Hey all, long time lurker... never posted, but stepping up my game. Shallow water sailor here from West Michigan. Potential crew chum if anyone is looking. Thought I would say Hi and at least bump up the thread....

 

There are lots of rides available in Musketucky...PM me if you are interested. We are always looking for new blood...and have some openings this year...

What are you looking to crew on? When? (Weds nights, weekends, both?) and where? (Holland, Muskegon, Grand Haven?)

 

Rides are available.

 

I will leave the customary greetings to others.

 

I currently sail an MC. Not much on a bigger water boat. Just love the opportunity. Would love to sail Wednesday nights mostly (GH or MKG) as I sail the MC on the weekends. expirience

I talked to Ragged Edge last night. He sounds interested in staying in Musketucky for 2011. I think he may even look into one of the new big slips at MYC.

 

+1

Received confirmation last night that Ragged Edge has put his name on one of the new big slips at MYC for 2011.

 

RE appeared to have no regard for the safety of others or their own boat whenever i saw them race. RE also had little knowledge of the rules, if it weren't for people being smart enough to not risk their own boat even when they're in the right, there would've been some serious carnage almost every race RE was in, while they raced in Holland.

Did anybody ever protest him in Holland? I know,nobody protest on Wed nights but if what you say is true and no action taken then you have trained them that it is OK!

That's odd. I've been on the same race course with Ragged Edge hundreds of times and didn't seem to notice. Maybe Muskegon sailors in general just "have no regard for the safety of others or their own boats", because RE fits right in up here.

Haven't made it out to MYC much this winter.

 

Getting the impression that the consensus is that the new docks may not be ready for my normal May 1st launch.

 

I am also trying to organize an OTW clinic for May at MYC. Anybody, Fetz, got the scoop on the installation schedule?

Obfuscation is the concealment of intended meaning in communication, making communication confusing, intentionally ambiguous, and more difficult to interpret

 

 

I had to look that one up...nice one. I guess that PhD is finally paying off.

FYI after the board meeting last night I was able to dispell a few rumors lurking around the MYC:

 

1. The dock project is on budget. (over in a few areas, under in others)

2. We are very near hiring a new manager. Final interviews are next Wednesday.

 

I will now go back to my normal posts....Whale Balls...I like booze....Fetz blows...and so on and so forth...

What's the scoop up at Harbor Towne? Last thing I heard was the bank had pulled the plug and foreclosed on them. 6 month right of redemption expires mid-summer. What's next?

 

Where does this leave the boats that dock there? Will anybody dredge the channel in and out?

 

Where does this leave the Clipper Cup Race if we lose one of the two organizing clubs?

The crisis was allegedly with the Harbour Towne Yacht Club. The HTYC is completely separate from Harbour Towne Marina. The marina is in exceptional financial health from what I know.

Two Area IV races are sponsored by HTYC...the GRSC/HTYC Commodore's Invitational and the Clipper Cup...if the club is/will be defunct, then how should that impact the Area IV series, especially in terms of qualifying races for season awards?

Certainly true with the GH race...I can't comment on the Clipper Cup cause we haven't done that one but we are hoping to do that race this year and it would be a shame if the race didn't happen

This post will no doubt generate a lot of sarcastic crap...especially from Fetzer...but I feel compelled to start getting us all talking about the upcoming season. The crew of STD is psyched for the year. We will focus on the Area IV events (while still respecting the wife's wishes to not sail 3 weeks in a row) and leave Wednesday nights for our sailing version of Golf League...

 

Looking forward to a great year. Hope there will be a lot of boats out on the line for the Area IV stuff.

 

What are everyone else's plans?

As much as you guys talk about the new docks, someone stumbling on this thread would think you guys have a bunch of floating condos. Tied up at the dock all summer, inseparable from shore power, maybe some potted geraniums hanging from the stern rail.... :wacko: If you aren't careful, Dawg will move this thread to Cruising Anarchy.

 

Can't wait until the ice thaws and we can start talking smack about racing again.

Hmmm potted geraniums, wonder if that might be "PHRF rating friendly mod"? Perhaps worth +3 sec?

Cool, will you be doing the mac also as in previous years, would love to see a J-35 OD start. 3 35's from Muskegon already signed up, 2 Chicago area boats, and at the owners meeting in Chicago there was a verbal commitment from one of the Milwaukee based boats.

On the news this weekend I saw the footage of the "World Record Rubber Chicken Toss" in downtown GR. Couldn't help but wonder:

 

Was Dislexic Dog downtown tossing a rubber chicken?

 

Did DDog swipe a new rubber chicken for the backstay of the 7.9 ?

I did get a laugh out of it when discussing the black flag rule it was noted that coincidentally the class flag for a certain larger Chicago Offshore OD fleet was the same.

My business partner just sent me this one. Could be front page material. Apparently a charter company in Chicago has solved some issue in an unusual way. wonder what the PHRF hit is for using "Magic" and a "thin coushion of air" and why the hell didn't I think of this?! :lol:

 

 

 

 

 

The Daily Deal for

 

Chicago

 

Monday, March 21, 2011

 

follow us:

 

 

 

$199 for 2.5 Hours of Semi-Private Sailing for Two People on "Pianissimo" with Lakeshore Sail Charters (Up to $487.50 Value)

The Company

Lakeshore Sail Charters

Locations

Redeem on location

 

 

 

 

A sea voyage is like a trackless train ride across the water fields, relying only on the principles of physics and magic to keep your vessel floating above the water on a thin cushion of air. Unfurl your sea wings with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get 2.5 hours of semi-private sailing for two people on Pianissimo from Lakeshore Sail Charters (up to a $487.50 value).

 

Lakeshore Sail Charters guides seafarers on a serene, luxurious cruise around Lake Michigan, enticing passengers to relax on board one of the three ships in its fleet—including Pianissimo, a 2011 Beneteau Oceanis 50. On each voyage, aqua-adventurers are guided by the steady, calloused hands and windblown visages of U.S. Coast Guard–licensed Captain Bruce Randall and the ship’s doctor, Karen Randall. At the whim of the wind's desire, no two tours on Pianissimo are alike. In between basking in the picturesque skyline views, passengers can peruse Pianissimo's amenities, including a radio, a CD player for playing Arnold Schwarzenegger Making Ocean Sounds, and a microwave.

 

Sailing times are at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Mondays–Fridays and 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The Wednesday 8 p.m. sail requires an additional fee of $30 per person.

I got the racing agenda from the owner/skipper of Aftershock, and we are in for all MYC stuff including Wednesday nights. There may have been some dis-information scattered about, so I hope this will help clear that up. Now I am ready for summer, lets go racing!

 

Cool, will you be doing the mac also as in previous years, would love to see a J-35 OD start. 3 35's from Muskegon already signed up, 2 Chicago area boats, and at the owners meeting in Chicago there was a verbal commitment from one of the Milwaukee based boats.

 

Nope, no mac. NOOD and VERVE may be the only away events.

 

Bummer no Mac...you guys always do well

As of yesterday, Aftershock is signed up for the Mac. Harbor Springs is not decided yet.

 

Hey your up there any way!! Ugotta Regatta! :lol:

Glad you will be joining us. Now we just need to convince the Milwaukee contingent to race with us rather than the DH division.

I heard from Milwaukee yesterday and it is not looking good. Looks like they are going DH. <_<

So much for the verbal commitment at the meeting, to each his own I guess. Am just happy that MYC is bringing 4 OD boats to the event, two more cities with that kind of representation and we would be set. :-)

Saw SeaDog a couple weeks ago. Body seems to be healed up pretty good, boat not so much. Still tied up with the godforsaken lawyers. Doesn't sound like she's going to splash this season.
