In Topic: Long Beach Race Week Day 1 Wx- GALE WARNING but...

30 June 2014 - 07:17 PM

We were down at Seal Beach pier yesterday and it has been a very long time since I have seen that many boats sailing off or Long Beach/ Seal Beach.  The success of this year's event was evident from the shore as well.  Friday the wind should have clocked to more than 195 but not on Saturday or Sunday. Glad you had fun. What's next for you and your team?

 

Seeking adventure and salty pirates on Sunday, eh?  It seems like every major race I've been in the wind has been light and variable, so I'd like to do one of the around the island races or something when there's a decent breeze to get some reefing and heavy seas practice.

 

Thanks for the weather report.  I need to send ya a msg soon about getting some shirts made.

No gales but a good day of racing, but $9.50 for a mt. gay & diet coke at ABYC was a bit much, for that price you should get a hat with it.

 

It should have been 11 from 155 becoming 9 from 230-250. Then 11-14 from 260-280....Sound right?

Wind never shifted much above 195, we probably saw 14 knots occasionally, was mostly light 6-10 kts.  Lots of reaching, but it was still fun and they had a great turn out... 165 boats or so... going for 200 next year.

 

Despite the high drink prices it's a great event, great to see so many boats on the water.
