    New Annapolis to Oxford Race 5.12.18

    I thought that might be the case but it is not written well if that was their intention.

    How much of a turn is required for it to be passing versus rounding?

    7.3 says the RC may shorten the course at any rounding mark but 11.2 says the RC can shorten the course at G7 or O. I mean those as inconsistent at best.

    The SIs were contradictory on shortening course: 7.2 After starting, the following marks shall be rounded or passed in the following order: (a) Bloody Pt. Warning Light (LLNR 7751), passed to port, (b) R"84" (CBYRA Mark R), passed to port, (c) RN "80A", passed to port, (d) G"7" (off Black Walnut Pt.), rounded to port, (e) R"10" (Choptank Area Mark D), passed to starboard, and (f) Choptank River Light (Choptank Area Mark O), rounded to port 7.3 The race committee may shorten the course at any rounding mark. Boats shall sail near marks that are to be "rounded" in SI 7.2 above. 11.1 Before the start, the race committee may shorten the course by displaying Flag L with a sound and moving the starting area south. 11.2 After the start, the race committee may shorten the course in accordance with RRS 32 at G"7" (off Black Walnut Pt.) or at the Choptank River Light (Choptank Area Mark O). 11.3 If the race committee shortens course in accordance with either SI 11.1 or 11.2, it will make an announcement on VHF radio.

    I’ll give it to you. Since there was no RC boat for reference (ahem) it was hard to tell who was ahead from my perspective I’ll also note I called your sail number first on the radio when I announced both of our times...

    I think you mean 15:45. I crossed at 15:43 at the same time as the the J/88, and the J/111 crossed at 15:41 if I recall correctly. The smaller H was headed towards the Bay when we crossed.

    It was a great light air Chesapeake Bay race. That is, right up until the RC abandoned the race nearly two hours before the time limit and with two dozen boats within a mile from the (shortened course) finish line. I bet Hinckley really felt they got their money’s worth on those entry fees. The comments on the VHF alone are hardly suitable for print. More than a few boats recorded their finishing time on their own after the RC pulled anchor and ditched the fleet, presumably to celebrate their great success at the party. Just wondering out loud into the void: why have a time limit, and why have provisions to shorten the course, if the race will be abandoned after over four hours of racing with almost two more left until the lead boat hits TLE?

    I have not found one. Where are you and what can you tell me about it?

    At 190, I’m a little light for a Finn. I’m even a little light for the MB but I have sailed one extensively in college. But I’m 6’6” and the size of the MB is just right for me. Finally, when you can find one, used MBs are a fraction of the price of a good Finn.

    I don’t have a clue where to even look for one. Does anyone have a line on a used megabyte?
