40: Windy day on the river. I flipped twice but had decent speed. David Peck probably won the day.

Monday, November 07, 2011

39: A nice day in the Laser. Wind was out of the west-south-west at five to fifteen. There was a strong cross current. I won the first few races then a few more decent ones.

38: Tough first day back in the Laser. I flipped twice. Probably finished third for the day, at best.

(actually won for the day by just a point)

37: HPDO

It was a light and variable weekend and the first time sailing with Tyler Burd. My upwind boat speed has been poor in this condition but we did improve quite a bit and figured some things out.

30: Buzzards Bay Regatta

Three races on Friday with Jonathan and four with Colin on Saturday. No racing on Sunday due to high winds. Friday started with a drifter that most of the fleet missed because they couldn't get out to the course on time. After a long postponement we had two good races in a moderate sea-breeze. Saturday had nice wind at about 18 knots and good sized waves.

28: Hyannis Regatta
Finally sailing with Jonathan. We had a nice warm Northerly breeze on Friday and Saturday then good sea-breeze conditions on Sunday after a long on-shore postponement. There was barely a wind shift to be had all weekend so it was boat speed conditions. It's safe to say we were the second fastest boat in the fleet of 24. We finished 2nd in all ten races. Tripp and Mike managed a 1st in nine of ten races. We could get close to them if it was windy enough but they dominated in the powered up conditions. We'll try again this weekend at BBR.

25: Barnegat Breezer
Not a bad finish for us 3rd, despite some rough times. We had great weather and great breeze on both days.
Some good pictures here:

23: Newport Regatta:
We started off kind of slow, racing badly in light and fluky conditions on Saturday. On Sunday we got a bit of a sea-breeze and had good starts to move up a bit to finish second for the weekend. Trip and Mike dominated in their new boat. It's going to take some work to take a bite out of them at the next regatta.

15: We won the only race on Sunday. It was kind of windy and lots of boats flipped over. The Coast Guard showed up and forced us to go in for the day.
We won the regatta and had a great time despite the rainy weather. Chris and Sam were second and the Giuliano's were third.

Saturday, June 11, 2011

14: I counted 16 boats on the line today, not too bad. Win was out of the east, across the river and shifty. Velocity was 5-15 knots +/-. We had an OK day with a 3,3,1,1,2, so we should be at the top of the heap.

Friday, June 10, 2011

13: Colin and I went out for a short sail at Sany Point beach this afternoon. Everything ready for the weekend.

Thursday, June 09, 2011

Sailing with my brother Colin (team racing world champion) in our home town this weekend.

12: Joe Manganello Memorial
I was sailing with Emmett Smith who won the Wilson Trophy Team Race a few weeks ago.
We got off to a bad start missing the start of the first race because I was messing around with the rig. We finished last. We won the next race and a few more to end Saturday with a last, three first a fourth and a third, or something like that. The wind was about ten knots from the west going south.
Sunday our starts were terrible but we managed to win a few races. In the last race we were way ahead and sailed past the finish line thinking we were sailing another course. We finished the race in 5th and won the regatta.


Monday, May 30, 2011

Things are up in the air with Team Extreme for the Boston event right now. The team is working on getting a complete boat to race.

10: Madcatter
We got four good races in on Sunday. We didn't do so great and finished 8th.

Saturday, May 21, 2011

9. Madcatter day 1. No wind. We started one race then abandoned.

Saturday, May 14, 2011

I just confirmed that I'll be racing in the Boston leg of the Extreme Sailing Series with Team Extreme. I'll be doing bow, should be fun.

8: We had a nice weekend racing in Rehoboth last weekend. After a terrible first day we ended up second for the weekend, with a bit of luck in race 2 on Saturday that made all the difference in the end. I got some video but haven't been able to look at it yet.


Thursday, May 05, 2011

Installing some new rudder cams on the 16. We are actually sailing the boat this weekend. The last regatta Liza and I sailed together was Madcatter last year!

Sunday, May 01, 2011

6: Nice day, about 65 F with 15 knots of wind out of the south and close to a knot of current going upwind. We had 8 races. I think I won 5 of them. That's it for Laser season.

Saturday, April 23, 2011

5: We had six races in the rain today. I had some bad ones but won three. Not sure if I won the day or not. I thought I got some video but evidently the batteries in the camera were not full charged because they didn't make it to the first race.

Sunday, April 10, 2011

4: Light air today but we got seven races in. I got off to a slow start but had some good races in the end to win the day.

3) Laser Sunday
Race replays on Kattack
Had a bad first race. OCS to finish about 9th then all firsts and a second I think.
It looked like we were not going to have any wind but we got a nice ten knot breeze out of the south at about 1:00.

Sunday, March 13, 2011

2) Laser Sunday, Upwind all day
Another good day on the river 1,1,1,3,3,1. It was puffy out of the North West about 5-20 with big shifts. The current was running strong at about a knot making for long upwind legs and short runs.
The Etchells fleet had Kattack gps units on the boats all day. The race replays are on this website. We should have them on the Lasers next week.

Sunday, March 06, 2011

1) Laser Sunday
Kind of rainy today but warm and wind out of the South West at about ten knots. I had a good day and got some good video. Let's see if I can figure out how to edit it.
