    Spectator boats for Newport in-port race

    You can get pretty close - there are stake boats with yellow flags that you can get as close as they are but not inside the boundary that they create all along the west side of the course. They are blocking spectators from going between the course and Ft Adams.

    VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    You might want to check with someone who is actually involved.

    Yes I am sure. And yes they do monitor it all. EDIT : you can get all the pertinent information in the SI's go to section 27.

    You really shouldn't talk about things you know nothing about. Not possible to police communication ........that is exactly what they do.

    If you have the dollars go right ahead. Else get Musk involved with sailing.

    Seismic shift. Maybe more about the tax money that states are taking in that have legalized it.

    Closed Gate on race course

    If you are doing W/L just put the start/finish at the bottom below the leeward mark. It's not rocket science here folks. Less marks to move if there is a significant shift.

    They are adults and are entitled to make their own decisions.

    VOR Man Overboard

    What conspiracy theory - Have you ever been offshore in waves and wind? Look at the amount of water they get hit with and please tell me how an auto inflate would work when getting swept or thrown overboard and not when taking waves over your head? Depending on conditions I know many people that disengage the auto part and convert to manual.

    VOR Man Overboard

    Exactly and they are constantly being hit by water, bet the auto inflate was disabled or they would have run out of cartridges a long time ago.

    If he was unconscious how did it inflate?

    OOOps - you are right. Unless there is a start window as some SIs do.

    To Be Hosed Or Not To Be Hosed

    No one forced them to sail this race. They knew the boat and the dangers before they started. It was their decision to compete. I will repeat what I said in another post - a heart attack, a stroke, even a ruptured appendix to name a few would have resulted in almost the same outcome. There will always be 'dangers' which is what is part of the appeal. If you don't like that don't do or follow the race. But don't dictate what and with what these adults decide to race around the world with. While you are entitled to your opinion - remember that everyone has one ....... You know the rest.
