Tired of the wet and cold??

Come on over to Arizona to dry out your boats and mix it up with the 6-8 Santana's that will be racing this season at Lake Pleasant.  We also have several boats that have new skippers and could use some spinnaker handling help.

 

Racing starts at 12:30pm Saturday and then 9:00am Sunday.  Leave your boat at the gated  mast up storage for $80/month + and she is ready to roll within minutes.  Just hank on the sails and GO. .  

 

Pleasant is fresh clean water surrounded by desert mountains.  There are 2 marinas and 3 launch sites.  The rest of the lake is in her natural state.  Food, Gas, and Showers are all available.  Park entrance is $6 + $2 for a watercraft.  Keep your boat here and the entry fee is waived. 

 

Best Regards

2018 Columbus Day Regatta

Five demanding races on Saturday in Yaquina Bay, Oregon. With gusts over 25 kts, a mast was lost, some rig damage on others. There was the occasional broach, with three different boats having to stop to get a crew member back in the boat. However, it was sunny.



Sunday was gray with the wind a much more manageable (and appreciated) 8-10 kts; so the current from the 7ft. tide shift ruled tactics. It also lead to two boats being briefly grounded trying to hug a little too close to the southern shore. As the wind died and eventually shut off, the third race was abandoned as some of us were about the set an anchor to avoid being carried back out past the breakwater.
