Wed. May 31, 2017 - Races 5 & 6 (Spring Series)

  Watercolour as RC went out with Lucky IV Committee Boat with a southerly breeze at about 8 knots. Seven J-24's came to the line. Course was set south of Cuban Ledge Marker with EBYRA Buoy ‘R’ chosen as windward mark. Wind was steady and slightly building to a later sometimes 12 knots, with a slight choppy water.  At 7.00 pm, course for first Race was set as R-4 and racing began, with an altercation at the start line.
  Second race R-2 began at 7:57 pm as some large brilliantly lit sunset cloud formations were building in the west.  The wind held steady thru the race.  We finished and made it back to the mooring area with lightning in the distant west.
  Protest was filed in the first race from Heat Wave vs Seven Seas, who later withdrew.

Wed. May 24, 2017 - Races 3 & 4 (Spring Series)

  Seven Seas as RC went out early with a steady breeze from north at 40 degrees at 8 knots. Five J-24's came to the line. After RC set the W4 course at 6.45, a huge wind shift came through and at 7.00 pm RC was in no wind, so a postponement was blown. At 7.15 the wind returned to north at 40 degrees with 6-8 knots and Race 1 was started. Surcease won the start and lead at all marks to a 1st.
  Race 2 started at north 40- 50 degrees. One boat fouled the start and was called back. As boats went upwind the breeze was now shifting and oscillating 40 to 80 degrees. Wind started to go down to 5 to 6 knots. RC had set a W4 course and all boats were able to finish the race with no problem, with Jeepers in first.
   -Robin C Ricca for Seven Seas and Hideki H.
