Shields races – December 5th

Last week RL didn’t allow me to host our weekly Shields races, but we were back yesterday to “close” November series (I am thinkg in doing 2, maybe 3, more races in Zindra and join them in November series. For next year, I am thinking in many alternatives, as so many YCs and people offered me a place to keep going.

Back to Shields races, we had a small fleet yesterday, as Juicy’s boat refused to work. Just Paul, Moon and little me in Ursula Bay, racing Hotlaps and SOL courses. In Hotlaps Paul had issues losing steering and abandoned the race, and Moon wasn’t recognised by the line in the start, having his total time listed as “start time”.

Hotlaps Race Results:
1: moonglownight Resident IDMOON — not Finished
2: LucyInTheSky Afarensis IDLUCY — 00:13:28
3: xPaulx Paine IDXP1 — not Finished

Lap Times:
LucyInTheSky Afarensis IDLUCY — Start: 00:00:05 — Last lap: 00:13:23
xPaulx Paine IDXP1 — Start: 00:00:03 — Last lap: not finished
moonglownight Resident IDMOON — Start: 00:13:25 — Last lap: not finished

In second race, the stupid RD (me) forgot to set line as unidirectional, as a result Moon went through line when going to last line and this was counted as his race time. Resul adjusted manually.

SOL Race Results:
1: xPaulx Paine IDXP1 — 00:12:23
2: moonglownight Resident IDMOON — (00:10:19)
3: LucyInTheSky Afarensis IDLUCY — 00:12:58

  1. “so many YCs and people offered me a place to keep going.”

    They need strong and reliable RDs who are known for directing races since a long time and function “like clockwork”. You’ve proven yourself as worthy of the task! TrYC RDs are rock stars and you are the crazy Shields lady of SL! Of course every other club wants to have you and can count themselves lucky if you agree to do your races from their lines, Lu.

    “Juicy’s boat refused to work.” “Paul had issues losing steering and abandoned the race, and Moon wasn’t recognised by the line”

    That’s the problem with racing in Zindra: You’re always sailing on someone’s used and dirty condoms. Those landlubbering sex maniacs can really fuk you up. 😮
