One Last Look

Hi Everyone,

One last look at the season standings before we go to press!

See the season >HERE<

What could be wrong?

  • You did mark boat and I didn't know you did it.
  • You did your Man Overboard drill and I didn't get it.
  • I messed up.
It's pretty much all possible.  Let me know if you see an error.

Remember - October 17th 6PM is the awards party!

Results from 10/1

We have come to the end of another great year of racing on the Miles River. That can only mean one thing - time for Awards!

If you all remember your notice of race, you will remember that the Awards party is planned for October 17th, 6 PM,  at the Miles River Yacht Club.

That's right. The date is planned and we're ready to go. More information on the festivities will follow.

So how was our last night of racing? Just Fabulous! We finally had winds from the north and the temperature was quite pleasant. We were particularly excited to see so many people dress up for the last evening of racing. It's a tradition that goes back many years and the best dressed crew wins the coveted plaid jacket.

The wind shifted about 10ยบ to the left right after we started the sequence, but at least the wind strength stayed up until the finish. Most boats made it across with some wind.  I don't think the Stars all made it back to the Club before the wind completely fell out. Not much daylight left for us to have a long course, so it was a nice quick race to end up the year.

Congratulations go out to Kimber Rosswork and crew in the A class and Alan Campbell driving Maddie (with Bob as crew) in the Star class. Great sailing! Also congrats goes out to Jeff Peavy and crew on Ful Dek for correcting WAY over everyone. Tough to beat a crew like that! Bob Foley and Charlie Barranco also had an excellent race coming in 2nd. They are going to be hard to keep in check next year.

Remember - Awards - Oct 17th 6 PM - more info to come.

No Races for 9/24

 Okay, I don't know about you, but I think it is going to get ugly out there on the river in a few hours. I could be wrong, but that is one big storm coming our way and it should hit between 6 and 7pm.

No fun at all. Of course, it would be no fun to go sit in the rain either.


Sorry folks - we're going to CANCEL the Wednesday Night Races for tonight. It's just not a good idea to go out there and tempt fate.

All kinds of fun next week. It's our last race of the year and the RC will be awarding the trophy for the best dressed crew! See you on the water!

2014 Season after 14 races

The scoring is starting to get critical. How are you doing?

See the Season after 14 races scored >HERE<

What should you check in these results? That a good question. I make mistakes all the time, so it's good to check. 

Start with your Man Overboard Drill. If you did a man overboard drill and you told me about it, you should see the first column has a "0/RDG" in it. That means you received zero points and you are set.

Next you should check out the date that you did mark boat duty. If you did mark boat with Bowie one night instead of racing, then the finish for that night should say something like "4.6/RDG". Whatever the number, that is your average race finish, so it won't hurt you in the overall scoring. If it says, "DNC", that means I didn't know you were doing mark boat.

Then you should check your finishes. Make sure I didn't mess it up. If you had a race that you didn't finish, make sure it says "DNF" so that you get scored correctly.

If you see any errors, let me know!
