

Uka Uka takes the win!! A Sardinia finish as it might be best described!! Miles ahead of Brun, then Kolius and Rast. Full Throttle finished fifth.

 

 

RACE2

 

 

The start of race two is approx. 6-7 minutes away, bearing 285, course 5… breeze is a cool 8-10 mph..

 

After a short postponement… New course bearing of 265…

 

Breeze has dropped off to 6 mph.

 

 

 

Race two is about to finally get underway after a pretty tremendous rain shower… The sun has returned, and has the breeze!!!

 

The second start is coming right up…

 

Or, so we thought… New course bearing of 275

 

Still waiting for the start…

 

Finally! The Melges 24s are on their way upwind, of more than an hour postponement due to really shifty and unsettled conditions.
