October Race Recap

On Saturday, October 15, 2016, OHSC held its final regular season regatta.  We had a beautiful day but with yet again very light wind conditions (Beaufort 1 range).  We had 34 members present.

There were 15 boats rigged that participated in at least one of the two races that were held. Race committee volunteers were: Carl Simmons, Dan Shuee, Mark Benham, Annette Grefe, and Melissa and Ethan Palmer. Thank you RC volunteers!  Also many thanks to Bruce and Sally Leigh and Pam Lineberry for providing coffee, fruit and pastries for us prior to the Captains” Meeting.

At the Captains’ Meeting, Stephanie highlighted our remaining event dates for the year (November 5th for the year-end banquet, and November 12th when we host the Inter-club Regatta) and Alan Taylor talked about some race strategies that OHSC sailors can consider during the inter-club which could help our team performance.

We were able to complete two races before the wind totally disappeared.  Congratulations to Michael Nordahl for winning both races, and to Alan Taylor for two third place finishes, and to Sue Cole and Warren Mitchell who each had a 2nd place finish.

Handicap scoring and race results are HERE.

All monthly regatta scoring is being reviewed for accuracy and final posting to the year-to-date standings, which will be used to determine year-end awards for those that are eligible.
