Online entry for Ullman Sails Long Beach Race Week ends Tuesday at 6 p.m.

June 26, 2013: Ullman Sails Long Beach Race Week goes 3-day weekend
"Race with the champions" is the lure for Ullman Sails Long Beach Race Week
running Friday through Sunday, with the prospect that if you do it often enough

June 29, 2013: Winds of change blow through Ullman Sails LBRW
Challenging wind and the twists and turns on the race course brought some
shuffles in the standings Saturday as Ullman Sails Long Beach Race Week
wound down to the last two races for all classes Sunday.
The West Coast's largest keelboat regatta, co-hosted by the adjacent Long Beach
and Alamitos Bay Yacht Clubs, has 156 boats on three race courses.
The Catalina 37 fleet of 10 charter boats was shaken a bit when Team (Bruce)
Ayres/(Drew) Satariano from Newport Harbor YC slipped from first place to fourth
with 6-8-4 finishes, nine points behind ABYC's Chuck Clay. Two LBYC boats
skippered by David Hood and Scott Mehler/Greg Morse are second and
third---Hood winning all three races in Saturday's brisk 14 knots of southwest

June 30, 2013: Ullman Sails LBRW deals the highs and lows
Ullman Sails Long Beach Race Week brought broken hearts to some but a happy
daze to others in a wild windup to the West Coast's largest keelboat regatta
Sunday, co-hosted by the adjacent Long Beach and Alamitos Bay Yacht Clubs
Daniel Woolery felt the experience both ways, and four of the other 14 class
winners came from behind to prevail on the third and final day---Jay Golison of
ABYC in Viper 640s, David Hood of LBYC in Catalina 37s, Bob Lane of LBYC on
his Medicine Man in Random Leg 1 and Tony Festa of California YC in Open
5.70s. (read full story here)
