      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.

Pedro says 20+ tonight for today's starters, not so much for the big boys tomorrow.

 

Rapid Transit is out, hit something off of Pt Loma last night on the delivery. Engine damaged-drop down diesel outboard-beyond quick repair. So I guess I've got 6 days to catch up on projects now....

Blue Blazes is leading out of the harbor with 12.4 knots TWS from 298 making 8.2 Knots BS. Hula Girl is second, Ocelot third, Time Shaver fourth and MiraMar in fifth. It looks like Div 3 could make some good miles down the track tonight and have an opportunity to keep in some pressure down the track when it goes light and offshore for the big boats tomorrow.

1st place boat 198 miles down the track @ 830am

 

wind 22 - 25k and holding

 

this was Not the year to pass-up a ride on any class3 boat

 

 

 

Today in DAGO

 

You know......... a regular Beautiful Sunny Day w clear skies the birds are chirpin the flowers are blooming and it's kinda warm (should be mid 70's)

 

as for that thing called wind, well a no show at the moment

 

but that's what I said yesterday and the racers got their own WIND that's following them down the hill like a dog on a chain

 

Yesterday the Wind was at its best for the start

 

with boats picking a lane and heading straight out of the bay till it was time to make a Left turn by the Coronado's (inside)

​As of 11:30 AM Time Shaver and Ocelot have been trading first place back and forth. The will have made just over 240 miles down the track in 24 hours. Currently Ocelot is doing 12.4 knots on a heading of 136 and Time Shaver is making 12.7 knots at a bearing of 132. The gribs are showing 18 knots of WS from 004 for Ocelot and 21.6 knots from 356 for Time Shaver.

 

 

 

The big boats are about to start and they'll have around 12 knots to start in. So, it won't be as light as it looked for them yesterday. But, they also don't look like they will have the pressure that the C class boats got last night. The leaders C Class boats look like they will hold the pressure for another 12-24 hours before it starts getting patchy.

As of 5:00PM the big boats have really been chomping up the miles in 10 to 11 knots of breeze the majority of todays starters are doing betwwen 11 and 14 knots with Loreal doing 19.9 knots.l

Time Shaver is still leading in Div. C. But, Blue Blazes has gotten back in the same patch of water and Ocelot is a full two knots faster on the inside.

Weather forecats indicatee that right of rum may pay. But, how many extra miles do you sail to optimize VMC?

Rio is leading some other boats to the left of rhum into a vast calm, while Loreal, and Beau Geste, continue on with a strong breeze.

Looks like a raft up for the friday starters. -5ks boat speed, dim prospects for the future, the thursday starters...and loreal... sailing away in breeze. Even B.G. has made the hard lefty.

 

Don't these guys look at a weather forecast?

I'm guessin ya can't go by the wind reports off the tracker

 

shows the raft-up in just over 11k and heading out into a deep field of just over 11k

 

while just inside of the rum-line it shows just over 21k as Katina & Rio bob in that direction

 

Looks like the Dinner for Enloe, Cam and Co at Fiddler's Green Thursday evening was the correct move

 

these are a Fun Bunch to hang with and the stories are quite entertaining and plentiful

 

Katina and GB Teams had dinner at Humpries on Thursday evening and as I was not there for the dinner can only say the Backstage lounge was enjoyed afterwords smile.gif

 

shall be interesting to see what happens as the Sun moves overhead

 

LoeReal is off in their own Private Idaho = Idaho how they can go that fast ohmy.gif

 

Miramar will be serving the finest Food and Drink as they outpace the 2nd tier of Friday starters cool.gif

 

and it's Nice and Sunny in DAGO once again rolleyes.gif

Anyone know why Serena is slow? Headed inside at 4.6 in 15 T (reported).

 

not to mention heading away form pressure and inside to the point they will have to head out to clear Cabo

 

something broke ??

 

heading to Cabo ??

 

still would not bet on the tracker being 100%

 

won't be long before LoeReal has all in the rear-view mirror

Serena has a broken headstay. Ocelot's tracker is down. Ocelot is listed as first in class. But, we're supposed to wait for the morning roll call to know where. Time Shaver and Hula Girl are just shy of Cabo's Lat. But, well outside. Loreal looks like they've come all the way back inside to rum line. But, they are down to 10 knots of boat speed.

Well I got to tell ya

 

if I went all the way from DAGO to Cabo I would stay longer than it took to make the last post

 

They are on their way to PV (after picking up some who flew into Cabo ??)

 

I can't imagine that ride lacking anything tween DAGO and PV

 

so I'm guessin flights were cheaper to Cabo than PV and the last leg Waaaaaaaaaaaay more hospitable aboard the Good Ship Coley D cool.gif

There is light at the end of the tunnel! Loreal is doing 13 knots and is 77 miles out. Beau Gest is just sailing through Div. 3 at 6.7 knots 214 miles out. Peligroso and Bad Pack are in the vicinity of Cabo doing around 5 knots. Blue Blazes is 143 miles out doing 7.4 knots. Who knows where Ocelot is? Time Shaver is 232 miles out doing 5.5 knots. Hula Girl is 287.8 miles out doing 7.6 knots. So, Loreal will finish sometime early afternoon. And, Blue Blazes will probably finish in the early hours tomorrow morning.

Ocelot is listed as 3rd with a position of 21 57' 108 31'. Blue Blazes 2cnd with 166 miles to go and Time Shaver 1st with 214 miles to go. But, Blue Blazes definitely has more breeze. It's going to be a nail biter.

Hey, you were the one being kinda annoying early on with your Ocelot call.... And even though if it were me personally buying a boat, I would buy the Ocelot over BB, I knew the talented fellas on BB would pull through for the win.

Heard that Rio hit a reef about a mile from the finish and the bulb is gone from the keel. At least one crewmember with some injuries. Sounds like the boat stayed upright and they made it to the harbor. Anyone know more?

I just heard Rio may have their bulb back on shore soon. If anybody can fix this thing up before tomorrow's racing, it's the boys from DCM Enterprises in Richmond, CA. That's Morgan Gutenkunst prepping the Rio keel in the photo. Could be an all-nighter. Best of luck to Rio.
