  1. Another one bites the dust...no surprise though as other events farther into the year have already been cancelled as well https://www.offshoreraceweek.com/ The California Offshore Race Week Organizers - San Diego Yacht Club, Santa Barbara Yacht Club, Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club & Encinal Yacht Club have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 California Offshore Race Week due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As representatives of our Yacht Clubs, we believe in the practice of safety as a way of life offshore. Our position has always been that we can only conduct the race if conditions for competitors and local populations made it safe to do so. After continuing to seek guidance from numerous government and medical advisors, it has become evident there is no longer a timeline allowing our sailors and supporters to prepare for and participate in this offshore race safely. We are heeding the WHO and CDC guidance that stopping the spread of COVID-19 requires the practice of social distancing and self-quarantine immediately. Preparing boats for an offshore race takes time, commitment, and logistics that may expose communities and families unnecessarily. If you have registered for one of the events, your entry fee will be refunded in the next two weeks. We have also considered the possibility of running the 3 events that compromise the California Offshore Race Week separately. However, due to the nature of the event and the unique opportunity to participate in 1, 2 or 3 events, we have decided to cancel the event until 2021. We would like to say thank you to all competitors for their support, encouragement and understanding as we have navigated this unprecedented and uncertain time. We would like to also thank everyone for their past participation in the California Offshore Race Week. We will be back in 2021 with a better than ever event. Finally, I would like to recognize all of the volunteers and yacht clubs that make this event possible.

    "...so we generally sail with the tack line eased. This helps rotate the chute to windward—a good guide is not to ease it more than the height of the pulpit. As the breeze builds, you may trim down the tack line to within a foot of the pole... The key transition downwind is in 9 to 11 knots, learning when you can sail deep and when to keep the boat sailing higher and faster. The tack line on the spinnaker is a good focal point for this: If the tack moves to leeward of vertical, pull the tack line toward the pole; if to weather, ease it out, with a total range of two or three feet.

    Changing fleets after the sailing is done?

    Maybe fair, but not like he's trying to hard to hide it:
