The wind and weather at the California Masters this year was perfect.  The sun was shining. The breeze was 8-10 MPH from the West, with a light chop both days, and very little swell.  Even the tide cooperated with a favorable current to take us home from the ocean each afternoon.  The fleet was smaller this year than in the past, with only twenty one competitors, but there was good competition and close racing.  The courses were nice and long and set square to the wind.  On Saturday, Scott Barnard sailed consistently fast and smart, staying mostly to the right hand side of the course, to come in for the day with a lead that would hold up for hte weekend.  Doug Hart crossed the line first in the first race, but OCS'ed, so that set him back.  I sailed pretty consistently on Saturday, as did Dave Leuck,  who always sails very fast on his home track.  But Sunday was a new day, and the first race saw the fleet stood on its head.  Donat-Pierre Luigi was launched in the first race with Mike Eichwald, Jim Christopher, Alejandro Campillo, and Leif Gihbsson all up front at the top mark.  The second race Sunday was all Doug Hart.  While he cruised to a horizon-job, second-thru-tenth were shuffled many times on the last weather leg and final run.   
The California Masters are also known as Nil's regatta; he and the other sailors from Mission Beach YC make everybody feel at home.  The club was jammed on Saturday night, with a wedding party, the laser sailors, some old rock-and-rollers singing in the bar, plus a contignent of power-boaters visiting from San Diego YC on a "cruise-to-nowhere."  It was quite a scene, and everybody had fun after the sun went down.
