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. Let’s not leave the year, however, without congratulating Caleb and crew on Tortuga for their first place finish and outstanding season in the Roadmasters. At our December 12 annual meeting we recognized the achievements of the top five finishers of the year:
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
Nine Moore 24s parlayed the Gorge regatta into the Double Damned race the following weekend. Morgan Larson again took the top spot and set a new course record. Wind speeds hit 40 knots with boat speeds in the high teens. Here is some great video of the race from Rowan sailing on Mooretician.
