Sunset Series Update – Results and Summaries May30-June20


May 30th:  

5 Races were held in a very light and patchy southerly breeze. Jaimie Hogan wins the night with 7 points, followed by Ben Pickford and LP Gagnon in third.





June 6th:

3 races were run.  All weather and wind conditions/directions were encountered, except for snow.

Race 1 had strong winds from the South.  3 boats dumped close to the start line after the start.  One of the sailors has the race on tape using a webcam…  Committee boat had a hard time staying in place…  Nobody got sea sick….

Race 2 saw less strong winds shift to the East.

Race 3 almost did not happened… The wind (or what was left of it) shifted and now came from the North.

No wind and a nice down pour chased us out from the lake.

Race Committee: LP Gagnon











June 20th: 

5 races, North West winds, some good gusts for race 1 and 2. Optimist racer Alec Watters enjoyed the ‘Bermuda” race modification and getting to the beach before the Lasers, ‘Birthday Boy’ Payton Byrns and Tanis Worme were continuing some of their winning ways from the 420 racing into the Taser. Steve Shirtliff in laser and Zia Shirtliff in Opti were doing some heavy air reaching before racing. Alexander Barry and father John Barry are in the record book as the Youngest Sunset Series racer. “Rasta the hound” wanted to be very close to mom, swam upwind of the leeward mark, watched race 2-5 from the Zodiac.

Last Night is June 27th, 420’s and optimists are available for the race, forecast is very positive.

Sunset Series Report – Race Day 2 – May 16th 2012


13 eager sailors were greeted with warm and near windless conditions on the second night of the Ebs Sunset Racing Series.   Despite the lack of enthusiasm in the breeze, Jamie and Shawn were able to pull off three races that left everyone happy. The starting line for the first windward leeward race was….cozy….allowing everyone to get up close and personal when the gun went off.  Mark Lammens, fresh from a coaching clinic in Ontario, impressed the fleet with a port tack approach followed by what is known as a  “mega roll tack”.    This highly complicated maneuver involves rolling the boat so far to windward during the tack that the mast tip actually touches and dips below the surface of the water.  To complete the tack, the sailor dives into the water under the boat, grabs the centerboard and aggressively pulls the boat up to windward,   resulting in good acceleration off the line.   In some sailing texts, this move is also referred to as “capsizing”. Meanwhile, at the committee boat   Ben was fast off the line, and headed to the right side of the course (the right way to go all night). Despite this being his first race of the season,   Ben schooled everyone on how to sail smart and fast, arriving at the windward mark with a substantial lead over the fleet.   Ben was headed for a perfect score for the night winning both the first and second race, only to have count a DNF in race 3 when the wind totally shut down.    Everyone got a good view of Ben’s transom for the majority of the races.

The winner of the night was LP, with a very consistent performance of 3,3,3, followed by Randy (8,2,1) and Ben (1,1,DNF).  Mark gets extra points for creativity and style.  Thanks to everyone for helping getting the dock in the water, and good luck to all of those headed to Regina this weekend to race in the WASCANA  short course regatta.
