Redwood City Wednesday Evening Beer Can Racing

I keep my Santana 22 at Redwood City Marina and am planning on sailing Sequoia YC's Wednesday evening beer can races. I’d like to organize a small, informal crew list of people who would be interested in sailing some of these races.  I need 2 crew for each race; already have one who has some spinnaker experience.

To properly set expectations – I’m not an ultra-competitive racer but am looking to push ourselves and sail to the best of our abilities – so it’s not a cruise.  Likewise, it is a pursuit race format and we'll be racing against larger yachts – even with the rating we'll be nearer the back than the front of the fleet – so it's not too serious!

The Santana 22 is a small boat so you need to be nimble to climb quickly in & out of the cockpit and onto the rail. You should be ok being on the rail and doing foredeck work to rig the jib pole. It’s a wet boat (especially on the rail) so come appropriately dressed for a good soaking!

I’m a spinnaker newbie and am interested in flying it in the right conditions and with experienced crew – so if you’ve got spinnaker experience that’s a bonus.

We’ll meet at 5.00pm on the dock, leave the dock around 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start. Afterwards we’ll head over to the Sequoia YC clubhouse for BBQ and beers.

If you’re interested sign up for the Wait List and I’ll be in contact.

    I enjoy sailing and have crewed before. Not so much into racing as much as recreational sailing. I teach a class on most Wednesday evenings until 5:30 but I'm off from teaching June 11 & 18th. Count me in for those dates. Thanks.
