« Last post by Brad Silver on June 26, 2022, 10:18:49 PM »
Hull number 224.  This boat is probably the cleanest used U20 on the market.  It was in storage for 8 years until we bought it.  We have only sailed it a few times. The sails on it are in excellent shape.  It comes with 3 mains 3 jibs and 3 spinnakers two asymmetrical one class legal the other PHRF and 1 symmetrical.  Two of the mains and jibs are Mylar and the other set is Dacron.  The class legal spinnaker is in excellent shape the PHRF has been repaired but in good shape.  Has a Honda 2.3 air cooled motor.  Runs great. It comes with a full Boat Cover with mast up storage.  It has 2 jib sleeves and 1 mainsail cover.   It comes with super light racing spinnaker sheets  1/4" Flight Line Double Braid Line, Red and green and 2 Soft Shackle Dyneema SK-75 Soft Connectors.  This boat is setup very nice for racing.  It is located at Bear Lake.

For those skippers considering the trip to Richmond, CA in September and are wondering what the conditions are like, please see the attached charts.  The Richmond Yacht Club location is called the Richmond Riviera and Mid September is the warmest, sunniest, and moderate wind months of the year.  We plan on racing on the Southampton course which is protected waters due to presence of Angel Island that reduces wave height. Tidal currents during the racing will be slack to ebbing during the racing.

Hope you can join us and please let us know if you have questions related to accommodations, logistics, and venue.

West Coast U20s have lots of opportunities for sailing in the summer with Bay and Lake regattas opening up.  Torston Kanegsberg (Udecide) won the Go for the Gold Regatta on Gold Lake, Mike Josselyn (Uhoo!) was second (and first U20) in the Tiburon Yacht Club's Behrens Regatta on the Bay, and Donna Womble (Peabody) finished 26th overall (out of 83 boats) in the very challenging 67 mile Delta Ditch Run. See the youtube link below for video of Donna's fast ride up the Delta.

Next up is the Lake Huntington High Sierra and the HO Lind Series on San Francisco Bay with the Grand Finale being the Nationals at the Richmond Yacht Club.  If you have West Coast events you are sailing in, please post on the forum.

U20 Boat Maintenance & Care / Re: current source for rudder
« Last post by Paul DiMarco on June 21, 2022, 04:52:47 PM »
I found a tiller of the exact dimensions of the one that broke on my boat at Defender.com.  It seems to be a fairly standard size.

U20 owners and crew

If you can't bring your own boat to San Francisco Bay, think about coming to join as crew for another skipper.  Great experience on the Bay and skippers may be looking.

If you are bringing your boat or thinking about it and don't have crew available, please post on the Regattanetwork page that you are looking for crew.  You are likely to find some one who is experienced and it could save money on your crew budget.

Do it now so you can plan on attending!

U20 Boat Maintenance & Care / Re: water in hull when heeling only

Most likely coming in from the keelbox. Usually where it laminates at the top inner liner.

U20 Boat Maintenance & Care / water in hull when heeling only
« Last post by Chris Seagram on June 13, 2022, 11:35:44 PM »
need some advice on whether the deck joints deteriorate over time on the U20. in light air the boat sails well and stays dry in the hull. Sailing in stronger winds with her heeled over I am having to bail at least 5 large buckets from the hull on return to the dock. She is dry sailed since the day I bought her. Thought is to try and reseal the boat deck joints with 3M 5200. has anyone experienced something similar or can offer advise for other checks I might complete? I have replaced the gasket below the keel plate no water appears to be coming through the keel into the boat.
