Back In The Saddle - In 30 Knots!

Recommended Posts

Swan 42 at the top mark of Race 3

 

 

Argo wins the pin, New Wave and Star win the boat, Calvi in the middle. Nitemare called back, dips line, headsupwind, RC hollers at them, not clear, round again. Bummer for Amy!

1.7 NM race, 5 legs. For you dumptruck and shitbox fans, we are thinking of spending all day on the Div 3 course tomorrow.

Just following friends on all 3 circles....

Keep up the great coverage. B)

Yep that sucks good group of guys! I hope they will be back tomorow and assume they will.

I'm sure they'll find a way to get back out there. Major bummer though, they've been looking forward to this week for a while.

Zetiana, Babs and Riot Act over early, WTF wins the left, though Jen Wilson won the pin, just slowly. Full Throttle and JF in the middle, Uka Uka owns the right.

Since I know Premiere is reading this, GET THE FUCKING RESULTS UP YOU ASSHATS! And I mean that in the nicest possible way. Now that there are all these viewers around the world, you owe it to them to stop being cheap, hire Luiz to come down and make it happen. Your excuses about "processing" or "making it perfect" are not acceptable. There is no reason that Big Boat and Charleston can have instant results, making you look like amateurs.

Might not be a foul. Tacking might have been the only option, too far forward for a duck possibly.

The story on the Archambault 40 is a good one - I guess when they packed it up out of customs, the height of the whole tow was a fraction of an inch too tall. And you just don't feel something like that if you're driving a big truck...so the boat arrived with a quarter inch missing from everything, scraped off on overpasses. You can imagine the mess. The fact that the boat is here at all is pretty amazing.

Here's a good Question for OTW brought to us by Q:

 

I thought in a recent Q and A, T Hutch said that even Barking Mad was Quitting the "evil empire" (I Quote because go Team Blue), and would be Questing victory with Quantums. Every pic and video so far has Barking Mad with a full North inventory. Terry, have the Steinbrenner's purchased North and are you the next Johnny Damon, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, etc.?

Smoke break while vids load. There seems to be some kind of dead zone here that cuts our upload speed down quite a bit, I ahve a lot in the pipe, but waiting on it blows.

 

See ya shortly, and thanks for hanging around.

I don't know the class rules, but many one designs have sail acquisition limits. Maybe the F40 does too?

I would guess it's an issue with 'buttons' and would imagine you will see the inventory replaced with Q's as the buttons allow.

Great job, Clean, Mer & team!

 

Next time you're near IRC 2, show some love to "Hot Ticket" if you can (King 40, #52956):

 

All amateur Texas boat (only king 40 without a pro tactician, I believe... the tactician sells mulch for a living!) with anarchists onboard (but then, what boat doesn't these days), including fellow Texas viper sailor & anarchist UltraRacer613um.

 

I saw a very brief shot of them in one of the mark rounding videos, but would love to see more.

 

Go Team Mulch!

Farr 40 one design rules run some 48 pages in length with quite a few devoted to sails. Here is what the class allows in terms of sai replacement:

Clean,

 

Interview suggestions: Kolius - I'm sure you know he's done everything from Olympics, AC, Transpac, several world championships, etc., but is relatively new to the M24, and is getting up to speed fast, so it would be interesting to get his perspective on why he's doing it now, and what he thinks of the talent in the fleet, etc...

Awesome Tom - get your patagonia/slam/atlantis shit now!

 

Listen - we are jumping off right now, but oi'm leaving the laptop to keep loading the videos, including the fucking hilarious shouting matches between the RC and us. If any of you (ahem...vegas) wants to help by posting the link to the videos we haven't gotten up yet, that would be awsome. They're popping in to youtube one by one as we speak. Account is blocksail

 

See ya later, and seriously - a HUGE thanks to all of you!
