Wednesday Night Race 2016

Its been a long standing tradition at Miramar to host Wednesday night races for Ensign class boats, fleet 21. However, as our Ensign boats are becoming more and more customized; some has roller furling - some don't, some has outboard - some don't, sails are all different shapes and age. So, it's been decided to host these Wednesday night races for all boats close to Ensign class. Thus, sometimes you see C&C25 'ELKA' or Colgate 24 on the starting line. Still, these races are fun and winners are awarded with prizes.

Race Committee Report

2016 Wednesday night series are over and the winners are:

  • 1st place - SPLASH - Skipper Rich Lubell

  • 2nd place - CELEST - Skipper Leon Paley

  • 3nd place - ALLY CAT - Skipper Alison Schonfeld

With only two canceled races the attendance was much better than previous years with maximum 9 boats racing, which constituted the bulk of 21st Fleet. Kudos to the winners and Let's the Fall series begin; the first race of the fall series start on Saturday August 20th, 2016.
