Plus you can run your engine for 1.5 hours during the day (some restrictions apply - Read the Notice of Event in Club Racing).

Third Rule - Refer back to rule one.

Taco Tuesdays Continue All Summer

Starting in July - Every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday throughout the rest of the summer. The races will be run as individual events instead of as part of a series. This is to give more skippers an opportunity to get out and race intermittently in this busy summer season instead of committing to all of them and then not being able to attend all. Advance registration is preferred and those skippers who sign up ahead will be guaranteed a boat. We will also be assigning boats to skippers who just show up at the dock if they are available. Boats and crew will be drawn for at the dock. $5 individual race fee for both skippers and crew. Cash is best, but POS is an available option. 

July registration is up on the Cal 20 tab. Come on out and have some fun. Stay for the tacos and be in awe of Kathy Landers creative trophies.

Beat the Heat - Long Beach Harbor Series

Saturday, July 26th

Beat the Heat Regatta NORs and Electronic Registration is available on the LBHS website. Links are provided on the PHRF Tab above.

Five Platform Fiasco

On Saturday, June 21st, Shoreline Yacht Club hosted the second annual Five Platform Fiasco.  For those of you that are not familiar with the format of this race, the skipper has a chose in which direction to sail the course - either starting east for the first mark off Huntington Beach or west for their first mark off the channel leading into Angel's Gate.  Although only three boats initially headed west, it paid off for those skippers with two first places and one second in their respective classes.

Congratulations to the winners in their respective classes:

Spin - Ron Simonson on Sleeper
Non-Spin - Marc Marois on Latitudes
Multi-Hull - Randy Reynolds on Cat Attack

Complete results can be seen under the PHRF tab.

Thanks to my Race Committee for spending a long day on the water - Mark Holmes (committee boat High Spirits), Jaleel Knox and Kathy Stovall.

Taco Tuesday

After getting blown off the water the first planned week of racing in the Taco Tuesday series, we got the first race off and into the books with good wind at the start, getting lighter as the fleet approached the upwind mark and then holding to get them all to the finish line.

Congratulations to Mike Schachter for taking the win on Kate with his crew of Jack and Ed.

Full results can be seen under the Cal 20 Fleet Tab
