31 October VSS Buoy Races Summary

Fellow Sailors:
 
Attached are the results of Saturday's Buoy race and the standings at October 31, 2015 after one Distance Race and one Buoy Race.
 
All of the Class A boats have PHRF ratings as Racer/Cruisers, except Fruition whose PHRF rating is that of Cruiser.  To increase compatibility the Race Committee adjusted Fruition's rating downward to eliminate the extensive number of credits allowed in the Cruising rating.

17 October VSS Distance Race Summary

What a perfect day for sailing. Winds were from the east north east at 10 to 12 knots with sunny clear skies.
We had 8 boats out for the VSS Distance Pursuit Race, this was a 9 nm triangle counter clockwise course. This was also the first time our committee boat was used to monitor the race.
 What a wonderful addition to our racing program.
On the committee boat helping with the racing procedures were, Johnathan Philllps, Ken Nolan and Norm Sooy. This was my first experience being able to monitor and view all our Venice racers from the start-finish mark and it was very exciting.
Hope to see all our Venice Racers on Halloween Oct 31st for the VSS Buoy race.

VSS Distance Races

Today was pretty much JAPSDIP!  Sunny with decorative cumulous clouds and a 7-9 knot SW shifting to NW breeze.  The race was the usual 9 nm equilateral triangle with a pursuit start, marks to starboard.  Only five boats made it out and we started in the middle, after the start times for Irish Wake and Fruition and before Lulu and Raegan-e.
