    NYYC Invitational IC37

    Class rules state reef flags. So if RC determines to fly the flags, all boats reef. All things considered, it’s to make racing as uniform as possible.

    NASS Race to Oxford MD 9/7/19

    The amount of chatter on the radio the last two weekends is disappointing to say at the least. Personally, I find those people constantly on the radio questioning rc to be complete assholes. Badgering people that are volunteers, so that we may do something we enjoy is uncalled for. I hope one day, rc asks what sail number they are and throw them out of the regatta. We don’t always like rc decisions, but show them respect, they don’t have to be there. If you think you can do better volunteer. Otherwise shut up. Could they have shortened the course, yes. Should they, yes. However, it also boggles my mind why the constant need to complain by those on the radio. It’s a distance race, you knew what you signed up for as it was always going to be an all day affair. The party in Oxford is always fun, and I was looking forward to it all day while enjoying my time with friends. We’re privileged to be able to do what we do.

    New Hugo Boss Spotted

    There is a video on the Facebook account of the FB35 Weapon of Choice. Not sure how to load it here, but it looks wicked.

    Donnybrook is back (on the market)

    Last time I heard anyone talk about the boat, it needed a whole lot of work to the keel, structure and the sort. I have also heard stories from the C600 where the crew were just hoping the keel would hold for the race. So it really isn't surprising the price is so low, if the work still needs to be done. Anyone have any other details?

    WTF did they do to this J/125!?

    Does it matter what they did? I say that considering, the two in the classifieds for over $300k. If you bought this one at the listing price, stripped it of the bullshit, you still get the boat at a song if it's in decent shape otherwise.

    Speaking of things they need to fix, they could have at least painted the bow pulpit black too.

    PHRF rating class range. who decides

    One would think, those in charge of the race would notice these things.

    PHRF rating class range. who decides

    It seems to be more on the Club these days with them trying to create racing classes which are even numbers, rather than following a rating rule precisely. You can see races where one boat which normally fell into A1 residing in A2. For instance, the Columbia 32 rates 66 which A1 was always up to 69, for the EYC Boomerang, it was the scratch boat in A2. Although, there is also another anomaly in the Boomerang Race. The Seascape 27 which rated 90 wound up in A1. Not sure how that happened, but nonetheless, still holds water as an example. Another example, AYC WNR, has a boat which rates 108 in phrf 2 (although not normal A0-A2 nomenclature). In accordance with PHRF Ches Bay, http://www.phrfchesbay.org/page/rules/class_splits A2 should be 72-108. If AYC was following the PHRF guidelines, then the 108 would be in PHRF 1 with the boats that rate 72. For Screwpile A1 was -33 - 39, A2 45-69, A3 75-90. Then, there is the silly decision of classes like the 105 which rates 87, always winding up doing the short courses of the event such as EYC Boomerang, when there are slower boats doing the long course. So ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    suck my balls

    I still cant believe the fuss people have over language. Who cares. Everyone has a different vocabulary. I could literally blast you using "proper" language and words above most peoples common lexicon, but that would be fine because it wasn't curse words. That is insane. It is the same with the people who are grammar police. Question 1, did you understand what the person said, even if it wasn't grammatically correct? Yes, than who cares. There are far more important things to actually give a damn about, and these two are not them.
