Moore News!

Things are really ramping up for the sailing season to get underway  -

The Blakely Rock Benefit (http://styc.org) is quickly approaching and word on the street is 4 boats are committed to race!  #26 is entered and #72, #60 and #44 (yes, a new boat in town) are going to enter.  Who else wants to join in?

To kick the season off, Ben and Jennifer are going to host a Fleet Party on Friday, April 3rd – yes, the night before Blakely Rock Benefit!  The Fleet Party will start around 5PM or so and go late I am sure.  We’ve got a turkey and a keg of beer and some appetizers, I believe the newest NW Fleet members, Mikki & Chon are bringing a Salmon for grilling.  It would be great if the rest of you bring side dishes – Thanksgiving dinner type sides or whatever you desire!

Next up will be the Tulip Regatta April 25/26, the Race to the Straits May 3&4 and then the Eugene Reservoir to meet up with some Oregon boats on memorial day weekend.  If you are planning on doing any of these races, or others, speak up early so others can make plans to join you!

But, even though the season is getting started it doesn’t mean that boats haven’t been out sailing!

Morphine

#72, Morphine, is putting in their time on the boat and have been competing in the Center Sound Series and are currently sitting 5th out of 8 in their class after two races and a super windy Scatchet Head race.

And this past Saturday #26, More Uff Da, and #72, Morphine, finished up the 5 race Snowbird Series with beautiful sunny skies and winds in the 25 to 30 knot range.  Some serious downwind rippin’ runs with Morphine clocking over 15 knots of boatspeed at times.  I think they’re learning the boat just fine… 1st overall on the day to #26 & 2nd overall on the day to #72!

And while these boats have been out sailing Chon (pronounced Sean) Pieruccioni quietly snuck down to southern California and adopted #44!

Come on by the fleet party before the Blakely Rock Benefit and welcome Chon and his wife Mikki to this crazy fleet of old cult boats.
