Jack & Jill / Single-Handed Regatta

By John Bell, CCYC Race Chair

The Jack & Jill and Single-Handed Races sponsored by CCYC were conducted on Saturday, November 4 with fourteen different boats participating. The weather conditions brought scattered rain showers with variable wind conditions. Heavy showers surrounded the Coastal Bend, but weather conditions on the Bay were just tolerable enough to keep the races going. The Single-Handed Race took place Saturday morning followed by the Jack & Jill Race in the afternoon.

Steve Emerson assisted on the Race Committee under the wet and challenging conditions. The Yacht Club Whaler proved to be a very wet Committee boat. The trophy presentation took place Saturday evening at CCYC poolside.

BILL BEST MEMORIAL NIGHT RACE

By John Bell, CCYC Race Chair

The Corpus Christi Yacht Club’s Bill Best Memorial Night Race was held on Saturday, October 28. Sailors were not able to enjoy a full moon, since the race was scheduled later in the month in order to avoid conflict with the very successful Harvest Moon Regatta this year sponsored by the Lakewood Yacht Club. The breeze was steady and shifted to the south-southeast shortly after the start which allowed the competitors a straight shot out to #14 and back with two laps on the course providing for a 25-mile race.

The race concluded before midnight and awards were presented at the Club on Sunday afternoon. TJ Hammack helped on Race Committee, and CCYC Trophy Chairwoman Tammy Hastings helped with the awards presentation.
