Anyone going?  3 boats get a class, 5 boats get a separate start. 3 marks races Saturday, Pursuit PHRF race on Sunday.

I know Phil and Mike J are planning on it.  Are you making the trip?

I believe I have crew.  If so, then yes.

Won't be able to swing it this year.  A bit to late on recruiting.  Had a string of 3 years in a row  for October in Richmond. Hope to get back there again next year!

Mike.  Glad to have you come and enjoy our Zombie Luau themed regatta.  I just confirmed that four local boats will be there so we will have a one design start for sure.   Mike

Another Great Pumpkin in the books.   The Saturday racing was very close and intense with winds ranging from 5 to 12 knots over the three races.  We had five boats on the line with Mike Eisenberg traveling down from Oregon.   Dave Woodside on Uagain got the most bullets and was clearly sailing hot.   Mike Eisenberg was second and Phil Kanegsberg was third.   There was an awesome deck party and then costume party that went well into the night.

Unfortunately, the racing was abandoned on Sunday for the Pursuit Race due to high winds predicted from fire areas...with gusts exceeding 35 knots.   

Pictures are attached.
