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.
