    Hey Jackdaw, "Blarney Post" ? Is that for an Irish mainsheet system? Is Darby O'Gill and or one of his little people your mainsheet trimmer? Most of us have a Barney post without the purple dinosaur. We need his weight on the rail.

    BYC Mackinac - Time to Pull the Plug?

    Maybe they have a torn sail and they are repairing it. Currently doing 0 knots. Most likely a bad tracker. I expect them to pop up in the lead anytime now.

    The New Normal?

    M-32 sets record for quickest withdrawal. Mac race committee throws GLMRA rating authority under the bus. Money can’t buy you love, a GLMRA rating or good weather conditions.

    The New Normal?

    It looks like 20+ knots on the nose for the start. Should be interesting

    The New Normal?

    Congrats to BYC Mack Race Committee for holding this years PH Mack Race against all odds. On the other hand, by allowing the M32 to compete without meeting the established minimum safety requirements have they established a new normal. I guess if you have a $250,000 chase boat you don't need to have the same equipment as your competitors. It raises some interesting questions. Next year can Bora enter his foiling Moth provided he has an adequate chase boat? If a safety issue arises, will the Protector chase boat go to another boat's rescue and the M-32 stop racing? If the Protector breaks down or runs out of fuel will the M32 cease racing? Will the Protector pick up any of the M32 jettisoned sails? Will the SIs address any rules for the chase boat? Obvious question, has the BYC Mack committee sold it's soul for essentially a stunt and some increased publicity? I guess we will see a class of M32s in next years race.

    So, I wonder what Mr. safety at Sea, REW thinks about this. He is or was a multihull sailor of note. Having a chase boat is definitely against the spirit of the race. Will everyone in the future need one so they can take more risks? Shouldn't the safety regs be the same for every entrant? Does the BYC Mac committee forfeit the moral authority to enforce any safety requirements after this.

    Mills race is on!

    Bad news. Mills canceled today. Storm Trysail was a co sponsor. They bailed and along with it their insurance umbrella. Mills committee had no other choice.
