Hey, how about some predictions for the delivery? We are planning on leaving around 1pm Friday on the Farr headed for Ventucky. Predictions a bit grim the way I see it, although the wind might change to a better direction. What about the freakin hail, cold winds and big seas? Isn't it still summer? Just glad I'm doing it on the Farr and not the J/92, but we should do some radio contact.

 

I assume we will go to the inside guest dock at VYC. Will there be MaiTais waiting? Thanks.

 

Still looking for some real stories on Brennan's bachelor party. 18 Santa Barbara sailors in Cabo for 3 days. I have only been privey to a few. Some tattoo's and only one guy in jail for a short time. Money talks in Mexico. No one seems to want to give me the inside scoop. Anyone want to add stories?

 

It is blowing dogs off chains at my house right now. Wet Weds had some really wierd conditions, big puffs, big swells and vacilating wind so every leg was a tight reach.

The SB team has arrived in Ventucky. The J/24 took the freeway and the Melges is hooked up to the John Deere and ready to tractor down tomorrow. The Farr 40 and J92 took the weather window of opportunity today and the two boats had a pleasant trip down with flat seas and only 5 knots of breeze. Although there are a lot of storm clouds, it's hard to believe that it is all going to turn to shit tomorrow. Heavy downpour, water spouts, big winds? Maybe the weatherman is smokin' something with Bobbo. We shall see.

Great Janer! One correction though... J24 came by sea, shoving off not soon after sunrise–nice morning for a motor sail.

Nope! Been in Re-Hab with Lindsey Lohan and Britney (again!). Cut-off Lows are a bitch. Quite unpredictable, kinda like women.

Just hope that SBYC does better at Ventucky Cup than they did at Lipton Cup (Sorry Larry!).

 

Bobbo

No offense taken. It's fair to say that the skill level at Lipton may differ from the VC. Do you know the difference between a Harley and Hoover?

Actually, I've had good times at both events, but they have nothing in common as far as structure and competition.

 

As for silent bob, it's just more of his inane drivel emitted after a big afternoon of glue sniffing. God he's a bore.

First report on the Ventucky Cup:

I am actually embarrassed to do this report. Lots of great sailors from the Central Coast, Deke, Ryan, Kent, Dirk,Kenny,Grant, Velthon. Top notch crews including Kevin, Eric, Rushing, Andrew, Todd, Chewy, Raegan..the list goes on. Many of us doing this challenge cup for years. Four Yacht Club teams, 8 boats coming from Santa Barbara to do it. WTF happened? Fair amount of rain on the way out, lots of foul weather gear on.

 

A supposedly" paid' Race Committee. The first race was windward 1/2 mile mark, finish. It took us 15 minutes to do the course and Kent's Melges actually finished in front of the Farr 40, really kicking ass. Problem: the RC was eating their pork pie sandwiches and did not notice that we were finishing and did not take times. OK gotta throw that race out.

 

Second race, wind is picking up, lots of interesting cloud formations, trying to read the condition changes, strip off foul weather gear. Line not good. Lot's of fouls at the start. Then another 15 minute race, fun for all the J/24's and Melgi but a bit tough for the Farr 40, short race course, totally askew and set then getter down.

 

Third race, same shit all over again. Fourth race (which was not allowed for in the SI's), no come within hail flag or other proper RC protocal. Same short course only twice around. The whole thing was over by 2:30 pm.

 

I am not sure if the Race Committee could have done a worse job. It was pathetic, bordering on ridiculous. I am not saying that we did not have fun. We did. But being at the dock by 3 pm was kinda early to drink the Mount Gay that we brought along. But we took it in stride and drank it anyway, car pooled back to SBYC and got home by 5 pm.

 

So at this point I think SBYC is ahead, there was a protest against our J/24 team which I think we won.

The Farr 40 has 3 first place finishes. But who knows what surprises will come tomorrow? Hey,we love Ventucky Cup..we all made an effort to be there, now get some race committee who can make it a legitimate regatta. The folks doing the hospitality at VYC are great but I think the gals selling t-shirts could do a better job at race committee than the yahoos who are doing it now. GEEZ

 

We'll be back tomorrow. Could we get one leg that is longer than 1/2 mile so I could drink my Latte?

Thanks to all the sailors doin it. The race committee, not so much.

Jane,

 

I agree that the RC could have done a better job. I'm embarrassed and I'm hanging my head in shame. About all I can say right now is that next year will be different and I hope better.

Dear Diary,

Slept in till noon.

Watched "Home Alone" with Zoe.

Gee it's raining outside, should I put another log in fire?

Maybe I should have another cup of coffee and think about it.

Dang this couch is comfy.

OMG its already time for lunch!

Wonder how those guys are doing at Ventura Cup.

Made the best sandwich!

Took that nap that I rarely get to do, what a great rainy day to stay indoors.

I am sure I will here how great a day it was in Ventura,

That's all for now Diary

Micheal,

I would be happy to help next year as would other Santa Barbara folks who do alot of race management. Today many of us talked about the old stories of Ventura Cup. The event has gone on for years and in some ways we love it. We love sailing against the boats and skippers who have been there for the last 20 years. But poor race management is really sad for those of us who travel to do this regatta. Please introduce yourself and let me or SBYC team know what we can do to make this regatta stay alive. Everything is there, good racing conditions, good sailors, volunteers. nice folks at VCY. A perfect set up for a great regatta, except that the race committee...well pretty much..is not making this look like a well run regatta to say the least. Thanks for your response.

While I agree that the lines were crooked, first race was a mistake and short courses tough for the bigger boats, you still couldn't pay me enough to do RC on a day like today... So thanks to those who did it! Tomorrow is another day.

 

As for protests, they suck. Sorry that we had to go to the room, but all's well that ends well - just wish it wasn't with our old boat...

Hey guys life could be worse than wet day racing with the typical Ventucky courses.

 

I spent the day cleaning the garage.

 

Sounds like you are all sailing up too you potential, good job.

 

What was the call to the principals office all about? Who talked in the room? Raegan? she could sell margaritas to Priests.

Props to all who came down, and up,

 

Yes, the first race shoulda, coulda have been abandoned on the racecourse. Screwiest race I've ever been in in my life (except for the last race we did in SB, when less than one boat length across the start line, the skip shouts, "HOIST!!!" "What, the spinnaker????? WTF???". Yes, the winds can change. Who wouldda figured a headstay reach on the "downwind" leg (not that you Melgi sailors would notice...)? Oh well, post-front crap... I'm still embarassed that the RC had to toss out the first screwy race because of their missteps, but, if any race had to be tossed, that was the one. Things on the RC will tighten up tomorrow. I, too, wish that the courses had been longer on one of the best sailing days (clear skies, sparkly water, good wind, flat seas) anyone could possibly hope for.

 

Thump- sorry you had to encounter a long session in the room. Same to Evans. Hopefully everyone walks away ok. No changes in the results. First protest in three years.

 

Combo team- good going for the first day

 

Janer- I bought a lot of beer for Saturday's post race , but I still owe you a Mai-Tai. I sail on Jaded. Look me up, and we'd like to talk to you and anyone else (later) about how to improve...

 

As they say, tomorrow's another day; let's see who's a good Sunday sailor.......

Janer, Love you.... And yes, we did win the protest so I believe the SBYC team is 3 points ahead of the three other teams right now. My first protest room attendance tonight; what an experience. Thank you to the VYC hosts and all sailors for attending the event and to the weather gods for not raining on us on the water. It was looking "iffy" for a while on the dock. Dinner was held at an old favorite--Casa De Soria on Thompson Avenue off of Seaward. They have the most amazing margaritas & Mexican food!! YUM!! We'll see ya'll in the AM!!

Well they did it,they kicked our butts in the final race. So Ventura Yacht Club has the Cup back. Good job you all, good commaradrie at the end. Much better RC work today and really nice trophies. We need to work together to make this a good regatta next year. Team racing is fun. Gatherer thanks for the Mai Tai. I know you put alot of effort into this and all of us from Sb appreciate you and the others that did the same. I was just surprised that you followed up on your promise via SA on the cocktail and that you are damn good looking. We had fun, thank you.

I saw the photos on the club board tonight but forgot to write down the link. Great shots, though. Please pass the link up if you've got it.

 

I agree, great competition. Glad to throw it down on the water and leave it there. Let's do it again!!!!!

 

The Farr has it tough, sailing against themselves, looking over the stern trying to figure out how they're doing. Favorite book must be the "Polar Express". Good job for the nth year in a row!

 

If I can dare speak for Ryan, me thinks the boat likes him.... 1st regatta???? WTF????

 

Re- Eric and the FT- you guys rocked, and we're happy for you. Good ride, good program. Congrats on getting the top non-SB boat award! I've never seen a bigger smile on Tex, and even Shrek seemed cuddly. You owe Scot some props for the sails....

 

On behalf of VYC, thank you to everyone who showed up, dressed up, and put out. For those who are negative, thank you for staying away. One of the most beautiful weekends I've had on the water. Makes me happy to have the opportunity to sail in one of God's great corners of the world. Mother Nature rocks! (Deke does, too!!!)

I've never had such a gracious note. Thanks for bringing all your friends to play, and as I forgot to say over the mic, "Thanks to everyone for playing nice".

 

Yeah, we did kick some booty in the last race, but I didn't hear until I was leaving the parking lot about the Committee Boat "dial-up" in the last start. We started at the pin with the Tiger. We had the pleasure of getting rolled by them ("Please, make it merciful") and then tacked on by you ("###@&**&^%, Thanks a lot!"), but the left proved right. We missed all the commotion over at the boat end, but you have to talk to those that were there to find out the whole story. Gosh, you're right, team racing is fun!!!!

We could see some of the "dial-up manuver" as we were gallopin' away. In Ventucky it's called the WTF manuver. It's like the wrangler cutting out one of the cattle. The J/92 decided to take down the J/35, cut her out of the herd and pinned her outside the committee boat for quite a while. The bovine got real spooked and was able to escape eventually and tripped up the wrangler on its way out, leaving the cow poke choking on the dust and exclaiming "WTF!"

 

Does that clear it up for you?

I hope everyone had a great time. If there is anything we can do to make the event better please let us know.

Thanks to Sam for taking the J24 back up to SB, and to Dirk for towing her. SO GLAD to be returning to the M24 this Wednesday, that's for sure. I've got boat-bites on my boat-bites from this weekend. J's are tough!

The Sea Shell event is Saturday the 6th, you're right, K9. If anyone wants tickets you can PM me and I'll put you in contact with their ticket guru. Tix are $25 per person.

 

Thumper will also be open for tours on "N-finger" by Blues Crews, so definitely grab some tix and check out our M24... part of the newest growing fleet in SB!!

Hey Janer -

 

Lighten up! Heck, you gave me the idea:

 

http://www.sailinganarchy.com/forums/index...amp;pid=1214205

 

If you want to promote sailing in SB, the yacht club, SBSC and the Sea Shells - that's great! Well done! But please try and behave yourself. Leading by example is a good thing. As a start, try not denigrating others while promoting yourself. Some people may actually read (and believe) what you post.

 

I'll be watching!

The final Wet Wednesday of the year was gorgeous with good breez and full moon rising. We beat Taxi Dancer but they still came out on top for the series. Charlie's J/80 Nalu Pua was first in B Class for the 3rd Wet Weds Series and Misbehavin' got first in the C Class. Repeat Offender won the J/105 Class in the series; 3 Big Dogs barely took first away from Depends in J/24 Class and Average White Boat Melonheads barely beat out Thumper in the Melges.

 

It's always kind of a downer when Wet Wednesday ends for the year :(

Have you had your power drink yet this morning? BowClown is on OUR team for god's sake. Wake up man.

The doc is on no one's team. It's just disturbing that an asshat would use the name sbycsailor.

 

True quote out of this morning's Daily Sound:

"Celebrity Sighting - Dr. Laura was seen looking for herself at restaurants in Santa Barbara"

 

That's pretty funny.

 

Back to the Sea Shells, amongst other things I am donating a new Mt. Gay hat for the silent aution. Anyone with other offerings can PM me or Prez.

Kelp,

 

You're right...you really don't fit into their moldy mold and I'm sure you're not sharing bong hits with them and destroying synapses. Sorry, I should not have included you in there.

 

As far as education, I've got Dave Perry lined up to do a racing seminar early next year, hope to see you there. More details coming up.

 

Other good news: It's Friday

Final Margarita Race tomorrow, skippers meeting at 1200, who's going? Big turnout for first one, second not so much, third...?

 

Momentum building on the Melges fleet, boat five has officially arrived and waiting on its hydro-hoist arrival, boat six is being shopped for, and out of left field another local boat may be on it's way for number seven! Sorry, can't provide any more detail than that, but critical mass is building!

Pound Sand?

 

A Farr owner says that frequently!

Hijack,

 

Goblin is coming!

 

Yes, it is! Let's get lotsa boats out for that one. There was good party last year. They didn't have race results until late in the party, though. Maybe a sell-some-drinks strategy?

There is a shit load of boats coming this year! May have to limit it.

The results WILL be timely this year, it is a focus.

The party should be great, good band.

I'm confused

What does "pound sand" mean?

 

 

From the Urban Dictionary

 

1-"The origin of the expression go pound sand is from a longer expression, not to know (have enough sense to) pound sand down a rathole. Filling rat holes with sand is menial work, and telling someone to pound sand down a hole is like telling them to go fly a kite. The expression dates to at least 1912 and is common in the midwestern United States."

 

Or

 

2-"to tell someone to fuck off"

 

Or

 

 

3-"A term used when annoyed with a person"

 

 

 

I believe option number 2 is being used by sbycsailor

You're a sycophant (a word I learned recently on another SA thread).

 

Go pound sand!

Wow- I'm flattered...

 

Now I've got to go out and fire up the D-8, git that blade a-thumpin', and git them seismographs hummin'....

And yet another example of Janer's crew of rats attempting to flee ---

 

WAIT!

 

A 24-hour LA news helicopter reports seeing Janer spotted in a white Ford Bronco heading south ...

 

Safe journey!

Max,

I am assuming October 27 & 28? I-14's, PHRF, J/24??? What's the scoop.

 

 

CHRF, PHRF, J 24, Lasers, Melges 24, I 14's, Hobie (Hartecks buddies), Sunfish Worlds qualifier...

that's all I can remember so far.

Racers may want to attend the monthly Sail Policy Committee meeting this Thursday at 5:30. Main topic will be next year's race schedule and some changes are being presented; such as changing the Spring Summer and Fall Series to One Design only and Margarita Series to PHRF only. Anyway, if you have an opinion, be there. It will be interesting to see the logic on these ideas and we are open to suggestions.

Gotta watch Ron and Pete too. They are in Seattle at the I-14 US Nationals. Had some trouble getting there after doing the British I-14 Championship. Pete's got a thread going here with the saga.
