    Settle this for me : PHRF TOD

    I concur. I have a lot of respect for volunteers, and do not agree with any of the kicking comments. It's hard enough to get people to get involved. I just wanted to get the collective wisdom to settle a civilized discussion we had on the issue.

    Not a phrf committee issue. Just an event ran based on phrf rules.
  3. All right folks. Can you bring your collective wisdom to settle this for me. Club regatta using TOD handicap. On a 6.54 nm race. The race manager added 1nm to the calculation of the handicaps because 2 legs were going to be upwind, therefore more distance sailed because of tacking. Told him he was wrong, because the TOD handicap already takes that into account. He did not want to hear anything about it. What say you.

    well this is bullshit

    You're an idiot. Go sail if it's that important to you. I'm in Quebec. Your lack of judgement won't have any impact on me. Just don't come crying on this platform when a month from now you're hooked on a respirator...
  5. I concur. Weak comparison. Just trying to get the point across that the crew enable us to race. Without crew, no race. Our club adopted this crew membership bullshit thing a few years back and it totally destroyed a 5 crew OD fleet. Don't charge crews memberships. It's wrong on multiple levels.
  6. does your bike mecano pay for an entry fee at a race? does your racquet stringer pay for a squash club membership? does your daddy pay for membership at the country club? Get it?
  7. Not allowed in Star class events. Pumping shows up in the Star Sailors League events only which are outside the scope of the Star Class.

    Definately not fast. Guess the crew was to busy and forgot to add some ram.

    Not sure when they started implenting this rule, but all boats need to have a positive buoyancy test performed and certified. Buoyancy is assured via air tight tanks all around the boat.

    Here's a shot from the Burton Spars FB page. Apparently taken at the gybe mark.

    J-24 Worlds Results 2019

    The tactician welling at the other crew is a Boy in Blue. He's more interested in justifying his $2000 a day fee to the skipper than actually following the RRS. Pathetic...

    I came to the same conclusion. No foul.
  14. Not completely convinced about your income job security statement...Anyways, what's wrong with watching keelboat racing fade? Dinghy racing is cheaper, requires less logistics, and is more athletic...nothing wrong with that...

    J/24 Worlds- predictions?

    Let's see if the boys in blue will try to screw him over on the last day (just like they did to a LONGGGGGTIME client at the TO worlds), just to have one of their pros win the regatta...
