What started out to be a day of rain and overcast skies turned out to be a glorious NW autumn day on the water for the participants in this inaugural one design & PHRF seminar.

The group met at Anacortes YC in the morning for a discussion on boat speed and tactics given by the seminar coach Andrew Kerr and then adjourned to the dock to look at rigging and boat handling techniques on Steve Orsini’s S20 “Inferno”.

The afternoon saw the fleet participate in numerous starts and short course races as well as practicing mark roundings. The starts got more & more competitive as teams got more and more into the racing! Afterward the group gathered back at the Anacortes Y.C. to review the on the water video tape and to review the day.

The seminar went very well and we are looking forward to holding a future event in Anacortes.

A big thank you to Steve Orsini and his boat dealership One Design Plus, the Santana 20 Class Association, Mack who assisted with running the races, and Anacortes Y.C. for hosting us.
