Three Buoys Fiasco Race Preview

Three Buoy Fiasco- Seattle, WA (Seattle, WA)- The notoriously fun-loving Sloop Tavern YC in Seattle, WA is hosting the newly famous “Three Buoys Fiasco” race.  Like the San Francisco Bay brothers down south that pioneered the Three Bridge Fiasco, the masterminds in the Pacific Northwest thought that sounded like a great idea.  So, in an ode to the SF Bay friends, the race is devised in a similar, devious fashion- three marks are determined prior to the day’s race based on wind & weather conditions, then once you start, you can choose to round them anyway you want, so long as you go around all three!

Loving the organized chaos will be seven J/Crews from across the region.  Two J/105s are going for it (Jeremy Boynes’ AVALANCHE & Jim Geros’ LAST TANGO), two J/80s are in the mix (Alan’s’ STELLAR J & Lek Dimarucot’s UNDERDOG), Bill Daniel’s J/100 TOURIST will be there, so will be Ulf Georg Gwildis’ J/30 IMPULSIVE and Leo Morales’ beautifully restored J/27 WIZARD.  For more Three Buoy Fiasco sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
