    Anyone seen an entry list for the Falcon? It looks like a slower ride than last year! Sometimes I just have a need to go full Ballushi .....glad the breeze is going left...the Falcon should be contested under a bag looks like the same conditions as 2011 (OK it just struck me that we are on starboard, so breeze was out of the S/W)FraNKLY, I'll be happy if you DON"T broach 6 times! Dreamer is docked next to me at CYC. What a yacht!

    Sure perhaps at CYC. If you look in past years I bet there were close to as many boats from other clubs who came to do the race as there were participants from CYC. I did the Mills race for the first time in 20+ years of sailing on LE and it was staggering the number sponsors literature and info put out about the race. Multiple courses pre and post parties... It brings boats from detroit to erie. If you want 75 boats to do a race like that that is what you have to do. Otherwise this is what happens. As for the Q on the schedule that's just an other throwout for those who just don't want to do it, I personally don't think that way but it is a sad fact. It has been publicized -- here, via emails, via personal phone calls, via the CSA website, via text messaging, via the CYC schedule which has been posted since end of April. The race has been run for 83 years... it's amazing how things just tend to creep up on people and when the time comes (too late) everyone all of a sudden has an opinion. Where were these opinions when there was a tabled discussion last fall at CYC? This spring? In the survey that I sent, directly, to everyone at our club, made publicly available to everyone else, and received a total of (3) responses? Stop pointing fingers that this was "not advertised." If you had "multiple people over the past month" asking you about the race, why was I not contacted? I don't need the rude and offensive emails, phone conversations, etc from the very few that DID sign up, pointing the blame on myself... that most certainly solves the issue doesn't it? The distance race was cancelled because it is impossible to justify what all had been planned for a mere 4-5 boats. It will be scheduled for next year -- in April -- like it always has been. If people want to wake up now and actually decide more than a day in advance if they're attending, perhaps an even better party/race/schedule can be arranged for all. Hard to throw an event when there are no RSVPs, don't you think? Thanks. Rob Thank you for running the race the past three years, thank you for doing the survey to try and make changes to attract more boats. I find it amusing that the ones on this forum lamenting the cancellation did not even have an entry in. You can not run an event on "maybe we will race" or "can we sign up the night before". I should not be surprised as they are the same people who never offer to help. If you don't like what happened get off your ass and help. There is more to running an event or race than drinking the free beer. If I offended anyone you know where to find me. Robert SR

    Weak Agree, we wonder why turnouts are down? Maybe not having sailflow 15 years ago was a good thing. Sure did, had to catch a plane to Egypt. Still enjoyed the sail. I thought I recall Mr. Ed dropping out and turning on the blender last year. Maybe why finishers are down.
