NYYC Etchells Worlds July 27th Update – Newport, RI

After a Day to Forget, Cunningham Has Two Races to Remember

The best sailors remember every detail of every race. But there are some days on the water that simply have to be forgotten. Day 3 of the 2014 Etchells World Championships, hosted by the New York Yacht Club in association with Sail Newport, was such a day for Jim Cunningham.

After waiting much of the day for a sailable breeze, Cunningham and his team of Jeff Madrigali, Mark Ivey and Bryn Bachman had a strong start and approached the first mark among the top 10 boats in the 95-boat fleet. With the rain pouring down and the breeze lightening, Cunningham’s boat stalled as he tried to sneak it around the first mark and he and his crew could only watch as half the fleet—some 40-odd boats—sailed past. They finished 50th in the race.

Long Beach Race Week – Day 1 Weather Outlook

Long Beach, CA

Courtesy of Mark Michaelson:

Good morning and welcome to Long Beach Race Week. A GALE WARNING is in effect for the coastal waters including Long Beach this morning but is set to expire at 9AM. Winds over the northern Channel Islands vary from 36-41 knots at the moment and that has spun up a coastal eddy in the waters off Long Beach and out to Catalina Island. Winds in the Long Beach area are from 155′ degrees at 7 knots. Winds today should shift to the West in the mid morning and build to 9 knots initially becoming 12 knots. A trough grazed the area last night and is now well into Arizona. It will be partly cloudy early except over Catalina Island which may have spotty fog. Water temps range from 68-70’F. Have fun, stay aboard and enjoy the lively competition. Many thanks to the sponsors, particularly ULLMAN SAILS for helping to make this event possible.
