2017 Fireweed Regatta

2017 Governor's Cup Results

The 2017 Governor's Cup results are here...

Ten small boats participated over the two day regatta.

Racing was very competitive with small spreads in corrected times and several changes in the top three slots over the course of the regatta.  We even had an exact corrected time tie in one race.

Congratulations to winners Dave Johnson and Elayne Hunter!  Good luck at the North American!

Special thanks to Addy Wright for another excellent RC job under chilly conditions and Vice Commodore Bruce Lee for keeping us all organized.

2017 Firecracker Regatta

For the first time we've separated the mighty Buccaneer Fleet from the rest of the pack.

The linked score sheet here shows separate fleets for Buccaneer, Open and Big Boats.

Saturday racing was sporty, but Sunday brought continuous rain and zero wind.

Family Fun Day

  • *Runs
  • *Sack Races
  • *Big Lake Mountain Marathon
  • *Straw dig - $5.00 per kid (extra change welcome)
  • *Whip Cream Contest
  • *Water Relay
  • *Toy Boat Derby - *Derby rules: boats can be 12" long, no restriction on sail sizes, width, keels, number of hulls. There are 12 boats available for the kids to adapt (but they need to figure out sail material). Adults need to build their own. Can prebuild before you come to the club. No RC Boats. 

FYI, we are doing the Boat Derby at Oliver's request, so please join in the fun. He felt left out that we only did this when he was little. 😀

If boats are ready on Saturday, we might do some heats before Bruce gets things started.
