Racing Report, March 2018

As I write this, it feels like spring might finally be getting closer.  There are fewer days of steady rain, and more sun with longer daylight hours.

Saturday, March 17 is the last of the Snowbird Series races for this year. There is still time to send in your registration and use this last race as a tune up for the summer.  At only $15 it is a great bargain.

Snowbird Race of 2015. This weekend promises to be a lot warmer!

About an hour after the race we meet at Ray’s Boat House (upstairs in the bar) for results, announcements and handing out of the SBYC award plaques. Although there are no prizes for the series, you will have a chance to find out how you did that day and spend a few minutes talking with other skippers and crew.

Come out and join us, the weather forecast is looking good, and given the relatively short race, it is a great chance to have a tune up before the upcoming Blakely Rock race, or all the spring races sponsored by all the yacht clubs around the area!
