Spirit of Admiralty
This event type is chosen for races.
Starting in 2010, SEAS is sponsoring a series of races around Admiralty Island, called the Admiralty Island Rally, or AIR. AIR will alternate years with the Spirit of Admiralty, so AIR will be held in even numbered years while Spirit of Admiralty will be held in odd numbered years.
AIR is a unique race held in some of the most incredible country in the world. It consists of 6 legs, and a couple of days spent in Warm Springs Bay. The legs are:
SEAS is a member of PHRF-NW. This means that we have to give boats ratings, so we have to measure sails. SEAS Handicapper, Brian Lieb, will be present to take measurements.
If you are a member and want to race, bring your sails to Glacier Valley Elementary School this Sunday at 1000.
The last races of the season had the greatest turnout - 12 boats! Despite a gloomy forecast (mostly miserable, with occasional bouts of truly awful) Saturday actually surprised everyone. At the start, light winds prevailed as the fleet slowly tacked down the channel from the Mayflower Island starting line. By the time the fleet got to Marmion Island, the wind had picked up considerably.
