Moore News

Sunday, February 15th, 2015


Winters been rolling along rather nicely up here in the PNW with 2 Moores, #72 and #26, out racing in the SBYC Snowbird Series and #132 joining them for the STYC Iceberg race.  There’s one local sailor searching for a boat and a couple great boats for sale right now so it should be an easy search.

With Spring just around the corner it’s time to start thinking about what races you want to join in on.  There are a ton of options out there, so to simplify things we put together a list of races that we are pretty sure some PNW Moore’s will be showing up for.  That list is Here, so go take a look and if your interested in doing an upcoming race start talking about it through the Moore facebook page or via email so other boats know to join in as well.  Interestingly, at the bottom of the race list is two cruise ideas – yes Cruising on your Moore.  Highly recommended and can be a fun way for a small group of boats to deliver to an out of town race or the cruise can be a rally race of it’s own.  Give it some thought and lets talk more about it.  You can get more information on the Washington marine parks pass here.

Message from our Fleet Prez!

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Moore sailors,

I was sure at the onset that I could prove by deductive reasoning that the Roadmaster schedule was a fundamentally over-constrained problem, and that no single solution could exist to satisfy all requirements. No worries, we’ll prove it true.

That said – Introducing the 2015 Roadmaster schedule, where no 2014 great ideas about racing on holiday weekends are allowed, we tell mother nature what’s up, and the Moore 24 reaches back to its roots over highway 17.

January 31 Three Bridge Fiasco SSS

March 14-15 Spring Keel StFYC

May 16-17 PCCs SCYC

June 6 Delta Ditch Run SSC

June 27-28 Joel Verutti Memorial Huntington

August 8-9 The Gorge HRYC

August 28-30 Nationals RYC

October 3-4 Fall Regatta SCYC

Series scoring will be low points-scoring, with no throwout. That’s an intentional departure from the accommodations made since 2002. It means every race is a big deal for those placing in Roadmaster.

We’ll have a Shorthanded series announced shortly, that will start with DHF in March (also watch for an announcement on turnkey setup for DHF’s version of NCORC).

A huge thanks to all those helping out on the governing board and from whom you’ll be hearing throughout the year:

Vice President – Sydney Moore

SC Fleet Captain – Scott Nelson

SF Fleet Captain – Pete Trachy

Treasury – John Siegel

SC Measurer – Scott Sorensen

SF Measurer – Steve McCarthy

And the supremely experienced technical committee who will help find the balance as the fleet evolves.

Bart Hackworth

Morgan Larson

Mike O’Callahan

Peter Schoen

Kathryn Meyer

Our webmaster Scott Jackson, who will roll out the new website next month (stand by for all these updates on the existing Moore site within the next few days)

And Mark English for being our tireless 2014 Prez.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Three Bridge.


Moore Adoptions!

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

A few PNW Moore 24’s changed hands this past year, without following the proper adoption procedures, but we feel they have gone to worthy owners that understand the obligations they are taking on.

By Hull Number:

#16 Salt Shaker sold from Bainbridge Island to Zak Norris. Zak took the boat up to Anacortes to upgrade and get out sailing in 2015

#16 on its trailer after purchase

#37, Seldom Seen, sold from its rebirth Hood River Home to Andrew Estcourt, also of Hood River.

#39, Pura Vida, sold from it’s loving home in Hood river to Julio Predes, also of Hood River.  Julio has been out sailing with his son and friends getting the boat up to speed in the challenging but beautiful conditions of Hood River Oregon

#72, The Mighty Morphine sold from Bainbridge Island to Nick Farley and Kandace Glavick.  The duo brought the boat all they way over to Ballard and have been getting up to speed in the various PNW races.  The one rule they where given was they can absolutely never change the color of the cockpit.  If they do, we will paint it back.

#109 EverMoore was sold from Victoria British Columbia to one Captain Ryhs Balmer.  Ryhs quickly brought the boat south to Tacoma and jumped right in to the Winter Vashon race.  This is one of the boats rescued from the East Coast, it’s great to see her continue to be active in the PNW.

#114, everyone’s favorite Poore Decisions, was sold to another owner in Hood River Oregon as Mr. Walsh moved off to the Midwest.  #114 is also an East Coast Rescue and continues to show off her abilities in the challenging conditions of Hood River, Oregon.

Boats are changing hands, getting upgraded and new life is breathing into these old slippery ULDB’s.  There are a few more for sale currently, so if you’re thinking of adopting one of these little cult boats be sure to fill out your adoption paperwork and we’ll do everything we can to help and welcome you into the fleet.

Blakely Rock Benefit

Monday, March 31st, 2014

Coming up this weekend is the Blakely Rock Benefit – traditionally the kick off race for the PNW Moore 24 fleet with boats coming up from Hood River often for this one.

14856_10151917437240778_1734048040_nSo far there are 66 boats entered and only two Moore 24’s have stepped up and made plans for the event.  Do you really want to miss this?

#16 Finds a New Home!

Sunday, July 28th, 2013


#16 SaltShaker on her way to her new home in Anacortes, Washington.

New owner Zachary Norris – “Plans for the Moore would entail around Anacortes for a year or so then further afield. My kids are pretty young, but came out on the Bear for most of Race Week. I see myself doing alot of the shorthand races, as well as center and south sound stuff. Possibly roadmaster in a few years time.

Congratulations Zac, hope to see you out sailing her soon!
