Continuing with the list of coming attractions in 2019…
The seventh annual Taco Tuesday Series will begin in May and run thru the end of August. Since we know the racing will be excellent, the only question is, how will Secretary Rhonda Tolar top the 2018 post-race party?
The Harbor 20 fleet will continue to sail the Lorin Weiss Series, the pre-Championship Tune-Up, and the SCYA Midwinter Regatta that we host. Just like 1990 (when 30-35 boats PHRF boats entered every race) the H20 fleet is now strong, and they love windward-leeward courses.
The Hugh Angelman Series is always fun and will continue to offer racers the opportunity to sail one long race or multiple short races with lots of mark roundings each day. The idea here is to run different courses so different boats can excel.
The addition of the second and third Oil Island races drives the total number of races in 2019 (start-sail-finish) to approximately 115. Needless to say (but I will), Race Committee is a very busy group. To handle the challenge, we will have trained three more team members to be principal race officers (they manage the execution of the race on the water) to have a full complement of five PRO’s.
Race Committee Co-Chairs, Don White and Paul DeCapua, will continue to manage the administrative and on-the-water components with their usual full attention to detail.
Last point for this article – remember, we have the most experienced Race Committee in the harbor with more than 300 years of combined experience. Expect…and receive…the best!
