Last Saturday was perfect Millie racing. The wind was shifty, but 6-8 the entire day. We had five races sailing against a good flood tide. It was decided the day before that the weather looks so good, we had to sail. Pete Veasey 99, Pax Davis 214 and Liam O'Flaherty 212 were the participants.
The Nationals are a month away. The next Millie scheduled racing date is Saturday August 14th.
Saturday July 10th 2021
This was a perfect day for Millie racing. Five sailors enjoyed a relative light boat activity day on the estuary.
The sailors were Liam 212, Pax 214, Pete 99, Bob 12, and Paul 52. There were six races and with the flood
tide, there were opportunities. There were some big shifts, the wind was fairly steady.
Saturday July 3rd 2021
Once again an excellent day for racing Millies. The breeze was full of holes and very shifty. The direction
made for excellent weather legs. With the shifts in the wind, we actually had to jibe going downwind.
There were six Millies, Veasey 99, Fruchterman 111, Scholl 12, C Davis 117, Turner 52 and P Davis 214.
There were five races, but not all raced every race as some left early. The finishes were pretty close.
Saturday June 12th 2021
What a beautiful day. Sunny and warm along with a breeze that was a steady 8-10 mostly from
the west with a little north. We had 5 races and Chris Davis won all of them.
The four participants were Pete Veasey 99, Paul Turner 52, Pax Davis 214 and the winner Chris Davis 117.
We will be using the small electric hoist going forward as the manual hoists on the juniors dock will be sold with proceeds going to the club. Please consider donating $40 to the club for the hoist repairs and maintenance if you have not already donated. This means no more pushing boats up the ramp at low tide. A sigh of relief was heard!
Saturday May 29th 2021
The weather forecast was a little high, but six of us gave it try. The puffs were a little strong, so
we raced the first race on mainsail only. After the finish we were all accustomed to the breeze
and then sailed three races full sail. We could not find a good windward /leeward course so the fleet retired.
Fructerman 111, Turner 52, C Davis 117, O'Flaherty 212, Scholl 12 and P Davis 214. were the racers.
Saturday May 15th 2021
The breeze was as we expected, 4-6 with some puffs, but very shifty, like southwest to
northwest. There were five Millies, Turner 52, who won 3 races, Chris Davis 117, Lee 135,
Fruchterman 111 and Pax Davis 214. There were six races and plenty of lucky or unlucky
There was a little mist in the morning, but the sun finished off the day. This was a very good day for Millie racing.
Saturday April 10th 2021
Seven Millies showed up to race on a perfect day. Six races were completed, and there were several different winners. It was a competitive group, Pete Veasey 99, Liam O'Flaherty 212, Paul Turner 52, Chris Davis 117, Bill Fructerman 111, Bob Scholl 12, and Pax Davis 214.
As usual, the courses were all windward-leeward, but severe wind shifts from the northwest and the southwest added to the competition.
Two weeks prior, seven boats competed. The wind that day was a little lighter. After these last 13 months, it was great to get back to some competitive sailing.
Please take note, the dates of the Millimeter Nationals have been changed. The new date is September 4-5.
Saturday November 28th 2020
What a great day, perfect weather, nice breeze, shifts westerly to north-west and the excellent attendance of 9 Millimeters. The five races, taking about 25 minutes each. All races were windward-leeward, but good downwind legs to produce jibing. Hugo Kneft, who purchased Dan's Millie was a new attendee. It was great to have him sailing with us for the first time.
Also racing were Pete Veasey Liam O'flaherty, Arron Lee, Chris Davis, Bob Scholl, Greg Owen, Paul Turner and Pax Davis.
The racing was very competitive and the fleet was pretty compact in their finishes. The movement in the order of finishing also attested to the competitiveness of the fleet.
Saturday October 31st 2020
Halloween was a good day for five Millie racing. The breeze was 4-7 knots and not as shifty as it has been recently. We were able to alter the direction of the windward leeward course, as a result we had good windward legs and the downwind legs forced some jibes in the close contests. The racing was close but as usual Pax was easy to follow. Attending were Turner 52, Veaseyl 99, Scholl 12, C Davis 117 and P Davis 214. Turner and P Davis left after 5 races, the other three had another race. Peter Veasey was a great addition to the fleet and we look forward to Peter tuning his Millimeter #99 with the fleet.
