The Island YC’s Doublehanded Lightship gets going tomorrow, and although the weatherman is calling for rain, he’s also calling for 15 to 25 knots of breeze from the southwest! That should make for a romper-stomper of a race, especially with the 5.5-ft swing and the trip to the Light Bucket coinciding with the meat of the morning’s ebb.
Next weekend sees the second installment of the ’11 Singlehanded Sailing Society schedule with the Corinthian Race on April 2. BAMA’s signature Doublehanded Farallones is up for its 32nd contest on April 9, and registration is already up. If you need something to get you thinking about race strategy, check out the GPS replay of last year’s race.
