Manhasset Fall Series

Recommended Posts

Time to start thinking about manning up . Disturbing trend of LI boats running home to hide under the porch after American Fall . All the moaning about light air sailing in LIS and than weak turnout for the regatta which consistantly has the biggest breeze every year. Take a chance , break some stuff you have all winter to fix it.

Hey I'm just saying WTF.

No, they rate 93 phrf OD rating, I'm willing to race them straight up.

Come on I start 5 minutes behind them and beat most of the across the line at least this gives me a fair shot against them now.

Unfortuately we've seen them! :o

  • Late at the boat with jib furled
  • Late at the boat
  • Locked out at the boat
  • OCS
  • Wrapped around the pin

Did I miss anything?

  • If you're late at the boat with no way to shut the door, just scream real loud & pout for the first 100 yards up the course. (or at least until the Skip clear ahead of you questions his own position)

Come on people less than 2 weeks to go, the late fees have already kick in, SIGN UP!

At one time this was the premeire event of the fall with the more entries than any other event, in my eyes it still is the best run and most fun event of the fall.

The race committee unlike American YC are very friendly and actually respond when asked a question and take advise from the racers. There mark boats don't get in the way at the weather mark and when they are re setting the starting pin between races the mark don't have some bitch driving it yelling at the sailboats with just there mainsails up in 4 knots of breeze to get out of her way, if you want to continue racing.

 

Oh did I say they also have a consistant formula for giving out the overall awards, it's not some arbitary bullshit, at the discresion of the RC crap like AYC does.

I have more reason for signing up but I think I coverd the most important ones.

The spookie/sundari, benj/troll match up should be fun to watch.

Why?

 

post-420-0-25140500-1349291543_thumb.jpg

 

Don't you people have jobs?

 

This is what you do when you have a job. You, on the other hand, are in college, and should be spending every spare second you have trying to get laid. Hanging on sailing forums with a bunch of old men wont help. ;)

As certain as the leaves turn color and 40 knot gusts come funneling down Mount Shippan on to The Cows, and young men shit their pants on the bow each October, the Mooshead Awards are right around the corner.

 

Get your nominations in!

 

And dont forget, there are awards for excellent regatta administration and R/C work, as well as for screwups.

 

So rat on your friends before they rat on you.

No weather predictions yet? Usually y'all are all over this by now. Breeze or no breeze?

It's better to wait until you're in start sequence to make sure the trim job is extra fresh. I like my nuts as smooth as ping pong balls.

Hmm, the IRC class is the same size as the PHRF Non-Spinn class? how sad, I seem to recall somebody standing at the podium at last years award ceremony saying they would re-vitalize the MBFS IRC fleet in 2012.

 

The low turnout has nothing to do with the quality of the races or the party afterwards.

The race starts tomorrow and the lack of banter is disturbing. Here are my predictions...there will be very little wind, we'll be celebrating the Yankees making it to the ALCS (because Girardi finally got smart and benched the drama queen) and I'm going to get drunk.

Ok, I have a question. How does Breakaway the 36.7 sail at different events with different ratings. The rule for PHRF on WLIS is 1 rating change to you certificate per year. You can't decide to sail 1 event with your #1 and another with your #3

Doesn't anybody that sails against them have a fucking clue? We have rules and nobody follows them, nor do the competitors know whats going on out there.

They sail at 84 SOMETIMES and 90 SOMETIMES. WTF???
