SPSA December Report

Hey Sailors,

We have finished up the Fall Season of our SPSA Series and held our last 2021 Board Meeting.  That’s it for SPSA in 2021.  2022 will start out at a furious pace with 3 events in January.  Read all about the news and coming events below.

Fall Season Races 7 & 8
  • Grant Dumas did a nice job for us as our Race Committee.  It’s inspiring to seen a one person RC handle all aspects of the races so smoothly.
  • Light but steady winds prevailed, much better than the predicted forecast.  George Lewis in a Sailing Center Sonar took a 2nd and a 1st to win the Cruising Class liquid trophy for the day.  Tack Tick added another bottle to their cabinet.
  • Complete results for the Season races can be viewed on the SPSA web site.  http://spsa.us/  Please consider the totals preliminary until we verify the the standings after throwouts and Race Committee credits.  You’ll find the scoring rules in the SIs.
