Capri #45 2016 Chesapeake Bay PHRF High Pt Winner

Postby patrick.seidel » Sat Feb 04, 2017 12:47 pm

Our Capri 22, .45, just took the PHRF Chesapeake High Point award for 2016. With new sails and a perfect baltoplate bottom, the boat in less than 10knots of breeze was unstoppable. In less than 6 knots we were taking most of our competition boat for boat. Results:
1st Race to Rock Hall
1st Race to Corsica River (took a drysailed J-88 with a full carbon sail inventory) - they were torqued.
1st Star Spangled Banner Classic
2nd Harbor Cup (sustained 40kt breeze in the Potapsco River)
2nd Race to Mile River
3rd Race to Baltimore
4th Hammond Memorial (solid 25kts)
5th Race to Oxford (15-20kt wind with 3-4ft chop beating for 20NM)

At PHRF of 207 the boat can easily handle other boats from 150sec/mi and up in less than 10kts - both up wind and down.

Thank you for reminding me... its not about the rating, its about the sailor, crew and prep...
Nice work!

its always a pleasure when you can attack faster boats in real time, and not only correct over, but finish before them. Light air warfare is a tricky thing.
