The down side was the number of DSQ’s, we had three, two boats Lucia and Obsession sailed the Point Beals mark to Port instead of Starboard as written in the Sailing Instructions and Dulcinea missed the Point Robinson mark on the return leg. Lessons to be learned.
I have to give a huge THANK YOU to Joe Salz for setting and retrieving the Point Beals Mark. Joe anchored his boat Rain Drop at Point Beals and stayed on station until the last boat rounded. This was done with some drama as the anchorage is not the best and Rain Drop drug her anchor a bit. Tough duty, the next beer is on me Joe.
Next race is October 4th, Command Point. I’ve ordered more of the same weather. This race is a sail up Colvos to Command Point and return. Like a double dose of Colvos and Dalco all in one day. Eight hour time limit, 0955 first warning for PHRF boats 1000 warning for Windseekers. The start and finish is off the Browns Point Lighthouse. Read the sailing instructions in the CYCT race book.
