The YRA reminds us that the deadline to enter the Great Vallejo Race, on April 30-May 1, is Friday, April 29, at 1700 hours. "We've got tons of great stuff planned for this year's race, from the all new overall awards, to downwind scoring for Saturday, to a fantastic party with great food and great entertainment Saturday night." In case you were planning to do the turn and burn after Saturday's race and skip the rest of the agenda, be advised that three bands will play, from 1530 to 2300 at Vallejo YC. A free Mount Gay rum punch tasting will be held from 1600 to 1800 in the food vendor area. Red Mount Gay Caps will also be handed out to the first 200 skippers. Winners from Saturday's race, plus door prize and raffle winners, will be announced between 1930 and 2000.
The final pre-race Pacific Cup-sponsored US Sailing Safety at Sea seminar will be held at Encinal YC in Alameda on May 14. On Sunday, May 15, PCYC is sponsoring an optional second day of training that includes the hands-on and in-the-water elements required for compliance with World Sailing’s (ex-ISAF) requirements for international and non-U.S. races. See www.pacificcup.org for more info and to register.
Registration for the Delta Ditch Run from Richmond YC to Stockton Sailing Club on June 4 is open at www.stocktonsc.org. SSC will give solid metal medalions to all finishers, skipper and crew, again this year. "One thing new for this year is that we are going to also post the finishes using 'downwind' numbers for comparison only," says race chair Tom Lueck. "The official finish and awards will be given out using the regular PHRF numbers. We hope to get more boats and especially larger boats entered so that we can really get an idea of how the downwind numbers compare."
