Calling all photos!

I know there are lots of budding photographers out there with us on the water each night. Do you have some photos of Wednesday Night Racing that you would like to share?

If you burn them on a CD and give them to me, I'll post them for you.

If you want to try posting them yourself, shoot me an email. I'll give you the instructions!

2014 after 8 races

Well, we have 8 races completed so far. Let's make sure we're scoring this correctly.

>HERE< is the season so far.

What could I have messed up?

Well, your place. Did I get your finish correct for each race? I double-check, but sometimes I can miss a boat in the transcribing.

How about when you did mark boat. If you did mark boat on a particular night (and I knew you were doing it), I marked you down as "AVG/?.?" for the night. The actual score will change over the season to remain your average score. Glad the software does this one for me!

Did you do your Man Overboard drill? It can be hard for us to hear what you are yelling at us on the course. You can always send me an email to tell me when you did your man overboard drill. You will notice that you get a DNC until you report doing your man overboard drill. Once reported to me, it goes to zero points.

Do those Man Overboard drills and let me know when they are done. This is so important for your crew's safety and your score!

There are some other weird scoring things you might see. For one, we don't really know who will register for the season until we know who has 4 races or more. You might see some competitors with 1 or 2 races who will disappear once we know for sure that they are not registering. It all works out in the long run.

Have fun over the 4th!

SMURF Results from 7/2

No change in the A class (congrats again to Javelin), but lots of moves in the B class!

Congratulations to Jeep Jallade and the crew of Moonraker for a great finish! They had a very fast night and finished more than 1:40 ahead of everyone.

Results from 7/2

Storms to the north of us - storms to the south...

But fortunately there was plenty of good wind and fun sailing in St Michaels last night. The good old trusty weather radar kept us up-to-date with the storms, so we were able to sail. We were able to follow the storms all night.

Strong winds made for lots of fun planing out there last night. Congratulations to David and Jeff Cox in the Star Mischief for a win last night as well as Tom Gore and the crew of Javelin, and Jeff Pevey and the crew of Ful Dek.

SMURF Results from 6/25

Lots of fun in the SMURF ratings last night! Congratulations to Claiborne Ferry who had an excellent night last night just leaving the A class in the dust and Pagan who equally tromped on the B class.

It was a great night for the bigger boats who could throw up lots of sail area. It will be interesting to see what happens when the summer winds die out and we have shorter courses. Maneuverability will become king.

Results from 6/25

It was a little on the hot side last night and we were a little short-handed on the committee boat, but there was plenty of wind for a nice race out there! The PHRF boats were able to get in a nice 6.24 mile race with a nice spinnaker run down the course. A little shorter for the Stars, but that's okay.

Congratulations to Tim Paris and Tim Godlee on Tim's Boat for a great race in the Star class. We also saw the return of Javelin to the PHRF A class with Tom Gore skippering. Great job with a first place finish. Also congratulations to Jeff Pevey and the crew of Ful Dek for a first in PHRF B.
