PCISA Silver Pacific Coast Champs


Saturday, April 26:

Twenty-eight PCISA teams arrived at EYC on Saturday morning to compete for the 2014 Silver Championships. Light and variable southerly breezes gave way to the predicted westerly which built from 8 knots in the early afternoon, to a steady 15 knots with 22 knots gusts later in the day. The strong breezes challenged the competitors’ boat handling skills, and overturned cFJs were a common sight in the normally benign Oakland/Alameda estuary. As wind speeds continued to escalate throughout the afternoon, several teams exercised discretion and good judgment by sitting out the later day races. Each division completed four races, and we will start Sunday with 5A.

Sunday, April 27:

Racers hit the course for the scheduled 1015 first warning, as the race committee attempted the leverage the remnants of an overnight southeast breeze to complete race 5A. However, the race was abandoned when the wind shut down, and a short on-land postponement ensued. Racing resumed as a nice westerly worked down the estuary, and each division completed to two more sets in shifty, 5 to 8 knot breezes before the racing ended by the 4 PM time limit. Following the completion of protest hearings, the competitors gathered for an award ceremony and more great food from the EYC volunteers. Congratulations to the Point Loma High School team, who sailed consistently well in all conditions
