Races and Parties

Another great weekend at the club and on the boat.  Friday night started with burgers at the club.  As always, Lisa made great burgers.

Saturday, the Panda was volunteered as the committee boat for the Interclub races.  We had a great crew of people with Gary Edwards operating the boat, Lee Stevens and Yvette Yong leading the race, and Mark Canton and Brenna helping out.

Of course, the Panda not being a dry boat in moderate chop, Yvette and Lee got a little sprinkle on the way back.

Coyote Point entrants did a great job.

Of course, the race was followed by a great party hosted by Linda at the club.  We had plenty of club members in attendance and visitors from other clubs to stay on our docks and attend the festivities.  Gumbo was served up and the band made the club hop all night.

And, of course, Carly and Dave where serving em up all night.

With all this activity, Sunday was a quite day of relaxing around the marina and then visiting the club in the afternoon for libations.

Easter Weekend at the Club

The club was filled with activity over the Easter Weekend.  Friday night, we added fish to the usual Burger night menu.  Those that attended had a choice between the usual burgers and a great fish dinner.

On Saturday, the Andy Byrd Race was well attended by the Sailors.  Reportedly, they had a blustery day on the bay.

Saturday evening, we enjoyed a meal catered in by Poplar Creek.

On Easter Sunday, we held an Easter Brunch.

All of which, of course, was followed by an Easter Egg hunt for the youngsters present.  The Easter Bunny had visited earlier that morning and populated the regatta room with offerings.

Spring SHORTEEZ Regatta

The Coyote Point Yacht Club 2015 Spring SHORTEEZ Regatta was great success!

This semi-annual event works to bring new skippers out, and to give the smaller boats a chance for some very close competition. The regatta is limited to boats with a PHRF rating of 180 or higher, which leaves the faster boats all in their slips for the day.

Seven yachts came out for an afternoon of racing. There were three short course races, and conditions were beautiful! The competition was close, and in the third race only three seconds separated 2nd, 3rd and 4th places.

The first race was in light air, with steady 5 knots from the northwest. By the second race the wind was up to 11 knots, and race three ended in a stiff 20 knot breeze with moderate chop. All seven boats finished all races, and a great time was had by all.

The winners were:
1st place: “Smooth”, Santana 525, Tom Fedyna
2nd place: “Gypsy Baron”, Cheoy Lee Offshore 27, Aaron Swerkes
3rd place: “Catch-22”, Custom 22, Roger Anderson
