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.
