    never fuckin' mind

    Licensed to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. A Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.

    Older well known IOR Boats

    The first Infinity was a Holland 40. Had the B&R Rig, tubular construction, etc. Here's the ad for her: Yachting - Google Books.html

    Infinity too. A sister to Regardless? I can only find a shot of the 1983 Holland 47 version of Infinity, a beautiful look, but no where near as successful. A Larry Moran photo:

    Manhasset Fall Series

    They have a J105 division because that is who registered for the event. There are relatively few members who actually participate in the event. That has not changed much over the years, or at least not any more than at any other club you can pick out on LIS, or anywhere really. Their biggest one-design fleet is the Sonar, though that too has dwindled over the years. In the 1970's we used to get 10-20 Etchells, Shields, Resolutes, MBO's, Ensigns, Rhodes 19's, Knickerbockers, Thistles, and Flying Juniors every weekend. Those days are gone for sure. So in that comparison, much has changed. The big boat racing has dwindled too, but that is true throughout the sport, not because the demographics of the membership at the host Club has changed. Not to sound like a complete neophyte, but doesn't a YC traditionally sponsor races for boats that at least comprise a decent portion of its membership? You can read about the genesis of this event on the Manhasset Bay site. It was all started by John Thomson, Jr. who certainly was a big boat sailor - he did everything on earth pretty much in Infinity.

    The implication here is that the distance race is usually/traditionally the second Saturday... is that correct? Its our first time at this event - trying to gauge what to expect. Any other nuggets of wisdom? Tack in the headers.
