    Gee Lifesaver, I didn't write the TCC rules. I'm just trying to keep it alive. I wonder why at times especially with your fine helpful responses. Harpoonette and I have discussed just letting it die a good death. It's been around for probably close to 20 years now. The TCC has had it's up's and downs for sure. I don't know the origins/reasoning behind the sail one boat, score one boat rule. but I am thinking that it is because some people have/had a good wardrobe of boats. So at this light air venue I'll sail my Thistle, Johnson 18, AC or MC scow and when I go to Seabrook and it is rough as a cob and heavy air I'll get out the Contender or whatever boat I have that handles chop better. I've also been informed that there used to be a 24 hour rule is which all excuses as to why you didn't do well had to be registered when they had the Yahoo TCC group up and running. Fishingmickey

    Nothing to report Tortuga. Weather ruled the days. Thunderstorms both days. Fishingmickey

    Well it looks like we might have a fleet of maybe ten if both the Aero and Finn join in. A Dolphin 17 has joined the fray. Fishingmickey

    Woohoo! Looks like we have seven boats so far for Gov Cup this weekend. Should be pretty interesting. Three Evo's, Harpoon 5.2, Thistle *2592, Contender and a Catalina 16.5. Interesting combination of old fast boats and new fast boats. Fishingmickey

    Hello Lifesave! The 79.1 you are correct is for a IC. What's your opinion for a AC? Is it faster then a IC? Maybe not the new rules IC's that you raced against at HPDO some years back. That 79.1 rating is from way back as you well know. Even before the new rules IC's were being built or just coming out. Nothing has changed that I am aware of regarding the Portsmouth numbers on US Sailings web site. Do we want to take the rating for the AC from RYA portsmouth numbers and extrapolate? I found a 870 rating for the AC verses 905 for the IC. FM
