The Beaver Fever 150 was held this past weekend for the 25 racers attending.
Winds were light and shifty for the practice on Friday afternoon with rain beginning the last hour.
Weigh-in and measuring was at 5PM Friday afternoon.

Saturday 10 AM start began cloudy with light winds and no rain.
The winds picked up by 11AM and gusts up to 18mph were seen throughout the day.
Heats started as 1 lap in the AM and as the wind picked up were changed to 2 laps.
Most racers stayed with their A-rigs and there was some carnage - broken booms, blown out jibs, etc.
By the afternoon, the sun was breaking through the clouds.

Sunday was bright and sunny, with no wind at 10AM delaying the start of the final day of racing.
By 11AM there was enough of a breeze to ghost around the course for 1 lap.
Towards the end of the racing the wind picked up to around 4-8 mph. for the final 2 heats.
The wind was very shifty all weekend with shifts of 90-180 quite common several times on just one leg. Racers on one part of the course would be sailing upwind with others sailing downwind all the same leg. This made for exciting and interesting racing.

Congrats to Gary Boell, who made the trip up from California, for winning this regatta.
Here are the final results:

That's great footage, Art. Super impressed with the video quality out of the tiny camera on your hat.

That's me coming into shore off the start. I had a jib-sheet get tangled, meaning I couldn't sheet in the main all the way. I figure mechanical issues cost me 2 places in the overalls.

Thanks Steve, I've updated the original post with the new Coastal Cup info.
Here's a pic of USA 4d2 enjoying some "assorted refreshments" at the Saturday night dinner.
