With winds blowing 17-20kts and many crewmembers dressed in foul weather gear, Teesou and Kathy Lynn ran away with top honors. Full results and pictures are on the Racing and Galleries tabs above.
Standings for the Spring series show Teesou leading in the racing class, while Southern Cross holds the Number 1 spot for the cruising class.
There was a little drama on the race course for race 1.
Course D was a triangle and a sausage. With an excellent choice of the left side, with the tide running out, Southern Cross rounded the first mark well ahead of the racing fleet. Webejammin followed shortly and, in what would have been the reaching leg, passed Southern Cross to lead the whole fleet in the wrong direction toward the seabuoy instead of properly moored reaching mark. Runaway was the only boat that saw the mark. A brief communication and the fleet went back to round the buoy. Runaway finished first ahead of the racing while Webejammin, not paying attention to the chaos, did the sausage and was DNF for not rounding the proper mark. A lot of unhappy sailors….
First time ever in the history of the club that the cruising fleet finished ahead of the racing class. Full results are on the “Racing” tab. Photos are on the “Photo Galleries” tab.

… We will meet at 0930 ( it’s not a race this weekend ) at the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club before the shake down sail. Even if your boat is not ready to sail, come on down, join us and work on your boat. After the shake down, we will have a get together at my house around 1830 for hot dogs, etc. BYOB, . Captain Jerry will give a safety at sea briefing during the get together. Let’s get it moving. The 2012 Schedule and the registration and pay your dues forms are on our web site.
