Is there any online race tracking for this one? I can't seem to find one. Kattack, VOR, iBoattrack, Virtual Spectator all have me spoiled.

I don't think there is, though i would love to be proven wrong.

Key West Race Week is all about buoy racing, but the real offshore studs bring their boat to town on her own bottom, preferably straight from Fort Lauderdale with the afterburners lit. Wednesday afternoon was the start of the Lauderdale to Key West feeder race, a tough event that can include anything from a N'ly blast to a cracked off reach in 12 foot seas and 30 knots of wind. This year's race includes a few TP52s as well as some IRC beasts, and a pile of random boats like the Swan 53 Dragon Fly Plus. From Anarchist Sol Rosenberg on board the Swan:

 

Uneventful start, with 10 knots from the North – starboard gybe on the start. After that there were many, many gybes to get to Miami, with fewer since. I got a break from a long kite trim session between Miami and Fowey, and there's already a big protest brewing over whether the “string rule” spplies between Miami and Fowey or just from Fowey on. Friggin' Northerners can't read sailing instructions. Lots of boats protested. A big Northbound current at the sea buoy sent many inshore. Gotta run – a championship dump is brewing.

And Later:

 

I just finished a 2 hour helm shift, playing with the Open 40 and the King 40 in the light – down to 4.8 knots windspeed. Yeoman missed the Miami Sea Buoy and went back to round it properly. They passed us at the end of my shift. “Rosenberg, Yeoman is driving that thing right up your ass,” said someone.

“Sounds like bad luck for him,” I answered.

Sol can be a baby when he can't find his long underwear (which are flannel and red, JBTW) the morning before an offshore Race that has a forecast of being cold. I don't blame him in the least.

Hard to tell. There is a sled in our class that owes us an ungodly amount of time. I should know by the time we finish whether we beat them, thanks to LZ's scoring program posting finish times. We should be doing pretty well with everybody else in our class.

If its for things like reminding the kids to feed the goldfish, or checking how much money you lost

in the stock market, no problem.

 

If it gains a competitive advantage wether its intentional or not, yes.

Which could be argued includes competitors positions and of course weather, etc.

taht the whole flete isnt privy to. Depends how detailed the info is and how strict

the rules are enforced i guess.

Way to go Sol!

 

I'm having trouble feeling sorry for the "cold" 50 degrees. I'm freezing my ass off in Michigan with a high today of 3 degreees (F).

 

Have fun in KW and I can't wait to piss away an entire week of work with OTW reports!

This just in from Sol. CRYC based Spiderglide (Sydney 36) beat out Stu Hebb's CRYC based Thin Ice (Aerodyne 38), with a 1,2. I assume that's for their class . They are both also racing in the Pineapple Cup. Makes for a good blue boat rivalry.

 

Just talked to Stu - Rosebud won overall.

 

EDIT: The above is IRC.

Hey LZ!

 

So is Ace not gonna finish? Did something happen to them? Not that I know them, but it is a MacGregor, so I'm curious.

Don't know but from the results sheet looks like they may have called in and dropped out (DNF). Got me curious too as to what happened.

 

Unfortunately I didn't make it down there this year so sitting here in cold Michigan just following it.

Anyone know why Denali raced in PHRF A VS. Racing in the IRC A class?

 

Probably because they do not have a valid IRC Cert. At least RORC doesn't show that they do.

I figured as much. However, you can prolly answer this for me: doesn't an IRC cert get voided upon transfer of ownership?

Yeap, needs to be re-upped. Theirs was almost completed before the race. They probably did not want to push to get it (speculating).

LZ - Is there anyway you can get the owners to fill out " the crew list" section of their registration, so we can see which of our Lucky friends are sailing in these regatta's.

 

My car heater didn't even warm up on the half hour commute home, (f@cking -7 and getting colder here in Chicago)

 

I want to take each and everyone of their names in vain for complaining about the cold race down to Key West!

LOL... Thinks it is any warmer around here? Whatchu get today, we'll get tomorrow!

 

I'd love to see more owners fill in their crew list. Not only for us to see but the give the crews credit for their sailing.

 

Unfortunately only the OAs can do that by requiring that crew lists be submitted as part of their entry requirements.

crikey..what did they do to get that number? Old M/H's thru the 36S are 1.079 - 1.067. I thought 1.049 was low for the C/R at Geelong...1.041 wow.

 

Someone has perhaps figured out they only go so fast downwind?? Short mast...small sym kites. narrow jibs and roach. lighter???

 

Would be a giant killer in a two sail reaching race at 1.041.

 

Be very interested to see how she stacks up during KWRW. am guessing light sloppy will be her nemesis

 

The Sydney 36 has found yet another life. Amazing that and you still can't go faster than 17 knots or the dylithium crystals melt

I was looking at that yesterday, see the pic in post #9 Fixed prod. from what I can see no mast track for a spin pole, would love to see a better pic of the entire rig to get an idea on the size in perspective to the boat and make some guesses as to what has been modifyed.

They also did well in the Worth (sp) race in Ft L. 6 or 8 weeks ago.

Congrats!

The second half was pretty quick, but the first half was light and at times tedious. Big lefty in the wee hours put an end to the light stuff and the rapid jibes to get out of the stream, which was VERY close. Those who were in close at the shift made nice gains. Fast times the rest of the way, and a beat from the KW sea buoy to the finish in 20+ that can only be described as brutish. It was nice to do that on a Swan 53, which doesn't just go through the water, it punishes it in the process.
