Re: First Race

I was up in San Pedro (Hurricane Gulch) and we had whitecaps and the wind was blowing the white off the chop.

Re: First Race

The thing about racing is that you find yourself sailing in conditions that you normally would not have chose to and at different points of sail than usual and another thing that I noticed is that racers don't like to sail...they will get consumed with speed against some other boat and pointing...just try to ease the boat on to a sweet beam reach with a racer onboard...." want to try wing and wing "... then " you can come up in the puffs"....then " ease the outhaul "....its like trying to get my boarder collie to relax when I am holding a Frisbee....cant be done....and the worst are the wanbee sail instructors

Re: First Race

Great pics, looks like lots of fun. I've only done a small bit of racing back in the 90's on a Hobie 33. What is that block on the port side, attached to the toe rail, that appears to be leading to the mast head controlling?

Re: First Race

There's a matching one on the starboard side. He referred to it in passing (during the race, to someone else) as a backstay adjuster, but I'm not sure of that. It went up the mast to around the level of the spreaders, maybe a little higher, but I don't think it went to the top of the mast. We were busy doing other things, and I didn't get to ask him about those.

This is a huge over-generalization. Anyone who can't relax on my boat after the race is done or when it's an "off" day, doesn't get invited back on board. I quit dating a guy because he was just like your border collie... well, there were other things, too

Ok, thanks Jimgo. That would have been my next question..if there was one on starboard. Fractional rig..running backstays maybe? I'll have to do some reading.

Anyway..looked like an awesome day! It's always good to come in 1st.

Re: First Race

Tempest, for what it's worth, she is a Santana 39, and I believe she was a masthead rig.

Re: First Race

FWIW, masthead or not, those are runners (check stays). Was there a person trimming them during tacks? Love the pics - Those Socal sailors have it so lucky - T-shirts and Shorts!
