Coming Up

The popular Corinthian Midwinters will be held on January 20-21 and February 17-18. "It's Homecoming at Corinthian Yacht Club," according to http://race.cyc.org/midwin. "Come on back to 'Old School' Midwinter racing. On the tricky waters of San Francisco Bay, with Winter's winds proving as challenging as Sophomore year Algebra, the race does not always go to the swiftest, no, but often to the cleverest." Word. New School: two special divisions. "TwentySomething: LOA of 20-ft to <30-ft, NCPHRF of between 81 to 150; SA_DW/D ratio of >=51, D/WL ratio <=124. And SportBoat30: LOA of 28-ft to 38-ft, NCPHRF rating of between 9 and 81, SA_DW/D ratio >=61, a D/WL ratio <=121, that carry a bow-sprit."

Registration is open for the even more popular Three Bridge Fiasco. Singlehanders and doublehanders can register for the single race on January 27 only, or for the 3BF and SSS membership at the same time. Oakland YC will host the skippers meeting at 1930 on Wednesday, January 24. That day is also the deadline to enter.
