Spring Series Week 4 + Overall Results

April 30, 2018 10:08:18 AM EDT

What a great last day of the TRYC Spring Series!  We had 6 races in a puffy 10-18 knot Westerly breeze.  Turner Ryon (winner of the Optimist fleet) gives us a debrief on the day:

Hi I’m Turner Ryon, last weekend I sailed the Sunday Series at Toms River
Yacht Club. Before I get to the water and the day of sailing, I want to talk about the
preparations on land. It was a pretty heavy wind day, on a heavy wind day you need
all your mast sail ties tight because the wind stretches them and the wind will flow
through the gaps if they’re not tight. Also you want your vang very tight on heavy
wind days and tightening the vang is something you have to do before every race.
Then for lighter kids you need to be depowered so you want a loose sprint tension
because it will help you keep the boat flat which is incredibly important. Also when I
depower like that Mike Dowd taught me to tie a third thick sail tie with the wind
pennant to keep your luff tension tight. Last you want a very tight out haul. This is
all very important when preparing for heavy wind sailing and they’re adjustments
you need to make if it gets heavier on the water.
Now for the part we have all been waiting for- on the water. When I was
rigging it was pretty light so I rigged for light wind something that hurt me when we
started sailing. At the skipper’s meeting we were told the lasers will be sailing a
longer windward leeward course and we will be sailing a shorter one. So I got out on
the water and sailed to the course. There I waited until the races began, first went
the lasers, then we moved up to the line. I kept close to the committee boat for as
long as I could then headed down closer to the pin and started. I finished second
that race behind Harrison Hubbard, a great sailor. Then in the second basically the
same thing happened and I got second again. Then in the third race it changed to a
triangle course and I started closer to the pin, tacked over the fleet and was first to
the windward mark, but I got stuck on it because I tacked too close had to spin and
was in seventh. I then brought myself back and rounded the leeward mark in second
as I made my way up I almost won but Harrison out tacked me and I finished
second. Then in the fourth race I had a perfect start and won! The next race though I
was called over and had to round the pin. I was near the back with Harrison who
was also called over, but I rode a lift up and rounded first and ended up winning the
race. In the sixth race, this one was scary. I went for my start and wasn’t the first one
and the person in front of me got stuck on the pin so I was stuck. I was the second to
last one off the starting line and made a huge comeback and got second! Last I would
like to thank Toms River for hosting the series and thank everyone one on the
committee boat. This series always teaches me so much!
