Today the St. Petersburg Yacht Club race committee showed me why they have such a good reputation for race management. The course I covered had five different classes on it and they were all racing multi-lap courses, some W/L, some triangle. It made my job tougher because every time one fleet was rounding the windward mark, another fleet was finishing just to windward of it.
The RC got in two long races (and 3 for A Cats because they are that fast) despite a long postponement in the AM.
With A Cats and Ultima 20s (and all of the five fleets) meeting in right-of-way situations and a big bang from a collision between an FD and a U20, I barely had time to complain about light breeze. There was a lot going on. I didn’t get catch the collision on “film” but maybe it can be seen on Kattack’s race tracking at http://www.kattack.com/ . Let’s hope the sound was worse than the damage.
