Sunday, Feb 10, 2019 - Races 1 & 2


Race Format:  PURSUIT


We finally got Races 1 and 2 of the Spring / Summer PHRF Series off, after 2 delays in January.  A total of 7 boats came out on a beautiful sunny, warm and breezy day. The wind was out of the East at about 8 and increased with some gusts up to 13 -15 mph.  We welcomed 2 new racers to our group (Joe and Leslie Duffy, Catalina 22) and (Sharon Grasmehr, Ericson 323).


The course was 4.7 nm and covered the entire Boca Ciega Bay.  Starts commenced at 12:30 pm.  A downwind running  start was employed in both races.


One of the reaching legs utilized the ICW. Here is a quote from one of our sailors. “My body is reminding me that it has been about two months since I big boat raced at my club. We took first in the first race; despite jockeying for position, in the channel, with the 113 ft motor vessel (we are a 22 ft. Sail boat) Starlight Cruise Dinner Motor vessel. There is some great video that some of the passengers took of us... the second race was uneventful, and we did not finish last.” 


There were 2 incidents in the ICW where racers searched for and found shallow water. Since they were racing, they refused tows and got themselves going again. The Race chairman has made a promise not to utilize the ICW in future races. 


Order of finish for the Race 1:                            Race 2:

    1.     Doug Fuller and crew on Seaduceme           1.  David Roberts and crew on Legacy
    2.     Sharon Grasmehr and crew on Moonshine    2.  Mark Rother and crew on Godzilla
    3.     Mark Fortune and crew on Echo                  3.  Sharon Grasmehr and crew on Moonshine              

      Photos coming soon.  We are glad that everyone had a good time during the races and afterward.

      In 2016, the Sunday PHRF* Series race classifications were changed from Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker and Cruising to PHRF A, B and C. The range of PHRF ratings per each class are summarized as follows:

      PHRF A:              Ratings Ranging from 140 – 219

      * West Florida Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (WFPHRF)

       

      Having a WFPHRF certificate is a good thing, as it allows you to compete in other racing events in our region with your rating. If you do not have a PHRF Rating from WFPHRF, BCYC Race Committee can provide a PHRF Rating for your participating sailboat.

       

      The West Florida Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (WFPHRF) serves the Florida West Coast from Crystal River to Marco Island and all of the Tampa Bay area. The primary objective of WFPHRF is to establish and maintain an equitable system of handicapping boats for the boats owned or chartered by its members.

       

      WFPHRF Ratings are performance handicaps, based on the speed potential and performance of a boat. To the greatest extent possible, race results and observations of actual races provide the data used to determine and monitor ratings. Ratings are determined by members who serve voluntarily as Handicappers on the Rating Committee.
