2018 Gaucho Regatta - Silver


Saturday, March 10:

As is the case with the Gaucho, conditions are never perfect. This year boasted stormy, rainy conditions in the forecast. Fortunately, with that came some wind, but not too much. The difficult factor was that there was varying amounts of breeze coming up to 8 knots at times and then dying to nothing. After a short postponement on the water, a front came through and allowed for some decent racing in breeze from the east (a rarely seen direction in SB).

Breeze shut down again under a reasonable downpour. To allow the sailors to at least wait it out under some tents, an onshore postponement was put into place. About an hour later, wind came up again from a fully different direction. At the end of the day, there were four races completed in Gold for both A and B division. Silver finished 2 A races and 1 B race due to some difficulties with rotating into the correct boats.

Sunday, March 11:

Sunday brought light and variable wind from all directions with no rain this time. Initially there was a westerly breeze which brought lots of optimism and lots of races, but it died off to a glassy, still ocean. A fairly lengthy postponement ensued while the RC did everything in it's power to get another race going. At the very end of the day, just before time ran out, they were able to squeeze in one more Gold and one more Silver race for a total of 5 Silver races and 7 Gold races. A sixth Silver A race had to be dropped off the results.

Thank you so much to the UCSB Sailing Team and Alumni for staffing a majority of the regatta. Thank you also to the SBYC, the SB Youth Sailing Foundation, Craig Scheiblauer, and Geoff Fargo for use of their equipment to keep the event safe and operating well. Finally, congratulations to Point Loma for taking the win in Gold and Tamalpais for winning Silver!
