    I tried to create a silver eagle race on raceqs... not sure it's working for everyone, I see Kyntana, but not nightmare... also, doesn't show two of my jibes on the way to RR and the wind looks flat...

    Burn the winches! One of my main winches popped open after rounding Red Rock. I sailed with one winch for a while, but it was killing me and my sail. That and an earlier spinnaker twist at Angel...

    Good music and good food will be what wins this race! Maybe it's time for me to get some HUGE speakers installed on Rock On. I have always wondered if others would make room if I had Ride of the...

    I did the YRA series again this weekend. I'm reversing my stand on that series - I don't think it's a great one for single handers. There's too much traffic going up and down the course for flying...

    Try raceQs for the silver eagle - I will be sure to use it for the race. Afterwards, we can all compare tracks and replay the race.

    Adding removeable ballast?

    I sail an Olson 25 single handed. In high winds and chop, I really wish I had more weight on the rail. I am considering if and how I might add removeable ballast (such that I don't ruin the boat...

    I think we would be much more likely to get 5+ single handed boats to the line if the SSS actually promoted more races in its schedule. I think piggybacking on the yra series could be a good option....

    Thanks for posting this. I had seen it before and forgotten about it. I have to say, though, that as someone who wants to do more single handed keelboat racing inside the bay in the summer, this...

    And while you're at it, sign up for the YRA series.

    I got first place for a single hander :)* I need some competition.

    *Last place among the Olson 25's.

    Cool idea - the Bay vs. Ocean Series. More opportunities for trophies! You could have a winner of the bay series. A winner of the ocean. And a winner overall. Lots of racing. Lots of winners. ...

    Yeah, I saw those last year, but wasn't really sure what was going on with them. I focused on the races I saw in the "It starts with a fiasco..." graphic.

    Maybe it's a matter of awareness / not being in the SSS calendar?

    On the forums here, there are a few of us scrambling around trying to get folks to participate in various races (me the YRA...

    I didn't consider the Vallejo as a bay race b/c it's an overnighter - so fair point.

    Still, there is a HUGE gap in the summer -- almost 3 months with no SSS races (in the bay or otherwise). ...
  19. +3 bay races in summer 2017 - what would it take?

    Hi - what would it take for the SSS to add 3 "in the bay" races next summer (2017)? Day races, to be clear, without any related overnight. I have to think there is demand out there -- after all,...

    Race against yourself! Use RaceQs

    Hi- As a proponent of "solo, solo" racing, I wanted to put a plug in for raceqs.com (no, I have zero relation to them, but if they want to send me a hat or something, I'd take it). With the app and...

    If the single handed fleet for Silver Eagle fails to materialize Jackie, how about we take Alcatraz on and see if either of us can steal the record back?

    FYI, I got a tiller clutch.

    It's the bomb! Much quicker and more precise than a line wrapped around the tiller. It's the difference between VHS and DVD.

    Note: it's not any better downwind...

    Any interest out there in forming a single handed division for the YRA series? I think this could fill the summer gap in SSS races -- after the Farallones on 5/14, there isn't another local race...
