Have you signed up for the Turkey Trot yet?

Come out and race in the last PHRF event of the year for Shoreline Yacht Club.  Although weather prediction is far from an exact science, it looks like we are going to miss the worst of the weather during the race.  Taking a number of weather sites into account, it looks like the worst of the rain and wind will have blown through before the start of the race and the winds will be good for the afternoon.  Not to say that you might not get another sprinkle or two during the race, but then sailors are not afraid of getting wet.

As of this writing we have 5 boats registered in the PHRF class and only one in the Non-spin class.  Cutoff for registrations is 09:00 tomorrow (Saturday, November 12th) morning.  

See you on the water

If any of you have pictures of SYC racing from 2011, please forward them to Jason.

Also, Risa will be coordinating the potluck.  If you can bring a dish, please let her know so she can make sure we have enough desserts and not too many vegetables.

Many thanks - see you on the 4th.

CAM Series Race #6 Results

We thought it was going to be a wet and wild ride, and we ended up having light shifty air and blue skies for most of the race.  We had two brave sailors from the meetup join us and they were probably a little let down when the wind died off.  Here's a shot of Whirligig, catching a puff towards the finish.  (Photo Courtesy of Lisa Anderson)

1st place - Whirligig - J32 - Jeff Landers
