PHRF Random Leg –A
By Kenny Cooper
|Class 40 during pre-start maneuvers|
The Random Leg A class was a mix of mostly notable classic California downwind flyers and a few eclectic designs. Final class results were almost the order of fastest to slowest ratings!
Fighting for line honors each race were the two big boys- the ageless & much decorated SC-70 Grand Illusion (scratch boat) and the always speedy Medicine Man (Andrews 63) who proved to be the fastest over the weekend scoring 1st in each of the three races.
With the two big boats way out front, it was the four SC-52’s (Elyxir, Relentless, Triumph and Paranoia) and the Farr 49 Javelin battling for a clean lane each leg, every race. At the end of the weekend Elyxir ended on top of this group, earning the 3rd place in class behind Med Man and GI.
And chasing the 52’s and Javelin was a trio of smaller boats. Of the smaller boats it was J-125 Timeshaver who sailed fast & well enough to end up 7th in the 10 boat class. Rounding out the class was the Antrim Class 40 Yippee Kai Yay and the Farr 40 Wild Thing.
