The weather forecast had 12-13 knots of wind with puffs close to 20 with some rain. It never happened.
The course was across the estuary twice around, finishing downwind. Each race took over 20 minutes. The puffy shifts 
made for some good racing. Twelve Mercs raced in this opening of the NORCAL Series.

With all this rainy weather, the Cabrillo Beach YC was able to run a two day regatta. Several other clubs cancelled their regattas.There were three races on Saturday and three on Sunday.

With a MCYRA class emblem decal! Thanks to Larry Nelson, MCYRA VP, vinyl class emblem window stickers are now available. 

Order one for each of your vehicles and give one to your crew member.

Thanks to a lot of work by our inland sailors, Pat Bradley, Peter Baldwin and others, Huntington was filled with plenty of water for the annual Huntington Lake Regatta. The lake also hosted the Mercury Class Championship Regatta. With twenty nine entries Huntington Lake finally seemed happy again, it’s longest standing sailing class had returned to celebrate and compete.

Here is a great idea from Larry Nelson, MCYRA VP, and owner of #548.  Each yacht club has newsletter either printed and/or online. The Mercury Class would benefit if an occasional bit of news or even a picture where included in various class member’s newsletters.

Close call. I was putting my mast away after the class championships in Alameda.  A terminal for one of the upper shrouds simply fell off in my hand. Another mishap happened to a top skipper when his main sheet broke in the middle while approaching the weather mark. In both cases the gear has been replaced but the lesson remains.

The MCYRA Executive Committee approved for 2016 a trial period for competitors to use a GPS device to record courses sailed while racing. Off the water skipper's can analyze and share the GPS data.  In GPS speak this is creating “track” of the course you sailed including direction, speed and time.
