Memaloose Island Race Sunday Sept 24th
Author Last Post
Hood River Yacht Club Sailors:
On the Memaloose Island Race the fleet had an encounter with a barge at the Hood River bridge that was generally not handled very well. 
The sailing instructions dictate that commercial traffic has the right of way at all times, and failure to give right of way earns a boat  a DSQ.   When the barge honks 5 or more times, it means that the barge feels that its right of way has not been honored.   One or more DSQs should probably have been handed out on Sunday.

Two things could have gone better. First, the fleet should have done a better job of keeping clear of the barge.  Second, I should have done more enforcement of the rule, or possibly mitigated the situation as it developed.  Next time, I will not be hesitating to throw boats out of the race.

If the barge captains make reports to the Coast Guard that they are having issues with our sailing events, they could make it much more difficult for us to hold events on the river.

Thanks,

Tyler Bech

HRYC Commissioner of Yachting
