      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Lake Erie Anarchy Part 2

My wife and I stopped at EYC yesterday after a extended hiatus from racing.I was really impressed with EYC's race management,orginization and the do what it takes attitude to make racing at EYC a great experience for the competitors.Was more impressed that they seem to have very competitive fleets with a great turnout on a weekly basis.That comes about with commitment from the sailors and hard work from all of the volunteers.Keep up the good work.

Ah, that answers my question re: the new 10 listed on the entrants. Welcome (back) to the knucklehead-ery. And remember, if you swap paint you have to throw the protest flag immediately or get your protest thrown out. Looking at the boats on the line the possibilities are somewhat smaller than last weekend.

any info for the roberts race it apears the website is 2011

 

Thanks for that catch -- I'm embarrassed to admit this but, after loading up all the new docs... I didn't update the links to the 2012 files. To be fair, it's not like I took any website classes in school! Should be fixed within the hour.

 

Also, for CYC peoples, the entry form will be available in the CYC clubhouse lobby... for EWYC and other clubs, I have asked their respective fleet captains to kindly distribute via email.

 

Here's the electronic forms for the SA bunch as well -- if I did it correctly, you should be able to open up the PDF entry form and just type directly into it.

 

Shameless bump -- with the race exactly one month away, looking forward to seeing everyone! Whomever would like to take their swings at the new Mrs. Ed on the JAM start line... will get their chance!

Pending on fleet splits, yes, planning on having the JAM fleet(s) start early around 0800 or 0830... followed by the PHRF fleets probably closer to 0930 or 1000.

 

Right now, I am praying for some more wind in the forecast, especially if I am on a Beneteau.

anybody see the splits for crw? a couple of weird phrf fleets

Only the one where the 105's weren't in their own division. That must of been because there wasn't enough registered.

Schockstar's new home...From the SA from the front page:how to train your dragon - The Schock 40 was both one of the more adventuresome production 40 footers and one of the worst. Canting keel, forward rudder, sketchy build, As famously said in punk rock documentary, the Decline of Western Civilization, "it was fucked, but it was great." Anarchist Pete just bought one and below he describes the joys of learning how to sail such a creature during Ullman Sails Long Beach Race Week...As for us, well this is a learning experience with the new boat in our first regatta.  We had five new people on board including two dinghy sailors from UCLA.  While talented they quickly found that handling a 1,650sf A2, the size of a large 2 bedroom apartment is little different than a 29'er.  The twin foil, canting keel Schock 40 is different than any boat I have ever sailed.  If there is anything we have taken away is how to tack the boat in heavy air.  The twin foils on this boat are narrow and deep and when you tack if the main is on hard the boat wants to round up.  When it does, you lose flow and the boat immediately  goes in irons and literally starts going backwards.  This happened to us three times in day 1.  Note to self, back wind a few seconds on the jib to bring the bow around and ease the main to keep the boat on its feet.  And broaching is a wild experience.  With the keel at a 60 degree cant the boat rolls and you bury the weather rail and getting the boat to come out of it can be quite tricky.  We sheared off the clutch handle on the tack line in one wild one.  Fortunately we have a spare.  We went 4-4-4 for a total of 16 points.  There are two boats tied for 2nd with 15 points so 2nd place is within striking distance if we have a good day Sunday.  I would consider a second a very successful first regatta. 06/26/12

no the one fleet where there were 7 boats that had a 72 rating with 2 other boats that weren't that close to rating

the level 72's should have had there own class - no ifs ands or buts about it

that was a mistake, especially when you had smaller phrf fleets than 7 boats

 

our fleet was fine - we only had 3 j105s and shouldn't get our own fleet with that

Do you put the J120 in PHRF A then? That would be a big spread between the Farr 400 to the J120.

Damned if you do damned if you don't... it's already a big spread between the Farr 400 and the Henderson so... I maybe would have thrown Capers into A if only for the sprit... but where do you put Blue Dog? Move them to E with the 75 and 78 and 90 class? At that point at least you have a level 72 class, but you're still going to upset Capers and/or BD.

i think you are missing the point - 7 BOATS WITH A equal 72 RATING!!!!

they deserve a seperate class - the other boats you fit wherever you have to

the j120 and blue dog in A, you have a big spread already.

not the level 72 guys problem that 8-10 boats in A land have different spread out ratings.

but you burned them and their chance to have a good series. i talked to some and they wondered

what the heck they did and were shaking their heads.

they gave 4 farr30's their own class (i get they had 7 signed up, wait did i say 7 again?)

 

look, sailing is down everywhere, why punish these 7 level boats and their chance to sail level as a class?

just answer me that.

What PHRF boats are signed up or expected for the Robert's.

Do you have a list?

 

I have two lists... one of "we're coming" and one of received entries...

 

Maybe I was unclear. I am glad you have a list, but will you post it. We are on the fence.

Level 72 was not advertised. Splits are not easy when we have boats so dissimilar. Capers did not fit. I could not see them in A. We had 7 Farr 30s registered. 6 of them paid. Jim, you had one once you know the situation... Interesting that I did not hear any complaints from the "level 72" sailors..... Are we going to have enough 105s at Bay Week to have them on the OD course?

FWIW when everyone is "on the fence" it makes it easier for everyone else to jump to the same side as soon as the first one goes :rolleyes:;-)

we have the following committed for the bay are far as i know

not sure if any of the detriot boats will join us

 

trio unbridled magpie the boat from vermilion and it - 5 boats for sure

will that get us a start, i am not sure

 

on the thing, still think you have to look at what is fair for the 7 level boats, not one or 2 boats that have a rating somewhere in the middle

rather have one bitching than 7

 

on the forecast for sat - tues is way to early to think you might know what is going to happen on LE

Agree, we wonder why turnouts are down? Maybe not having sailflow 15 years ago was a good thing.

I just looked at sailflow and it is showing 2-3 knots all day long. I hate to say it, but I think we are off of the fence and in the not going category. Sorry.

 

Weak

Agree, we wonder why turnouts are down? Maybe not having sailflow 15 years ago was a good thing.

 

 

I thought I recall Mr. Ed dropping out and turning on the blender last year. Maybe why finishers are down.

The one and only time in 16 years of sailing? Where same said boat travelled and helped promote ALL local regattas (not self back-scratching and just CYC) even before CSA existed? Oh right, and the camels were calling from Egypt, too.

Sure did, had to catch a plane to Egypt. Still enjoyed the sail.

Just busting your chops a little. We have done the Roberts the last few years, but have 4 people who are unavailable this weekend. If it was looking like the ride of the year, like 2009, then I may be more inclined to scrap together the rest of the crew. We will see you guys at Leukemia cup in a few weeks and I may even try to hop on another boat for the Roberts. Just a little tired of emails, txts, and phone calls to go sailing in 2 knots of breeze.

 

If I see you this weekend I will buy you a beer. Now don't be so sensitive. You guys have traveled a ton.

Now Bobsled....................

insane to do a 65nm race on a PHRF 200ish rated boat. Still thinking about it.

 

jam entries are probably attracted to the 30nm distance. more reasonable in lighter air.... could be a perfect day, prolly decide friday

morning ;-)

we have the following committed for the bay are far as i know

not sure if any of the detriot boats will join us

 

trio unbridled magpie the boat from vermilion and it - 5 boats for sure

will that get us a start, i am not sure

 

on the thing, still think you have to look at what is fair for the 7 level boats, not one or 2 boats that have a rating somewhere in the middle

rather have one bitching than 7

 

on the forecast for sat - tues is way to early to think you might know what is going to happen on LE

 

I never heard any of the seven bitch.

Yes if you have 5 boats you should have a class.

I hope we can get the 36.7s to bring 5 or more. They have NAs at CYC in Sept so lets hope.

Yes I will send you around the islands one day/. I liked what last year was. Need to beter discribe all marks. My fault. Jim Please record my admission for all history. Missed the horse this weekend.

i hear you - will note your admission

 

you can see how those 7 would have loved to have a class of their own and let them duke it out

hard for them to deal with the other 2 much faster boats as they can just sail away and always have clean air

Regarding the issue of PHRF C and the seven 72's I don't know if I speak for the other 6 but while it would have been nice to only have us in the class we were really only racing each other anyway. The 120 was gone early in each race and going its own way and different angles. There have been some years past where RC was able to keep it all 72 and that was great but I understand there was no other good place to put the 120 and 115.

 

In the bigger picture CRW 2012 was a super event as usual - great job again by Titge and company on the water. EYC is a good club and we even got a dock spot right up front!

 

Too bad we missed out on a beautiful sail through the inner harbor on Friday night - but the chili was ready!

There will be a keg, pop, cash grill tomorrow evening at Topsides, our pool deck bar at the center of the island. There, I will be putting together scratch sheets as fast as the entries keep pouring in, as well as partaking in several adult beverages.

 

By 8pm I expect to have splits and start times all worked out. I will also be passing out parking passes for skippers' cars only (sorry, out of my hands), and CYC will be running a shuttle from the top of the hill Saturday morning.

 

As for the race on Saturday, I will be starting JAM first (one start) at approximately 0930 (maybe 0945). PHRF will likely have one start as well (if I get a plethora of last minute entries we may have 2 starts) at approximately 1000. I will hold a skipper's meeting at approximately 0800. By the time the boats leave the rivermouth the finish mark will have been set for anyone that would like to motor by it and plug it into their GPS -- otherwise, all marks of the course will be found in the SI's (with their GPS coordinates) and available both Friday evening and Saturday morning -- if you haven;t already printed them out from our website.

 

I will be requesting the first boat(s) to call my cell phone approximately 1 hour out from their finish. One reason is so I can have the keg from Friday night set back out for rehydration purposes.

 

Sunday, we will host awards under the tent -- where there will be another keg, pop, and we will be serving our delicious gyros (made famous at our Fall Regatta). I also welcome anyone and everyone to check out our new display and refurbishment of the F W Roberts Race trophy in the main lobby of the clubhouse. This past winter we worked hard to get a larger base built and finished, updating each year to reflect up to last year's winner, First Tracks.

 

 

 

Current entry list is as follows (sbject to change tonight when I check for more again):

 

PHRF

Bobsled

Vanpire

First Tracks

Sloopy IV

Fever

Sneak A Tack

Cotton Blossom

Milly S

 

JAM

Mrs. Ed

Bigger

Sirocco

Was a great day on the water but when ETA went to independence day on the western buoy with 5kts of on the nose flow, the engine was deployed for a most pleasant motor back to CYC. Congrats to whomever endured to finish.

 

Oddly, the juniors sailing @ Mentor had 20kts + of wind for nearly an hour around 11am. The most we saw was 11 off the crib.
