District 20  Regatta Report

Sat Jan 22nd, 2005 through Sun Jan 23rd, 2005

Biscayne Trophy

 

Report by Carroll McCallum:

Olympian Bill Parks was the first boat to sail out for the races in the light southeasterly air on Saturday. Sunscreen was in order all day. Crews stayed in the boats or leaned chest down on the weather deck. Both races were course 4 and the second race started with the wind at exactly 180.

The awesome Augie Diaz was out in front all day. It was striking that while Augie and various others got away, the rest of the fleet stayed in close competition, finishing in a tight pack, like hounds pursuing foxes.

On the run back to the hoists Bill Parks serenaded the sunshine and the boats around him. For anyone working on their boat Saturday night there was more music, provided by a big party going on at the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club.

Sunday’s forecast was for a front to come through from the northwest bringing unusual cold. The sky was overcast and the wind 14 to 16. Crews suited up and got soaked, but the water temperature was high in the 60s, so it wasn’t ever cold. Andy Macdonald gloriously port tacked the fleet at the start. As he crossed several boat lengths to weather of the starboard tack boats on the line you could see his grin. There was one race, course 4 again and no recalls, so it was a fast day. Plenty of time for people to get to the airport and watch the flights north getting canceled across the board. Those going home to shovel snow had to be envious of the crews leaving their sail on the boom for the Olympic Classes Regatta starting next day.
