2015 Bayview Long Distance Race

Kudos to the four boats who went out in some chilly and windy conditions this past Saturday: Second Wind, Frunobulax, Clytie, and Patriot. The DYC Sweepstakes turned out to be another windward/leeward race day in which just one race got run….noting that the entire season yielded us only 5 windward/leeward races as we had one […]

This Saturday is the Crescent Sail Yacht Club Regatta.   SIs here:  http://www.crescentsail.com/Home/2015RegattaProgram.pdf […]

2015 DYC Sweepstakes

Eight of us had a good fun race from GPYC to DYC on Saturday, with five different boats in the lead at one point or another.  Note that only seven Cal 25s got scored – if you are not a DRYA-registered boat you need to verify with the committee pre-start that you are there.  Half […]

2015 GLYC – Early Bird — May-16

Six of us made our way out to the start line for the DRYA season-opening GLYC regatta in very dense fog.  Sort of fun especially as the CSYC contingent navigated as a group effort with a few humorous moments, but wouldn’t want to do that every week!  We got in one race in pretty good […]

2015 Hind Hornet

The past few years we have had 5+ Cal 25 entries in the season-opening Hind-Hornett doublehanded regatta.  It is a fun race with a FREE barbecue at CSYC including beverages afterward.  Start and finish is off of Crescent, and the course goes to either the Saint Clair Light and back, or a closer buoy and […]
