The 4th Annual Anchorage Cup was held on June 19 under overcast skies with some light drizzle. However this didn’t deter seven members from competing.

The wind was light to medium and fluky at times. The starts were hotly contested and the racing was keen. It was a pleasure to watch and gave the small but enthusiastic crowd of spectators plenty to cheer about. Clint Underwood, once again, showed his mastery of the boat while Peter Johnson took second place. Our newcomer, 13-year-old Thane Barta, was in the mix from the first race, took one bullet, and placed third overall.

The barbecue that followed, held in brilliant sunshine, was great. Thanks to all those who attended and brought dishes. Special thanks to the home made cookie baker. And thanks to Greg Barta for the photos that are posted on our web site.

Laguna Lake Model Yacht Club hosted the Region 6 championship regatta on May 14th. The weather was ideal with a steady 10 mph wind in the morning and stronger 12-15 mph with higher gusts in the afternoon. It was challenging at times but all the 13 entrants seemed to have a good time and we did not suffer too many gear problems.

Steve Toschi built a commanding lead in the morning winning 5 of the 8 races and sailed consistently in the afternoon to take 1st place. The other positions were hotly contested and the scores were close with 5 other competitors winning at least one race. Click here to see the complete results.

On two perfect sailing days with sunny skies and temps in the mid 70s, 13 sailors entered the 2011 CR 914 Midwinter regatta. With the excellent management of the PRO Tony Gonsalvez, who mastered the the first day of races and did an even greater task of teaching our alternate race committee (Virginia Russell and Bobby Lawrence with assistance from Vanessa Flebbe) who ran the second day of racing, 26 races were sailed in winds of 8 to 10mph, with sometimes down to 5mph, but basically it was a pretty steady condition.

The winner was experienced CR 914 sailor Rick Martin, followed by Christian Flebbe, Fred Deutsch and Chris Hughes. Seven different sailors won at least one race, so that the competition was very close and many times won at the first mark by who was able to stay out of the pack and get free wind.
