Just a reminder, there is a three crew requirement for the Moore 24 fleet at the Ditch Run this year. See you all there!
Next up is the Whiskeytown Regatta over Memorial Day weekend. All new Race Committee and PRO should make for a lot of racing and fun time for all. Out with the usual slow pace, instead we will be starting races while other fleets finish and we will be using all the wind the lake offers. Fun camping in under the oaks in the group site. The NOR can be found on the link below. Entry fee is $50 and there is no deadline for entry. Please reply to the yahoo site that you intend to sail so we can get a headcount.
3-3-3 Sailing Instructions
The bay cruise will start at 13:00 GPS time. The start/finish line is between two boats in Belvedere Cove, boat 1 is a white 25ft Mako powerboat with a blue dodger and two big grey outboard motors, boat 2 is a 10 ft grey zodiac dink with a 15 hp grey yamaha outboard. Anyone have a Moore Class Flag that I can borrow?
The current at GG is 11:20 slack, 14:25 Flood (3.1), 18:06 slack.
The 3-3-3 Race is coming up on May 7-8. This is a Triplehanded event.
We were set to use the Bay View Boat Club as the center for this event of a bay cruise, party, sleepover and casual sail home but then...
Hi Simon and Kurt,
I wanted to give you an update on how we are doing, and tell you John has been “Super”. He is really enthusiastic, and bringing up his wife, son, and four more Bay View RC members to help him run the whole show. The lake is full, the temps are in the high 70s, and we’re ready to go.
Please set aside Saturday December 11th. This will be the annual meeting of the Moore 24 fleet. As we have in the past, we will meet at 6pm in the Richmond YC race committee room (downstairs).
Beer and hors d'oeuvres will be served. Officers for the new year will be voted upon. And we will honor our winners of the 2010 Roadmasters!
I trust everyone has made it home safely and every Moore is tucked in its trailer spot! For our Pacific Coast Championships, you couldn't have asked for much better weather or location. The breeze was usually up by 10am and not too much snow left on the ground.
Finish details are posted under Results. Our top 5 finishers were:
5. Numa Boa - Mark English/Gilles Combrisson
4. More Cowbell - Kathryn Meyer
3. Gruntled - Simon Winer
2. Banditos - John Kernot
1. Flying Tiger - Vaughn Seifers ...
Heading to Huntington? You might consider having your trailer serviced. I had mine done last week and felt a lot better pulling my Moore back from Stockton yesterday.
I had a very positive experience at Pacific Boat Trailers in Newark - 510.797.1245. Repacked wheel bearings, new seals, checked surge brakes, a new taillight, and a new heavy-duty tongue jack - all for about $220. If you google them, the phone number that comes up is wrong. Go to www.pacifictrailers.com instead.
Hello Moore 24 Fans!
It’s almost the end of the year, and hope you are enjoying the holidays.

1 – Tortuga – Caleb Everett
2 – Paramour – Vikki and Rowan Fennell
3 - Flying Tiger – Vaughn Seifers
4 – Absinthe – Dan Nitake
5 – Mooretician – Peter Schoen/Roe Patterson
Some of the action from the Gorge is featured on the cover of this month's Latitude 38. There's a great write up of the Double Damned race on page 102. Pick-up a copy or check out the online version here: http://www.latitude38.com/eBooks/Sept2009.html
