Eight Millies competed in the 2017 Millimeter National Regatta at the Encinal YC  on the Alameda estuary in San Francisco Bay. Saturday, there was a nice breeze,  and it was mainly west with some northerly shifts and very warm. The velocity was a few light spots up to about 8 Knts. All scheduled six races were held. Sunday, the wind was a little steadier and a little less velocity  4-5 knots, and shifty ,with fairly smooth water and evan warmer. Nice Millie sailing.

 The six races completed on Saturday  put more pressure for the racers on Sunday. The racing was All Aaron Lee after day one. If eight races were completed, there were two discards. The courses were a sausage finishing on the wind for all the races on day one except race six, which was a windward leeward finishing downwind .The race committee posted a start for Sunday,12 pm, and was able to finish four races. the total series completed the 10 races. The courses were all windward leeward, finishing on the wind.
Rear Commodore Theo Rohr and his wife Lisa did all the race committee work, setting excellent buoy location, no general recalls, the scoring and the trophy presentation. They did it all and many thanks to both of them
Aaron Lee won the Gold Fleet and The Steve Taylor Perpetual Trophy. Aaron won seven races and several by well over a minute. Randy Smith, last years champ finished second.Chris Davis was third, improving over last year.
Silver Fleet was won by Paul Turner with Bob Scholl second. The entire fleet is split into Gold and Silver groups after five races. 
Many Thanks to the Encinal YC for putting on the regatta.
