Flying Scot Season in Full Swing

Super super day of racing last Saturday. We shared the bay with close to 30 VX ones. Their part of the bay was most of the circle and we found a good place to set up racing windward leeward races in the area between marks C and L. Thank you to Ted and Ted for running 3 good races. Being tucked up under the mainland and racing on the easterly the conditions were very shifty with large changes on velocity. The shifts kept us all on our toes searching for the fastest route to the top. Downwind, watching over the transom and positioning for the next big puff was the name of the game. With temps in the low 70’s, winds about 8-12 and flat water the sailing conditions couldn’t have been better for the nine Scots on the bay. It was great to see Poco out again for the first time this season. Brave Heart did a nice job in training mode with a crew of 4. Tom certainly learned a lot on that trip, Serge wore out the left corner all day and took the top podium honors. Leprechaun won the first race then sailed consistently to second for the day. In the show position was Eightball. We are postponing next weeks race to take part in the Cherry Pie Regatta, Feb 14. Please change your calendar. Also note that early registration time for the Midwinter Regatta is quickly approaching. See you on the bay soon. For information on Flying Scots please contact Bob Twinem, twinem2@yahoo.com
