Hello all Mercury Class members!

WOW, it’s already October! Where has all the racing been? Oh ya, it’s the year of the Covid!

It’s been a few months since I’ve given any kind of an update, so here’s what has been going on and what is scheduled to go on!

Huntington Lake: Doug Baird won the High Sierra……Jim Bradley and crew did a fantastic job putting on the races under the circumstances!

National Championships, CBYC: Chris Raab and Kenny Dair won their 8th Class Championship……Mike Burch and the Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club did a fantastic job of putting on a really good regatta. Due to the restrictions imposed by the state CBYC was not able to hold a dinner for us, so Mike arranged for BBQ brought in and cooked in the boat yard for the annual dinner. All turned out great!

The LAYC again hosted the PPC for the Mercury Fleet.

You can view the full LAYC race report here.

Photos of the event can be viewed here.

The Mercury Class 2020 National Championships were held at Cabrillo Beach Yacht Club this past weekend.
Despite the current situation with Covid 19 and the restrictions we are under here in California, the regatta was a big success! The L.A. fleet did a wonderful job of staying within the guidelines required by the state for social distancing and large group gatherings.

The Mercury Class, after a lot of planning on how to handle the Corona virus, held a 3 race regatta over the weekend. Prior to racing, the class developed a virus safety plan which was reviewed by the US Forest Service before they granted this year's permit. Social distancing was of primary concern so the skippers meeting was done on VHS radio.  The RC was moved from the beach to a boat off shore and the annual Saturday night Tri-Tip dinner was cancelled.

Hello all Mercury class members near and far!

Not much to update since there has been no racing as of late……That being said, it sounds as if things might be starting to open up in the Bay Area. Moving into the first part of May, Cinco De Mayo or the ROC / SB Spring Regatta has been canceled, as well as Homecoming Nor Cal # 3 and So Cal # 3.

The Coronado Yacht Club still has the Small Boat Regatta set for June 13th and 14th. I will get confirmation if the event is still go. If things open up on the 15th of May for the state, I imagine they would still put the race on. Also, as of this update there is still no word on Huntington Lake……Seems there will be plenty of water, but nothing official yet.

Hello once again all Mercury Class members!

Been a few months, so here’s a brief class update………..

Strange times we are living in right now with the whole COVID 19 (Corona Virus) world pandemic. I first want to address the class sailing schedule…..that being said, some yacht clubs are completely shut down and some are on limited schedules but still conducting regattas or sailing events. One such club is the Encinal Yacht Club who host our NorCal series. They will still run our upcoming races on April 4th…….however, keep an eye on your email for any last minute updates or any changes. As for the rest of our racing schedule, we’ll just have to see what comes about in the next couple weeks. It is important that we make sure if the class is to change or cancel any up coming racing dates, we need to let the hosting club know in advance (as much as possible) that no Mercurys will be attending. I will leave those decisions up to the local fleets as to what they want to do.

Encinal Yacht Club hosted an 8 boat Mercury fleet to kick off this year's four Saturdays of racing to determine who will be the 2020 NorCal champion.  The threat of rain in the morning may have discouraged a couple of sailors from coming out but for those who did, by the 12:30 start time the weather was perfect.  Breeze was a steady 5 to 7 knots with puff after puff rolling down the Estuary. Shifty was the word of the day but the shifts lead to a lot of position changes making for great racing for everyone.

Last weekend a lucky few got to sail in beautiful sailing weather conditions in "Hurricane Gulch" out of San Pedro. Cabrillio Beach YC hosted the regatta  and were, as always welcoming.
