Fall Season Race Committee Signup Ready

The RC signup sheets have been to the new limited fall schedule. Click here to get to the signup sheet. Due to social distancing requirements we are looking to have members sign up for RC with people from their household or social bubble. The boats are too small to adequately social distance for the 3-4 hours typically spent on them. We are also not requiring members to sign up for RC like we normally would. Trying to compel people to come out during these circumstances would be ridiculous. There are quite a few folks that can’t meet the household requirement or are not comfortable traveling to the marina. Lastly members are welcome to sail even if they can’t sign up for RC. Please take a look at your schedule and see if you can sign up for RC this fall.

PRSA Fall Series #8

Great weather two weeks in a row at the end of the fall series is virtually unheard of on the Potomac, but that is what we had for the final fall series race day of 2019!   PRO Frank Gallagher and his RC crew got us 3 nice races in a moderate southerly.  Temps in the mid-50s meant that it wasn’t too chilly to stick around for a post-race BBQ and beer.  What a great way to wrap up the season!

PRSA Fall Series #7

After two weeks of lousy weather we finally had a nice day for racing for PRSA Fall Series #7.  PRO Farley Will and his crew did a great job in taking full advantage of a nice southerly breeze.  After some great racing there was still enough daylight left for a fun BBQ.

PRSA Fall Series #4

We had a beautiful southerly breeze for Fall Series #4, allowing PRO Jim Antonivich and his crew to set a nice long course.  We enjoyed 2 “O3” races and an “O2” race before heading back to shore to relax and grill.

PRSA Fall Series #3

The light and variable easterly breeze that we had for Fall Series #3 certainly made for some challenging sailing, but PRO John VanVoorhis and his crew did a great job to get us as many races as we could before the breeze died and we headed back to shore for some beer and brats.

PRSA Fall Series #1

Although the forecast looked grim and the conditions were light as we arrived at the marina PRO Mike Darrah and his crew took full advantage of the wind that we did have, getting us 3 fun races to start the fall series.
