    Only one ass clown is claiming anything like that. The vast majority of posters understand. Thanks to all of you for posting. Matt Knighton was a longtime crew aboard IMEDI and he is leading the effort to produce a video tribute to Jon. If anyone has any short video or good photos of Jon, post them here or give me a shout if you want to stay anonymous.

    Just spoke to Norm off D3. They were on station a long time. Nick hurt his finger on the spreader after being hoisted up for a better vantage point, and after being more or less released by the CG, they decided to withdraw and get nick some medical attention. Kudos to Bill McK and everyone else who helped or continued to help with the search.

    SSTs are really high, or at least they were as of a couple of days ago.

    Man overboard alert on TP52 "Imedi" At approximately 3:00pm Saturday, the US Coast Guard (USCG) alerted the Chicago Yacht Club Race to Mackinac Race Committee of a man overboard alert from Imedi, a Transpac 52 competing in the Turbo Section. USCG, Chicago Police Department, and Chicago Fire Department have deployed helicopters and other assets to assist in the search. Several nearby competitors suspended racing to also assist. At the time of the alert, the sailboat’s location was approximately five nautical miles from the CYCRTM starting line, just off the Chicago Harbor breakwall. We are actively monitoring the situation. Please tune in to and CYCRTM social media channels for future updates as they are available.
  6. Standing by, noting that US kids have NEVER had trouble doing well in C420 or Laser small rigs. Not much to be impressed at yet.

    Thoughts 1) Fuck I hope the Chicago Mac has some breeze. 2) I am sooooo glad I went to Poland instead of sailing the Hoodlum!

    I think he'd be pretty stoked if someone would arrest him. Good way to make a hundred million in box office receipts

    Not needed? Sure. But only the most crazed puritan tries to legislate against all the things that are 'not needed'. intimidation is part of every sport where two people want to occupy the same piece of road/track/field/pitch/court/course and even in those where they don't. The list of champions who don't play head games, talk shit, or use their moves or body language to intimidate their opponents is probably a short one indeed.

    There's a whole lot of 'enduring abuse' that you seem to think is going on here, but this discussion really isn't about 'abuse' - it's about regular language in regular life that a few old people and fearful grandparents want to prevent. I really, really don't understand how hearing curse words is 'enduring abuse'. An sailor who is ABUSING others - especially kids - should be penalized, and I don't really see anyone disputing that. But if the word "FUCK" is categorized as 'abuse' to you, I think you need to go to your fainting couch and take a break. Do not try to use 1950 standards to patrol a 2020 world. Other answers: (1) I don't swear in my commentary because I am paid not to swear in my commentary. Pro tennis players don't swear (loudly) because they do not want to lose sponsors or have soundbites go viral on social media. (2) My wife is like me - she takes zero shit from people. You talk shit, she comes back at you harder. If I wanted a girl who liked to turn the other cheek, I'd have found some dirty-minded catholic girl. I think you are conflating all sorts of things to avoid saying what you really want to: "I don't like those dirty words and I don't want others to have the right to say them out loud while I'm yachting'

    This is some bullshit. "Higher standards" is generally code for whatever the oldest person in the club thinks. You could just as accurately say "Obsolete standards that don't apply anywhere else in life". Hopefully I have prepared my child, mother, or grandparents properly for competition, meaning they know how to take care of themselves. Are your child/mother/grandparents really that in need of your powerful protection? And finally, you trust protest committees? I'm guessing you have not seen very many of them. You sound like a straight up colonial.

    1) That's not what I responded to. 2) Maybe sports where you still have to wear an ascot when you play, but none that I do.

    to be fair, Chris Museler did several big pieces in the NYT last time around, including a front page sports section piece. SO while the VG doesn't reach the US very well, it is reaching it better than ever before thanks to social media as well as a handful of influential writers and web editors. Interestingly, it's been much tougher than last time to get mainstream US media to report on the VOR this time around, and VOR isn't quite sure why.
