Navigator Challange - 18 November 2012

And next Sunday - the Navigator Challenge!!



A challenging navigation course, if the past and Areominded's past diabolical courses are any indicator - should be a lot of fun!!
The devil is in the details - as you might surmise from the poster . Skippers! You haz been warned.
See you there

off-season SB "beer-can" race #2 will follow the Nov 10 membership meeting and swap-meet with the first race starting at 1pm. There are 6 races planned. We're looking for the 6th, 7th, 8th+ SB to join us. Remember: "beer-can" (pick-up) off-season racing is un-official, no fees, forms, food or prizes...just SBs putting the rail down during the off-season.

In-house AND out-house (sic) SB's are welcome. Splash your boat...Let's get it on.

Spreckels Lake, GG Park, San Francisco, 1pm-3pm Saturday, November 10th CU there!

Update: We have 7 SBODs committed to "beer-can" race #2 Saturday (after the membership meeting/after the swap-meet) with racing from 1-3.

Given that the normal Club (business) Meeting does not usually break up until about noon and the Club's Board Meeting doesn't even start until at least 09:30 - the swap meet will probably get underway sometime after 12:30 or 1pm given the time necessary to clear the chairs and everything from the meeting and setup the tables.

Craig, as you saw, I worked around the conflicting scheduling. Waiting to set up and run the swap meet until after the general meeting, and after some sort of break for lunch while the sailboat guys are prepping their boats for a 1:00 PM race, is simply not practical. The silent auction made it possible for people to bid on items without disturbing the meetings, and for the swap meet to end in time for the race prep. Unless the powers that be stop me, I'm going to schedule next year's swap meet exactly the same way. Just FYI.

Rob,
It worked perfect-three hits and no outs. (:
Two meetings, Swap-meet +unofficial off-season SB "beer-can" race #2! That was my first SFMYC Swap-Meet and it was great. Nice planning. Nice "stuff" on tables. Good prices. Next time I'll bring more "lunch money" for eye-candy. Bring it on!

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!"
