    Who were your mentors early in your career? What were the fundamental things they taught you?

    what once was

    This place has always been a combo of the yacht club and starwars bar. The depth and breadth of knowledge here is both amazing and helpful. I’ve learned a lot about things, both in sailing and life, that otherwise would take years to know because of the immediacy of feedback. There actually seem to be less assholes than in the past, and for the few of them the ignore function works well.

    Dumb Drug Dealers

    While this case is in Colorado, the dude who got busted is from San Diego. Scott Pack is a bit of a sailor too, I know back in the day he won the Star Western Hemisphere Juniors with Artie Means. Weed becomes legal in Colorado, but yet he still thinks he can make a killing selling on the streets? https://denver.cbslocal.com/2020/02/15/scott-pack-aspen-elizabeth-marijuana-illegall-convicted-state-lines-grow-pot-cannabis-law-transport-organized-crime-renee-rayton/

    From Phillips Innovator to Brunel, which boat and race is most enjoyable for you? which do you prefer, the current 24/7 video and reporting onboard, or the time before all that?

    coach of the year

    A dirty unspoken secret in college sailing, as well as other college sports, are eating disorders for the purpose of making weight. Will college sailing ever put in a minimum total crew weight to help lessen the number of crew, mostly female, who have eating disorders? If not, why not? It seems that college sailors tend to mostly be on the small size. Shouldn’t there be a way to include large people as a routine practice? What can be done in college sailing to help get college sailors exposure to traditional classes so they have some place to go after they graduate?

    The historical perspective of ‘08 is interesting and encouraging.

    Crew memberships required for racing at yacht club?

    That assumes all the boats racing are stored at the club. I sail on plenty of boats that are berthed in public marinas, or places other than the club, because the club has limited slips and moorings. And ironically, or maybe not, the vast majority of the boats with a dock or mooring at the club do not race.

    Crew memberships required for racing at yacht club?

    Typical Aussie sailing mentality. How exactly is this going to be monitored and then enforced? What’s the penalty for non-compliance?

    Well at least that owner doesn’t have to worry about a crew puking in a dinghy

    Youth America's Cup

    What makes you think this is going to be inexpensive? Probably at least a USD500,000 boat as is.
