Taco Tuesday Results

The race was almost cancelled due to lack of wind, but four boats toughed it out for the second to last Taco Tuesday Cal 20 race of the season.  With less than a quarter of a mile to finish, the entire fleet pretty much reversed itself.   Congrats to Bob Moberg who took first place!

There will be no Taco Tuesday race next week (the Tuesday following Labor Day), the final race is scheduled for Tuesday 9/11.  Don't miss it!

Results and Series Standings are available in the One Design Tab!

Franklin D. Ross Memorial Platform to Queen Mary Race

On Saturday, August 11th, Shoreline hosted the Franklin D. Ross Memorial Platform to Queen Mary Race for singlehanded and doublehanded sailors.  For the people on the race committee and the rest of the population, it was a beautiful day but the competitors would have hoped for a bit more wind.

Nineteen (19) boats registered and seventeen (17) made the start line - the other two being sidelined by some of the normal mechanical issues that can plaque boats.  The light winds claimed five more competitors from the non-spinnaker fleet leaving twelve boats to finish the race.

Congratulations to the following winners in their respective classes:

SInglehanded Spinnaker:
First - Rod Percival on Rubicon III
Second - Heinz Butner on Raptor

Doublehanded Spinnaker:
First - Taylor Grant on eXigent
Second - Mark Spector on Jokers Wild

Doublehanded Non-spinnaker:
First - Henry Dokonal on Grace
Second - Jeff Landers on Whirligig
Third - John Pettit on Challenge

To honor Frank Ross, a long time member and singlehanded racer, the Pacific Singlehanded Sailors Association (PSSA) created a perpetual trophy in Frank's name for the overall winner.  Congratulations to Taylor Grant on eXigent for taking this honor with an elapsed time of 5 hours, 6 minutes and 6 seconds giving him a corrected time of 4 hours, 41 minutes and 15 seconds.

Complete results are under the PHRF Race tab.

Final thanks to the race committee of Steve Falberg, Steve Cooper, Dee Ross, John Sears and Mark Holmes
