    The GBCA Womens Regatta is this Saturday.  Our own Kevin Hayes is PRO, so it promises to be a stellar event. Three J/22s so far, but let's get some more!  Where are Nataleigh, Janet, Anne, Megan, Dana, Nancy, Marie?  All you other skippers why not let your female crew take the stick and you crew for her?

    Still time to make this class exceptionally large, thus ensuring the perpetual seahorse trophy goes to a J/22!  Sign up here!

    Our last Cabo race has been rescheduled to Wednesday, Sept. 27.  Same place, same time 18:15. This rescheduling is due to CLRA running the lost race that Harvey took away.  That CLRA race will be on Wednesday Sept 20.

    So more races = more fun!  See you at both.

    J22 Race to Cabo just gained another sponsor! Jenny, a rep from EuroSport Marine, came to watch the competitive sailing and then spoke to us about the new place in town for sailing gear. She added to our random prizes by giving away 4 pair of SLAM gloves. Check out their web site, at the link below.

    Wednesday night race replay http://raceqs.com/tv-beta/tv.htm#userId=1037930&divisionId=48600&updatedAt=2017-08-10T01:46:19Z&dt=2017-08-09T18:10:02-05:00..2017-08-09T20:45:57-05:00&boat=Payaso&time=1502321650211&focus=Payaso&rival=Yikes&tab=fleet%26view=match

    Payaso looks a little lonely. Maybe Thursday mornings would be more interesting if more of us would play in the RaceQs virtual world!  (Notice how Payaso splits the entire J/24 fleet on the second upwind).
    Don't forget our social gathering at Cabo this Sunday, 4:00pm!
    And our fourth Cabo race day next Wednesday!  Fleet Captain Stuart has some ideas to spice this up.

    It’s about time for a Fleet 6 Social!

    Join your fellow J/22 sailors for a Sunday afternoon of libations, snacks, and lively discussion at Cabo Bar and Grill,  August 13th  at 4:00pm.  Among topics to discuss are our upcoming Heritage Cup circuit stop and the 2018 J/22 Midwinters, both hosted by HYC. Finger food provided by Cabo, and maybe even some random door prizes for members of the Fleet.

    If you haven’t done so already, you can officially join the fleet here!

    Hope to see you there!

    From Anne Lee:

    On June 10 & 11, three J/22s competed in the HYC Women’s Sailing Weekend.  A separate regatta was held each day.  Racing was made up of two fleets, the Pursuit non-Spinnaker fleet and a Windward/Leeward Spinnaker PHRF fleet. On both days, the Spiller and Fairfax trophies were awarded the Pursuit non-Spin classes which had the most entries.

    The Catherine Spiller Trophy regatta, sailed on Saturday, saw racing conditions with winds starting out light and increasing to reportedly gusts of 20kts.   The Spiller trophy was won by a J/22, Crayola, helmed jointly by Linda McKee and Julie Goetschius.  11 boats competed in this Pursuit non-spin class.    

    Winds were light on Sunday for The Fairfax Moody trophy regatta.  The Pursuit line had 7 entries and was won by Redhead , a C& C 37, helmed by Meredith Eatough with no men on board!  

    The Windward/Leeward Spinnaker line had three entries for both days.  Allie Cribb helmed Tres Locos and Anne Lee helmed her J22 against the Melges, Water Nymph.  Anne Lee finished first with Allie a close second.

    Sunday’s  light winds gave the Melges an advantage with her asymmetrical spinnaker and she won the Tie-breaker against  Arielle Delissa  driving Helms a Lee, with Allie in third place.   

    We hope next year that more J/22 owners will lend their boats to the Ladies to compete in this event!

    Twelve J/22s raced in the second Cabo Series of the year. Fleet 6 proved they really can behave as four races were run with no boats over early. Maybe the line was long enough? An unusual NE breeze frustrated some while the cream floated to the top.  Tom Meeh and Marvin Beckmann were most consistent with a 1-1-1-2 and 2-2-2-1 respectively. Series results here.

    Circuit #3, at Austin Yacht Club, proved to be challenging and fun with 21 boat in attendance.  Winds were light and shifty but Race Committee managed to get off five races.  Three out of seven Fleet 6 boats were in the awards.  Doug Weakly took 1st, Vincent Ruder placed 2nd, Mark Foster got 3rd, Nataleigh Perez took 4th, and Tom Meeh got 5th.  Other Fleet 6 boats who participated were Stuart Lindow, Kevin Orff/Eric Simonson, Dov Kivlovitz, and Anne Lee.  I think I can safely say a good time was had by all Fleet 6 members!
