    TonyfromSheepsheadbay "believe most everyone is using TOT now for quite a few years. It seems you and others are not happy with the HRYRA dues value proposition. If all they are providing is YRALIS ratings, why not just have all the clubs/ members join YRALIS ? Then you get all the other cool stuff that comes with it. Do they follow other YRALIS rules and regulations? Safety equipment, etc? " Dues value proposition. ? Got me. I just do not like having part of my PHRF certificate $$ going to subsidize a party which I only attended once in 25+ years. (1st year). Many years I did not race any HRYRA races but still paid HRYRA dues.. Either I crewed* or did not participate. * J-24 when HRYRA had a J-24 fleet. Best of my knowledge HRYRA follows YRALIS rules and regs .. not sure about non-spinnaker rules. How much to get a PHRF # from YRALIS? Hershey

    General questions for you LIS sailors> 1) Do you use ToT or ToD for scoring? 2) Do you use the wind various correction factors? Or just one for all conditions? I think Eastchester Bay uses 480 for all conditions. I am pretty sure HRYRA uses 550. Last year HRYRA changed over to ToT Hershey

    ??? I have know idea who you are, or where you sail, or what you sail, or how old/young you are, or how intelligent you are .... but you tend to lose control of your emotions some times :-)

    LoHudYRA not sure if this is the same as HRYRA. HRYRA is made up of 6 Yacht Clubs/Sailing associations on the Hudson River from Kingston NY to Nyack. As I said, I only belong to HRYRA because that is how we get our PHRF #s. I am not sure what the "deal" is. Join HRYRA and get a free PHRF#, or get your PHRF# and you are automatically a member of HRYRA . But they cannot be separated.

    *********************************************************************** By the way guys, I crewed a few years on a Colgate 26. Nice boat. Oh yes -- there was an error it that PHRF #. You will notice that in 2008 there was a change. That came about because at my suggestion, that skipper challenge the number. Which he did successfully So George S. no longer works with LIS? Do you miss him? Does HRYRA donate anything to LIS ? I do not go to the HRYRA awards because I do not race the HRYRA circuit. I treat my crew other ways. Like I said the only reason I get a PHRF # is to sail in my club races.

    I am not sure what the arrangement is between HRYRA and LIS --- but did not mean to imply that HRYRA's handicapper was "stealing" from LIS. I believe he is on their "board" --- or was . But LIS # are the ones HRYRA uses. There is a legitimate connection between the two I believe. In the meantime -- SPRING IS HERE. Ignore the snowstorm that is coming tomorrow. Getting ready to make my special bottom paint -- 1 qt. Rust-o-leam and 1 qt. chicken fat. Works great! Never had any rust and the chicken fat attracts the blue crab which clean my bottom. Hershey-

    my my my, someone is upset because I speak the truth. I assure you that $30 is not the issue. The issue is how it is being spent. Why should those who do not attend the awards brunch subsidize the HRYRA members who do .... and their crew ? Just how much went to the subsidizing? How many tickets were subsidized? I sense that is a major portion of the budget cleverly hidden. Hershey So I can race -- yes my 22 ft. Capri against boats which are 30 and 36 ft. long. What a great deal. :-)

    2. Treasurer’s Report  Budget - broke even this year 2. HRYRA Budget  Budget was low at the end of last year  In general we spend more than we bring in o Subsidize the Annual HRYRA Awards Brunch (7 dollars per person) o Pay for Annual HRYRA Awards and Crew glasses for all HRYRA Regattas o Pay for the HRYRA Website ************************************************************************************************************************* I would say that 90%+ of those who who have to get the PHRF certificates do not go to the HRYRA Awards brunch. But only get the PHRF certificate because their club requires one for club racing. Very few sailors race the HRYRA circuit. Why should those sailors who do not race HRYRA have to pay for the others party? Should not subsidize. Budget report NO actual #s. Glasses and Trophies are not big ticket items. Actual cost ? Entrance fees cover awards for individual HRYRA races. Websites are not a big ticket item either. Probably a volunteer maintains it. ***************************************************************************************************

    Yes, I have asked. I belong to HRYRA -- which uses YRALIS PHRF #'s. You have to understand, this is the group that argued with me that a Catalina 25 Tall Mast should have the same # as a standard rig :-) When I questioned the #, the handicapers response was prove to me that I am wrong ( that they should both be the same.). When I showed him a table of all the regions that had both both rated, and only YRALIS/HRYRA had them both rated the same he reluctantly had the error corrected. We get no financial statements. All we get is a PHRF certificate with the number taken from YRALIS . Hershey

    As I said, I would like to see an accounting like most organizations have. Why keep it secret, unless one has something to hide.
