Ahoy! 

Alan Wilson, skipper of Altius, secures his lead and wins this year's Hugh Schwarz HHSA Post Season Cup.  This was not a runaway and in fact, Wendell and Beck Colson sailed Silhouette to a first place finish today with just 5 seconds to spare.  The three regulars were joined today by Mike Powers sailing Artful Dodger in his first post season race.  He had a long day on the water, coming over from Falmouth for the event, but the day was made for it.  The predicted NW wind backing to WSW was indeed the case, but the weather reports leave out all the in between gyrations that come along with that simple statement.  It was course #2 in reverse so we had a chance to sample the autumn tides again. We are going to look into the dirty bottom problem in these post season races.  Maybe ban bottom cleaning post Moffett race???!!!

Consensus is its time to put away the boats and plan for next year.  For those needing more sailing, there is always a good day or two in November, so have at it.  Holmes Hole will be putting up the records for 2021 and start looking at the Data for 2022 ratings.  Stay tuned.

All the best,  Roger.

Excellent reporting Roger.
Both informative and entertaining.

Ahoy!

6 Boats for a second try at Course 7 reverse.  The autumn's west winds have called into service this challenging course, unused until this years post season racing. The screaming falling tide bashing into the sometimes strong winds raised some chop and white caps disguising the actual wind strength which wasn't that strong and which died off as the clock ticked off the finish times.  Silhouette was first to the finish line and first in corrected time.  Alan Wilson got the call from his family that his daughter gave birth to a little girl who had put off her arrival time a week or so and as he was filled in on all the information on his second grandchild, Alan lost tract of where he was on the course.  Realizing his error too late to make up the time, he chose to head for his mooring.... Happy, none the less.

The race for the Hugh Schwarz post season cup is heating up as might be expected with the unique scoring system put into place years ago by Commodore Dan Culkin, when the cup was first offered.  Each contender can potentially drop off poor showings in favor of a more recent finish and the current tabulation shows the results.  Bottom line, you still need to do well to advance your score.

Thursday is also looking good for another go around.

Roger.

Ahoy! 

5 boats came out for the HHSA triangle run, West Chop first.  It was a beat to Nun 4 and downhill all the way back.  Time to talk about dirty bottoms as clearly something is going on.  Weather continues to cooperate with our schedule with no signs of change in the near future.  Sunday is promising to be made for sailing also. Altius won and builds on his lead for the Post Season cup.  The scoring totals the best five races but it will be hard to reverse Alan's lead if he continues to dominate like he did this afternoon. 

Next race is Sunday, 1:00 PM warning.  If your boat is still in, come join us.

All the best,
Roger.

Ahoy!

6 Boats came out for a special wind which came up just for our race and shut down shortly after we returned to the Harbor.   Never much more or less than about 8 knots and just as consistent in its direction, it was enough to provide another beautiful afternoon's race.  Gloria won but I didn't hear any complaints from anyone out there as October has forgotten where it is on the calendar. Sunday's forecast is currently calling for a little more wind so those hoping for more wind this afternoon will have their day for the next race. 

Orders are coming in for the Burgees....just a reminder to make up your mind and get me the money by Oct 15th. 

Roger.

Ahoy!

7 boats for course 2 in a west wind that went South both literally and figuratively.  The ebbing tide made for many failed expectations as most everyone underestimated the current's strength  at the RG buoy and at Nun 4.  The GPS never seems right and as soon as the mark is spotted the tendency is to sail for it regardless of the off course alarms! 

 Bliss won the race by 3 seconds over second place Altius.  Those hanging out on the course long after the early finishers were rewarded with a significant drop in wind velocity and some poor results....except for Altius! 

There is some interest in putting in an order for some new Holmes Hole Burgees.  I will be taking orders with delivery date before Christmas.  Watch for my email...soon to follow with instructions about how you will need to send me money by October 15th.  I'm hoping for at least an order of 12 to get a quantity discount.

David says Trinity is finished for 2021, Mo will be back on Thursday and the weather looks like it will be summer until Thanksgiving. 

All the best, Roger.
