    The owner of the X-34 you sail on should get one. You guys could be some of the hacks to drive the rating up around 108 Rumor is there's a "hack" in our area who just bought into one. Will have to see how they do with it. Rumor is that Hustler is waiting for hull number 283. It's not a rumor, if they get that high in hull numbers, it could happen That would make it a little harder for Left Hook to jump off Hustler when a faster ride comes along

    Who is snaggletooth

    That's funny because each morning, before everything got working in my aging body, I would have to go downstairs sideways, one step at a time. After about a week of the stuff, I descend normally. Perhaps placebo aff ect.... your results may vary. Well, that confirms what we knew. Youre on drugs. My wife laughs at me because when I get out of bed I walk for ten minutes like someone sawed off my legs mid calf. Finally figured out it was my Achilles' tendons shrinking at night . So now I do some silly stretching in bed before I stumble to the head and I don't piss on myself so much anymore.

    Manhasset Fall Series

    +1 They are PATHETIC. Thanks for taking notice, nobody else does. I think they have become use to some of the worse sailors around. It was nice to finally have someone to sail against. Thanks for coming down. But Sailman is correct, strap a set on and race us level. The last race was fun, but sucked losing it on corrected time to the same boat. But not as bad as losing the first race on Sun on corrected time to a pathetically sailed J92 taking all kinds of pussy cruising credits that should owe me time. I guess when you sail as bad as they do, the PHRF comm protects there rating, kind of like golf. Thats Ridiculous

    Thought you couldn't make and had a prior engagement?? Busted! Getting blown off for better ride. You'd have better luck if you bought a J 92!

    I thick in generale moste peopel dointe wante be the badde guye. Thicking being nice and lookng the orthere waye wille help. Moiste time juste the oppasite happends, biddere numberes laeving the sporte do to lacke of adherents to the riules. +1 The biggest rule that is violated is the weight limit. The PHRF comm don't give a shit about. They want us being the bad guys. There is a boat in my class at Manhasset that is over the limit and they admit it. But they are all friends and don't care. I personally don't care that they are, but I'm sure other boats do. I dont mind the weight limit so much. Especially being a full figured gal. Not everyone can get regular crew like you. (The same 5 meatballs for 25 years and a kid from college with no friends). Maybe my kid is home from college and wants to sail for a day, whatever. But there is little enforcement of phrf certificates + rules by most clubs. Thats where the problem is. The YRALIS is not an enforcer but when they hear about this stuff they should do something like nasty name calling, or disallow the results for season trophies. You're kidding, right? So the organizing authority is supposed to sit on the signal boat and for every boat that sails by, they are going to guess at the weight of each individual crew member (including the ones that might be in the head) and add that up, then bring up their cert on line and check whether they are in compliance?? Show me where it is the organizing authorities' responsibility to enforce weight limits. If you have a suspicion about someone, then throw up a flag and we'll bring them in and weigh them. Let the Race Committee run the races. You make them into ratings cops and you'll have the shitiest courses you could ever imagine. We have a thousand things going through our minds when we're running races, don't add more to it or you will be sorely dissappointed. easy sport i meant to say I am against the weight rules. Just becuase Espo makes his crew shave their balls (except for LH who dosnt need to) to save weight its not for everyone. Its up to competitors to protest or STFU O.A. and R.C. and YRA should enforce certificate validty, once per season change, etc instead of hiding. Cheaters will dissappear fast

    You think Santana/USMMA could have done better if they weren't busy practicing Gangnam dancing? Our tax dollars at work! http://www.brobible....y-gangnam-style

    That does suck! I understand the Cab was a juvenile vintage and served chilled as well what happened at the J44 regatta? why didnt these guys just do MBYC with their own start? not very neighborly

    Manhasset Fall Series

    Disappointing show by MBYC. Been doing this regatta since the early '80s and the club has always been a welcoming place with an excellent spread for all the racers afterwards. Now we are out on the patio with a ration of undercooked sausages. Well done! Looks like Riverside's management has taken over MBYC. On the water, a distance race in great fall conditions? Since when is 11.8 miles a distance race? I am starting to see why this series is going the way of the dodo. I sent your comments to everyone at Manhasset Bay. For your information the long distance race has had the same courses for many years. Compared to a 3.5 mile windward leeward, yes, 11.8 miles is a distance race. The brautwurst was just tasty. I'm sorry you're not happy. We aim to please. We are very concerned why there is not more participation. There are many reasons for the lack of entries. Some of them are completely out of our hands. We will be doing what it takes to turn this event around. Kuddos to RC for getting those races in on Saturday. what? who cares don't you choose your regattas based on the quality of the free food afterward?
