Coming Up

The skippers meeting for this weekend's combined OYRA/SSS Drake's Bay Race will be held at 1930 on Wednesday, August 24, at Island YC in Alameda. SSS entries are due Wednesday night as well. OYRA entries have until Thursday at 1700 to complete their registration. Be sure to read the Sailing Instructions carefully; they're available on www.jibeset.net.

Other regattas of note in the San Francisco Bay Area this weekend include Sausalito YC's Women Skippers Regatta, a Moore 24 Roadmasters Series Regatta hosted by Richmond YC, and Summer #4 at Sequoia YC, all on Saturday. Action on Monterey Bay includes Saturday's Double Angle Race, with starts in Santa Cruz and Monterey and the finish in Moss Landing, hosted by Elkhorn YC, and Santa Cruz YC's first Fall SCORE race on Sunday.

Island YC's annual Northern California Women's Sailing Seminar is all about women teaching women how to sail. Top-notch women sailors from all along the Pacific Coast volunteer their expertise to provide instruction in workshops in the classroom and on the water. Local sponsors donate items for the seminar's lunchtime and cocktail hour raffle on Saturday. Participants select from a variety of 'tracks', ranging from Beginner through Advanced. There are workshops for Spinnaker and Racing, and opportunities to customize schedules for specialized subjects such as multihull sailing, weather, troubleshooting and fixing engine problems. Women often return year after year to advance their skills. On Sunday, participants choose between a real sailboat race on the flat water of the Oakland Estuary or a cruise on San Francisco Bay. Participants enrolled in two-day tracks continue their practice sessions on the Bay. The discounted 'early-bird' registration fee, until September 2, is $250 for both days, and includes continental breakfasts, lunches, no-host cocktail party, one raffle ticket, class materials in a binder, WSS visor and a bag filled with goodies from sponsors. If space is available after September 2, registration fees increase to $275 for both days.
