    2017 OYRA Light Ship



    57 crewed and shorthanded sailors headed out this Saturday!

    Sailing Instructions

    Also 25 El Toros entered in the Bullship! Could be interesting!

    And as Bob J points out also a swim event from Alcatraz to SF starting at 09:30. I wonder if you tip them if they will give your bottom an extra wipe?

    Sounds like an interesting idea for a new YRA triathlon event, "Swim with the sharks, run with the bulls, sail round the ship"

    In a civilized society, the promoters of the Alcatraz swim thing would give the swimmers car wash mitts so the contestants could
    give the sailboats a little love as the pass by in close proximity.

    Tough race at the end trying to avoid those Giants fans and live crab purveyors without spinning out. I threatened them with a winch handle but it didn't work.

    I can't tell if Buzz is aboard Condor - did he complete his bi-fecta?

    Yes he did!

    Iron man stuff right there!

    If he completed the Alcatraz swim it would have been a Tri-Fecta!

    We had over 50 boats including a couple of Tri's approved to race but that Nacra 18 (or whatever) was not part of our race.

    Did he have any support out there or was he expecting us to save his ass if things went sideways?

    I have no problem with anybody sailing where they want, when they want. I just find it a bit of a coincidence that they just happened to decide to go out to the Lightship the same day and time as we did.

    Did they really sail all the way to the light bucket?
