Revised September 6, 2020

 

Race Report - NBIBCLRA 2020 Labor Day Regatta from Bud Rogers  - The wind gods provided a WSW wind that faked to the right and finally shifted to the SW, all while building from 8kts to 12kts for the finale.  Our PRO Marty Knab set a Long Course that occupied a good portion of Noyac Bay and offered a combination of WL and triangle courses.  Twenty-one boats came to the line, including travellers from NYC and NJ.  Special thanks to our RC crew:  Marty, Mary Ann, Alex (who provided a crash boat) and Liz; and also to our scorer Izzy (who provided results before we finished de-rigging).  Thanks also to Breakwater Yacht Club for providing its RC boat for the event.

Here are your results--5 races, no throwout.  Congratulations to everyone who sailed.  Be sure to wear your NBIBCLRA swag with pride!!

Weekend Practice Racing at Oakliff!

Contact Patrick at Oakcliff Sailing 516 802-0368 for more info and to reserve a spot for the summer.

This came courtesy of Frank - if your interested in visiting any District 9 events, here's the schedule
Dear All,
 
I hope you are staying safe and healthy!
 
We have been working through the winter months to set the regatta plan for 2020.  Below is the latest and what I submitted to ILCA a couple of weeks ago.  Unfortunately, with the pandemic situation we will have to consider at the least, the early season regattas as subject to change.
 
The 2020 plan includes a major event: the Great Lakes Championship which will be held at the Rochester YC on Sept 12-13. 
 
The D9 Grand Prix will be held at Willow Bank YC as a one-day on August 22. 
 
Thanks to everyone involved in planning and hosting in 2020.  I will keep you posted of any cancellations or changes.
 
All the best to you, your families and friends.  Hope to have this blasted virus in the rear view mirror, and see you on the water soon!
 
Peter

Winter Sailing at Seawanhaka!  Excerpts from the full sailing season 2019-20. An uncharacteristically mild winter, most days saw about 10 knots of breeze but we had both very windy and very light days as well. My apologies to John - at about 10:30 in the video he got separated from his capsized boat, but while the camera picked it up, my eyes were in the other direction - otherwise, I would have stopped! It didn't help that another boat snagged his rudder, but he wasn't as far from his boat as it looks - my camera has a wide-angle lens. All in all a great season, though cut short. Unfortunately, the last 2 races and our awards dinner had to be cancelled to the COVID 19 virus. Everybody stay well for next year!

Unfortunately, cancelled to the COVID-19 virus.  Everybody stay well!

 


A note from Bob - Over the years, every now and then, I get a note from someone asking how to join a race. The short answer - just show up! We'll get you signed in at the site. We don't need advance notice, and we don't hold anyone responsible if they can't make it at the last minute (flashback to a previous years' Southampton YC Regatta, when the alternator on my tow vehicle failed halfway there!) There may be an Invitational or some other event that requires qualifying, check the Schedule, but the vast majority of our events have no pre-registration. Anyhow, just bring your boat to the next regatta that looks good to you and you're in!
