    Kudos to SSC for getting their regatta notices out nice and early. Sounds like a gig to me. I know me and "Byte Me!" will be in attendance. E tu? https://www.regattanetwork.com/event/20318 https://www.regattanetwork.com/event/20319

    Is this gay?

    On the weight room stuff looks gay...but, hey, we're foiling, why not pumping? I guess Hans and Franz would think it's gay https://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/pumping-up-with-hans-and-franz/n10121

    Can you make a "PHRF cheater"?

    We had a local hack back in the 80s who took everything he entered. His 35' was rated 90 when the national average was 78. How did that happen you ask? PHRF politics. He was well loved by the in crowd and claimed his boat had the keel whacked off 18" to fit our shallow bay. Since the boat never left the water except for late night bottom jobs the claim modification could never be confirmed. He sold the boat and had it pulled well after dark on a Sunday night and shipped well outta state. That's when I decided one-design was the WTG. -been there, seen that

    Indeed I've already received messages to that effect. Most of my dingy needs will be satisfied locally so I'm picking my travel dates sparingly and to event that have good history of actually happening. The Seabrook and Austin events directly conflict, but so does Seabrook and Houston HOOD. Guess we'll just have to find common ground. Back to the old question, for overall is it a set number of specific regattas or a minimum number of any regattas? We need to discuss cuz the season's here and my boat's ready.

    The 5.70 is claimed bullet-proof. I know they held a championship in a fleet of them, I believe at Richmond YC, this summer and its was a kluster-fck as parts broke left and right. They're getting old and no builder, so make friends with your local boat repair / machinist dudes.
