PNW Fleet Update

September 26th, 2017

We just had our fleet championship Round Bainbridge Island double handed overnight race in some light current riddled conditions where strategic drifting became the way of game.  Congratulations to #47 Moorality for taking first on Saturday and #16 Amorillo for 1st on Sunday – winner of the weekend to be announced shortly.

Moore's in Bremerton

Next up is the Moore 24 Fleet Roadmaster scheduled race, Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle’s Puget Sound Sailing Championships – it blew 30 last year!

  • CYC’s Race Chair came to me a few months back and said hey, I see the Moore’s have our regatta on their Roadmaster schedule, what can we do to make the event fun for the Moore 24’s.  Too which I answered – COOK A PIG!  We’ll they have that organized and will be cooking a pig all night for everyone at the regatta but they are doing it because the Moore 24 fleet put their regatta on the Roadmaster Schedule and they want everyone coming from out of town to have that little bit extra for making the trip
  • You can pre purchase tickets for $10 on the registration page (on site is first come first serve and dinner tickets are $15) https://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/eventReg?oeidk=a07edqcxi7gaec322e8&oseq=&c=&ch=
  • Here are some highlights CYC has for the weekend:
    • CYC Seattle is having a pig roast (a whole pig at the request of the Moore 24 Fleet) on Saturday (complete with pomp and ceremony that goes with a pig roast)
    • Chalk talk by Ullman Sail and possibly North Sail as well as  Seattle Divers
    • 2 days of fun racing on the Puget sound
    • Free Parking for trailers (for those out of state Moore’s)
    • Pre race stretching class. (tentative based on RSVP’s) and not just your 12oz lifting arm.

#26 Podiums at Nationals!

Moore 24 Nationals 2017

Holy bejeezus that was good times! My affinity for the little old Moore 24 is no secret and her infamous beginnings not with standing she’s proven to be a boat that brings together some serious fun loving people. I mean seriously, who would have thunk that a sailor that ruined a good mold burning party by stealing the mold would end up making modifications to this remarkable boat that turned it into an unparalleled inshore and offshore platform that over 40 years later is still capable of taking a serious beating for 3 straight days while bringing together sailors that are more like family than on course rivals.

Anyway, I digress… We had the privilege of competing in the 41st Moore 24 Nationals August 25th thru the 27th and what a Nationals it was! Hosted by one of our favorite California yacht clubs, Richmond Yacht Club, it was certainly one for the record books. Arguably not one of the best attended Nationals in history with 16 boats but certainly memorable and super challenging for everyone that made it out.

The forecasts lined up favorably for us Pacific Northwest Sailors. 17 to 19 knots on Friday, 9ish knots for Saturday and 6 to 7 for Sunday. Nothing crazy and winds that lend themselves towards sailors with more time on their genoa’s than that little non-overlappy thing up forward. – Or So We Thought….
