Let RCR Find Your Next Boat, or Sell Your Existing One!
What's New? By Tim Finkle: We apologize for not getting a newsletter out last week. We were busy running around getting our J/70 rigged and ready for Charleston Race Week. It was another great event and we learned some more lessons for the playbook. Unfortunately, we had some rainy weather and light winds that made it challenging on and off the water, but we made the best of it. We just got back to Buffalo last night, so I’m catching up this morning from being away from the computer for a week. I managed to write part one of my Charleston RW Report in this issue, see stories section below.
After Charleston, we towed the boat up to Annapolis to drop it off until we come back for the NOOD in two weeks. We left it at Jabin’s Yacht Yard where there is plenty of buzz there getting boats in the water. They are a bit behind in their spring schedule because of the extended winter, so it is all hands on deck in Annapolis.
Before we left for Charleston, we hosted a two night seminar at the Buffalo Yacht club with guest speaker Mike Ingham. Mike did an excellent job and we estimated around 120 people showed up on Friday night and only slightly less on Saturday afternoon. The yacht club was a great host, handling the food and bar and overall setup. We thank those that donated to the BYC Jr Sailing Foundation. We would like to do more of these types of events in the future and we are pleased that the sailing community came out to support it. We had many travel several hours to attend, which was encouraging and proof that this type of event is worthwhile.

Charleston Race Week 2015 Report, Part One: This year’s CRW was the 20th edition of the event in what has grown to be a very well attended regatta and one of the biggest on the east coast. This regatta is run like a business and the amount of volunteers and paid staff it takes to pull it off is impressive. I know it also takes a lot of money and you can see that by the number and type of sponsors they attract. The Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina at Mt Pleasant is a nice venue for the onshore activities and they clearly have a nice formula working there.
All of that said, the actual racing is not the most ideal situation. You have very little space in that harbor between the shipping channel, the island with Castle Pinkney, the rock pile in the middle of the race course, the shallow water near the shore of James Island, and of course the other racing circles on either side. Then, you add the tides pouring in and out of the three rivers providing a very strong current to deal with. The current is so strong that it can trump the wind in many cases. It’s the main focus of the racing for the sailors and the race committee. I like that it’s a different type of regatta in that it provides a lot of unique challenges, but I can see why others may get frustrated and not want to race there. More on that when we get into the racing part later…
This was our third time doing the event on the J/70, though Dad has done a few previous regattas on other boats, having won his class once in the Beneteau 10R. After having 80 boats in our class last year and even slightly more this year, we knew we wanted to attend again. Having figured out the logistics from previous years, it takes less effort to get organized each year. You know who to call or email, where to launch, where to dock, where to stay, etc. We are lucky to have worked out an arrangement with fellow YYC members and J/88 owners, Joe and Jeff Pawlowski, to share a house for the crews on Sullivan’s Island, about a 15-20 minute drive away in a beach town with nice restaurants nearby. It has worked out well and saves us both some money, plus it’s just a lot of fun.
Our week started out by hopping in the truck and towing the boat down to Charleston. My job is to drive the boat so that Dad can sit in the passenger seat and make calls and email from the iPad, afterall we are in our busiest time of year. There is no radio in the truck, well at least I don’t dare turn it on anyway. I listen and we talk about business and make sure to look back to see how “Junior” is doing behind me on the trailer from time to time. My mom came along this time, though I think she may want to fly separately next time. It’s a long drive sitting in the back of a truck, but she’s a trooper for sure.
We arrived on Tuesday and went straight over to James Island YC where we got the mast up and rigged enough before calling it a night, knowing that we wouldn’t launch until Wednesday anyway. When the No-see-um bugs got bad enough, we went into the JIYC club for a beer and were greeted with $2 draught beers. This wasn’t a special, it is always $2 for the premium beers and even $1 for the light beer. Now that is my kind of club! We got to talking to the locals and found out that it is a big fishing and sailing club, equally welcome to join and they have a very strong membership base. We got to talking some more and found out that there are no female members unless you are married into the club. You cannot join as a woman member alone……wow, that certainly caught us by surprise, but we were reminded that we are in the South and that is the way it is at that club.
The following day we went back to the boat, finished the rigging enough to launch and motored across the harbor to the marina where we’d dock for the weekend with all the other J/70s. I spent the rest of the afternoon tuning the boat, cleaning and prepping so that when the crew arrived on Thursday, we’d have the full day to get in a proper practice session.
Sorry, ran out of time this week, more on the actual racing in the next issue….
Here are the results for now:
