Sail or Sink Event A Success!
Fleet 1 held their first “Sail or Sink” ocean race on May 21st. Eleven boats reached the starting line near the Balboa pier in 7-10 knots of wind. It was a perfect day of sailing and without a single Duffy or Wedding boat to deal with. The boats all started off of the Balboa Pier and sailed upwind approx 3 miles to a bell buoy. It was interesting as we rounded the bell buoy the TP52’s and others were finishing at the same bell buoy. I am sure more than a few of them thought we were lost! After racing all participants gathered for a burger bash and a few drinks. Great stories were told and everyone in attendance said it was one of their most memorable H20 sails ever. The finishing order was – 1st – Karl Pomeroy #262, 2nd – Steve Woodruff #300, 3rd Peter Haynes #201. A number of bottles of wine were handed out as trophies. Hopefully more races can follow in these perfect waters for our boats.
Let’s schedule another one when I’m in town. I’m eager to try this!
