PCCSC Men's Singlehanded Champs

Summary

Saturday, October 26:

Fifteen laser sailors arrived at the US Sailing Center Long Beach to heavy fog and no breeze Saturday morning. After unloading trailers and rigging up PRO Mike Segerblom laid out the plan for the day. The group held onshore until 10:45 and the breeze started to fill in. After a short sail/tow to the race course off the Long Beach Pier the races were started alternating with the Women's Pacific Coast Championship starts.

Trapezoid courses with the lasers on the outer loop were sailed for the first five races races. The breeze ranged from 5-9 kts with a few short gusts over 10kts.

Around 1500 the breeze started to die and clock to the WNW. The whole race course was picked up and rotated to match the new breeze and the courses changed from a trapezoid to windward/leeward twice around. Four more races were sailed in the new configuration before calling it a day.

After seven races the points between the top four boats remain very close. Sunday should make for an exciting day of racing.

Sunday, October 27:

A thick marine layer arrived with the sailors Sunday morning. The wind would start to fill in and then die off so the decision was made to hold the fleet on shore for a brief delay.

By 1045 the group was departing the dock for the course. The wind was shifty and struggled to fill on the course until about 1345. Five races were sailed, some single lap windward leewards, others double lap windward leewards. The whole time the top four boats stayed very close together making for some exciting racing.

Congratulations to Stanford's Oliver Toole and UCSB's Stephen Long for qualifying for the nationals in Rhode Island!
