Not sure how much Whitemore has been sailing the 24, but he could put the wood to Chris if he is on his game.

We floated around for a while after the irst race was supposed to go off and eventually sailed the first race under genoa. Breeze built during the day and most boats had jibs up by the third race.

 

Snow, Tundra, WIP, Bangor and TMC had good speed during all of the races but the courses were a bit short for a National Championship. Not many incidents out on the water.

 

The third race ended in an interesting manner. Bangor and Snow (I think) were ahead of WIP coming into the downwind finish. As they neared the leward turning mark, the 1st place boat saw a #2 on the committee boat and thought that they had another leg to complete but as it turns out that was for the next race. So both boats go genoa up and ebgin to turn the mark. Hillman gets the genoa half way up and figures it out and heads for the finish beating the other two boats.

 

As it turns out Hillman hit a makr previously in the race and took a 20% penalty.

 

 

Wip protested Packet in the third race for a tacking too close incident at the weather mark. Bangor took the 30%

It's a National Championship, and the host site for the nationals has no results up on Saturday for racing that was completed on Friday. That's lame.

I am shocked that they do not get a bigger turnout for nationals, even my class of Santana 20s had 29 boats this year and the year before had 40.

 

Where have the j24s gone?

Maybe a bit of burnout from the Worlds in Annapolis that had 80 boats. Or that irksome recession thing?

Every time they have a nationals or a North Americans in SF there are usually only 20-25 boats. It is simply too far to tow that beast. the exception would be the 1997 Nationals prior to the 97 Worlds, and maybe the 1996 North Americans at STFYC.

 

The Seattle Nationals got 30-35.

 

The 24 is not a 505 or even a Star, a bit more on when you tow cross country....the CA fleet simply isn't that big and there usual isnt that much competitor pull beyond the usual travel crowd. The recession doesnt help.

Anyone have today's results?

 

Snow had two more bullets with a total score of 15 pts for 9 races, securing the title. Wittemore had two 2nds today. We, 5208, were going good in the breeze upwind.

 

The final five were Snow, Hillman, Toole, Wittemore, Parker.

Web site could have been better, everything could have been better, but with only 20 boats and a crummy economy the event was pretty lightly funded. Local fleet wound up paying for quite a bit out of our own pockets (couldn't tell you percentages, but the fleet ponied up some real money). The money there was had to go to taking care of the people actually sailing the event, not the Imaginary Internet People.

 

This means: we bought beer instead of messing about with web sites. Then we drank the beer.

But then, CYC in Seattle gets almost that many out on Tuesday nights all summer long. 30 boats registered, at least 25 or more showing up on the line. Old, painful boats but good times.
