Winter Series Finale / Tax Day Sail – Saturday, April 15

Since we missed so many races due to bad weather we decided to add this day as a finale to the Winter Series Races. Hope you can make it. (We’ll still have fun, guaranteed!)
From the Club where any excuse to sail is encouraged, the Santa Rosa Sailing Club will be celebrating the end of tax season by sailing in circles around Spring Lake. Will your tax bracket be your boat’s handicap? Maybe. Will the boat finishing closest to 10 minutes and 40 seconds be the winner? Maybe.
Will you have more fun than paying taxes? Absolutely!

2 pm at Spring Lake Boat Ramp

Weather once again looks questionable (rain likely) Check back Sunday noon for an update!

Spring Lake Winter Series – Sunday March 18

Two boats participated in the “what was to be a race but turned out to be a fun sail” day. Since there were just two of us, Bob and Shannon’s CL14 and Mark’s Omega 14 we decided to not set the marks and just enjoy the nice weather and light winds. Another nice day on the water. Everybody wins.

2018 BAMA Doublehanded Farallones Race Update – Friday, March 23

BAMA Fans,

Friday afternoon Final “Update” for tomorrow’s race.

Tracking:  Here’s Jibeset.net’s tracking address:    www.jibeset.net/gpsspotwho.php

There are more boats using trackers this year, so you’ll need to tick the boxes of the boats you want to see.  You can start tracking us around 08:00 Pacific Time.  But don’t be worried if things don’t work out.  It’s a complicated system from “NANCY’s” bow (where we have the tracker) to a satellite and thru the Internet to Jibeset and back thru the Internet to you. It’s been working well and I hope tomorrow’s no exception.

2018 BAMA Doublehanded Farallones Race Update – Thursday, March 22

Pat Broderick is participating in the race and is generously sharing reports about the race.
Race is scheduled for Saturday, March 24

Farallon Freaks,

Well, NOAA thinks things will be more interesting on Saturday’s BAMA Doublehanded Race!  And, SailFlow isn’t far behind.  These forecasts are for the “Lightship” – about halfway out and back.  The wind at the Island is a notch higher.   Waves, NW at 7 feet at 11/112 seconds. Certainly doable, but much more exciting than earlier forecasts.  Add in the chance of showers later on and it gets even better!
