Wednesday Burger Night at Kits nearly Blown away
Back in Black unscrambles the SCraMbLE
Racing Island Time - Sept Long Weekend at Centre Bay
Fleet One Ladies with Isabella Bertold taking in New York!
(Oh, and taking on the International Women's Keelboat Championship)
BAR-B-QUE was almost Blown Out
Certainly the racers were! Wednesday races were given a pass by the M242 fleet as breezes hit 20 - 30 knots.
The Fleet Chef, Paul Martin, perservered however and served up as promised to the stragglers from Royal Van and those who stayed on from Kits.
Fine Day for a Scramble
Tiddly Cove Yacht Club once again provides the most interesting Race of the season. M242 Fleet Captain Allan Strain provided this report:
While Phil Craig (Black in Back) was fast from the start, the other 242s changed positions throughout the race. The current was not much of a factor, those racing double handed (BROOS and Marhenurh 5) were not over powered, there were huge wind pressure variations over the bay with corresponding changes in wind direction. Three of us went aground near the East Mile Marker on the way to the Bell Buoy. Shadowfax got stuck in the Passage Island dead air hole to sit last M242, while Cedric (Check Mate) just used white sails close to Passage, got the wind and was gone. From Pt Atkinson to the Dundarave Mark was very challenging: light wind, spinnakers unstable, and a small mark that's hard to see. Broos overshot the gybing angle on the right, Check Mate and Marhenurh 5 were in less pressure on the left, and Shadowfax wobbled up the middle to come second with Peter Wealick (Marhenurh 5) third.

The website was down for a couple of days. Here's an update thanks to Clare's newsletter blast:
COW BAY REGATTA and M242 North Americans
Update from Michael Clements:
As of last week we are sitting at 21 boats, of which:
- 13 are Registered, 2 are possibles, (Mike Merrick's team from Bellingham and Duncan Cameron from LA)
- No word yet from Cam Grey in Maple Bay; Judith from Victoria; or the new owner in Ladysmith
So the final count will probably be 19-20 boats.
