Piana Cup overall

by Paige Brooks on 12 Dec 2012
The Piana Cup took place over the 8-9 December. By Thursday night, the first of the out of town teams were there and getting their boats set up and launched for a Friday practice race. By Saturday morning 52 boats were launched.

We worked our way up the course and handled the boat well, but our course management could have been better. At crowded mark roundings we were able to make up a lot of boats only to lose them on the upwind legs. But that's just my story. Overall, the course was shifty, the wind 8-10, the weather partly sunny. Pretty darned perfect.

Race 2 was lighter than race 1, probably 6-8 knots. Again the RC called for 1.6nm windward leg with a slight right adjustment. We tried for a port tack approach, but couldn't find a good hole to get in on the line. We were rescued by a general recall. We rolled right into a new sequence and got off a decent start. We tacked right to clear our air and worked halfway up the right side then went left. We came into the top mark on a port tack approach and were able to pick up some boats thanks to the current pushing the starboard guys away from the mark. Downwind we jibed left and saw we were near Dirk and his crew, which ultimately meant they were having a bad race. The RC shortened the course to 1.3nm, and we finished deep, but better than our first race.

Race 3 was even lighter. Off we went again on our 1.6nm mission in light shifty stuff. We got ping ponged twice by a port tack boat. Flip Wehheim and his crew won the day, with Jeff Seigal and crew close behind.

The Etchells are kept at four clubs, all virtually next door to one another, making the after race party at the BBYC darned fun. The sun set, the tree lights went on, the sailors collected and the kegs were tapped.

We didn't get any racing in on Sunday. A lot of boats were hoping to get five races in so they could drop one of Saturday's races, but it didn't happen. As soon as it looked good for racing we went out, but the wind didn't materialize.
