    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Maybe 20,000 posts ago you could be excused. But seriously? The words Job, Earn and Prepare are complete unknowns to the Rimyth and have no place whatsoever in this thread.

    Rules Question - Shortening the Race

    I thought the OP made a strong case. He was in the advantaged position if all boats had to round the mark as normal, but seriously disadvantaged by bias to the C'tee boat end which only came into play with the shorten course. I'm with Brass. It's time to educate the fleet AND the race management, so that SNAFUS like this don't stunt what is a stong class/fleet building. Stick to the standard RRS and WS advisories and even if you do happen to get it wrong, at least it can be resolved through all avenues right up to WS. Bastardise the rules and you immediately lose this protection and all you end up with is undeducated, 'impossible to resolve' arguments, in bars of yacht/sailing clubs the world over.

    Sail area is not rhe final consideration to going fast(er) At higher speeds drag is the problem, so generally the more wind = smaller sails. The fastest speeds in a Blokart come when using the 2sqm sail!
