Happy 4th of July! 

      The Holmes Hole Sailing Association continued its tradition of every once in a while celebrating the 4th of July with a parade around the Vineyard Haven Harbor!   No Bands or Music, no Tanks or Guns and no Cheering crowds.  But this year there were 11 floats of every description each with celebrants representing at least 2 or 3 different states from across the country.  They were majestic, if slow, but that only because there was just not much wind.  None the less, they all finished the parade, none the worse for wear. 

     Next race is to Chappy on Sunday Morning.  It will be a pursuit start and your start time will be published tomorrow.  Watch your email box and/or check the Holmeshole.org website BLOG. 

All the best,  Roger.

    12 Holmesholers found unexpectedly sunny conditions today as the predicted thunderstorms and showers were nowhere in sight.  Not much wind either and a harbor course #1 was chosen with a beat to East Chop as a first leg.  The little wind that carried everyone there slowly petered out and the race was shortened to once around.   I was watching closely and I'm sure Tamu's engine wasn't ever turned on but I could smell his afterburner the entire trip around the Holmeshole Triangle.  Together Tamu and  Apres  finished before the wind died completely, and went home with the cups.

Next Race is 6 PM Thursday evening, the 4th of July.  What a better way to celebrate?  You'll surely have time to watch the fireworks after as there will be no dinner served at the VHYC.

Another perfect evening for a sail around the HHSA Triangle!  15 Boats enjoyed 10 knots of southern breeze as the Sun drifted towards the western horizon.  It was a half mile beat to Nun 6, East Chop, West Chop and back to Nun 6.  Avoiding the little current coming in along the East Chop shore made a difference for sure.  Not so sure that avoiding the current heading out along West Chop was worth tangling with the SSA ferries! 

Next Race is Sunday, 1:00 PM. 

Use Channel #73 to communicate with the committee boat as it has less traffic than #72. 

Next week Thursday's race is on the 4th of July.  Usual 6 PM start but there will be no dinner available afterwords at the VHYC.

All the Best,  Roger.

Whew!  5 Mile beat into 15 knot winds and foul current.  Quite a course but a perfect day for 14 sailors who made simple work of the challenge.  Hard to say if tucking inside of Middle Ground was an advantage...maybe someone else can sort it out.

Ahoy!  The fog and intermittent drizzle did not keep 11 Holmes Holers from racing this evening.  5 in division B, 6 in A.  The Wymans lost their dog in the fog or it would have been 12 total.  As has become usual, many positions were determined by just seconds including first in Division B, decided by 13 seconds.  

Next race:  Sunday, 1 PM is the B Division Warning Signal.  Race could be any of the 8 courses depending on conditions. 

All the best,  Roger.

Ahoy!   7 boats found the starting line, 3 in Division A and 4 in B, for the 2019 Tune up race.  Plenty of wind drove the heavy Sienna at hull speed while the lighter boats needed reefs to keep under control.  The start was flawless and apparently there were no breakdowns as all contenders finished in good order.  It was course #8 to the big bridge at the Edgartown/Oak Bluffs town line and back.  About 16 knots from the SW with plenty of gusts in the 20s.

Thursday evening will be the Season's opener with a 6 PM B division warning signal.   Results and supper will be available at the VHYC galley deck after the race.  All are welcome.

2019 promises to be a great season with lots of great sailing for everyone.

Yours,  Roger.
