Race Week Begins

Recommended Posts

1419H: First J105 at their first leeward gate Savasana 55 at 14:15 ... Tenacious 54 ....Eclipse 50 ....Max Power 90 .... Rum at Six 56

 

1420H: First Melges 32 around the send weather rounding is Star 32 ... Banshee 76 ... Highlife 70 ....Bitipi 86 ....Nikasi 85

Better coverage from that site than this one. Clean is quiet. Maybe he drank too much and is passed out already?

 

 

They must be having people or tech issues...this is not their best outing so far. I will continue to complain from my couch with oreos and Miller High Life.

Clean,

 

If you want I could put in a call to the local Girl Scouts and find someone more assertive to take care of this for you.

It's a little of both, but we sort of expected it. Most photogs will tell you that the boat driver is like a bowman - a good one you hardly notice, and makes you look good. A bad one? Crap. Our boat is terrible, but was the best we could do for today due to the usual unforeseen crap, our tech is a bit glitchy, and our personnel include a few newbies with bewbies that don't understand the plan.

 

We know it's going to get a lot better, and quickly - so thanks for putting up with it, and for sticking with us.

not sure about the legs, althought for what it's worth, i think they're sailing the same course as the 24's, w/ the 32's sailing to the long mark.

BTW, the only time I have ever seen this many people in one forum was the final race of Canada's Cup OTW coverage. I imagine we'll set all kinds of SA records with the rest of the week - so THANKS!

 

Here's Rosebud, all by her lonesome, looking like practice day. These guys are just ridiculously good - but it sure seems boring.

Also, great day for Max Power!

 

Smaller fleet, but should still be some great racing this week for the J105's.

 

Does anyone know why Masquerade pulled out??

Clean, if it wasn't for OTW there wouldn't be other same day coverage, you guys drove the envelope. Good on ya! And the vid's are STILL crack, keep 'em coming, they're all good! And yes, you delivered on the promised elimination of "shaky camera" technic and herky jerky switch action shots. Nicely done. I'm praying for the promised snow storm here in NC so I can watch all day tomorrow too! Cheers, Winever.

Rosebud finished 3+ minutes behind the winning boat in race 1. Maybe they need some lessons???

Holy crap - I forgot that!

 

Thanks for the kind words. Mer just reminded me that I always feel like I've failed everyone on the first day - she suggested she wear a shirt the first day that says, "day 1 always blows."

 

Seriously though, I just have really high standards for what I want to show you guys. If we'd done this two years ago, we would have been incredibly psyched - but we keep raising the bar, and that means that I'm still disappointed in today. BUT - I do know that it will get a hell of a lot better in every way, and that this week will be the best, and the most watched OTW report by far.

 

One thing that is a bit tough is that a lot of the fleets are just not that interesting. A Farr 40 fleet with 12 boats and a Mumm 30 fleet with 5 just isn't worth watching. Handicap is good to take pictures of, but also kind of useless to spectate since we're just not equipped to do handicap scoring. But we don't just want to stay with the Melgi and 105s, because there is so much else going on. Ideas?

Alright, maybe in your world three minutes behind the leader is a good thing. Anyone with a big check book can buy a first to finish, they are going to need more than clean mark roundings to move up.

 

If you're miserable it sounds like a personal problem.

Alan- I believe that there are about 15 j80s that could use some coverage. Great job so far, almost like being there. Tell Mer that the quality of the photography is awesome.

 

 

Would be great to see a video of Kris and Brian.

I like Farr 40s (I like big boats) and with 12 of them, many with great talent, it is still very interesting (provided the racing is tight).

I agree the Mumm 30s just don't have enough boats on the line to justify the coverage. But a vid of whatever

action you can get is better than nothing.

Hey Clean, just don't forget that an awful lot of those here don't get to sail one design like the 32's and 24's so the handicap fleets offer something to a lot of people. I've got friends down there in both groups and I'm equally interested. Plus the sheer boat porn of Rosebud doing a sweet chute drop is priceless.

Admit it: you'd give a nut to be on that boat for the week.

Majority of people here could care less about the PHRF fleets down there. The only interesting handicap fleet is IRC 1 because the boats are big and fast. The big OD fleets are the crowd-pleasers.

Winever's right - EXACTLY THE POINT !!

 

Outside my window the SNOW is coming down and its freezing cold. Watching OTW with near RT sail racing is a treat !!

Majority of people here could care less about the PHRF fleets down there. The only interesting handicap fleet is IRC 1 because the boats are big and fast. The big OD fleets are the crowd-pleasers.

 

There are plenty of people who want to see what the 3rd circle is doing.

Is it just me, or are the F40s doing very conservative drops?

 

 

Not you!

I was thinking the same thing..... They need lessons from Rosebud!

Rosebud finished 3+ minutes behind the winning boat in race 1. Maybe they need some lessons???

 

You don't get out much do you

This is Anarchy....And they finished 3/8. Just above mid fleet.

not too good at math are ya

Apparently the way you do math I'm not. Mid fleet would be 4/8. Just above mid fllet would be 3/8.

 

You aren't very good at speaking or writing are you? What is "ya". Is that a word that stupid people who do retarded math use?

Viewing the M32's, M24's and j/105's can get a little tedious. I vote for more coverage of the handicap fleets, both circles. More eye candy! And Second the newbie bewbies!

Hey Clean, just don't forget that an awful lot of those here don't get to sail one design like the 32's and 24's so the handicap fleets offer something to a lot of people. I've got friends down there in both groups and I'm equally interested. Plus the sheer boat porn of Rosebud doing a sweet chute drop is priceless.

Admit it: you'd give a nut to be on that boat for the week.

 

Majority of people here could care less about the PHRF fleets down there. The only interesting handicap fleet is IRC 1 because the boats are big and fast. The big OD fleets are the crowd-pleasers.

I think the majority of the people could care less about your fucking opinion or mine for that matter. The flash big bucks programs get all the coverage from the regular outlets, how about the regular boats, i.e PHRF, J80s...

 

If you don't want PHRF coverage don't read it, I don't read about how completely and totaly awesome the Rosebut program is and how they are just the cat's ass.

You might as well be an equal opportunity offender and go cover the other circles. They might be a little more welcoming over there. Isn't that where some of the more compelling stories are? More opportunity to view clusterfucks up close.

Cover them all as much as you can without running around ragged and missing more than you see. It's a long week, just ration it out.

 

Sure we want to see the big boat/dollar programs and how slick they are, but like has been said, there are quite a few friends out there that a lot of us would like to see in the other classes/circles.

 

Your coverage is great, just don't get hung-up on wanting to show one circle or the other. Yeah, the numbers being down cut-out some of the overall excitement, but us home-bound ones will enjoy it all and appreciate yours, and the sponsors, efforts for the week.

Stu,

I saw the A-40 being towed back to the basin today after racing. Dunno the deal for sure...but did see them racing.

 

They were right next to us on Saturday when we were setting up the boat....they were cutting fabricating, & building all day. We watched them install the sprit, but today I saw a regular spin pole with a sym kite. Considering the amount of work they were doing on Sat. I think it is amazing they even made it to the race course.

Maybe some coverage of Division 3 with a nice big banner "Go Dump Trucks and Shitboxes "?

BTW, the only time I have ever seen this many people in one forum was the final race of Canada's Cup OTW coverage. I imagine we'll set all kinds of SA records with the rest of the week - so THANKS!

 

Here's Rosebud, all by her lonesome, looking like practice day. These guys are just ridiculously good - but it sure seems boring.

 

Clean asks a legitimate question about whether it is boring to sail around by ourselves but there is a logical answer. It takes a long time to put together a team as good a that which we have onboard Rosebud. If we do not sail and train, the team will dispurse and the program will loose all the knowledge we have gained over the past 2 years.

 

It is impossible to pull the boat out of storage and rock up to a major regatta and hope for a satisfactory result. We have just finished a complete refit of the boat since our return from the Med. We are now in the process of discovering how the changes we have made to the boat have changed the performance and handling of the boat.

 

We had a great race from Fort Lauderdale to KW and now we are learing about getting the boat around the cans. To be honest, KW is very limiting for us because of how short the legs are (2 Miles) and how shallow it is. Today in the first race, we could only sail for about 2 minutes off the start line on starboard before we would hit bottom. We had the same limitation at the top mark. However, maybe this distraction is good practice for Cowes???

 

Regardless, the KW Feeder and KWRW will help to prepare us better for the Jamaica race in 2 weeks and for the rest of 2009.

Div 1 - Race 1 is now up

 

 

Div 3 is also up:

http://www.premiere-racing.com/09_KW_Resul...w09_div3_R1.htm

 

No surprise.

Rumor won the J80's

 

WTF! DIV. 3 PHRF 1: Dougie and "XS" owes the fleet anywhere 42 to 72 seconds a mile!?? That's insane for a rating bracket.

Go Doug and funky looking boat!

 

No shit. Waiting, watch in hand, waiting, waiting, waiting...

 

At least we have plenty of time between starts.

For anyone that has done "high level" handicap sailing. it isnt boring, it is just different. In one design you are tactically dealing with relative gains, which allows you to burn away some of your lead in order to cross the line first. In hanidcap sailing it is all "absolute gains" no resting you need to drive, and extend for the entire race. I have done a lot of both types of racing and find them both really challenging. If you are in Key West during the 3rd month of January, you're probably not bored.
