ABYC Memorial Day Regatta - Day 1

'Cy Thompson of St. Thomas YC in US Virgin Islands (l.) passes ABYC's Chris Raab - ABYC Memorial Day Regatta 2014'    Rich Roberts

Some said that Alamitos Bay Yacht Club's annual Memorial Day Regatta this weekend looked like a preview of the Laser class North American Championships coming up June 12-15.

Pray that didn't mean the weather conditions.

There were more Lasers (26) and Laser Radials (29) entered than all of the other classes combined, all struggling around the outside and inside race courses in uncustomary gasps of air from 1.5 to 4.5 knots from the south and southwest. It didn't stop the racing, but it made for a long afternoon.

Erik Bowers, a Laser sailor from Minnetonka, Minn., who leads his fleet with a first, fourth and third after three of seven scheduled races, said that after he won the first race 'I looked at my watch. I finished in 68 minutes … the longest race I've done in awhile.'

But he wasn't complaining that the race---twice around a windward-leeward course for a total distance of more than three miles---wasn't declared finished after only one of two laps.

'It was perfect for me,' Bowers said. 'Chris Barnard was leading and I passed him on the second downwind leg.'

That led to first place, followed by a fourth and a third for eight points---two ahead of ABYC's versatile veteran, Chris Raab (six - three - one, ten), and a three-way tie at 12 among Barnard, Richard Didham of San Diego YC and Andrew Lewis of the Trinidad and Tabago Sailing Association.

Bowers, 24, is the third-ranking Laser sailor with the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider Olympic program, behind Charlie Buckingham, who isn't competing, and Barnard---all training to represent the U.S. at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2016.

At six - three and 180 pounds, he is taller than most rivals but notes, 'I get a lot of leverage.'

He also has heard the reports about Rio's unsavory sailing conditions, which would make even Long Beach's atypical Saturday absence of decent breeze seem like paradise.

'I was there in January,' he said. 'Some of the ranting on it is hyperbole. The water is dirty, but if you don't get soaked and you don't have any sore spots that might get infected you'd probably be OK. It doesn't smell good, but when it's time to race no one is going to boycott it.'

Kiteboards were scheduled to race only on Saturday but never got airborne.

The event is the first of ABYC's traditional holiday regattas for small boats from San Diego to San Francisco and beyond, to be followed by the Fourth of July Regatta in early summer, preceding the Labor Day Regatta in September and Turkey Day for Thanksgiving in November.

Racing is scheduled to start at noon Sunday, conditions permitting. The larger classes are racing outside in Long Beach Harbor; the dinghies are racing inside on Alamitos Bay.
