2017 NorthShore Race Results


Fall Series Race #3 Results

Spinnaker Boats

  1. Wave Monkey
  2. Whiskers
  3. Good Stuff II


            Well, not such a good day for racing with 4-6 kt SE winds initially, then dropping to 1-3 kts later in the day for our M1-J-M1 race. Unfortunately none of the non-spinnaker boats (Em Alee, Sea Fever, Intrepid, Summer Wind, Reivers & Tata Duende)   were able to finish within the 3 hour time  limit. The spinnaker boats just barely made the time limit and the order of finish results are:

Spinnaker Boats

  1. Wave Monkey
  2. Whiskers
  3. Good Stuff II


            All 3 spinnaker boats finished within about 1- 2 minutes of each other for an exciting finish.


NORTHDRAW #2 Results


North Shore Corinthians,

Wow….what a very great day for racing with 15-20 Kt+ winds from the SE as we close reached the 5.15 miles to the North Draw then broad reached back to M1 doing near hull speed the whole time!  Awards were presented after the race at PYC and here are the race results:

Spinnaker: (Note: with ~ 20kt winds coming back from the North Draw no one put up their spinnaker)

            2. Whiskers
           3. Cookie Monster

Non-Spinnaker “A”

  1. Aqua Mystic
  2. Knot Normal Too

            Our next race will be the Fall Series race #1 this coming Saturday, October 21. The skippers meeting will be at 10:30am at PYC. If the winds are good we may have 2 races to make up for the October 7 race that was cancelled due to hurricane Nate.  This race  will be sailed jointly with PYC.





Northshore Single-Handed Race

 It was a beautiful day and conditions could not have been more favorable for an evening sail on the North Shore.  Unfortunately, only 4 skippers showed up to enjoy the day.  The course was from M1 to P to L1 and back to M1, with Ta Ta Duende serving as “pin” for the starting and finishing lines.  All four contenders made a quick lap of the course, and the order of finish was:

  1.  Aftershock         Dave Zaterain
  2. Good Stuff 11    David Barr
  3. Risky Business   Albert Bacque
  4. Joie de Vivre      Bill Philips

Race # 3 was yesterday with 7 boats participating in our shortened M1-L1-M1 race. It appeared we were going to have 15-20 kts from the SW during the skippers meeting, but by race time the winds had dropped substantially down to only 5-8 kts. The beat to L1 was a little messy with the residual lake choppy waters and light shifty winds!
