Re: Sailing Team Ski Trip

I have only heard from a few of you so far, but I suspect more of you want to go.  Please let me know if you are planning on going skiing Sunday and if you can drive/how many you can bring, etc.

Thanks,

If you don't have ski gear wear your sailing gear, its basically the same thing.

Sailing Team Ski Trip

Sailing Team,

The spring schedule is now posted on the website, http://www.whatcomsailing.com/schedule.html.  A couple things to note: Our practices for all of spring will be Mondays and Wednesdays.  We will not be switching days halfway through to keep things simple.  We also have a couple of events we will be hosting at Lakewood: Mar 17th regatta hosted with the WWU sailing team and April 28/29 Team Race Districts. Team Race Districts will be a big event which we will want to do well, so we will need everyones help with this event.

Subject: good job team

 

Hey Team!
Great job this fall! You all did wonderfully. Seasoned sailors, good sailing and new sailors, fabulous job learning!
Sometime around late February or early March we'll have pre-spring-season meeting and start up practice again! The spring season is a slightly more serious season because it has the district competitions but it's still a ton of fun. Very nearly all the regattas in the spring are rotating team regattas like the last sail-sand point regatta, Casscadia Cup, so there's a lot of interaction with the team at regattas.
If any of you have any friends that might be interested in sailing, get them to come in the spring! We'll have a blast.
See you all in the spring!
Sail Fast and have fun,
-Robyn

Rose Bowl Regatta

Hello team,

Now that San Francisco is under our belt, we are getting ready for our next California regatta, Rose Bowl, January 7th and 8th in Long Beach, CA. Tickets are very cheap right now, so we would like to buy them ASAP. 
Details (these might be a little vague, as it is a little early for concrete details yet)

Flight: We will be flying Allegiant out of Bellingham into Los Angeles. Right now, tickets would be about $150/person. We would leave on Friday, Jan 6 and return on Monday, Jan 9.

Transportation: We will have to rent a car for this regatta. We estimate that this will be about $45/person.

Lodging: We will stay with a family in the Long Beach area.

Entry fee: Last year the regatta entry fee was $22/person and included dinner on Saturday night. There is no NOR yet for this regatta, so that entry fee may be different.

Extra cost: Sailors will need to bring money for all other meals and a t-shirt, if they'd like.

All these costs are estimated. We estimate that this regatta will cost about $260 for everything.

Please let us know by noon on Wednesday, November 9 (tomorrow) if you are interested and able to come. We will be choosing sailors and buying tickets on Wednesday afternoon. We apologize for the last minute nature of this, but we would like to get tickets as cheap as possible. 

Thank you! Please feel free to call either of us with any questions.

Heading in

No wind today so we are heading in.   Everyone had fun despite the lack of wind. 


Still waiting

For wind


Day 2

Towing out for day 2.  Sunny today, not much wind yet.

Results

6th place robyn, elsa, jack
7th place miles, ben, zoe

Out of 25. Woohoo

Last race

Last race of the day miles and ben finish 2nd, robyn and jack 5th. 

Miles and Zoe take 3rd in race 4

Miles and zoe get 3rd, robyn and jack were over early on the start so they finish deep.


Funny story

Robyn and jack were doing great, approaching the finish line in 2nd place.  Unfortunately the course was twice around.  So after a quick celebration and a talk with the oblivious coach, they were back to racing.  Ended up finishing around 10th.  Good lesson learned.

Rotation

Ben and elsa out, zoe and jack in.  Robyn and jack round weather mark in second.


Robyn and Elsa win first race

Robyn and Elsa won the first race, miles and ben finished mid fleet.  Exciting.


Starting

In sequence for first race of day


Heading out

Wind has filled slightly, race committee sending everyone out.  Starting off with robyn and elsa in bham 1 and miles and ben in bham 2.


Postponed

Currently postponed as we wait for wind to fill in.  The team enjoyed a nice ride across the bay this morning.  It was a fun way to travel to a regatta.  Winds expected to be light today.  They are planning on racing in richardson bay.

Skippers meeting


Motoring to the regatta.


Getting readying

Getting dressed before the boat ride across the bay.
