The Seven Day Racing Outlook

After a relatively racing-light Fourth of July weekend, this week is ramping up to be a doozy. Racing concludes tomorrow in the US Sailing Junior Women’s Doublehanded Championship for the Ida Lewis Trophy hosted by Sausalito YC. The two starts for the record fleet in the 2008 Singlehanded Transpac leave the Corinthian YC at noon and 12:15. Then, there’s the inaugural Inter-Yacht Club Challenge presented by SLAM apparel with fleet racing on Saturday and match racing on Sunday, sailed in 1D 35s and hosted by Golden Gate YC. Oh, and there’s the Island YC’s Silver Eagle Race, an inside-the-Bay odyssey. On Monday, the 2008 Pacific Cup gets crackin’ with the first of 5 days of starts for the 61 boats in nine divisions.

So where can find events like these? In the 2008 Northern California Sailing Calendar and YRA Master Schedule of course. It’s available as a hard copy in most places you’ll find a copy of Latitude 38, and it’s also available online at the above link for easy reference. See you out there!

At long last Gulliver the macaw is back home in the U.S. Gulliver and his furry pal Snickers the cocker spaniel were abandoned on Fanning Island last December when their owners lost their boat on the reef.
We normally don’t do ‘crew wanted’ ads for individuals, but when it comes to folks who have made circumnavigations aboard schooners they’ve restored, we make exceptions.
