Ahoy! 

     An informal, for fun, pre-season once around attracted 5 starters and a couple of hangers on.  10 knots from west north west and flooding currents made for a long beat from east chop to west.  Blue was key word for the weather: Sky and water. 

     Three of the five were new boats and/or skippers and have been assigned ratings which by HHSA definition are somewhat arbitrary.  As has been done in recent past years, ratings will be adjusted after 5 in-season races and again after 10 completed races.  If any racer for any reason wants a less favorable rating during  this first 5 race trial period I'll be happy to make one change based on that racer's request. Just a reminder,  most regular racers are carrying a record of three years and some more than 40 races.  Their ratings reflect those records.  In order to provide for a competitive fun season for all comers, a rating that reflects actual performance rather than guesses by "experts",  has always been the Holmes Hole way. 

     Watch for announcements concerning more informal, for fun, pre-season "races". 


     Roger.

HHSA Announces 2020 Season!

AHOY!

    The Holmes Hole Sailing Association is announcing its 2020 Summer season.  In this time of much uncertainty the Board of Governors has decided to forge ahead with plans for another great year of sailing. 

We are hoping to race all summer long as in the past and will work around, over or through any obstruction, barrier or shoal to continue the HHSA traditions.  Social distancing is encouraged, on and off the water, and that may change the way we gather after the fun on the water.  Plans at the VHYC have not been finalized so changes in how we conduct the racing and use of the club may also be different than years past.  The Martha's Vineyard Shipyard has indicated its services will be available this week and fully functioning after the "Stay at Home" directive is lifted, May 4th.  As always, the HHSA is concerned for its member's safety on and off the water and will adhere to all health and safety guidelines.

     The Holmeshole.org website is updated and the 2020 schedule is available for download if desired.  The 2020 circular is online and will govern the racing as in the past.  Preseason racing, if enough boats are ready to go, will begin on Memorial Day Weekend.  Notices will be emailed and preseason racing will be organized by our Commodore, Mo Flam.  The traditional Tune-up race will start June 21st at 1:00 PM at Nun 6.  The first evening race will be the following Thursday, June 25th, 6:00 PM.  The season will include 22 scheduled races.

     Please advise us of your intentions as soon as they are determined and go to the Website to pay your dues and renew your membership.  Alternatively, a check to Wendell would work or most directly, use this link:  https://www.regattanetwork.com/membermgmt/HHSA/membership_registration_start.php

     I'm personally looking forward to seeing everyone again and spending as much time as possible on the water this summer. 

 

    Wishing you the best of health,     

          Roger.

Ahoy!  14 boats for the final race of the 2019 Season.  Light air again for a course #1, twice around the HHSA triangle.  The currents at Nun 4 and Can 23a were anybody's guess though Phil Hale had some inside dope apparently.  The length of the race plus the repeat of the marks allowed some to catch up if they paid any attention at all.  I think it is time to rewrite the explanation of the currents at the chops or at least revisit the gospel as we received it from past generations.  Congrats to Tango and Penelope, today's winners.  Tyche or Guest Sonar:  Did you finish?  I'll add your times if you have them. 

Wednesday evening, starting at 6 PM , will be the annual meeting and awards presentation at the Stouts house, 265 Main Street.  RSVP if you haven't yet.

Hi - if it's not too late, would you remind everyone about Wednesday? Maybe mention that the best way is to come in at 265 Main St. We will provide soft drinks and chowder. Some , but not a lot, of parking on the way in.

Ahoy!   14 boats started the windward beat to Nun 6 and continued in extremely light winds around course "0".  A couple didn't finish but the others looked great as they lined up from East Chop up to the finish as the setting sun let us know we were a long time getting around the triangle.  The wind started from West of Southwest but switched to East as the fleet  made their way from West Chop to East Chop.  All veterans of many HHSA races, the skippers adapted as necessary and carried on as if nothing was amiss. 

Congrats to Escape and Heimkehr, tonight's winners.  Hats off to Mike Powers from Falmouth, making the trip with Artful Dodger even with the doubtful winds.  He finished in second place, less than a minute behind the winner of Division A. 

Last race of the Season is Sunday, 1:00 PM warning signal.

   Ahoy! 

    More wind than Boats this time as 7 Holmesholers showed up for a cancelled Tarpaulin Cove race and attempted a course 1 in reverse.  The seas, after a day of NE winds had become substantial enough to toss the fleet around so that some had to abandon plans to make the Can 23 at East Chop.  The committee boat could see the writing on the wall after just one time around and mercifully shortened the event before more damage was done.  Just three finished, all in B Division.

I've included the current season's standings.  You'll have to do the calculating for the Sunday series and Thursday series standings if you want a peek at those as I need to take a break and wash out my salt soaked pants. 

Next race Thursday, 5:30 PM Warning signal.  Next Sunday is the last hurrah then dinner at the Stout's on Wednesday evening.  Please advise your friends with boats within a reasonable distance that the 2019 Moffett Cup is up for grabs and could be won by any entry no matter how slow or fast....or as Einstein put it so eloquently in explaining the relative nature of speed: It's all about the "space-timeshare condominium."  

All the best,  Roger.

HHSA Change of Plan Harbor Race 11AM Warning if Conditions Permit-Sunday August 25





Ahoy!

After much deliberation and consultation we are changing tomorrows race to our fallback, a Harbor race with an 11AM first warning for the B division, instead of the Tarp Rendezvous.

The forecast is for a strong NE wind, small craft warnings have been posted. We didn't want to send everyone out into the sound in bad conditions followed by a long beat back against the current, so we will have the Harbor Race, courses 0-3 are possible if the conditions allow it. As always it is the responsibility of the skippers and their crew to determine if they should sail and for the safety of their boat.  

Please stay safe!
