    From J/22 HOOD champions Anne Lee & Sean Davis:

    Seven J/22s participated in the recent HOOD Regatta hosted by HYC. Weather conditions varied from no wind, wind, rain & storm. Saturday’s racing started with a very light shifty Southeast wind building to approximately 6 -9 kts. from the South. The fleet was very competitive with boats changing positions at almost every mark rounding, resulting with very close finishes. The day ended with Helms a Lee and Dov’s ‘No Name’ tied for first place.

    Sunday started with almost no wind. A light breeze finally filled from the West and the Race Committee was able to get one race off. Again the wind was very light, shifty and was non-existent the down-wind end of the race. Helms a Lee struck lucky with an occasional puff and floated into first place, with ‘No Name’ in second and Tom Meeh placing third overall in the Bethancourt’s ‘Chicken Dinner’.

    Thanks to the Race Committee for doing a good job and to HYC for the after race food and entertainment.

    If everything works perfectly, the test is not a success. With that in mind our live stream test of this week's Cabo race was a success! Due to the laptop in use we were not able to stream to both YouTube and Facebook at the same time. We did stream to FB, and as a shakedown, experienced some problems, mainly with sound issues. A recording of the FB feed is here.

    It was a fun time, with music piped onto the lake and colorful commentary by Janet Ruder and By Baldridge. One of the many By-isms:

    "The thing about this race is it's like playing roulette - you have to roll the dice..."

    Maybe By is related to Yogi Berra.

    This Saturday's GBCA rum race is sponsored by JBoats Southwest.  Party catered by Marios, and special giveaways from JBoats. And Fleet 6 will award a bottle of rum to the first J/22 to finish (maybe more if we have enough participation).  So put on your old JFest t-shirt and we'll see you Saturday!

    First off, the FWBC circuit regatta this weekend. But if you aren't already on your way there....

    Cabo Series.  How soon they forget.  It's only been 5 weeks since the last Cabo races, but the SIs have not been amended. There was some confusion as to which way to round the leeward mark. There is a link to the SIs on the home page.  Results here.

    Video. More video coverage from White Pelican Productions. See the latest Cabo video here.  (Thankfully the first leeward mark rounding was edited out!) Check Stuart's other videos by selecting Photo/Video from the menu.

    It was a beautiful weekend at Austin Yacht Club for J22 SW District Circuit #3. Good weather, good wind, great hospitality, great food and drink, and awesome racing!  Fifteen boats were in attendance, four from Fleet 6.  It was close racing going into the last race, only 3 points separated the top 4 finishers. Doug Weakly, from Corpus Christy, secured the narrow victory, Nataleigh Perez, from Houston, was a close 2nd, Tom Meeh, Seabrook, won the tiebreaker for 3rd, Terry Schertz, Austin, took 4th, and Dov Kivlovitz, Seabrook, claimed 5th.  Congratulations Doug and crew! And thanks to all who joined the fun at AYC!

    Don’t miss SW Circuit #4 at Fort Worth Boat Club, June 2-3!
