Hello Everyone

 

As most of you could guess there was a little too much wind on the lagoons for Penguin sailing last Sunday.

Six skippers showed up at the pond. It looked like it might be OK to sail. A few boats launched

and tested out the conditions. It was fun until you were hit with gusts over 20 knots that you thought

this doesn't look good. So the decision was made not to continue sailing for the day.

We hauled the boats out and enjoyed some conversation and a beverage in the parking lot.

I know we are all looking for some nice weather for this weekend.

 

Please remember that after the Single Handed Championship on the 28th we will meet

at the home of Dawn and Jon Pegis for the annual chili party.

If we do not sail on the 28th we will meet there at 4:00.

Please let us know how many of you are planning to attend so we know how to prepare.

Thank you to Dawn and Jon for inviting us all to your home.

 

Hope to see you all this Sunday. Start time is 1:00.

Hello Everyone

 

Saturday we sailed in perfect lagoon conditions for the first annual Richard Tennerstedt Regatta.

Wind was Southwest 5 to 8 knots. Seven boats sailed seven races. Mark Kastel took the event with a last minute pick up crew. They won the first race as if they had been sailing here every week. They sailed well enough the rest of the day to finish five points ahead of Team 9730 in second. This was some very close racing. The first four races were won by different boats. After that it was up to the guys with the time at the lagoon. Mark and Sandy have been sailing here longer then most of us and the results show it. Conditions were a bit squirrelly at times and that is what makes it interesting at the lagoon. Trying to keep the boat moving while you wait to see which way the fill in was going to be from can be quite taxing. I am sure everyone enjoyed the afternoon. After the racing everyone gathered at the Rapp residents for a few hours. Thank you for inviting all of us to your home. It was nice to see the group get together after sailing. We can look forward to seeing some pictures from the day courtesy of Richard Blatt. I can't wait to see them, this was a great day to be on the water.

 

Thank you to Ed for setting up the course and scoring the races.

Thank you to everyone that sailed.

Hello Everyone

Once again we enjoyed ideal frostbite sailing conditions at the lagoon.

Wind was Northeast at around 8 knots. Temp was just around 50 but the wind was off the big lake and had some chill to it.

Seven boats sailed six races. Only one boat sailed with crew and I think the results display that having two people in the boat works.

Team 9730 showed us how to get it done in the first two races and sailed well enough in the rest to win the day.

Bill caught the shifts right and kept it going to take the win in the third race. Ross took second in the fourth race

and won the fifth race. Dan followed suit and took second in the fifth race and won the sixth race.

I did not see the action but there were some different opinions on how to get around the top mark in some of the races.

It looked like a few boats were sailing around in circles. I am glad someone was trying to keep it fun.

Congratulations to Ross in second and Bill in third for the day. Both of you were sailing well.

Getting that boat dialed in and taking second for the day, finishing just one point ahead of Bill should feel good.

Congratulations to Team 9730 for winning the day.

Thank you to everyone that sailed and helped with launching and hauling.

 

Please remember that next Saturday November 6th is the Richard Tennerstedt Regatta.

Skippers meeting will be at 12:00. Start is at 12:30.

 

Sunday November 7th we will sail Fall Series day 6. Start is at 1:00.

Hello Everyone

This week was just as fun as last week. The rain cleared up and it was a nice afternoon for sailing.

It was very demanding for how small the course was. The wind was 14 knots from the Southwest.

Four boats sailed four races. Thank you to Marco for handling the RC duties.

Jack was able to win the first race by winning the start and just keeping it moving good the whole way around.

I tried to port tac the start in the second race and ended up taking all their transoms. It worked out anyway

as the wind went left for a few moments after the start and by the time they came around to port the wind was

back to the right and I was in clean air on starboard and they never caught up. Bobby and crew took the fourth

race, which I did not see because of some equipment failure. The port side shroud pin at the base of the adjuster was missing.

I noticed it just as I was turning on to port. I went back to starboard and thought, how am I going to get in to the dock

without wrecking the boat. I had no spare pins or any line. I was able to put the hook on the rubber band that pulls the cars forward

in to the stay adjuster and I think it would have worked for a few more races. So it was jerry rigged and I tried to finish. I had to save that one point.

The wind seemed to be getting stronger so we decided to call it after the fourth race.

As we sailed to the dock the wind calmed down to 10 knots. We should have kept sailing.

There was a bit of rain as the boats arrived at the dock. It lasted only a few minutes.

It was not enough to require a jacket. It was a short day with only four boats.

Thank you guys for helping with me pack up the boats.

 

Please remember to mark your calendars for next month.

We will sail Saturday November 6th and Sunday November 7th.

The 6th will be the Richard Tennerstedt Regatta, formerly known as the Cold Ní Nasty.

We will meet at 12:00 and Start at 12:30, $10 Entry Fee.

On Sunday the 7th we will sail Fall Series Day 6 Start time is at 1:00 as that will be the end of DST for this year.

 

Letís all hope for a nicer day next week.

See you Next Sunday. Start time is 1:30.

You can wear your costumes if you want.

Hello everyone

Once again we enjoyed another perfect day for sailing at the lagoon.

Wind was Northeast 5 to 8 knots, 10 boats turned out and we sailed six races.

The line was short and the RC boat was tucked in the trees near the island. This made for a few jam-ups at the boat. We found out that only one boat could fit between the RC boat and the trees. The starts were very exciting and must have been fun to watch. The racing was very challenging. The score sheet shows it was not an easy day to find your way to the front of the pack. I enjoyed the competition as I am sure everyone did also.

It was an even split between boats with crew and the single hander boats.

Five sailed with crew and five sailed single handed with three out of the top five boats sailing with crew. I think the boat is fast with two. Good to see some children crewing in some of the boats. That is what this class is all about, and has been over the years. There are many great yacht racers out there who spent time in Penguins in the early stages of their sailing experience. So thank you to you guys for doing your part in perpetuating the great sport of sailing. We could use more of that at the lagoon.

Bob and new crew Mia Moline sailed well. Mia at 6 and 3/4 years old was sailing her first races at the pond. They had their act together by the end of the day to win the last race. This gave them the one point ahead to take fourth for the day.

Congratulations to Jeanne and Jeanette for winning the day. The girls have the boat figured out and have been showing us all how it is done. This is a competitive fleet and that was some great sailing.

Two weeks in a row. Come on guys we have to do something about this.

 

Thank you to Ed for starting and scoring the day, and for calling those over early boats,

and the close finishes. From all of us thank you Jeanne for the twizzlers.

 

Thank you to everyone that sailed. This was a great day to be on the water.

Hope to see you all next Sunday.

Hello Everyone

 

As I am sure you know Sunday turned out to be a great day for sailing at the Lagoon.

Wind was West at 7 to 10 with the occasional gusts to 12. It was a good direction to have a long course.

Racing started on time at 1:30. We sailed six races. There were seven boats on the line.

The starting was very aggressive. I didnít have any successful starts this week.

This was the first time in a while that we had someone in the RC boat. This turned out to be a good thing because there was some very close finishing.

Thank you to Dan for getting the committee boat from the Lloyd beach. This is a big help for us all.

Launching went well. The haul out went a bit slower due some kayakers using the ramp as a meeting place.

Congratulations to Jean and Jeanettefor winning the day. This was a super fun afternoon of sailing.

 

We could use some help with the Race Committee for this weekend.

Thank you to everyone that sailed.

 

Hope to see you all this Sunday

Patrick

Hello Everyone

The Fall Series opener turned out to be a very tricky day to sail.

Wind was Northeast 12 to 15 gusts near 20 with chill temps low enough to

call it frostbite sailing. Five boats came out to race. We all sailed single handed.

Three of us sailed a single lap in the first race while we waited for some additional boats.

The rest of the races were two laps. The course was set along the East side of the lagoon.

It was very hard to time the approach to the starting line with the wind speed and direction changing constantly.

There were a few spectators out to watch the racing. It must have been funny to see as it was very

frustrating in the middle of the course where the wind seemed to be coming from all directions.

 

Thank you to everyone that sailed

 

Hope to see more of you this weekend.

Patrick
