Is the NOR requirements the reason your boat won't be ready?

No, not really. Under going a total refit by Gilles Combrisson and crew at GC Marine after 34 years of hard racing. However, when done she will meet the NOR requirements (after the additional expenditure of a few boat $ of course).

We're checking the new requirements list to make sure we are compliant before we enter. Since the boat is for sale (Bullet, Express 37), we'll be making the race/not race decision closer to the date based on the weather, no point in breaking anything when it's all pristine and shipshape right now.

Answering a question from elsewhere on MMSI numbers and also some update:

 

The CG and the RC have the MMSI numbers through Jibeset IIRC. We are not intending to publish/ share them as a group to the group but its an interesting topic.

 

BAMA Links page

http://www.sfbama.org/links.html

 

has more links on the topic including a DSC simulator.

 

Early registration discount extended through Friday. You should be able to be ready for the race in time especially if you've done it before with minimal cost and effort.

 

The NOR/SI are the controlling document and were constructed in a manner to minimize cost, extensive boat modifications, and mandatory prescheduled seminars while improving safety through alternative means based on the realities of incidents in the Gulf of The Farallones and the realities of new technology and procedures.

 

See Farallones stories for more info http://www.sfbama.org/fs/index.html

 

You are encouraged to attend the Skipper's meeting

http://www.sfbama.org/2013/dhf/index.html

 

Have a great race!

 

 

I know its early and this isn't a marine forecast...but...

Forecast seems to be settling more on the mellow end of the spectrum?

BTW, DHF 2012 shirts will be available to pick up at the skippers meeting or by arrangement at Evie too sailing in Alameda marina. If you don't pick it up by the skippers meeting- we have some bidders waiting for the unclaimed!

The SSS Corinthian awards (and LongPac discussion) will be starting at 8-ish, per the email from the Commodore. I think a few people will be sneaking out the back of the DHF meeting to head that way.

Rumor is that meeting was delayed to 8ish? You could always sneak back to EYC afterwards :) for Q&A

S to SW winds pick up with Waddell, HMB, Ocean Beach, TI, Berkeley, Pt. Isabel, and Point Potrero reaching some upper teens. However, gusty conditions likely amidst clouds and showers."

Yes that soggy-ass low is expected to just kind of hang out there for days and days.

 

Fleet divisions are up, and are interesting. 48 entries in 9 Divisions, no ULDB division, and 13 trophies to be awarded. If they combined Div3 and Div5, Div 4 and Div 7, and Div6 and Div 9 they could give out 14 trophies.

 

Kimmy, Annika and I will be gunning you for that mixed-gender award!

By hook or crook,,, or just 12 hours of sailing...

 

We we're doing quite well until the wind shut down about eight miles out... And then the ebb set up against us... :-)

1st - Hats off to any who have done this race (ever)

 

Not baiting, Just wondering - What if anything you did differently this race based on events over the past year

 

I would imagine everyone has in the past done everything they could in prep and execution of plans made in advance

 

would be nice to hear from those who did this years race - their thoughts before, during and after the race

 

just guessing a nice window (not saying easy) to run out and back

 

Glad everyone made it home !!!!!!!!

 

My asking is based on thinking this race is one that puts All crew closer to the edge than any other California race N or S

Da-Woody,

1) The DHF race is early in the year

This means a higher likelihood of hitting a winter storm or unstable conditions (out the gate during winter can be even nastier than a bad summer storm) -- even inside the gate there are (rare) winter storms when racing is cancelled (memorably with boats tipping over in their cradles and storm swells extending over seawalls into whatever used to be behind them).

2) Some of the teams are, as a whole, and completely understandably, likely less experienced than the single-handed version of the same course.

This does not reflect poorly on BAMA (the OA) in any way -- they are the first to work on building towards safety, communications, and appropriate decision making while acknowledging very real adverse potential.

3) Very few folks have a lot of time spent sailing back and forth to the Farrallones

Almost every time I race in and out of the Gate I learn new things about how currents and wind patterns respond to their respective geographies and the conditions of the day.

-- even fewer folks have extensive time on task when the conditions are truly unfavorable.

-- even when retiring one still has to make the decision of if, how, and where, to re-enter the bay.

4) for many events (not just Farallones) there is a post-event discussion not so much on wind but on the wave conditions

-- at the DHF skippers meeting three of the four panelists addressed waves (location/swell/size/pressure/shape/torque/...) as a more serious / causal event than wind (the last was a line squall that pitchpoled a cat).... with this in mind, the potato patch is the shoaling (north side) from the outflow of SF bay.... with predictable wave effects. Both the patch and south bar have been the location of sinkings and numerous rudder failures.

 

[whodathunk... waves in the ocean... chance of 1 in a million...]

Here are US Sailing proposed requirements. Thoughts on ocean (20 nm) vs coastal (within 20 nm) vs BAMA DHF

The Farallones are 20 nm from nearest shore point (Reyes, Dux)

US Sailing Proposes US Safety Equipment Requirements


A goal of US Sailing’s Safety at Sea Committee has been to overhaul the Offshore Special Regulations (OSR) so that they become more popular for race organizers, and more understandable to owners and boat inspectors. Based on some excellent initial work by the Northern California Ocean Racing Council in 2012, a task force has been working on a simplified list of equipment and boat characteristics that will serve the needs of the majority of coastal and offshore racers.

The key differences between the proposed US Safety Equipment Requirements (USSER) and the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) OSRs are as follows:

1. The requirements are easier for yacht owners and pre-race inspectors to understand.
2. The requirements are self-contained and do not refer to external documents.
3. The number of categories has been reduced from seven to three: Near Shore, Coastal, and Ocean. Race organizations can then add or delete gear requirements based on the nature of their individual races.
4. The requirements are more specific about certain pieces of gear that lacked definition in the OSRs.
5. The OSRs contained both recommendations and requirements which proved confusing to users, and which increased the size of the document. The recommendations have been removed from the new version.
6. The requirements are far more compact, and can easily be included in their entirety in a Notice of Race or on a yacht club website.

US Sailing wants your input on the proposed requirements. You can download a spreadsheet with the new requirements and instructions on how to provide input. Please return the spreadsheet by email with your comments and feedback to equipment_feedback@ussailing.org before September 23, 2013.

Greetings,

Thanks for participating in DHF 2013.

Since the shirt design (below) was tied to the results and the results were dependent on protests, the awards meeting slipped which caused many of you not to have a chance to pick up your shirts. Sorry about that! We stopped that design approach for 2014 ;-)

Through the generosity of SSS and OYC we were able to get some more shirts to the rightful owners last Wed.

OYC has agreed to support 2 more opportunities for shirt pickup at their Wed night OYC Sweet 16 race/dinner. This Wed and next..hopefully they'll all be gone by then!

Stop by to mingle, have some BBQ and/or a drink and pick up your shirts while supplies last. If you or your crew can't make it, perhaps a friend in Alameda or a participant in the Sweet 16 series could?


All the 2014 shirts have been distributed to the racers btw and nearly all the 2012.


Thanks!

Bob
