At the annual meeting last weekend in Paso Robles, three issues related to measuring were thoroughly discussed. Though the discussion led to no rule changes, it did lead to some adjustment to procedures that all members should take note of.

Hello Mercury Sailors!

The So Cal series only got one Saturday in, but with solid race committee work and 6 races for the day, the future of this series looks bright!

This was the third race day in the series. First race this year without a forecast of rain! A warm perfect day with northwest wind about 8 kts with a few puffs at 14. The shifts were between West and Northwest. As a result the racing was very close with no side of the race course consistently favored. You needed to be on the correct side of the shift where for the most wind.

2018 Cinco de Mayo regatta had a small turnout but great racing conditions. Saturday saw an early morning westerly, 8-12 knots.

2018 Travel Trophy Series has started! George Rosman, MCYRA Chief Measurer from 1961 to 1974, established this event to encourage Mercury owners to travel to regattas.

Hello Mercury Class Members!! Our racing season is off and sailing for 2018!

We were not sure we were going to sail going into the weekend, but no one really wanted to cancel. We raced and what a day! Shifty breeze between 13 and 15 knots primarily from the west. There were 12 Mercs entered. No one side of the course was favored. Winners went on either side, depending where the shifts in the wind sent them.

 2018 Regatta Schedule

Updated January 26, 2018

Considering a weather forecast of rain, hail, lighting with 11 kn wind with puffs to 18 and cold, eight Mercs showed up ready to race. The breeze in the puffs might have hit 11, but most of the day was shifty, light and smooth water. The wind was more from the south. The course after several adjustments was a twice around sausage finishing downwind. That was the course for the five races.

Last year the LA Midwinters at the Cabrillo Beach YC in San Pedro was a little stormy, but this year it was perfect. The warm sun with smooth water and 8 to 12 knot breeze. The first race Saturday was a little light, but then the super racing conditions prevailed.There were 7 races with one discard.

Eleven Mercurys raced the final day of the series. Sunny, 70 plus degrees and a relative smooth water. The breeze got up to 7 kts, but was mostly lower during the day, but subtle shifts. The course was set up off of Lovers Point with a current running towards the ocean.
