The Harry Adderly regatta brought in a nice mix of sailboats to the event this year under 27°C and beautiful partly cloudy skies with a NW wind blowing at 20 km/h increasing at times to 41 Km/h down river.
Starting with a self timed start and finish between the KSC dock and buoy mark, from 11:15h – 11:50h, 7 sailboats set up river to round Allen Island (12 mile Island). Challenging wind conditions brought back the Wave after 2 hours and the rest found their way back from 4.25 hours to 5.5 hours.
The Portsmouth Yardstick Handicap scores were used to adjust the times and even out the results. The results will be entered in the Harry Adderly 12 Mile Island Challenge that is managed this year by Frank Boyaner .
Thanks to all the participants for coming out and challenging your fellow sailors and sharing in a celebratory “cold one” after the race.
We saw a great turnout for the first race night of 2019 with a total of 10 boats signed out. There was a mild but steady breeze until race 4 when the doldrums hit. Here are the results and the picture!
Wednesday evenings in July and August and start the season on this Wednesday July 3, at 630 start time.
We now have all the lasers on the beach, 2 bytes, 3 albacores and a Hobie 18 and a Hobie 16. The tasar will head down to the beach this week. Best to arrive an hour early to rig your sailboat. If conditions change we will amend this as necessary. The sailing director will bring food and bevvies. 2$ each.
