    The missing chartlet would be nice (three days after Brian pointed it out) but how about just telling us what time to show up!

    Whomever is doing this forgot to include the first warning time in the so-called SIs and this doesn't help:

    OYRA standing SIs can be found here ---
    https://jibeset.net/show.php?RR=YRA_...DOC=si&TYP=pdf

    7.2 The scheduled time of the first starting signal for each race day is 0940hrs

    Therefore, the first SSS division (sportboats) will be the 3rd start @ 0955

    Also of note ---
    2.1 ON EACH RACE DAY ALL YACHTS MUST CHECK IN VIA VHF RADIO WITH THE RACE
    COMMITTEE DURING THE CHECK IN PERIOD OF 0830 TO 930.

    PS. Don't forget your fly swatters!!!

    Thanks 'Zia. Surprise! is entered under our SSIs, not OYRA's, but now we know they apparently apply to our fleet as well.

    They could have simply put the first warning time in the Drake's Bay instructions, as is normally done. I guess four documents to cover everything is better than one.

    Note: Another set of everything was just published and now we're back to starting at the GGYC.

    I think.

    Hey Greg,
    What sort of sail combination is that? And when does it work well for you?

    We turned around, put the kite up, then saw 25+ under the bridge, and broached when the tower "gave it back". We recovered nicely and carried on.
    Sad that we didn't make it all way up ...

    It's the max jib (105%) and a hybrid Code-0/A3. Basically a Code-o with a more fuller shape. In light close-reaching conditions I found leaving the jib up works well. Most of the time the jib is lowered when in use.

    Saturday at 1700 I still had 20 miles to go, with 2 kts (maybe) SOG, so the math said motor. For a time, the fleet of 8 "still in-it-to-win-it" were pulling away as I motor-sailed pass Duxbury Reef buoy @ ~5kts. I took this picture as I was passing them. I'd just gotten my anchor set in 15' when the 1st of 4 boats crossed the line before the 2200 cut-off. Congrats to the only SSS finisher, Raven the multihull! And accolades to Arcadia, Concussion and Envolee, you get the perseverance trophy for Saturday.

    Sunday morning I awoke to see I'd anchored in an SSS pod with Surprise!, Dura Mater, Galaxsea, and Raven the multihull. With Arcadia and Envolee close by.

    So lovely to see Siren Sunday morning before the start.

    Nice weekend.
