Spring Keel 2011


Fifty-three boats from six classes showed up for the 2011 edition of the Spring Keel Regatta at St. Francis. This year’s edition was to be a four race regatta (reduced from 5 or more in past years) sailed between Saturday and Sunday. The forecast called for 5-10 out of the NW on Saturday with clear skies and SE 10-20 with rain for Sunday. Saturday arrived with a light Easterly blowing and at the skippers meeting it was decided to postpone on shore and wait out the NW fill.

It's 2011 - Time to Pay Your Association Dues!


In order to be scored in Roadmaster Events you must pay your dues in advance. $50 for California/Nevada owners, $35 for other owners. Note that all drivers must be members of the association.

You can use PayPal or mail a check. Click on the Dues link under Class Info.

Thoughts for the new year…


January 29th is the Three Bridge Fiasco, the first of the Roadmaster Series and an event that the Moores always seem to do well at. Perhaps it is the sheer volume of Moores on the line that assures us a good showing or perhaps it’s that the boat is well suited to a shorthanded race where anything will happen! The Moore is such a sweet little beast that and in many way this race typifies just how much fun a simple boat can be. I still remember that year when Lowly Worm pulled it out! All you need is a partnership, a total of four hands, and you are ready to go.

To do so, you must first go to the User Login section (lower left side of the home page) and create your own username and password.

2014 Ditch Run - Winner's Report from Morjito


Morjito’s Ditch Run

Well, that was unexpected!

After coming off a lackluster performance at Whiskeytown (which was a blast nonetheless) we were ready for a little Ditch Run Redemption. Actually, I should explain that the desire for Ditch Run Redemption started in 2010 when we brought Morjito down for what turned out to be a largely upwind Ditch. At about 11:00 PM on that race, frustrated by the prospect of a post midnight finish, stressed out by our one-year-old daughter waiting with her grandparents at SSC, we pulled out a paddle in a moment of near zero breeze. DSQing ourselves, we managed to get in a few strokes before the breeze filled again and we proceeded to sail to the now irrelevant finish line. Earlier in that race we had been somewhere in the middle of the pack when we skipped mark 19 (never bring a charting GPS) and only realized the error when we crossed tacks (yes, still going upwind) with another boat who informed us of the error about ¼ mile up the course. Well, at least we got to do SOME downwind sailing that year while untying the string…
