Kattack up in the Stars…

Jerome

Yesterday, we had a surprise visit from Rick Peters who won the 2009 Star World Championship. Rick is a great guy, always a smile on his face and plenty of things to talk about. This year, Rick is getting more involved with the Star fleet and wants to bring some excitements during the Star events. California Yacht Club is running the Star North American Championship in August and with 30-40 boats, we can expect some good action on the water. Rick inquired about Kattack, and as the rep for this racing tracking device, we talked about the possibility to run Kattack during the Star North American this Summer.

Kattack now offers live tracking so everyone will be able to follow the race, LIVE from their home computer!Races can also be replayed later at anytime after the races.

We will keep you in the loop and see what the Star Class decides for this event.

Thanks Rick for stopping by and congratulations again on your World Champion title…hope you will defend it in 2010!

Berger # 2 Race – First Place on the Open 6.50

Jerome

With no wind during the first race of the Berger series, we were looking forward for a second chance to shine aboard Chupacabra, our Open 6.50. The forecast that morning was wind from SSE, 7-9 knots, not ideal conditions for this race but good enough to splash the boat and go play. (more…)
