Sail-World.com : End of the World report

End of the World report

'Sailing before the End of the World'    © www.pressure-drop.us

May 21’st 2011 began a day like just any other. However dire predictions of the Apocalypse rearing it’s ugly head again, brought out the curiosity. Not content to cower under the desk fearing the worst, we ventured out to have a gander. The first thing we notice was the wind was very strong with breeze at 10:00 AM already in the mid 20’s and gusting above 30. This is unusual for the location and time of year, when breezes generally peak about 1:00 PM. Maybe we were going to get blown off the face of the earth?

Had not even reached the marina exit before the 1st casualty of the Apocalypse was seen, or was it? -  © www.pressure-drop.us  


Concentration was keen in the downwind legs -  © www.pressure-drop.us  


A tumultuous ride across Candlestick Gulch is not unusual late afternoon, but the 3-4 rollers did leave some cause for concern, how massive could they get by the return trip in the afternoon? Upon approaching the Mid Bay, it was apparent the wind wasted no time in elevating their either. Catching the HDA fleet on their first down hill leg, it was apparent only the might were going to keep a kite flying this day. Maybe there are no spinnaker classes in afterlife? The waning ebb was giving way to a substantial flood and while roiled up, it could been worse. Regardless, numerous boats opted out of a second chance to do damage and only 9 boats spread about 4 classes chose to race in the second race along the City Front.

In front of the GGYC, the StFYC was hosting its first ever team races. 5 Teams (New York Yacht Club, Newport Harbor Yacht Club, Southern Yacht Club, and two teams from St. Francis Yacht Club).

'Team Racing is spectator-friendly, with races lasting about 15 minutes and team members working together to not only get around the course, but to block and control the boats of an opposing team. Long popular in College Racing and now making great strides elsewhere, Team Racing is a collaborative game, which adds to the fun.'
Anyways, there is a whole fleet of spanking new J-22’s with color coordinated sails , suited primarily for the match race program at the St.Francis.

Bearly moving, The YRA WBRA racers face some fickle winds when the wind shifted -  © www.pressure-drop.us  

Across the Bay, the WBRA were doing their thing along the southern flank of Angel Island, and in te first race, had breez a plenty. However as the day wore on the wind shifted from SW to NW, the big mountain range above Sausalito and Mill Valley did it best to block the breeze. Tried as they might, they could not muster enough wind to pull the trigger on race 2.
