Well - the season is winding down and it looks like the SailC and SailD classes on the Short Course might be sewn up by two SA sailors. I'm having a hell of a hard time catching the 1:03 in SailC.

Anyone else even coming close? Anyone running a long course?

July and August I attempted the Philadelphia 10nm course, but making headway with a 5mph breeze produced a projected course average speeds of about 2kn (controled drift with the curent). I ended up doing one or two legs of the course then motor.

September and October winds are usually 10 to 15 with gusts above 20. My first complete run of the course will be next week.

I dunno what "season" you're referring to Smack, but I sail until the water turns hard.

Although I'm alone in Sail D, I'll still be striving to break my previous time. I now have crew for the Pirate's Cove Frostbite's so this will give us some practice.

Heh-heh. At this point all you have to do is finish and you've got the Long Course comp WRAPPED UP!

I'm just glad GeorgeB has been too lazy to set up a course on SF Bay. The Easties wouldn't stand a chance.

Hey Sailingdog - why don't you go throw down a time for the multi class before everything freezes up? Surely you can make that Telstar move!
