    Richie Stearns and Skyway have collaborated and created a new event for Circus J/DAY Kinda mini J-Fest run by the racers. Columbia will provide the RC and a dock for the afterparty, but all booze will be BYOB + Goose. Race day is June 29, a week after the mini Mac to Waukegan. Nobody in his right mind is doing Queens Cup this year anyway and Michigan City an back race is too far for a J/30. NOR is up on Yachtscoring. Entry fee $55, which will buy you absolutely nothing, except a decent RC. I'm sure that between myself, 5 Degrees and Blubber we can fuck up any 55 dollar regatta without even trying http://www.yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=790

    Ah well, I guess we lost the bag overboard. Let's give the Elinor Rigby a break this year. They are all new to racing, first trying steps. So rather than giving them crap, encourage them, talk to them next time you see them, make them stay. They made good strides forward in the NOOD

    If he wants to win he pretty much has to show up Leg 9. Leg 9 is mandatory, meaning the score will count for everybody. I win leg 9 and Skidmark stays home, I'll pass him in the standing. On other not related matters, Raven will race tomorrow in the Hobelman, but that is it for the season (likely). Nice day out there today, wind went from 160 at 11Am to 240 by 2PM and velocity was anything between 2knt to 20knt. interesting day for the RC

    Volvo SA Area III Cup Update All have not finished Leg 5 yet, but I decided to update our scores anyway for those who have finished. The series has added a few more boats since last. The official Volvo game scorer has a tie for first place in Leg 5. Both Skidmarks and prettyhatemachine finished in 17d22h50m, so I have awarded both a first place. The scores for the bottom half will likely change as the rest of the fleet finishes. TP2 had a daughter delivered during Leg 5 and still took 5th place. Pretty damn good. Tonybowker didn't run aground and Skidmarks never slept, also pretty damn good. Again, note that only those who have finished as of Friday are scored below Standing Yacht Name Leg 1 Leg 2 Leg 3 Leg 4 Leg 5 Leg 6 Total 1 Defiance 2 2 2 3 3 12 2 Skidmarks 9 1 4 1 1 16 3 OffCourse 7 3 1 9 10 30 4 tonybowker 3 5 15 6 4 33 5 prettyhatemachine 14 8 12 2 1 37 6 Turningpoint2 11 7 5 11 5 39 7 USA88 4 12 14 14 6 50 8 Jahazi DNC/16 17 3 8 8 51 9 Balls2yourPartner DNC/16 14 10 5 11 56 10 RonPaul DNC/16 DNC/18 16 4 7 61 11 SoulRebel9 DNC/16 DNC/18 DNC/19 12 9 74

    Does not seem like there will be a problem since the meetings are in early May. Unless they decide to torch some harbor facilities. The G8 and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will hold meetings in Chicago May 19-21 Abe Jacobs 2012/05/20 It is sponsered by the Burnham Park Yacht Club, BPYC; Rescheduled due to G8 conference,Date to be determined The U. S. Coast Guard has asked the Chicago Park District to delay the opening of Burnham Harbor until May 24, 2012. Area 3 is still considering 2 alternatives 1. the Abe Jacobs race will be held during the regular season on a date yet to be determined. This would mean that the some other race would be cancelled and Abe Jacobs would take its place 2. the season would be extended one week the final decision will be taken at next Area 3 meet on 3/14 It is clear that the entire downtown area will be affected by the G8 conference. Everyone is being warned to stay away from the downtown lakefront on that weekend and have emergency contingency plans for operation of any establishment. Movement will be very restricted, despite what is being stated in the press by the authorities. I would not be surprised if both Monroe and DuSable Harbors are affected in a major way with unannounced street closings. Access to Columbia and Chicago Yacht Clubs could also be affected. Streets will be randomly blocked off at unspecified times and protestors will wreak havoc throughout the time of the conference. Getting an entire race committee (or a race crew) down to the boats on time anywhere near the lakefront (including 31st Street) is wishful thinking and ignoring the reality of the situation. I do not think anyone wants to be anywhere near the lakefront downtown for that weekend. Just moving around anywhere downtown including Monroe and DuSable will be miserable.

    It's pretty much a foregone conclusion that the first Area 3 race of the year will not happen. it is on the Saturday of the G8/NATO meeting. We (A3 scheduling committee)are trying to find a replacement date, but it may mean bumping some other race out of the schedule. This is one of the reasons why the Area 3 website is not open yet. There's a lot of other stuff going on with A3 but news will have to wait until official. So if you are planning your yard work, don't plan on an early splash just to go racing that weekend. In the meantime the start of the Volvo leg 4 is immediate. Virtual racing at its finest 170,000 boats

    Went to the PHRF meeting at Weathermark. Michigan City rep said that it has been confirmed that dredging will be done this spring to minimum depth of 13ft. Good for Tri-State. Can't wait to get drunk and party on the MC concrete dock

    the board decided to take December off, so there was no meeting. The January meeting was last week. Nothing new really. The schedule for 2012 was approved and all fleet captains and A3 reps should have a copy. I also uploaded a copy. of more importance is that I am currently in 98th place of 171,300 boats in the Volvo. Boatname is OffCourse after the J24 I raced 30 years ago out of Belmont.
