The 2015 Flying Scot Atlantic Coast Championships were in New Bern, N.C. and was a great event. A nasty storm came through and cut things short but everyone was okay and it was still a success.  Here is a video from the event produced by NishFuts Productions - thanks to Joe Brake for sharing!

Ben and I decided at the last minute to drive to New Bern, NC, for the Atlantic Coast Championships. We had always wanted to participate in that event, one of only four national events the FSSA sanctions. Plus, we've always wanted to sail at Blackbeard, since it is near Ben's parents' home.

2015 Scots on the Rocks Regatta - Lake Murray Sailing Club, SC


Fleet 158 was pleased to host its 11th annual “Scots on the Rocks” Flying Scot regatta the weekend of September 5th and 6th – 2015.  Eighteen competitors, including one in the Youth Division, came to play in two days of moderate temperatures and spectacular sailing conditions.  

Day one saw fairly consistent breezes averaging around 7 to 8 knots with enough gusts, lulls and oscillations to keep everyone on their toes.  ”Winds were generally out of the northeast with occasional north tossed in to keep our race committee engaged.  Early forecasts of “T” storms kept the committee boat closer to shore with fairly short courses, but none of the bad stuff materialized.  We had three great races and a hungry crowd swarming the club to do justice to cocktails and great Southern pulled pork BBQ from Farm Boys, our local go to guys for such delicacies.

Day two was better!!!  At the 0930 warning signal, winds were pretty steady out of the northeast averaging around 11 knots with plenty of gusts between 15 t0 17 or so.  No threats, so our race management crew set up in open water with some nice long legs to help us shake out the morning cobwebs.  Sailors who spotted the headers and tacked to pick up the lifts early really stretched out to early leads.  Discipline had to be maintained, however, when the headers were in during the lulls.  The patient ones kept moving in the “soft” spots and went for the pressure waves marching down the lake.
