PCISA Gaucho Regatta - Gold


Saturday, March 11:

Tough day on the water for the competitors and race committee. Overcast skies and still waters started the day, and led to an on-land postponement. Shortly thereafter, the breeze began to fill from the southwest ending the postponement, only to diminish to nothing by the time the boats hit the water. Competitors were once again sent to sandspit this time to be closer to the venue. The breeze came in once more from the ESE, and this time it built up to about 7 knots allowing for two good Gold race and one good silver race, but with the increased pressure a line of dense fog came in. After the races that were in progress had been completed, the RC guided the competitors back to the rotation area as the fog really set in. Another on shore postponement.

The fog lifted enough to be able to see puffs hitting the water. It filled across the course and the RC gave it one more shot only to get snuffed out once again as the competitors hit the race course. Sometimes it's just not a great sailing day, but at least there wasn't any rain despite having some predicted. No protests were filed.

Thank you to all of the UCSB Sailors for helping out and to all the competitors for their patience during the process. Looking forward to a better day of racing tomorrow.

Sunday, March 12:

Sunday started like Saturday ended with no wind and lots of fog. A southeasterly breeze filled enough to warrant sending the competitors on the water, but once again died by the time the sailors hit the course. An on-the-water postponement of one hour ensued, after which a bit of sunshine began to break through and a light southwesterly filled building consistently as the day went on. Racing commenced just after 11:40am. The RC was able to get off 4 Gold A races (adding to the 2 completed the previous day), and 5 Gold B races which unfortunately meant that 6th gold race had to be dropped. Silver A got three additional races, while Silver B got 4 races. The beautiful breeze made up for a trying first day and a half of shifty, light, and challenging conditions.

After racing, several breakdowns requests were heard and two protests. Both protests were disallowed. Breakdowns were awarded in silver fleet, but none were awarded in the gold fleet.

Thank you once again to the amazing race committee provided by current and former UCSB Gauchos. Ole!
