    Manhasset Fall Series

    The only answer to weight limits is what Dreadlocks did a number of years ago when weight limits were instituted. Dreadlocks used to sail with sometimes as many as 12 crew just because the owner felt the more people the more fun. Did not not matter big wind or no wind. A certain J30 protested Dreadlocks at Manhasset Fall. Dread had 10 crew The owner said fine took a DSQ than came out the next day and raced with 5. Crushed the fleet several minutes waiting around the finish line until the rest of the fleet finished. The protester from the previous day sold his boat bought a J105 and was/is very successful. Hustler should throw down. Race with 5 crew and see if it makes a difference. My guess it will not.

    Think about it as a video game spices up the race. Next year they may fly in a few Somalian pirates to add a degree of risk and difficulty to the distance race. Think outside the box.

    Guess it was a good idea to pick the last 2 weeks for this series. Think looking at this weekend for racing would be a bit disconcerting. Glad my boat is on the hard.

    How about some decent size legs tomorrow. I have raced more sub 1 mile legs so far in than series than the total of my 20+ years of sail boat racing. Oh by the way Sailman " the soup is too salty" thats why you don't complain about the food untill you are through eating it. The kitchen staff sometimes react in an inappropriate way. Just my humble opinion.

    MHYC doing a great job. Got 2 good races in on Sat good breeze short legs for the WL athletic crowd and a long race in big breeze that allowed everyone to enjoy a beautiful day without breaking a lot of stuff or hurting or scaring the crew. The shore party was fine, being outside is much better than inside. Drinks and food ( and hot soup) was readily available. Very quick launch service and free moorings. I think all things considered I say Thank You for again offering an opportunity to race in sporty Fall conditions by a very friendly and accommidating YC.

    Time to start thinking about manning up . Disturbing trend of LI boats running home to hide under the porch after American Fall . All the moaning about light air sailing in LIS and than weak turnout for the regatta which consistantly has the biggest breeze every year. Take a chance , break some stuff you have all winter to fix it. Hey I'm just saying WTF.

    Who is snaggletooth

    LHYC awards dinner is actually tomorrow night, Saturday 11-12-11 at Northport YC (Lloyd Harbor's clubhouse is still under contruction). Roy will be there , question is will the Snaggster be there ? Heard tickets are sold out and being scalped on Ebay. Now aren't all you down Sounders who spent all your time racing in the armpit area of LIS wish you would have had the courage to participate in the Race for the Case this Spring and been invited to the awards dinner? Second thought probably would not have made a difference cuz you would not have won anything anyway cuz you would have had to beat the Huntington boats on their home field....just not going to happen.
