    Manhasset Fall Series

    Where do these people get this holier than thou shit from? You go get Cedar Point to run a big boat fall series. Go ahead and try. Do you have any idea how many hours Sue Miller has put for you guys? Jesus Fucking Christ. I'm sorry this isn't up to snuff for you. Maybe you can run the event for everyone else to sail in. Good luck finding judges. You better look for them now, because they're all getting booked up for 2015 already. I've had it. I'm going sailing. You just lost your weather mark boat for any upcoming Fall Series. Have fun playing with yourself. As I stated a few pages back, I haven't done this event in a few years with good reason. I have no doubt that the volunteers at MBYC put a lot of effort into running this event, but in the end the event gets hurt by mishandled protests and inexperience in race management. I think the entire MBYC committee would benefit from some of the US Sailing training courses. I do think that a Fall event at Cedar Point would be more interesting to a lot of people, I'm not a member of that club so I'm not in a position to organize anything, just stating my biased opinion. I've never had a good experience racing at MBYC, ever since I was a junior sailor in WLIS I've felt they run mediocre races and the membership generally doesn't want the competitors on the club grounds during the event. Again, this is my opinion, but I find it to be an extremely unfriendly place and would rather spend my time raking leaves those two weekends. I don't think my critical comments are any reason for you to drop your mark boat duties, I'm sure there are many people who are grateful for your work. Take a deep breath, step away from the bullshit for a second, and realize that there may be a hint of validity in my comments. No one wants to deal with this sort of shit fight just to win a silver plated tray. GFYM.

    Another County heard from. What they had was a hearing. Every protest hearing begins with a validity review. The protest was about PHRF rules. Just spitballing here, but my guess is they were going to need to talk to the PHRF Committee about the relevant rules. And guessing a bit more, the PHRF Committee wasn't available at the time. Are you really suggesting that they should have convened a protest hearing at 8:30 on Saturday morning? I'm terribly sorry that the situation was BS to you. We will try to serve you better next time. Go drink some more. Perhaps some of the folks on the protest committee should drink a little less. Especially while conducting "validity hearings" and othe protest committee business.

    I heard rumors that the protest hearing was postponed. It's a good thing YRALIS did the Moosehead awards already. MBYC should have won them all for the way they handled this situation. From accepting the protest six days late to holding a bullshit validity hearing on the last day of the regatta. And they want to know why the Fall Series is struggling to survive...

    Isn't espo being thrown out? Him and pitman are very quiet on here. Maybe we should check facebook and see what Neil is up too Why would he get thrown out?Your a newbie and specifically went to this thread so why don't you share why you care? I don't sail any more because of health reasons but I still keep my eyes on the game. I really don't care what the result of this is but from what I can gather the dominant boat could get tossed because the protest committee listened to a protest that they shouldn't have. That would be a travesty and could potentially hurt a regatta that's already struggling.

    I heard it from someone who heard it from someone else that Smokin J protested Hustler. I didn't see any indication of that on Yachtscoring. What's the story behind this? Any truth to it?
