The snipe fleet hosted their annual Herb Shear invitational on May 16th and 17th. This year we mixed things up and held the racing in the ocean instead of the bay, as a warm-up for our upcoming national championship, being held right here at Mission Bay Yacht Club, this August.

With 21 boats registered, the fleet made it's way out of the jettys and into the ocean on Saturday morning with solid breeze. Unfortunately, that breeze was mostly part of the backend of a passing storm that had soaked the area for two days prior and it was leaving San Diego quickly. By race one, it was down to about seven kts from the southwest and pretty serious 5+ ft rollers from the west. The misaligned swell made fast-sailing extremely hard and not throwing up, even harder! But race we did!

The 2014 Carolyn Nute Memorial (and unofficial Halloween) Regatta was another San Diego classic with 22 boats on the water and standard, ideal Socal weather and sailing conditions.

Saturday morning started slow with Mission Bay looking more like a glass table and clocking about zero knots. At just about the exact time that boats started touching into the water, the wind gods changed their mind and ordered up about eight knots of solid breeze.
