T-Minus 31 Days and Counting to AMYA Nationals - Progress Happens!


Well, things seem to be progressing apace for the AMYA I-54 and Santa Barbara regattas - Hopefully we'll make it on-time!

(Park & Rec hope to 'close out' the job by 12 August)


The coming week calls for finishing the concrete forms by Wednesday and then pouring the concrete on Thursday and Friday.

AMYA National Regatas hosted by SFMYC this year


Speaking of the AMYA Nats...

Whether or not SF Rec and Parks starts to refill the Lake on schedule, SFMYC is hosting the Infinity 54 and Santa Barbara National regattas this year. If Spreckels Lake is still down, we have received assurances from high up in Rec & Parks that we can use an excellent alternate venue, Lake Merced, about 15 minutes away to the south.

Good thing you have low tide Craig-C. That's going to be a nice seawall. pete

Looks good to me. Will you put crushed rock behind it with dirt and sod on top? That lets the water out when it rains. Weep holes too so the water can drain out through the wall.. Pete

That's up to Rec and Parks, one would hope that they would replace the cover with at least some version of a water permeable paving, but I don't know. Using a liquid permeable asphalt surface to match the rest of the walkway would also call for a 40% open space rock gravel bed underneath and I don't recall that being part of the schedule that was transmitted to The Club from Rec and Parks which called, IIRC, for compaction.

They were working on the asphalt walkway this afternoon. The worker I spoke with said that the walkway should be completed today. They still have to install the wood bumper rail on the wall, and put down a layer of clay, as a sealer in the area of the repairs.

I got the impression that the repairs should be complete in a few more days.

As of 09:59hrs this morning I was out at the Lake....

Lake Level is minus 18 inches and rising....

So that figures to be about 6 inches over 18 hours or 1/3 every inch/hour, so yes, hopefully the lake will be filled on Friday or we will be very close, close enough to sail so bring yer boat and let's start having fun! Note of caution - expect floating debris for while until some of the new branches and pine cones waterlog and sink.


Happy Turtles....
