PCISA Singlehanded Championship (Radial)


Saturday, September 21:

39 Radial and 4 Full Rig Lasers competed in the PCISA Singlehanded Championship which is a qualifier for the 2019 Cressy High School Singlehanded National Championship on November 2nd and 3rd in the same location of Santa Barbara, California. Racing started out slow with just barely enough wind at noon to start a race. The wind carried large shifts from the south and averaged 3-4 knots. Due to an up coast current, the radials experienced several general recalls and even the four full rigs had individual recalls until the wind shifted to the west and kicked up to 18 knots holding the boats off the line a bit and smooth sailing from then on. It backed off a bit at about 3:30pm to a nice 12-15 knots all from WSW. W4 courses were run all day and there were no protests filed. Seven radial races were completed and eight full rig races were completed. Thank you so much to an incredible race committee of Jeff Seawards, Kent Pierce, Jon Ziskind, Colin Martz, Claire Wicker, Natalie McCaffery, Eric Andresen, Eric Stokke, and an outstanding shore crew of Laura Seawards, Martee Andresen, Nancy Martz, Justine Forgea, and Heidi Ziskind.

This event will qualify the top three radials and top three full rigs for the National Championship held in Santa Barbara on November 2-3, 2019.

Sunday, September 22:

A dismal forecast was on the table for Sunday, however much to everyone's surprise, a breeze line rolled down the glassy ocean right at 11:30am and allowed the race committee to start pumping out races right at the noon first warning signal. Breeze was very shifty ranging from 195 to 225 degrees and kept sailors on their tows. While the breeze never got much above 7 knots, it never fell below 4 knots, and the current cooperated as well being down coast going with the wind which made for no general recalls in the 39 boat radial fleet. The full rigs sailed two races and decided they'd had enough fun for the weekend and sailed in on their own which permitted the RC to crack off another seven races for the radials for 14 total. W4's were ran all day. There was one redress filed for a breakdown, which was denied. Congratulations to Diego Escobar (Point Loma), Morgan Pinckney (Newport Harbor), and Taft Buckley (Redondo Union) for advancing to the 2019 Single-handed National Championship in the Radial Fleet, taking place in Santa Barbara, on Nov. 2-3!
