BY BARBARA DRAKE, FLEET CAPTAIN

SS-SSS is supposed to be a social series.  That is a tongue in cheek remark because if you are sitting on the Lily E during a start you are aware that it is a competitive series.  We have had a pretty stable race committee group for many years, but things change and this year the A-team had to find two new members.  I am very happy that Craig Depies and Karen Stevens have decided to join us.  I have been doing race committee for 32 years.  I hope to be able to continue in this capacity, but one never knows.  We need more people to take an interest in this phase of Sail-Race and serve on the race committee.   

Traditionally we have been able to resolve a lot of problems at the bar following the race.  If it is possible, please come up with a solution other than protest.  In the case of damage from a collision, I know this is not possible.  However, I hope this can continue and that we do not get so competitive that we lose all sense of what the Wednesday night series was designed to accomplish………..having fun on the Lake. 

Numbers on the jib and spinnaker are important and have to be there and correspond to the number on the main.  When you are sailing at us to the finish line with a Jib and main, we usually do not see the main till you have finished.  This can cause a lot of confusion and mistakes.  One of the race committee crew is always the spotter and they give me the numbers of the boats in the order in which they think they will finish.  If I do not have this information it can get very confusing when several boats are finishing within seconds and I have to record both the sail number and the time.  So if you want a finish, get your correct numbers on the jib and spinnaker!

We did manage to get in 2 races during the Spring Series.   If you have not gotten your flag, please see me before, or after the race, so I am not carrying them around all season.  The results of those races are listed below.
