Today we did practice starts, first upwind beats, then DW in SNO to a leeward gate, finish upwind. Conditions: NE Wind 5-14 knots, with fairly consistent oscillations around 20-30 degrees at the most. Today the wind had a middle, and it simply went back and forth on either side of it. The race course was […]Read more "Practice Notes 10-8-2019"

In the 1,5,6 when we gave up the 1, everything was working except that the two boats that were on starboard never tacked… […]Read more "Monday Practice Notes"

Please focus on aggressive but FAIR play and seek to settle your own situations out yourselves before the start.

I won’t be able to be there till 1545. Please derig all boats. Make sure the 420 masts and booms are stacked neatly and separate from the FJ. Do NOT put 420 sails in the shed till the very last moment; also, 420 rudders/tillers must be easily accessible. FJ’s are brought out to the lot […]Read more "Boat BKD Today"
