SUNSET RACE II START TIMES AND NOTES

31 July 2021


OK, the forecasts seem to have settled down and we are in for a fairly typical race day: the 8 weather models I’m checking variously say 7-13 knots around 4pm and 7-16 knots 90 minutes later.  That’s more-than-enough wind to move all the boats along.  And all the models say either W or SW.  So I’m going with course E1, which is:  Start, R20 (P), R18 (P), R20 (S), Finish.  Tidal current will be INBOUND, starting at 12.35pm, maxing at 2.50pm and hitting slack/high tide at 7.04pm.  The entire race, therefore, will be on the tail of an incoming tide, which means wind-against-current, and that’s one reason I have avoided a course through the South Race after the shenanigans we had there during the Legends Cup.

The start times are below; I have included boats that told me they would be sailing and excluded those who said they would not (like Windsong and Skilligalee).  But I’ve included many that I expect might show up.  BLUE means CRUISING and RED means SPINNAKER.  Some boats appear in both categories but we will confirm and eliminate entries from the RC when you check in.  Also, because of our so-called Golf Handicaps, some identical boats do NOT have identical start times (e.g. the 3 Alerions)

Speaking of which: Please check in as follows: “Race Committee, this is XXXXX checking in”.   “Please go ahead XXXXX”.   “Race Committee, XXXXX checking in for Spinnaker Division and our start time is 4:xx:yy”.   This a) tells us you’re racing, b) tells us which division and iii) lets us check whether you have the correct start time.

If you plan to race and don’t see your name in this list, email me or call 917 543 0467.  We can compute a start time on the water, if you know your PHRF rating.
