Notes

 

I set Jamie and myself up with phones running the RaceQs tracking app. You can check the tracks out below and see what Jamie did right to win the regatta. He is listed as Prsa on the tracks. You might need to go to the regatta tab (two crossed flags) and change the start time to get all of the available tracking information.

2015 Capital City Regatta Results

cap-city-laser-regatta-3_30_15-3290163
The 2015 Capital City Regatta turned out to be a fitting capstone for a crazy Laser Frostbite season. Our elder statesmen tell me that there have been seasons with more ice and wind cancellations, but that goes back a ways.

For Day One of the Capital City Regatta we simply had too much gusty wind. Several of us had tried racing in similar conditions the previous week, but there really isn�t much you can do in 30 knots with a Laser. The RC wisely raised a virtual November flag and we adjourned until Sunday.

Day Two presented a new obstacle; the overnight NW winds had emptied the water from our playground. What to do? Our fearless PRO, Chris Bolton, was not to be discouraged. He simply set a triangle-ish course in the cove and started racing. The winds oscillated from the West between 180 and 000 all day and often it blew opposite directions between one end of the cove and the other. It was funny to see Chris start the timer when a gust was coming down from Four Mile Run and then celebrate when it arrived at 90 degrees to the starting line. There was a lot of disbelief laughter on Sunday.

What did we learn from this exercise? Primarily that it�s better to be lucky than good – although there were some basics that came into play. Getting off the line with speed was important, but getting to the top mark first didn�t buy you much on Sunday – just ask Jamie. Staying aware of the wind was important, using all available resource, e.g., water, flags, boats, to detect the next puff. Positioning at the roundings was important; especially the leeward-ish marks where we saw some awesome pinwheels. Ultimately, just keep pressing to the end, it was common for places to change on the last 200 yard beat to the finish.

Finally, a standing ovation to everyone who sailed this 2014-2015 season, and congratulations to the Eric Peterson for winning the series. Our final number of participants was somewhere north of 43 people and the atmosphere and quality of sailing has never been better.

See you on the line,

� Len Guenther

Capital City Regatta Day 2

The snow fell early morning leaving a nice day on the river. The wind started out of the north-northeast and clocked to the north-northwest. The wind varied from 3 mph to about 12 mph. The RC setup a windward-leeward course and ran four races.

James Jacobs sealed the regatta with two firsts in the last four races. Steve Yelland and Robert Bennett finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. Awards were given to the mid-fleet finishers Jacob Donkersloot and Scott Snyder.

Thanks for great RC work to Jeff Storck PRO, Steve Parsons, Barney Harris, Rory, Charlie Krafft and Lee Mullins.
