Our 2018 race season has begun! Five boats competed in our first race in great wind conditions with solid tacking duels and strong downwind spinnaker runs . Click on Race Events tab to see details as well as replay the race on RaceQs. We should see more boats on the starting line as boats get launched. We have twenty registered skippers this year, a nice increase over last year.
Many of our members have begun to use the RaceQs smartphone application to track their race. It's free, simple to use, and allows for all particpants to view a fully integrated race picture after the race. It is also a great learning tool and we have received absolutely great feedback on its capabilities. On the Race Events tab to the right of each completed race, you can click on a RaceQs replay of each race as well as being able to click on the results. RaceQs is a great learning tool and you can download it for both Apple and Android smartphones.
If you can't see the results on the Race Events tab, please create a username on the LogIn page and you will be able to see Race Events and results by next day.
Note that one of our boats, Himmel, will be departing on 1 May for a transatlantic crossing and cruise through north Africa and the Mediterranean. The crew will be primarily the same sailors that you see on Himmel each Wednesday evening. She will miss most of the 2018 racing season here on Round Bay. You should see her out racing in April before departing and possibly back for the last Oct race. Check out the December Spinsheet article, pages 51-52, for more information:
