September 29 Centerboard Fleet write up and results

John Kreidler  | Published on 10/1/2018

Congratulations to Steve Kiemele (and his lovely wife Margaret) for their bullets this past Saturday.

 

You could see this one coming…PRO Paul Harder got us out to the course pointing at the double bridges where we had about 3-4 coming directly down from the DB. Warm up was nice and everyone was thinking that we might actually have a nice day of racing. But ohhh nooo. Not quite.

 

First race Steve on Artful Dodger got to the windward mark first with many boats close behind. John (with Greg Torissi) and Ronnie (with Patrick Hopp) were within 3-4 boat lengths of Steve at the leeward mark. John hits the mark and promptly looses a bunch of boats (pretty costly doing turns in 3-4). From that point on Steve pretty much puts the hammer down and wins going away. John beats Ronnie by 1 sec corrected for second, Ronnie gets third.

 

Second race…you could see this coming. It was probably 1-2 when the race got started and continued to drop throughout the race. Steve took the early lead and never looked back, Ronnie was second and Rick Fontenot on his Weta Trimaran was third. The wind completely died when most of the fleet was halfway up the leg when it finally went kaput with only Steve, Ronnie and Rick close enough to finish. Painful.

 

We have 3 sailors that have qualified in the season long series and are dropping scores (Rick, Ronnie and Fleet Captain Eric Seymour). Hard to believe, but only 4 race dates left in the series, this Sunday October 7, October 20, October 28 and November 10.

 

We have a Steak on the Lake race scheduled for Saturday October 20th. Make your plans to attend and eat steak with the Fleet! All you got to do is show up and race with us. We would love to see you on the water with…so put it on your calendar and join us for a great steak dinner after racing. Registration is required so we have enough food. More details to come.
