    Calling Raritan or Larchmont(Storm Trisail) members

    So now that that's taken care of....the one thing I'd caution here is to temper your expectations in terms of boat sizes (the J/120 to J/160 mentioned above. At the vast majority buoy racing events on WLIS, the largest boat you're likely to see racing is in the 45-50 ft range. Things trend slightly larger on the distance side but a lot of those boats only do distance races and things very close to home for them All of that being said, there are plenty of clubs with very active racing programs around here. I would use YRALIS (Yacht Racing Association of Long Island Sound) as a resource. The website is and it has a full list of member clubs, the full racing schedule for the region, contact info for various OD fleets, and is home to everything WLIS PHRF related.

    Why do both of the boats pictured have assholes standing tall on the rail looking around? Really can't stand this type of entitled asshole.

    PHRF 125% overlap allowance?

    Speaking only for Western Long Island Sound. there is not an adjustment for wind speed, but there is a distance rating adjustment that CAN be applied. This adjusts the base rating to account for a boat's different performance when reaching versus straight windward / leeward performance.

    BLock Island Race- How to kill it..

    It's Safety at Sea, sure you might not get back to your boat and immediately change the way you're sailing but if you don't come away from your day with some new things to think about and maybe a better sense of all the shit you don't know, you weren't paying attention. Not to's fun. Shooting flares and putting out fires and messing around in life rafts in a pool is fun. I'm with Espo, can we get this conversation back on track and talk about the bell ringer?

    They unwound themselves, apparently it was quite the sight.

    2018 American Yacht Club Spring Series

    Gotta give kudos to the South Course RC. they got 11 races off despite some very shifty conditions. I really didn't think the last race of the series was gonna happen.

    A brief history of instruments/electronics.

    I had just assumed that at the very least, the AC programs were already at that level.

    I know it was just a teaser, but that video was bloody dreadful. It was halfway over before you could ever even see the damn hull. I'm sure the drone pilot is quite pleased though.

    Yeah, the occasional parking ticket is just the cost of doing business.

    Where are there red light cameras around here, I seriously want to know. At least in Manhattan proper I've never seen them but I have seen a given corner camped out with traffic cops ready to hand everyone blocking the box a ticket, especially around the Midtown Tunnel.

    What about the Sailors?

    Wow, really rolling out an ancient sock puppet for this one.

    YRALIS PHRF minutes

    I just wanna go back to the bit where LIS is being used, for free, to create certificates for his boat in another region, presumably because they don't want the huge hassle and expense of administering there own system...and then he's got the stones to challenge the LIS ratings. There's nothing wrong with challenging a rating, it's a good thing, there's even a form for it now, but that's a very shitty fact pattern.

    How close can the sails be? (i.e. the "slot")

    You see, that's what happens when someone deletes the post you're responding to.
