J22 North Americans

They should get the furthest traveled, especially if they are bringing their own boat.

 

Methinks the Australian team may be based in Houston?

Yo - Gnat...You don't know me (that I know of...) - BUT - My niece is coming trying put together a program out of Cleveland. Apparently they have a boat borrow/ charter arrangement and are bringing their own sails....

 

I am guessing she'll be reaching out to you guys tonight / tomorrow sometime to see if there is any housing available or if they ought to plan on camping...Pretty sure she has Maryanne as a contact for housing. Her name is Caitlin (her mom calls her cookie, so you can tease her about that) -

 

Take good care of them!

 

Thanks - Mikie (Over protective Uncle, although she'll have two strong men to protect her / get her around the race track!)

Will do Mikie. The YC is buzzing right now. Should not be a problem to place them somewhere.

 

Camping is not a bad option though, the weather is perfect.

Her tactician / main crew bailed on her today, so she has pulled the plug.

 

Too bad as I think she would have had a great time and learned a lot as well...

 

Thanks for the hospitality - I am sure you guys will have a great event!

The first # is finish position for this first race (will probably change to overall place depending on the scoring software), the bow number is second - the third is the sail number, followed by skipper/crew.

They are doing a nice job of getting the cores and mark roundings out on the web site. Not bad and no self promotion...

Well, how good can I be if I'm chatting with you on the interweb instead of racing in TX?

after day one team poop is showing us how it's done ... worst race a 5th. the flynnster in 2nd, sooter young in 3rd,

and ,as i'm typing with one eye blind, a few more of us bringing up yhe rear of A fleet... very close sailing ... stub your toe and you're laughed at as you loose 5 boats. relatively small turn out but very loaded top 10.

This regatta sure decimated our Wednesday Laser fleet's final night. I count about ten of our regulars who are riding around on J-22s in Dallas instead.

 

It's hard to decide which team to root for...

Wow, Flipper has won 4 of 7 races! Looks like he has a fight for the title with two races to go and only a couple point lead.

Make that a one point lead! Both boats "currently" have the same drop race count, but this too could change.

Here's the "early" forecast for tomorrow! Your mileage may vary - there are no warranties expressed or implied!

With Flynn and Elam lurking close by, there is little room for error!

 

The fleet is now at Primo's for dinner/"blow out" party!

Well done Flip, Max, and Greg.

 

Way to beat up on the Texas boys on their home turf!

I THINK they sailed the event on water.

 

But seriously... The beauty of RCYC is it is just a big dish of water in the middle of a flat bunch of field. There isn't really much local to know about sailing there.

 

translation: I have sailed about a hundred regattas there and I haven't figured out anything special except when the breeze is from the south and you smell the water treatment plant...a right shift is about to happen.

 

and that lesson only takes about one stinky shift to figure out.

 

The regatta demonstrated ( again) J-22 sailing is about equally competitive in the east, mid south and Minnesota... and there simply is not enough J-22 sailing everywhere else.

 

I wish I had one of them instead of my J-24. The competition is about the same; there is no 150% to buy, towing a J-22 is a whole lot easier on the vehicle, and 100 sailors easily put 30 J-22s on the course as opposed to only about 21 J-24s.

"turf" can mean anything:

 

Hey, I just turfed up your toilet

(I have pics)

-or-

 

That turf got me ripped

 

Gov, thanks for the usual commentary, but no matter how you cut it, the home team(s) didnt win.
