unofficial SB off-season "beer-can" race #2
Thanks to the skippers of 7 SBs who joined the 2nd unofficial off-season "beer-can" race.
Light winds, clear skies and t-shirt weather made for an excellent day on the lake. A nice feature of unofficial off-season "beer-can" races is the relaxed atmosphere among skippers.
SB newbies (the author & friends) sometimes hand our Tx to a SB top gun to help fine-tune the newbie's rigging. And, there's nothing quite as sobering as a newbie at the helm of the top guns fastie to reveal a lack of skipper skills. How better to bring newbies along than off-season "beer-can" racing with seasoned skippers?
So, more practice is more better for more newbies with more fasties. We do have our eyes on the prize.....2013 AMYA SB O/D Nationals at Spreckels Lake during The America's Cup Race here on San Francisco Bay. Who's got it better than that?! Nobody.
Mark your calendars: off-season SB "beer-can" (informal) Race #3 is Saturday, December 9, 1-3. RSVP helps planning.
"Gentlemen, splash your boat!"
