The Hobie Cat folks are having a race called the Shark Feed next weekend on Bodega Bay. They will be launching from Doran beach. We have an open invitation come share the beach.
I will be there next Sunday, the thirteenth. I plan on racing to red and white buoy at the entrance of Tomales bay (marked on charts as buoy "Tb") and back. As the crow flies it is a ten mile trip total for going out and back. Of course conditions will dictate how long the round trip takes.
All I need is one more boat, or at worst I can race against the clock. I propose Le Mons style start( Boats on beach pointed into the bay. Racer are X distance away. Start the race, run to boats and go, go, go)vs a sailing style start with a five minute count down to an on the water start. These are adventure racing machines!! Not simple sailboats.
I see three Classes AI single, TI single, TI double. Use any or all three of the drive options: Sail, pedal, paddle. Bring along the common sense gear. Lets be safe, fun, and fast. in that order. Please RSVP and share the word.
