Guys - its very simple. Organize a block of votes. Tell your board of elected directors to include an item at the business meeting, which this year will be part of the awards dinner in October. Your elected directors will present the question to the membership. There will be a vote. The result of the vote will determine the rating spread. Its that simple. No secret polls or ballots or anything else. At the same time, it won't be changed by the board absent a vote of the membership unless it is very clear that a concensus has developed. At this time, there is a sufficient split on the issue that board action absent a vote is unlikely.

Ugh, please don't put this on the agenda at the awards banquet. I realize it's the time when there is the most GMORA members gathered onshore and I whole heartedly agree that as many voices as possible should be heard on the subject, but - if we start on this we won't get anything else done.

 

On the other hand, I strongly urge any and all interested GMORA members to contact other interested members to assult the GMORA board and either get on the agenda of a regular meeting or request a special meeting to discuss the issue.

 

As SShow said, the board won't make a change without a clear concensus and like Kitty said, it's no sacred cow. Everyone wants to make it as much fun as possible but where the has to be compromise, someone won't get their way. That's why there has to be a vote (and WAS a vote this year) and we all have to acknowledge it's the best choice for all concerned.

I hope this changes; It would be nice to have some breeze.

 

Sat

W winds around 5 kt...becoming S in the afternoon. Seas 2 to 3 ft.

Sat Night

SW winds 5 to 10 kt. Seas 2 to 3 ft.

 

Is the start really at 11:15 or some nonsense? Looks like we will be working on on tan Sat. afternoon.

To the Board of GMORA...

 

After the 2006 season a group of good looking owners would like a special meeting called to discuss the rating bands for the upcoming season.

 

We acknowedge that if we do not show up or voice our opinion at the special meeting we will STFU for the next year.

 

Yours Truely,

Kitty, you are man of honor and integrity. I acknowledge your request.

 

As for the timing, it should come very soon after the 2006 season so that we can come to some sort of concensus before the annual meeting/awards banquet. That way we can have a vote with as much of the membership as possible in attendance but without an uncontrollable amount of discussion.

Now, to hijack this thread for a moment-

 

Who is planning on doing the now famous Admiral Perry "Get There Any Way Possible" Race?

 

Just wondering how many boats and how long the finish line might be up.

I believe that it is going to be a sailing race, Stickboy. Don't get me wrong stickboy if there is only a knot of wind then D-Sail to the nearest bar at warp speed 4.

 

I believe that we are going to take our own times .

HYC has volunteered to start the race and score it.

 

Let's talk about start times and finish line. The starting line should, in my opinion, be inside Eagle Island.

Maybe the finish line should be a range between the Cuckcolds and Fishermand point (or a government mark up there.)

 

What do you guys want

Thanks to Kitty to arrange start. As the NOR states:

 

Schedule of Events:

Check in with committee no later than 1114

Six-minute sequence starts at 1129

DIV 3 1135

DIV 2 1145

DIV 1 1155

 

Courses and Means of Propulsion:

Course is 20.0 nm. Start shall be on Broad Sound southwest of Eagle Island. Near (Gong G”1”)

COURSE:

Appropriately: Drunkard’s Ledge must be left to Port. While you are at it, leave nearby

R N “2” to Port as well. (There appears to be a 4-foot spot inside of that mark!)

Sequin Island must be left to Port and ALL other navigational marks need to be honored!

One is allowed to run one’s said engine for one hour should the wind conditions drop below 5

knots. Racing class is ‘suggested’ to not use their engines in event of light wind conditions.

El Ocho motors at over seven knots, Finish shall be between Cuckold’s Light and (G ”1C”) All boats will be finished by 1800. No

finish Committee shall be present so the vessel’s skipper is responsible for logging his own GPS

time and contacting the race officials at Hawk’s in Boothbay by 1915 or 1930

Awesome!

 

The melges 24 is 'the shape of things to come' for the future of sailing in the Gulf of Maine.

Small sportboats like this are perfect for sailing day races in Maine and one can easiliy haul it out and trailer away to warmer climits come winter for great OD racing!

Not sshow, Kitty. Bob at BHYC had volunteered to finish people, but neither stickboy nor I can remember where we read that! CRS doncha know.

 

And Max... I hope you will trust us low-tech cruising class boats to guesstimate when winds are below 5 knots -- we have no fancy wind instruments to give us true velocity.

I put in a vote that next year the Peary Trophy Race be raced under pirate rules... i.e. Get there as fast as possible, using whatever means at your disposal, sails, engine, tow, trailer, etc. Then let the lying begin. The least believable, but most sincere, liar with the fastest time, wins. So if you sound convincing when you say that a mighty gust swept you onto the highway and onto a trailer... Or that you couldn't turn the engine off because there was a bomb attached that would explode if your speed fell below 6 knots... Or if you have NO idea how that tow line got attached to that cigarette boat... You get the idea.

Whiplash and Tom Hall made out like crazy... Winning A and B... Decent breeze and very little rain. The Ocho would have enjoyed the conditions... Lots of beer on Wiley and I think we made a respectable showing, coming in after Merle and just ahead of Revo^2. HYC throws a good party too. There was some sort of yellow rice thing with sausage, chicken, and shrimp that was to die for, as well as beer and chips... All up, a very nice day of racing.

Yo G / Suider / Ocho Crew

 

Please help me. I would like to purchase one of those utra-swank REVO OCHO workshirts. You know... the short sleeve button up with the mechanic style patches. Those are hella cool and I want one ASAP. I will pay $$$. This is not a hoax. Please help me. Perhaps this would require contacting Les Monsieurs Marchants?

 

Saint

AFAIK, maxluff is the only one that has one of the shirts, and i'm not even sure he has one that says 'el ocho', although we most certainly should get them....... you reading this max?

 

our foulies have the mechanic-style patches...

 

/c

 

Yes, Indeed our stylish crew gear, aka Ronstan Lightweight Inshore jackets do have the forementioned 'El Ocho' gas attendent style patch. I understand your confusion as G was looking so sexy that afternoon.

 

Unfortunately at this time we do not have the button down black DICKIES shirts.

 

Perhaps if everyone throws down $ I will arrange for my East LA contacts to produce more custom 'El Ocho' patches to be placed on black button down Dickies shirts. My cost would of about $25.00 for a quantity of six...

 

post-5090-1151593031_thumb.jpg

 

I'm in.

 

XL

 

Pay you at PHRF's

 

-Saint

 

Done and we should see said shirts prior to Boozebay Regatta! ($30 w/ shipping and stitching.)

 

Update on El Ocho shirts:

 

Black Dickie Shirts are here.

Name patches sent out from my East LA contact on Wed. (I am not talking about Lewiston Auburn here!)

Shirts to tailor first of the week.

 

That means EL OCHO evening wear will be out in force on Friday at Hawk's in Boozebay.

Admiral Peary Race -

 

OK in the spirit of the race how close is everyone going to follow the NOR? For Example leave Seguin to Port, I always cut inside....just asking in the slim event that I save my time someone might try to deprive me of the trophy :lol:

 

Not that this trophy won't be shared with all participating racers. My plan is to get Kitty and Dirt Dog so hammered on Friday night they look green on Saturday....maybe just maybe I'll be able to keep them on my side of the horizon. Nice job this weekend guys.

 

PS Haji very nice job this season...I'm psyched for Ed.

Just received this email...much better course:

 

VHF: Channel #72

 

Warning at 10:50 and Prep at 10:55

 

11:00 start

 

I do not have any flags etc. I will give a series of short blasts on an air horn 1 minute before that start squence with a long blast at 10 minutes, 5 minutes and the start. I will use GPS times.

 

The course:

Start off Eagle Island RN #2 (port end of line)

Round Broad Sound Bell "BS" to port

Round Cuckolds Bell "1C" to port

Finish off Tubbler Is. 4 sec flasher "8"

(presumably that will be left to starboard)

 

course distance is 24.15 miles

Thanks Soggy. The Revo II gang is great, a real bunch of characters...it's been fun to see them really get their "game face" going. Hell, yesterday there were only 2 beers onboard! Ed was so happy after the first race on Sunday (bullet) he said it was his best race ever on the boat. Actually we credit all success to the better food onboard this year....

 

Wish I could make the Admiral Peary race this friday (that's what it's called, right?) but turns out I definitely have to go to the Solo Sailing Hall of Fame gig at the Museum of Yachting in Newport this Friday. No, they're not "inducting" me but I'm supposed to talk to some people there. Hope it's worth the $ for the gas....

Thanks Soggy. The Revo II gang is great, a real bunch of characters...it's been fun to see them really get their "game face" going. Hell, yesterday there were only 2 beers onboard! Ed was so happy after the first race on Sunday (bullet) he said it was his best race ever on the boat. Actually we credit all success to the better food onboard this year....

 

 

 

Wish I could make the Admiral Peary race this friday (that's what it's called, right?) but turns out I definitely have to go to the Solo Sailing Hall of Fame gig at the Museum of Yachting in Newport this Friday. No, they're not "inducting" me but I'm supposed to talk to some people there. Hope it's worth the $ for the gas....

 

Have fun in Newport, just make sure that your on Revo2 for the start on Sat. I was speaking with Ed on the phone today, Friday night before Southport sounds like fun.

So - any boats got room for two pick-up crew this weekend? We'll be at Bbay, but not racing our boat this year.

Admiral Peary Race -

 

OK in the spirit of the race how close is everyone going to follow the NOR? For Example leave Seguin to Port, I always cut inside....just asking in the slim event that I save my time someone might try to deprive me of the trophy :lol:

Just received this email...much better course:

 

VHF: Channel #72

 

Warning at 10:50 and Prep at 10:55

 

11:00 start

 

I do not have any flags etc. I will give a series of short blasts on an air horn 1 minute before that start squence with a long blast at 10 minutes, 5 minutes and the start. I will use GPS times.

 

The course:

Start off Eagle Island RN #2 (port end of line)

Round Broad Sound Bell "BS" to port

Round Cuckolds Bell "1C" to port

Finish off Tubbler Is. 4 sec flasher "8"

(presumably that will be left to starboard)

 

course distance is 24.15 miles

 

Come on Soggy, keep Seguin to port!! Better sailing to seaward anyway without the Kennebec River slop.

 

Stickboy and I need a hand, though. We plan to sail the boat up together Friday and leave her in the Boothbay area for the Southport race the following weekend. So we need a ride back to Freeport on Sunday night. Anyone got room (preferably in a car)?

I figure that I'll be motor sailing with the inflatable also fired up as the "after burner"...after all G said it was OK. "The shortest distance between two points is a great circle."

Propulsion: Yes (smoke 'em if ya got 'em)

 

Class Breaks: No (c'mon)

No way. You are clearly not the winner if you get there first. You win when enough people have been there long enough before you to get drunk enough to keep buying rounds once you get there.... mmm.... Dr. McGillicuddies...

Becareful, if it's a constant left hand turn on the way to Boothbay people will think we're racing NASCAR.

Sounds good. Thanks to Bill and HYC for making this thing happen. I relinquish all RC control to HYC and will be responsible for the 'trophies'....

I understand that there is a scoring error in the final race last weekend.

 

It did not change overall finish for regatta and probably not overall points for season

 

Maybe Stickboy could comment and tell us when we shoulsd expect season scoring to be updated...

Hi Stick -

 

If you want to send me the final results for the Harraseeket and PHRF/OD races, I can crunch the numbers in Excel for the Rinderl points.

Guys - Stick is out of town for a few days. I don't know whether he has the data with him. If so, I'll ask him to send it to me and I'll publish it to the site. Otherwise, we may be SOL for a few.

No, I need the individual results from days one and two of the regatta, since GMORA scores by day, not regatta. I don't have that - unless its online somewhere I haven't noticed.

The Rinderle tallies are only updated to the Pilots, I think. Stick thought he had sent the points through Harraseeket to our exec cmte web liaison, but perhaps the spreadsheet got lost in cyberspace.

 

Stickboy had to do a quick touch-and-go at home Sunday night -- had no time to do the Rinderle points before heading out. He is currently on a work retreat at some campy but elegant estate on LongGiland (NY). He may well have the data with him. If he calls I'll ask him to forward it on to sshow.

 

Soggy, either sshow or I can float your proposal by him. Do you have Sailwave on your 'puter? You might need that... or not. Maybe he can do a quick conversion of the results to Excel and just send you the files.

Soggy - If you're willling to help, we'll keep you in the pocket for a few if you don't mind.

 

C Koch - I have sailwave if I get the data from Stickboy.

 

All - Sorry about failing to have HYC results up.... thought I'd done it, then tuned the concept out. We'll get back on track asap.

Who's racing short handed with a kite? I'm thinking about it - could be a nice spinnaker reach most of the way. I can't open .pdf files at the moment so could someone confirm I can use my autohelm if I'm solo?

sshow... just looked at the results on the PYC site. If Stickboy hasn't sent you the stuff, you can figure out which races were done on which days by looking at the start times (at least for Classes A B and C).

 

A little strange the cruising class results are not up there, but considering our suboptimal performance, I shouldn't complain! B)
