Whine whine whine!!!
My first choice would be Lasers and AEROS together.
However.... any day racing beats a day at home and the wind on Canyon is pretty much the same everywhere.
The basins are big enough to stay away from the hills

Note the bold type Gouv. The course closest to the dam is terrible shifty especially if the top mark is in that South cove by Holiday Hotel boat ramp. The wind coming over the cliffs and dam can make it near impossible to reach the top mark.


My first choice would be Lasers and AEROS together.

Noooooo, This is my first time in the boat! I am personally not interested in starting at the same time as ten or twenty Lasers even though the handicaps are relatively close. I do not want to compete for starting line room in a chartered boat with the Laser fleet who likes (or used to) to play bumper boats and disregard the rules at the start and mark roundings.


Score us as one fleet or two. Two would mean more mugs. I don't think there will be any Aero 5's just 7's and 9's. :)


A good few of us that are chartering are members of the Texas Centerboard circuit (Lindy, Big D, Ortega and myself). It would probably throw a wrench in scoring the regatta for the TCC if we do not start with the portsmouth fleet and the Weta. I hate to dump this on you Charlie. But please do not start us with the Lasers.

Howdy from Canyon Lake!

Looking forward to seeing you again this year!

Your PRO for Wurstfest needs feedback on preferred courses, length of races, fleeting.  You know the routine.

Please be aware that Wetas this year may race WF I with TCB or WF II with the multihulls - or both if you wish.

Stupid question: are all of the various Aeros to be scored as one-design?

Thank you,


Hello Charlie,

     Not sure if I represent the consensus or not. My thoughts are that a Gold cup or Olympic course with a good long reach legs about 45 minutes to a hour in length would be optimal. Start us all together so the sailors that are competing in the TCC will be able to figure standings TCC wise.  If you can keep us out to the right of the club in the main lake towards Jacobs creek that would be great.

If you're going to race Portsmouth Dinghy at Wurstfest, what kind of racing do you want?  The PRO has asked for some input to help ensure you have fun.    


1. Preferred course (w-l, triangle, mix, gates, offsets, etc.). 

2. Length of course (time or distance).

3. Suggested start sequence by fleet.  Shared start?




Keep us out to the right, that area by/past Jacobs creek is good. I'd race the Aero's in with the Portsmouth So we can figure out the TCC'ers. Gold cup courses 45 minutes or so in length. That's my two cents.
