From Artie Means,
San Diego YC is going to run our races this Saturday, Aug 3. They will have a boat to rescue us (which hopefully we wont need) along with my boat to help us out and bring water & beers.
This will be a pseudo test event for SDYC running the kite nationals in October, so the more guys the better
Meet 11 am in Coronado; Put this in google maps: 32.674368,-117.172176
Registration is free, click registration at the upper right corner of this link: http://sdyc.org/race/calendar/events/1395/
Please register, so we can show SDYC that we are interested. Just skip the ‘required’ us sailing # if you don’t have one.
Day 1 of the Kites and Big Cats Regatta is under way. The race course saw consistent breeze all day, building slowly from 16 to 24 knots. Top five riders battled it out with lead changes and tight starts. A strong international continguent showed up to compete and lots of America’s Cup spectators were treated to some epic kite racing. More tomorrow!
