Rainier Cup Regatta 2011 recap and results

by Kyle Eaton on 20 Apr 2011
Rainier Cup 2011 NWICSA
Rainier Cup Regatta 2011 was held in Cascade Locks Marine Park, Oregon during April 16th-17th.

Saturday:
Racing got underway shortly after 1030 in a building west wind. Cool temps and frequent rain showers made their way across the race course all day. Shifty winds from 8-16knts kept sailors on their toes and a strong current meant many OCS's hailed at the start line. Thanks to technical support from Greg Wilkinson and Dayan Paez, race committee was able to score races live on the water using only a smart phone. 6A and 6B races were sailed before racing was called for the day. One protest was filed resulting in a DSQ.

Sunday:
Sailors arrived to brisk temps, clear skies and a fresh breeze. Winds quickly built to 12-14knts with afternoon puffs in the high teens/low twenties. Sunday's breeze brought 30 degree oscillations and steep chop. 4A and 4B races were sailed before the 3pm cut-off time. Courses were modified windward-leewards.

A special thanks to all the volunteers that helped with race committee this weekend; Dave Patterson, Andrew Nelson, Chris Brown, Jess Frazier, Jay McRostie and Jack Thomas. Thanks to Steve Williams, Andrew Nelson and Chris Brown for hearing protests and to Zip 2 Water for the clean, filtered drinking water.

Congrats to the University of Washington, this year's Rainier Cup Full NWICSA website

Vendee Globe - Nandor Fa remembers some of the old days
The wind had increased and turned but not continuously. At night there was big drop in wind speed then it came back soon The wind had increased and turned, but not continuously. At night there was a big drop in wind speed, then it came back soon. I saw on the AIS that Stéphane’s speed went down to seven knots. I started worrying about him, then I met the reason too: there was a massive fog - just as if we were sailing by Ireland. I could see only 50 metres, which means one and a half waves.
