      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.

EBYRA 2012

341 posts in this topic

It's a new year for EBYRA and change is in the air.

 

Members of the board of EBYRA successfully blocked Espo from membership into a rival club; in an example of cowardly, petty, unprofessional and childish behavior (this being the EBYRA board though it should be expected based on their past performance). Not to be outdone Espo's plan B of membership into Morris YC came through followed by an appointment as the MYC Alternate Rep to the EBYRA board.

 

So now the fox is in the hen house and maybe the sailors of Eastchester Bay will have an association that is managed with the premise of actually fostering and promoting yacht racing, a novel concept and one lost on the prior leadership. Change can either happen when an organization withers away and dies, as is the current trend, or it can happen from within with new leadership.

 

Let the season of whinging, bombast and oh yeah sailing begin!

From what I heard, John applied for an associate membership at the Harlem Yacht Club but wanted to make that membership conditional on being the HYC rep to EBYRA. There are many of us at HYC that think that the EBYRA needs to make some changes but we did not think that we should promise a spot on the EBYRA board as a condition of membership. One of the issues concerning EBYRA is that it is supposed to be an extension of the area clubs but some members of the Board have been more concerned with staying on the Board than representing a particular club or seeking guidance from their club. Promising someone that they would be the HYC rep if they would join didn't seem like a great way to turn this issue around.

So what positive changes does Espo plan on invoking in the EBYRA?

 

Bringing J-24's back into the fold, expanding or introducing/encouraging more one design sailing (even dinghy sailing) in Eastchester Bay, expanding the Wed night series or just slapping a couple of ratings that invoke his ire?

 

Sad to see the continuing decline of the state of CI racing. Don't know if it's simply a reflection of broader national trends however good luck.

Espo being involved at that level can only be good -I think he actually cares about the quality of what happens there on Eastchester Bay--used to be so competitive and a real crucible to learn in and now looked on as a bit of a joke--help them raise the bar John.

Thanks btbotfa.

I have already secured a $500 sponsor from QUANTUM SAILS Long Island "Thank You Peter Sherman"

Working on another sponsor a local CI business.

Talking with the head ofa local Viper 640 class to hopefully get some sportboat racing on the scene for Wed nights.

This will be both fun and challenging, I just have to get some of the old timer dead heads involved to see where sailing is gone too, then I can make some progress.

It will be great to see Morris Y&B hoping on Wed nites with winning skippers, If I have anything to do with it! ;)

Will you be sailing your boat on Wednesday nights Espo?

Thinking about it

 

Why not use Hustler to help train a whole lot of EBYRA people up to make them better. Put together a bunch of people who race together on Hustler and that you and a few other people teach in an honest, helpful way. Improve the level of the crew in the fleet so that the fleet itself gets better and more competitive. I'm sure you've got a lot to teach people so why not haul out a few old woodpile covers and kick some moderate ass but also help EBYRA in another way.

Gee, I only wanted what you did for Jeep back in the 90's, promised him the HYC rep spot if he quit Morris Yacht Club.

If you don't believe me just ask him he boasted about it back then :P

I would be willing to bet $1 that more boats will quit EBYRA in 2012 than ever joined in any single year..

 

Maybe before any of the races are even run...

If you strip out the J/111 the ratings band in Div 6 is 33 sec/mile from fastest to slowest boat. With the J/111 it's 78 sec/mile. It's like a thoroughbred racing against donkey's. No disrespect to any of the other boats/skippers.

 

There was a fairly productive discussion about this at the EBYRA Skippers' Meeting last week but I'm not sure what the result ended up being. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

How can you try to make fair for the other boats?

1. Give the 111 a neg provisional phrf rating?

2. Have them start after all the other classes?

 

I am not sure there is another way around it.

Sail safe!

Based on the races he enters, he doesn't want to race on par with any other boat. The term "no talent hack" comes to mind.

Or just force them to keep sailing with the bowguy they had on Sunday. Putting up the kite sideways twice should handicap them enough for the rest of the div to catch up.

The problem with EBYRA is that the hack sailors from CIYC are like a bunch

 

of high maintenance cunts. Someone has got to explain to them that if

 

you're not good looking and don't give good head, no one is buying the high

 

maintenance attitude. In other words, "If you're a bunch of hack sailors,

 

STFU and learn how to sail." The only racing sailor they had was the "dick"

 

on Hustler and it seems he quit and joined the beach club down the road

 

along with the several other CIYC members over the past few years. Rumor

 

has it that CIYC is going to lose definitely one, possibly more, members to

 

the beach club.;)

The problem with EBYRA is that the hack sailors from CIYC are like a bunch

 

of high maintenance cunts. Someone has got to explain to them that if

 

you're not good looking and don't give good head, no one is buying the high

 

maintenance attitude. In other words, "If you're a bunch of hack sailors,

 

STFU and learn how to sail." The only racing sailor they had was the "dick"

 

on Hustler and it seems he quit and joined the beach club down the road

 

along with the several other CIYC members over the past few years. Rumor

 

has it that CIYC is going to lose definitely one, possibly more, members to

 

the beach club.;)

 

 

Talking about yourself in the third person is a bit creepy Espo.

Still jobless I see, what a douche bag you are

Really? you come here and only have 9 posts almost all of which are aimed at me and Espo, do you think it's hard to figure out who you are?

you're name is "tit in your anus" so you must have tits.

you pull up an old thread and bring up my daughter to provoke me.

I am not going to 'out you" because you have a hard enough time finding boats to race on.

I am surprised that you would be going after me after me especially when I have put a good amount of money and time into helping the EBYRA and many of the racers.

maybe wednesday nights in city island just aren't for you.

Is the J/80 Frivolous sailing with the correct PHRF rating. Discuss.

No, not unless they sail with the 105% jib :D

Then it's probably good that they don't sail in EBYRA races.

Stupidity?

 

No, I felt there was less current there with the tide ebbing, and looking at the flag pole at KP there looked like more pressure. When we got there and tacked we were lying the weather mark and looked great, for 5 minutes then we got knocked 15 degrees and then another 5. We didn't look so good after that. That is the first time I have ever seen boats go that far right heading to the J mark and make out. I guess luck pays off sometimes. The breeze was also a bit spotty on that leg and some times you have to roll the dice.

My other thought was that when TM went right to clear there air Whirlwind followed to cover and all the others just followed because that what they do every week follow the leader to the right. I am sure TM and Whirlwind are not paying to much attention to us, and for good reason, we are not sailing in the same breeze 5 minutes after the start If i were to do it all over again I would do exactly the same thing. I can't worry about thoe other boats when we owe the closest boat WW 45 sec per mile.

What boat were you on?

thnx Espo- we thought there was better breeze over there and current relief, some nice lefties for a bit then had some boats to avoid

 

we do try to stay in the same realm, not take a flyer too much. and you guys give us a hint of what the breeze is doing up course!

 

nice job forza! ww keeping strong. looks like a pretty competitive year!

For some at least. We prefer the view from the back of the fleet.
