Winter Series SFMYC

Satuday .November 18 brought six boats out for our first I 54 winter series race. Light wind and large holes predominated sailing conditions.
Mel Aguilar came and sailed my second boat. He got some good starts and learned a lot. Dave Gormley raced 87 with his new Sirius Sails and struggled in the light wind. Although in race seven he managed a third with some very smart sailing. Jason Spiller had a pretty good day managing to show amazing speed and seemed to be in sync with the wind a lot. Even though he did poorly in two races, that was not typical of his excellent sailing. Jim Harrold continues to show his improving skills by taking a first and three seconds thru eight races. Rob Weaver and Mel seemed to struggle most of the day in the light wind. Somehow yours truly managed to win four races and post two seconds. Not sure how I did that considering that I think I only sailed so so with some lapses in concentration at key points like hitting a mark and going on the wrong side of a mark in one race. Anyways, it was a good day for the fleet and I am happy to see the group sail together again. Ryan Schofield

New AMYA I-54 Class Secretary Pro Tempore

Per the note that Ryan Schofield posted a few days ago regarding the passing of our class secretary, Jim Hensel, this left the class without any representation at the AMYA level. The Infinity class, while small, needs a voice within the AMYA structure.

Recognizing the importance of this, Ryan was nominated and seconded by several of us to be the interim class secretary in communications to AMYA President, Ray Seta. Ryan accepted the nomination and then Ray appointed Ryan the Infinity-54 Interim Class Secretary, subject to the approval of the full AMYA Executive Board in January (a formality really).

Ryan will hold the position until the next election cycle for the class, which is in the fall of next year. Should he run and be elected at that time, he would serve a two year term. This is the same process that I recently went through when Jim Linville transfered the US1M class secretary position to me in April and I stood for election in November. (The US1M elections are in odd numbered years, while the Infinity-54 elections are in even numbered years)

As both a member of the Infinity class and as a class secretary, I would like to formally thank Ryan for taking on this responsibility, particularly on such short notice and without any help in the transfer of the office from the former secretary. I know that Ryan will continue his tireless efforts to promote the class.

Congratulations, Ryan.

Working on my third I 54 that I acquired a few years ago from a fellow in the midwest. Finally got the keel fitted to the hull today. Next up the radio board with all new servos. I gotta decide on what kind of stand to make for the boat as well. I'll take some pictures soon and post. Ryan

The NOR will be posted to the SFMYC site for the NCR in the next week.
I want to welcome Bob Eger of the SMYC as the newest I 54 owner, he bought hull #101.

The second boat that was brought west from New England, #100, will be delivered to its new owner this weekend, another skipper in the Sacramento MYC.

That’s two more boats in the Sac fleet!!

I have been a bit slow bringing the report for the January I 54 winter series race. Six skippers attended the event including one from the Sacramento Fleet. Light winds were the rule of the day although there were some nice puffs at times. Four different boats managed to snag first place finishes and many races were very close. Rob and Jim Harold sailed very well for the most part of the day. Dave Gormley did well and took his first bullet of the serie in race three. A good day for sailing at Spreckles was had by all. Thanks to Rob W., Jim Harrold, Steve Ma, Steve Bechtold, and Dave Gormley for coming out and mixing it up. Results are as follows:
Ryan S. 10 points 1st, Jim Harrold 13 points 2nd, Rob Weaver 14 points 3rd, Dave Gormley 23 points 4th, Steve Bechtold 24 points 5th, Steve Ma 32 points.
