      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.

Can One Evening Race Association

Recommended Posts

Attended the Can One Skipper's Meeting last night at Huguenot Yacht Club. Must have been close to fifty folks in attendance.

Primary topic of the evening was the acquisition of a 31' Carver as the official Race Committee boat. In years past (Can One E.R.A. has been around for decades) the participants took turns using a member's boat as the RC and more recently some of the power boat members of Huguenot Yacht Club have graciously offered their boats as RC (Such as a classic 50'+ Trumpy named Rusty Sue). The new RC boat will be appropriately name The Executioner with PRO Billy Padin running the races again this season. In all there are 17 races with a mid series Crew Race. You must compete in 8 races to qualify for the series trophies. Scoring is based on Cox-Sprague Scoring System. First gun is at 1900 hours. There are four divisions (or more if warranted), two are JAM and two are Spinnaker. Competition is at a fairly high level, nothing to stressful (haha) but certainly more competitive than the majority, if not all the other beer can series in WLIS. In particular the larger spinnaker boats have a healthy range of competitors that have proven themselves in YRA events including several J-122's, a Swan 45, J-130, a couple of Express 37s, A Soveral 33, a couple of First 36.7's, J-105's, J-80's etc. and as I understand it a Farr 400 and a custom Goetz 40 will join us this season.

I would be remiss not to mention that Shooting Star owned by SA's BTBOTFA has won that tough spinnaker division the last three seasons with a number of SAers onboard her (Digital Crush, Dacapo, Bit Pitch, T.I.M. and several who prefer to remain anonymous), as well as those sailing on other boats like HBomb, Egon, Left Hook, InNeedofSomeRestraint, Gina, Moondance44, Assman, LongIslandSailorKid, Mr.Clean'sMother, BillHines, some suspect SnaggleTooth, and/or anonymous who prefer to remain several.

After racing many crews head over to Huguenot Yacht Club for food and drink, to discuss the evenings racing, and to cheer on those who are picking up their evening's plunder.

Can One is a great way to unwind mid-week, get a fix for the jones or to practice for the weekend races. They have a website at Can One Evening Race Association as well as Yacht Scoring Can One . Can One also encourages guest boats to come out for a sail and join up if you like the format and racing.

See ya out there!

Even though racing against The Shadow is like chasing a cat through a crawlspace it's usually a pretty good time. Even though races are run in the ass end of WLIS there's usually enough breeze to start and/or finish races and races are always tactical in the extreme with major current gradients across the course and shifts to win and lose off of. Competition in the A division is fierce and looks to only improve this season.

 

Can't wait. I'll see you out there on M this season J.

I really only come down there one night per year to crew with Left Hook to whoop your ass.

Left Hook - believe the Shadow was chasing us that night even owing us time. Plus we had the

handicap of having you onboard. It was embarrassing. (said with an espo inflection)

It's become a nice tradition.

 

The new Sundari should be interesting.

Can One is a great way to practice for the weekend races.

Best racing of WLIS is debatable, surely a statement by someone who has infrequently raced evenings anyplace else.

 

EBYRA for example, with all it's faults, consistently had better courses if "practice for the weekend races" is your goal.

 

One thing that CanOne and EBYRA both can vie for top honors on is the concept that the opinions and ideas of the Board are far superior than those of the competitors.

Well we had a choice, cover Soulmates who we were in contention for the series with, or cover you guys.

Dide youse youre Expo voise on thiss parte?? :)

 

 

Probably not, because our boat beat Soulmates for the series.

So they were not covering us, but a boat further down in the standings. ;)

 

But congrats are due, they did beat both of us for the series. and if they

gave trophies for the bottom 1/2 of the fleet all 3 of us would be cleaning silver now.

I think you are a bit confused Cliffie. Maudeline never finishes in the top of this series. IIRC it was SS, then Q then SM. One would have to be crazy to cover M over SM in any event. But that is yesterday's news and a new season is upon us.

Having sailed in both pretty steadily for the past 5 years and/or more, I would be inclined to disagree with you about EBYRA v. Can One Bill.

One good example of this would be the level of competition. While Soulmates, Christopher Dragon, Sundari, Shooting Star, Deviation and others have demonstrated regular success in other venues, you don't get that with the folks in Eastchester Bay with any regularity. Sure Thin Man does well and Eagle seems to hold her own on some distance races, Chiaka has flirted with successful seasons, but no where near the extent of the boats in Can One.

 

And don't call me Shirley!

We tried dual scoring under PHRF and IRC a few seasons back. It was difficult to accomplish for a number of reason, the least of which is coming up with ratings for some boats under IRC. You may also note that some of the larger venue races that had drifted away form PHRF in favor of IRC for some of the faster classes, have now reinstated PHRF. While PHRF has some flaws, it has served the racing community well over the past 3 or more decades. Is there another handicap rule which has enjoyed such success in the US?

I said it long ago. Excluding phrf would kill participation for many reasons. Plus newbies dipping their toes into racing one year in phrf are likely to come back the next year in IRC. Some experienced racers only want to come out 2-3 x per year and dont like the IRC cost commitments. They had no other option but to stay home. I;m for having as many people as possible on the water The masters of the universe didnt care about them because it was pre Lehman Brothers and everyone was happy paying $1200 to have a boat weighed by some pirate with a Travelift. There's a place for phrf just like the short bus courses on distance races. Just have to keep their names off the big trophies.

[Hustler had] successful seasons, but no where near the extent of the boats in Can One.

 

When we race at EBRYA we generally sail against other boats our size. However things have changed at EBYRA, I accept that I am wrong and acknowledge your greater knowledge in this matter.

 

We look forward to practicing the ever popular one-tack / one-jybe / reach to the finish races, the trendy and entertaining situation of sending different classes to round the same weather mark in opposite directions, and who would want to miss a race being cancelled because the finish line was only 2 boat lengths long and resulted in a collision.

I'm saving my pokemon cards to buy myself a tp52. At the rate things are going the collection will be big enough by about the time that they'll be giving boats away. It is however exciting to be with soulmates in her next life. A very good bunch of people who have been very kind to me in the past are going to be involved.

Anything longer than 12 words with Snaggy and the effort isn't worth the payoff. Kind of like waiting for dawoody or Mr Clean to put a thought together. Skip it and wait for the next one.

Can One is better than breakwaters for the simple fact that what ever course they may send you on, there is more options to dodge current with the surounding under water structure.

Bill, Hustler doesn't race EBYRA Wednesday Night Series. Fantasy Girl well demonstrates what I was pointing out. You have The Pope and Espo on the boat and they have it wrapped up shortly after mid-season and then they stop sailing! Also, besides EBYRA, what races or series has Fantasy made a mark on?

Many of the rare situations you note have been or are being addressed. I am sure Bill P. commanding C1's own RC boat will go a long way to fixing line issues where when you were on a loaned boat and the owner had a huge say. BP also took it upon himself to do some USSA PRO courses, which we all applaud him for. It is hard to find a person who actually races to be PRO and we are very lucky to have Bill P. onboard. We have also worked out a drop mark that will be experimented with this season. I am confident that will show promise and can be expanded once we get the hang of it. Shame you didn't make the meeting to represent the big D.

And yes, EBYRA has changed quite a bit since you folks used to take Deviation over there each week.

Indeed. They are awaiting a sea trial to finalize. IIRC, Adam is going up there this weekend to help Eric assemble the rig.

The Express was bought by a group of guys at Cedar Point. Some of the old crew got together 10 days or so ago to de-name her. Adam seemed very happy to be turning the page, while Jenni-Jenni was melancholy.

I would have to agree with you Jeff, { I can't believe I just said that} Can 1 has become a better event. EBYRA has been micro managed by it's board and the reps from one of the clubs, the one I am not a memeber of anymore and has let there commadore that club dictate there voting. When ever you get guys from the board making divisions for themselves and others asking to be in a division that they should not be in the organization is doomed. Can 1 over the years have been VERY well run and have pulled the right strings at the right time. If they would just square up the race course as Bill has mentioned, it would be THE best mid night series from the Western end of KIS to Newport. I hope by getting on the EBYRA board as a rep for Moriss Y&B I can get that orgaization reputation up to where Can 1 is now.

The problem with that Cliffie is a couple of those boats didn't sail enough races to qualify, DNSs are not entered, the throw-outs are not applied and YS doesn't publish the places based on Cox Sprague. Aside from that, I can see why you think M may have done better than the podium boats.

What that does show is how tight the racing is. Half the fleet got a bullet in at least one of the races with the top 4 or 5 having multiple wins. Of course no one won more races that Cain.

Sundari is now a Farr400?? what's gonna happen when a Bene 36.7 beats a new Farr400?? B). Maybe Q will still sail even if they can;t win a pickle dish and hopefully Chris Dragon will be a weekly thing..Breakadouche is for sale...bummer, it is fun kicking their ass each week

We all know a C&C 35 is going to win their division again...after 8 races...but will STILL go out there and sail all season...will Milkey Way ever figure out how to get back into her slip before the party is over at Huegonot ;)

 

are the fleet splits the same as last year??

 

there are three U's in SHUT THE FUCK UP :P

I have sailed in both Can One and EBYRA in the last couple years and Can One is the better of the two.

In Can One, the amount of participants on the line are higher as well as the skill level of the competition.

The series are more challenging because of the wider range courses.

In EBYRA it gets old quickly. You head to the Throggs Neck Bridge to get current relief and come back.

There also seems to be camaraderie at Huguenot Yact Club after the race then Morris or Harlem Yacht Club. I don't know too much about the food.

In light air with 140% jibs? Yes it is. You notice it most between 7 and 10 knots or when power reaching.

Both 36.7s also take a crew weight credit on their PHRF certs.

PHRF 78? The base was 84 IIRC. The boat can sail at that in a breeze for the most part. Because of the amount of rocker aft the boat doesn't get up and go. Rather it tries to suck back down into its own hole. It is why some refer to the boat as a beachball. By a breeze I mean 16+ knots. In 12-15 it depends on the course, the small spinnakers do not drive the boat very well. In less than 10 knots, 84 is a hard rating as the boat doesn't sail well or point in light air.

 

What do you think a Soveral 33 should rate Bill? Talk about a license to steal in light air. Between you and some Express 37 owners complaining about ratings.............pot calling kettle.

 

Lee you are right, it is only a beer can series. That doesn't mean anyone is going to let you guys barge.

Damn right it is, "there's no wind, there's too much wind, the ratings are crap, the RC is crap, why didn't my mother hug me more EBYRA is crap, all 105s should sink, there's only one keg on the lawn, etc."

 

How can you not love these conversations?

Sailing Instructions posted (aka Can One 2012 Yearbook & Race Circular)

 

Please note the text in ALL CAPS and bold face which maybe more important than other instructions.

 

"Members are urged [among other things] to become familiar with the Racing Rules"

 

"protests are discouraged except in the event of serious violations" - see page 7 (or 8) for clarification on that I suppose.

 

 

Tradition is OK, but it would help to give even a brief glance at .pdf"]RRS 2009-2012 Appendix J and Appendix L before publishing the Sailing Instructions for a regatta with ostensible "Competition at a fairly high level."

Hell of a first race, though it was a shame attendance was a bit weak in a few divisions.

 

We saw one puff get to 32kts on the beat to the finish and when the scores were FINALLY posted, it was awesome to see Shooting Star on top.

 

The 3U campaign has begun.

You can be skeptical all you like but shit, I didn't see you out there. For the most part it was blowing between 18-22.

$100 for a day race? That deserves a Moosehead all on it's own.

Like the $13 IHYC bag of ice.

Compare Edlu to NYACYC Stratford Shoal Race the following week -- both are "day distance races" that start early, are longer than the average race in the Sound but end by dinner if the breeze isn't terrible.

 

Edlu = $100, 46 boats signed up.

NYACYC = $50, 14 boats signed up.

 

The two are not directly related, but it doesn't appear as though the entry fee is a deterrent. If the entry fee was $50 would there be a lot more entries for the Edlu? Unclear. Maybe one more in your case, but I'm guessing you'd spend a lot more than $100 in food / fuel / beer for the race. People like to beat up YCs for entry fees, but when you look at the overall cost of putting the boat on the line for any given day, it's a fraction of what's involved.

i dont know. edlu is always a bigger more serious race than nyac and you have another week to go for nyac. I doubt $4600 is a fraction of what it costs to run a 32 mile distance race. I get it. its an expensive sport. Tell me what the average 1 day regatta entry fee is? $100 is taking the piss.

NYAC's yacht club is almost an afterthought at this point-lots of power boats over there and the only guy I know who represents the club well in competition now is Lenny on Vamp, and he doesn't keep his boat there. That's not to say that once upon a time there were great sailors there but now, not so much. Larchmont's race is obviously reflecting the club's competitive heritage and active racing sailors in its membership and ties right into the Storm Trysail's Block Island race with the Tuna Trophy for best combined score.
