I know why I'm not there. KW passed a housing ordinance that you cannot rent a single occupancy home for less than 30 days. The house I've rented for the past 10 years went from $4k a week to $16k for the month... On top of the the KW Bight Marina decided that I had to pay in full last July if I wanted a slip. Last year the screwed me over when I decided to bring the rib instead of the M24. I was told I could not put the rib in the slip, lost my rent on the M24 slip, and had to pay a second time for the RIB slip...

 

So the bottom line is that that I'm staying home this year, which is only the 2nd KWRW I've missed since 1991.

As far as participation-- keep in mind that if you are the head of a company with a loyal employee base-- it is bad form to go "play" sailboats in these economic times in the face of your employees who are for the most part struggling with the real world. I am hearing that this is the case for many not coming down as well.

 

You are absolutely correct. That is the reason why we are not there after having done it for the past 11 years.

That is not true for all properties. There are still some single family homes available for weekly rentals; they have what is called a transient license. Agree there are a lot less available than before that ordinance was put in place.

With the breeze out of the NE, this Division is the only one that's out of the lee of KW. Little boats get big waves today...20 knots solid, 3-5 foot seas.

 

 

Seefest the J-29 should like that 20 knots and 3-5 ft waves is what he kicked my ass in at BBR last year.

Getting beat by an O'Day 40 twice yesterday makes me think they've got other problems.

 

 

People so underestimate that O'day 40. Dont knock it until you sailed it. Yes it is a pig but it has a great rating and it has wheels. It likes heavy air flat water or no air at all, in between not so good but can do well. I've been on that boat in Tampa Bay in a no air regatta racing in B class and passed all A class boats boat for boat who started 5 mins in front of us. MO has suprised many people.

Hey at least the owner finally found a way to beat a j/29...buy a different boat!

Hey All, I made a coupon code--10% off Pete Crawford DVDs for KW racers and fans. Code is kw, site is www.iniki.com. It's a great deal, especially on the full collection which was already a screamin' deal. Go Pete!

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble with Premiere Racing--my 2 cents is that there is a change coming to sailboat racing, and it's going to involve even more run-and-gun coverage, a sharp uptick in quality of/interest in racing as measurement tools like Kattack come online, and (sorry guys) less partying for participants as the population gets older and boats get more athletic. You guys are pushing on the technical/coverage end, and the rest of the infrastructure will need to adjust. All in all, the ability to provide tight SA style coverage is a win for the sport; it means more enthusiasts, more spectators and more ultimate viability, but it will be hard for the old school highbrow crowd to make the leap.....

 

Anyway, I hope the rumble with The Man turns out ok.

Looks like the boys on the S42 Cliterus partied last night. Congrats to Vitesse on a good day.

Just checked out your Lightning Blog. Very Cool.

My dad had Lightnings 980 & 5980. Good Luck.

 

For the record, I'm sure that there wasn't much partying on Malcom's crew... I'll try to get details.

 

Good Luck with ur restoration!

I get a cool list of everyone watching over the day - it is massive! I'd actually love to know more about the way people watch OTWA - obviously there are a bunch of you that just click "refresh" all day, and then we get a few thousand viewers who read the report from cover to cover at night, but what about the rest of you?

Nice job Clean and company. Today was probably the most interesting day for me since we normally would have been on this course. To add a little support to Clean's theory, the economy isn't the reason we skipped KWRW this year. As a little PHRF boat, we simply weren't getting what we paid for. I can understand that the PHRF fleets are only an afterthought at Premier, but you'd think they would do everything possible to bring in boats.

 

P.S. Best of luck to everyone on Jack a roe, Rhumb Punch, SeaFest, Good Girl, Nitemare, and all the other boats that helped us out or partied with us the last couple years. Hopefully we'll see you in Charleston.

 

Oh, and good luck to Lobo Rojo just because they're crazy enough to rock 6 people on a B-25.

Order done no receipt I called Point Loma Outfitting direct and got excellent service from THC the order will ship tomorrow and be here on Friday. I know every one of you watching OTWA need some piece of kit so now is the time to reach in your pockets and buy something from one of the sponsors!!

 

Thanks for the coverage I wish I could be there again this year but now is NOT a good time to take a week off to play in the sun( or not).

Dang WD, after reading that I have to vouch for your purchase.

 

Remeber to put OTWA9 in the Coupon Box at www. pointlomaoutfitting during the checkout process. It's good for a 20% discount on anything on our site.

 

Thanks everyone that has taken advantage of this so far.

 

Clean, you've done a good job so far, please do not go get yourself kicked out of KW tonight.

The coverage is better than ever, great entertainment for breaks from work during the day.

 

I have just one wish: is there a way to improve the quality of video playback? I enjoy the OTW reports and the pics, but the video is what I like the best.

 

Is there some way to provide higher resolution video playback? I know that YouTube is great for OTW for many reasons, but FFS you have HD quality from Petey's camera. Can't you post it on the SA server or something else?

 

Keep up the great work.

Thanks Monkey - That's what I've heard from so many owners of small OD boats and PHRF racers. Premiere has alienated many of these sailors by not delivering enough to them, just as the sport moved toward smaller boats. Go and look at the entry numbers for KW and Miami for the last five years - it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what's happened.

For the record keeping... I saw 216-228 users on line for most of the day today.

Still the best coverage that there is.

 

Thanks to all.

I get a cool list of everyone watching over the day - it is massive! I'd actually love to know more about the way people watch OTWA - obviously there are a bunch of you that just click "refresh" all day, and then we get a few thousand viewers who read the report from cover to cover at night, but what about the rest of you?

 

 

 

work at home, not getting much work done at all. was there in 06, m24, cold as fuck. and 2000-03 hendo 30.

missed last yr because of ailing parrent, missing this year because of last minute pullout.

but am living vicarius(sp) through otw!!!!!!!!!!!!! well done and keep up the good job.

would love to see some coverage of the swan 42's if possible have buds on vitasse.

 

I KNOW! FUCK OFF NEWBIE!

The coverage is better than ever, great entertainment for breaks from work during the day.

 

I have just one wish: is there a way to improve the quality of video playback? I enjoy the OTW reports and the pics, but the video is what I like the best.

 

Is there some way to provide higher resolution video playback? I know that YouTube is great for OTW for many reasons, but FFS you have HD quality from Petey's camera. Can't you post it on the SA server or something else?

 

Keep up the great work.

That's why we brought Petey, and he'll be getting some really good looking video together this week.

Nice job Clean and company. Today was probably the most interesting day for me since we normally would have been on this course. To add a little support to Clean's theory, the economy isn't the reason we skipped KWRW this year. As a little PHRF boat, we simply weren't getting what we paid for. I can understand that the PHRF fleets are only an afterthought at Premier, but you'd think they would do everything possible to bring in boats.

 

P.S. Best of luck to everyone on Jack a roe, Rhumb Punch, SeaFest, Good Girl, Nitemare, and all the other boats that helped us out or partied with us the last couple years. Hopefully we'll see you in Charleston.

 

Oh, and good luck to Lobo Rojo just because they're crazy enough to rock 6 people on a B-25.

Thanks Monkey - That's what I've heard from so many owners of small OD boats and PHRF racers. Premiere has alienated many of these sailors by not delivering enough to them, just as the sport moved toward smaller boats. Go and look at the entry numbers for KW and Miami for the last five years - it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what's happened.

On that note, I'll rant a little more. We were one of the few sponsored PHRF boats. Premier was nice enough to charge us an extra $750 for that privelidge. Not even once did we see the sponsor's logo or even a shot of the boat show up on the screens in the rum tent. I'd love it if you asked them how they justified the cost while providing nothing!

This is a really cool video - our local fisherman/boat captain took the HBI Boats RIB through the Boca Chica channel on our way home. Then I interviewed him to see what a lifelong fishing boat captain thinks about sailboat racing. And there's an iguana swimming...

I click 'refresh' while sitting at home searching for a job. Following this sure beats the lame job pickings..... Keep up the good work!!!

Great job on the day Bitches, congrats! Today was apparently the coldest day since 2006. Fuck me I hate the cold - and it explains my shitty mood all day.

Once again, our report is evolving - and once again, I had little to do with it. Vegas, JI (who should be here driving his new M24 right now), and the rest of you who are posting outside info - you are turning this report into not only the best OTW action, but into a repository for all things KW. That's the beauty of this place.

 

 

Allowing you to be late and yet more unprofessional....

Our sponsors have also stepped up – and Point Loma Outfiting, Dax OneTouch winch handles, and Latis Yachting Solutions are offering 20% off of their inventory just for you – just enter 'KW09' in the promotion code part of the checkout process, and get your sweet gear today. When requesting an estimate for moving your race boat with Latis, just mention OTW Anarchy and you'll get 10-20% off the quote.

 

And thanks for watching our 2009 OTW Anarchy Key West presented by Quantum Sails. You guys have been doing a great job of showing our sponsors that you support them like they do us – so please keep it up. These discounts are only good for the month, so make it happen now.

 

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Just a quick comment - the Dax 20% KW09 discount will be good through end of Feb.

 

Thanks,

Sadly, it turns out that getting quality video out of Key West is even slower than getting to Key West towing your Farr 40 behind a VW Beetle.

 

You guys are doing something cool though: with the help of people who care about sailing and care about you, you are creating a new way to watch and talk about the sport and it's working. (Jeezus, I teared up a little there.) But seriously, a year from now all this will look different and it will be due in large part to what the SA crowd is doing.
