Morning boyz and girls...

Charleston woke up to a rather chilly morning but sunny day. Light breeze and calm seas are the order for the day. So far forecasts are for light today, 10-20 tomorrow and blowing stink Sunday. We'll see if it holds.

All boats are out to their respective courses. Clean is apparently going out with Tim Wilkes as we had some issues with boats this morning and had to swap rides.

We'll do our best to get you coverage ala KWRW. This time Clean and I swapped places. I'm on shore to provide support for the scorers on the RC boats and he's on the water reporting.

Will get more news as races start and we get info from the courses.

Stay tuned.

From the water, winds are light at about 8 out of the south. Clean on the way out to one of the Offshore Courses.

Hey Ed, aintcha supposed to be workin'?

We're out here now, on the North course, which is mostly PHRF stuff. A bunch of C & C type thingies just went round the top mark for the first race, the second class to the mark is the Tartan 10's, and we'll have mark roundings for you shortly. Mer's taking some pics, and we'll be getting them up as well.

Give us some leeway, we've got some teething issues but mostly it's sweet out here.

That would be the T-10 Pegasus (30718) followed by T-10 Velocity (407)

Sorry, guys - you know we're gonna have some issues at every regatta until we get dialled in. It's a good thing it happened today, as there ain't much breeze. I just got a report from the Farr 36, from SA'er doghouse - they took second behihnd decision (and they were relatively close - relatively), but the wind is dying offshore now. They had an unexpected NNE breeze of 8 or so that held for the first race, but now it's going away. I don't think seabreeze is going to beat it, but we'll see.


We're going over to the inshore course now to see if they're going to get a little racing in. They have been sittting around there, floating, for over 2 hours now.

Mer, HURRY UP - we've got to go get some gas babe!

The North coure was fun to watch - a bunch of PHRF classes, including a non-spin class - there are two C & C's that we saw - the white one with the big SLAM sticker on her was kicking some ass, the red one not so much...

Rhumb Punch looked to be holding pretty tight with the J/92's, but the 92S was further back than all of 'em...operator error, I hope. Luiz, what's the link to the scrolling screen?

Got to give some love to Rick Hall, the local SeaRay/Boston Whaler dealer. He took us out to the ocean course in a new Whaler 27 with twin Mercs - they're weird for 4 strokes - in-line sixes with superchargers...very sweet motors, we were cruising at 55 knots no problem. We've just switched over to a SeaPro 21 to watch the inshore boats, which sound like they're getting ready for a start. Luiz, pics, bitch!

OK... I think I have figured out... And just talked to the Ed.

This is a new forum and there were some permissions set for us to test the forum before going live. I think there are some setting in this forum that needs to be adjusted.

Ed is calling Dawg and will work on it. I'll keep posting since I can see them. And you guys should be able to get them shortly.

No further updates at this time. I'm just looking out the window and can see them racing.

Clean I think is at that course so maybe he'll post some news on them shortly.

Check out the results for the races so far - they're here: http://www.yachtscor...m?Race_Number=1

We are waiting for some douche in a grady-white to fill his tanks with apparently about ten thousand gallons - then we're off to catch the inshore guys, who are racing. Wind's clocked around to 200-210, blowing 8-10. Not sure what's going on offshore...

Alright y'all - race 1 in the Melges was a fun one - Reggie Fairchild and Ned Goss (OSA) went from 2nd to 6th to 2nd again. Bill Blank takes first. Shifty as hell though - Ned said "the last boat to round the leeward mark crossed half the fleet on the next beat."


Simon Strauss, with Jeff Madrugali on tactics - 9th....

We're here for the entire next race, and we'll have the good stuff. Much comfier in here than outside, short courses and lots of boats. Outside it was justt too spread out...

Hey CLEAN, can I get an update for USA500, Hollerbach's FU...thanks.

I'll keep an eye out. Nate never showed, and Bear was about 400 lbs. light as of last night, when he was looking for a giant gorilla.

Alright, 568 gets the great start, that's Bill Blank, 450 just behind. Simon had a good one on 592 but had to tack away and had a slow tack, with 497 right next to him. Fu (500) had a hard one and got killed, they're way off to the right now. We're headed to the top mark...

Bill Blank and Steve Kopf (with our pal and 470 olympian Michael Miller on tactics) are fighting for the lead right now, seems like more breeze here on the left but more current as well...

Gotcha, WOODY - Mer's borrowing Saltwater Cowboy's 75-300, can't get WIDE enough!


Give it back ;)

Use the POS that came with the camera

She'll have no problem panning out

that camera takes a monster image

Zoom on the PC then crop, post

(Why am I telling these things ???)

I mean borrow a 100-400mm Lens and get in tight :o :lol: :lol:



If you get to San Diego again

I'll give you a Sweet deal on a 28-200mm lens

much more what you need

(Till you are in command of your own photo boat)

I'm loading a bunch of pics right now, will take a few, but we're going to chill at the top mark so we can get the roundings and action for the other boats on the course. This wind is really fluky, down about 3 or 4 now, and the wind has gone back to due South...

1) 3145 -

7) 443 - Plan B
8) 3492 - Footloose
9) 2349 - Latte

Collision amongst three boats after that, including 3785, who might've caused it all - (Loosey Goosey) but i didn't really witness it (in case someone was asking)

melges' are back up, with a litttle shake up at the top
1) 450 - Spray, Lucas, just had a terrible hoist but they're in first,
2) Blur, Steve Kopf in second
3) Brilliant - Blank
The J/80's are mixed in here, with Outrageous in first, and with 829 and 840

Next Melges is
4) 136
5) 626 - Wireless
6) Team Gill
7) 274 Big Sky
8) 245 Riot Act
9) Fu is holding hard
10) 687 Fire Water

The rest of the J/80s are here, Angry Chameleon, then 173. Then the S2 7.9 is coming around too. It's sort of silly that the Melges are racing with these slow boats, but certainly make it more fun...

J/24 3145 is way out front again, I think that's Rossi Milev, but I could be VERy wrong - isn't J/24 Nationals this weekend?

Mer's camera battery just died. Good thing she took a hundred pictures in the last 30 minutes.

Eat me mofo - there are 21 of the little bastards, so it's fun to watch. I ain't no snob, but this 21 footer we're on ain't the best thing in the world for the offshore course. We'll get the stories later, count on it.

Melges Finishes:

1) 450 - Spray
2) 489 - Blur
3) 568 - brilliant
4) 626 Wireless
5) 136 - Creative Juice (NICE!)
6) 245 Riot Act
7) 592 - Gill
8) 687 - Fire water
9) 497 - Marshmellow
10) 274 Big sky

Fu was a couple back, sorry Nate!


Looks like maybe one more race, but it's getting late. With sunday's forecast looking like minimum 25 knots and maybe more, I think they might really try to get in three here.

The conditions really were pretty nice out there. At first, I was happy to not be racing - then we went inshore, the breeze filled in, and DAMN...

Anyways, here are some pics of the harbor course:

I just got a good report on the last J/24 start on the harbor course. It was an awesome start - the current was flooding hard, and the RC had an I-flag up. The wind picked up, and eight j/24s were over early. And as they waited for a General Recall...but wait, no general! All eight had to go back around the pin and re-start.

The melges had a huge pile-up at the top mark, same race. Current just screwing with everyone's heads - clean, no paint, but still good fun.

Report from Hike, Bitches - he's on the phone as he's bringing the jib down.


Remedy (Donovan 27), had wheels today - Rhumb Punch (with HB) needs a little more, and no more OCS's (like race 3). HB says that Remedy is going to be tough- they make no mistakes (so far) and they 've got a fast boat. He just had to go and fold some sails.
