2016 - 2017 Winter Sailing Season

Henry's NSFW Capsize at "Lucky Cove" - Nov 2016

Light and tricky wind day in SF Bay so we had to race over in "Lucky Cove" off south coast of Sausalito. You can't see the puffs coming down quickly from the overhead ridge and they can sneak up on you.

Hoel beats Henry to the mark with the "lift of the day" at Lucky Cove on a very desperate-for-wind day. Sometimes the puff catches you by surprise, as evidence here. There is a cliff just behind me where I am videoing and the puffs come over with very little warning.

Towing in EYC kids BAYS#1 - Nov 2016

I gave the Encinal kids a tow in and this is what it looks like from RIB. That's Marco in front.

Video tour of Opti hardware at NOLA midwinters

Here's a video of the tantalizing hardware from NOLA Midwinters / Spring Team Qualifiers. Henry didn't win hardware but he did win an invitation to join the US National Team and opportunity to represent Team USA at South American Championships in Paraguay.

Racing 29'ers at RYC - Dec 2016

Fun regatta at Richmond YC (probably the best place to sail out of in the Bay Area.) Multiple fleets including a lot of skiffs.
