Labor Day Races Results

 The final series of SEAS Cup races took place over the Labor Day weekend. With Toison D’Or acting as committee boat, leg one found  Lyric WR, Surprise, Haiku, Tango, Optiminium and Loa’a Nalu on the line at Mayflower Island. Under heavy rain and low visibility the fleet clawed its way down the channel, sailing a course which has been being raced for more than 20 years. With a variable head wind for most of the race, it was a long day of wet challenging sailing. Haiku and Surprise kept close quarters for most of the race. About half a mile north of Pt. Aden, Surprise was able to take the lead when a 20 knot breeze forced Haiku to make a sail change and Surprise just rolled in some of her jib and hung on.


End of Season Party

08/26/2011 - 17:00 to 21:00

Another great sailing season is winding down, so SEAS is sponsoring another great gathering of sailors at Sandy Beach this Friday.

Bring something for the grill and something to share. The Party will get going around 5:00pm with set-up and will end typically around 9 pm.  The clean-up crew gets to finish off the keg.

10 hours of great sailing yet 300 yards short

 The most recent day race was great fun.  The race began with a light air drift up the back side of Douglas to Pt. Hilda.  At the half way point the wind  filled but remained fickle. Lorax a trimaran,  was first to turn followed by Shoeless with Haiku close behind. Loa’a Nalu found a few lucky tacks and was able to catch the leaders on the quick return to Marmion.But as most would predict, getting around Marmion to the finish line proved daunting and Shoreless, Loa’a Nalu and Lorax all scratched late in the evening. “10 hours of great sailing yet 300 yards short”   Haiku, with a masterful display of light air sailing, drifted across the finish line minutes before the 9:00 PM curfew.


First Sailboat Race of 2011!

If Sunday is a harbinger of things to come, 2011 may be the best SEAS year ever.

While the boats motored to Marmion Island for the start of the 2011 racing season, the sun was shining, the wind was blowing northerly, and the crews were getting warmed up.  As they approached Marmion the wind lightened and shifted to southerly, as per usual, but the fleet could see the white caps in Stephen's Passage, just waiting to be sailed.
