      A Few Simple Rules-Abbreviated   07/27/2017

      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, abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  If you continually report things that do not fall into 1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout 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.

Day 6 - It's All Down To This

141 posts in this topic

We are busting our asses out to the course as I write. A bright sunny day has beaten the rainy forecasts down, and it's blowing 12 knots from the SW on these shimmering, glimmering Mediterranean waters. The top 5 boats all have a shot, and one bad race will end their chances, and we will be here for every bit of the action.

 

Thanks for tuning in - enjoy the hell out of today's racing. We will.

 

Huge thanks to Ullman Sails for bringing this coverage to you, and to Joe Fly for providing us with the technology to make it the very best OTW Anarchy we've done yet.

 

We have some awesome interviews for you too from last night and this morninng, but they're long as hell, so check back for them. In the mean time, we're just 30 minutes from the first warning.

 

Here are the current standings in Gold Fleet and Silver Fleet.

 

There are no more throwouts.

Luigi is giving everyone five minutes to ping the pins. More and more guys are using Velociteks to ping the start lines. In one year, the entire Melges fleet will be using either the Vtek or Rockbox or another alternative - the advantage is that significant. The biggest problem is the RC dealing with all the competitors sailing right next to them to get their ping (they have to sit next to the flag for 3 seconds).

 

 

Sorry - to explain, they just had a general recall, and now they've reset, and Luigi is giving them five minutes. Maybe a dozen guys have the start line 'puters now. Next year it will be all of them.

Monsoon and Brantolo win the boat and blaze off on the right, which paid big during the late races yesterday. Cotes D'armour gets totally shut out and has to tack and gybe around, starting 40 seconds late. Joe Fly, Uka Uka, Sevenstar start in the middle right in clearer air. We are in planing conditions, but not fast ones. Wednesday and Thursday we were flat out trying to get to the borrom mark in time for the drops - today may not be that much trouble, though the wind is already picking up a bit.

Joe Fly is heading out to the FAR RIGHT with no one else, and it looks like there is definitely a new pressure line out here. There is no one else even close, though Carlos is the next boat to the right. Crazy flier!

Joe Fly is out of the race. We don't know why yet, though they did have the kite halyard hang up on the jib drum at the hounds on the drop. They're sailing upwind with only a main, and just radioed Luigi...shit!

Results are up, and it looks like it's going to be hard for anyone to catch Uka Uka. Then again, it's damned easy for anyone, including Bressani, to get screwed at the start and lose 20 places.

 

Here's the last top rounding I think from Race 10.

Blu Moon, Altea, Rocard, Code Zero all over early, with HUGELY costly return to the ends. Blu Moon just lost its chance to win this regatta, and Uka Uka will clinch it with two decent races.

Joe Fly broke something on their mast - my guess is that it's the ever-problematic jib sheave that a bunch of boats have already broken. There's a fix from Melges, but it's still no good. Look for that to change this year at some point. Harry and Andy tried to get a zipper luff system passed at the AGM last year, but it didn't pass, and there's still no good solution. Harry's idea was a T-ball at the hounds to replace the current wire halyard and sheave, with the sail going up on a zipper.

 

Sad result, and tough regatta for Joe Fly, who just won the very tight Italian Nationals just three weeks ago here in Sardinia at Cagliari.

From our shore crew: "Joe Fly in marina - out of the races for remainder. The owner (can't remember his name) looked so dejected I wanted to hug him. He didn't know the word in English but he said something serious broke and couldn't be repaired in a short time - something about where the mast attaches to the boat but couldn't get more info. from him. he really didn't want to talk. don't blame him. and I was getting bummed doing computer work in the yacht club. guess he's gotta be REALLY bummed.

 

Go Carlo and Hoochy Coochy!"

 

Giovanni is such a sweet guy, and so hugely passionate about racing, and this sucks ass. Maybe he'll switch to Ullman now...

Greetings from Charles Towne, SC! Team Blur is super bummed that we are not there. I noticed in one of Mer's pictures that somone had what looks like a 3DL jib. It even looked like it was stenciled with 3DL above the draft stripe. A report on sails would be an interesting followup. I always hear that the Euros use different kite shapes, although the US sailmakers deny!

I actually had a spirited discussion with Rachele about the party situation. Her boyfriend is the bowman on Mutua Madrilena, as well as sailing with Joe Fly and other hot Italian teams. She said she doesn't like parties during the regatta, because "I still think this is a sport," she said. For her, and the young guns who get paid to be here and who need good results to move their career forward, she's right. For the 80%+ of the rest of the fleet, her comments are clueless.

 

The guys who just won race 11 are some of the biggest partiers around. So are countless others. The day that the top 20 boats get cash for winning these events is the day it should get much more serious. Even the Farr 40 events, with a much higher concentration of pros, have nightly parties here in Cervo and most other places.

 

Of course they get defensive when I badmouth the job that the organizers have done with their planning for this regatta, but she's wrong - there is no question that they blew it, and that people will NOT be telling their friends what an incredible regatta this was. Great racing, sure. A beautiful venue, absolutely. But an unwelcoming, overpriced, hard to get to, isolated one as well.

I take it Vodka is too pricey out there and you didn't get enough duty free!

Funny. I've got plenty, and as sad as it may be for my reputation, I haven't had much time to party even if wanted to. I'm just telling it like I see it, and like many, many folks have told me here.

If you think about it, the class is supported mostly by the corinthian sailors. You have all the dues/fees etc... and most of the volunteering done by these dedicated sailors. This is what makes this class work. So if we want a freaking party to go out, get stupid, howl at the moon, or brag about some rockstar kicking our ass, then so be it. If you are getting paid, do your job. Sail hard, race fast, and go to beddy by early. As for the rest of us, lets stop Mr. Clean's humble abode and bust out the vodka.

Good example of the windshifts - Saetta was the only boat to round the right gate, and they are literally half a leg ahead of the next boat.

Damn, Uka Uka likes to go out in style. They're just sailing for the hell of it now (or nobody kept a score sheet).
