Where we come together... Harmonic Convergence Trans-Tahoe Race

I'd like to share what my friend Ross Stein, a former BAMA Race Chair, has to say about the Harmonic Convergence. This summer event the multis have an overnighter on the beautiful Emerald Bay, where they anchor with their transoms just kissing the beach. There is a potluck dinner and beach party Thursday evening. Its usually a fast afternoon reach down from the Coast Guard ramp near Tahoe City, and a motor sail back mid-day on Friday. The ramp is an excellent facility. Boats coming to Lake Tahoe... Read More »

Screaching

This is a pro photo from the 2009 Vallejo finish, and we are double-slotting with the screach in about 15 kts of breeze, cracked off about 10-15° from a beat.

But this is the view you never get of your... Read More »
