Ahoy!

    4 boats did the Triangle in about 12 knots of NE wind.  Tamu won with 9 seconds to spare over Bliss.  All four places corrected to within 27 seconds.   Apparently very twitch of the tiller counts!  

     High winds are predicted for Sunday.  Mo will keep us appraised  of conditions and possibility of race or not.

   5 boats came out expecting small craft advisories and 20MPH winds with gusts to 30 but were presently surprised with 12-14 knots, smooth waters and a "just plain fun" course.  #7 with ebbing fall tides made for a quick race with boats correcting to close finishes again.  First four positions within 2 minutes in a 9.4 mile race.  Tristan Lodge, sailing the Swan 42, BIA, with his new rating (Having completed 5 races during the season) won the race with 18 seconds to spare. 

  Watch for updates about Thursday as the forecast is highly favorable for a pleasant 4:00 PM race.  Be sure Mo has your Text number so you can get the latest.  Mo's :  551-358-1449....ALL WELCOME!  

All the best,  Roger.

Ahoy!

  The first race of the post season was held today on a sunny afternoon with 10 knots wind.  It was the reverse triangle with a beat from East Chop to West. Dominic Maxwell joined us for the first time with his Morris 36, Liberty. Missed a mark, I'm told and still working to figure out the HHSA thing. He'll have another chance on Sunday, at 1:00 PM Warning.  Altius wins it.  I'll let the times speak for themselves.

Sorry I missed it.  We have promises for more coming on Sunday. 

Roger.

Post Season Racing begins this afternoon: 4 PM Warning.

Ahoy!

    The first 2022 post season race will be this afternoon with a 4 PM Warning signal at Nun 4.

This is one hour earlier than our usual time.

Self start on GPS time, Signals may or may not be made.  Start is 4:05.  Finish within 50' of Nun 4, between VHYC and the Nun.  Report your time of finish

Please advise us of your intentions via text to 551-358-1449.  You will be added to a group text and advised of course, cancellations etc in that manner.  Please report your time of finish in a timely manner so scoring can take place before bedtime. 

All are welcome to join us....H-12s, gaff riggers etc.

All the best,  Roger  (774-310-0023)

10 Boats, surrounded by another 22 H-12s, raced Course #2 in reverse with the windward starting leg.  The challenging WSW wind, gyrating between SW and West, was tricky everywhere along the course.  In the Harbor the lay line for Nun 6 moved around and the transition from the sound's West wind to the harbor's South breeze made the decision about which breeze was where and thus when to tack a key event for each racer.   Escape won the race and Tamu's 3rd place put those two boats into the Season's money behind Penelope who sealed her first place and Jewett Cup win for 2022.  Mo's consistent strong performance (until today) and perfect attendance set Penelope up as the boat to beat all season long.  Everyone reported their own time, but a computer glitch caused a lag and thus the late report. 

Commodore Tom Wescott writes: 

We are looking to once again take up a voluntary collection to reward and compensate the crew from the VHYC running our races this season.  Please consider a contribution of $100 or whatever you wish to make.  Contributions for this HHSA gratuity can be made either of two ways:

1.  Mail a check (payable to Holmes Hole Sailing Association) to:  

                                VHYC  (Attn:  HHSA Gratuity)
                                 PO Box 507
                                 Vineyard Haven, MA. 02568

2.  Drop off your contribution at the VHYC (please write HHSA gratuity on your envelope).  

VHYC will hold all funds received in a special Gratuity envelope.  HHSA will deposit all checks and pay the amount received as a gratuity to the crew after this year's Moffet event.

Thank you so much!

Tom


Pot Luck Awards Dinner with be at the Stout's this coming Wednesday evening at 6:00 PM.  Hope to see there.  We will talk about post season racing and share ideas about how to make HHSA racing even better.

Ahoy!

10 boats raced around the triangle this evening in about 10 knots of wind that came and went, shifting west to northwest with some southerly elements to throw you off.  The foul current for the Nun 4 to Can 23a leg allowed some in the back to catch up and without a decent beat from East Chop to the finish as the wind went NW it was no problem for Sandpiper to win  by 12 minutes on corrected time!  The rest of the fleet corrected out to within 8 and a half minutes...in fact, we had a tie to the second for 8th place.  Positions 4, 5 and 6th were decided within 15 seconds.
The snack bar at the VHYC has become a popular spot on Thursday Evenings, overloading the remaining staff of the club.  No one minded as the weather was delightful, the view of the outer harbor magnificent and conversation stimulating. 

Sunday with be the final 2022 season's race.  The H-12 fleet is hosting an island wide regatta to follow our 1:05 start.  It is expected to draw a crowd of H-12s from Edgartown and Menemsha to join the HHSA's H-12 fleet.   The committee boat will be busy with their multiple races so HHSA big boat skippers are asked to take their own finish times and report them to me as text to 774-310-0023 or email:  RGBecker@Yahoo.com.  You are to finish within 50'  of NUN 6 and mark your GPS time at finish as you pass between the Nun and the Yacht Club. 

Still time to register for the Moffett Race.  There are numerous new boats of diverse design joining us this year, so don't miss it.  It's a handicapper's nightmare but you can be sure there will be only one winner...unless there is a tie. 

Sailing Instructions have been posted:  https://www.regattanetwork.com/event/24042#_home

Pot Luck awards dinner is at the Stout's on Wednesday, Sept. 7th, 6:00PM start.  We'll discuss post season racing at the meeting.

All the Best,   Roger.
