Catholic Cup


Sunday, October 8:

Sunday started with a talk from Dawn Riley discussing protest hearings, the Volvo Ocean Race (Whitbred), America's Cup, and of course Oakcliff Sailing. We postponed the rigging by about an hour until a storm system moved out. Racing took place in the mid-harbor channel of Black Rock Harbor. The wind was out of the Southwest, coming strait down the channel. Coaches and spare sailors were stationed on a moored Grand Banks just windward and 'starboard' of the starting line with coaches also invited to ride on the chase boats if they desired. We held 8 races ranging from 8 to 17 minutes in length averaging about 12 minutes. Wind was in excess of 20 knots during the wind delay before rigging and died to around 10 knots by 3 PM. Swells ranged from 6 inches to 2 feet.
