OK, I have never witnessed anything like this. Last race of a season championship, two boats are virtually tied for first place going into today's race. The biggest and fastest boat in today's fleet is not in the running due to lack of participation in previous races. The big boat is winning handily when she suddenly does a 180 and heads towards the fleet behind her. She blankets one of the 1st place contenders allowing her friend, the other contender, to surge ahead. I don't believe there were any fouls and no protests were filed. Any comments?

that really sucks

Case 34 does not quite fit the situation. However, I would contend that a boat from fleet "A" that purposely hinders a boat in another fleet has broken Rule 2, Fair Sailing & 69.1, Gross Misconduct. Not sure, but the effected boat should be able to protest fleet A boat (which really doesn't matter, except to have that boat banned) AND then ask for redress when hindrance took place (to possibly toss the race).

You must be getting forgetful. The yellow boat and the burgundy boat (with the same hand on the helm) have both done it on several occasions in years past. I think you were even on one of boats they came back and blanketed.

That's not the point. I was asking for comments on the situation. I just wanted to find out if there was a rule for this besides "unsportsman like conduct".
B)

Since you were in the race maybe you could describe what you saw. I was on Race Committee.

Seems like it's a violation of rule 41.
"

41 OUTSIDE HELP

A boat shall not receive help from any outside source, except

(a) help for an ill or injured crew member;

(B) after a collision, help from the crew of the other boat to get

clear;

© help in the form of information freely available to all boats;

(d) unsolicited information from a disinterested source, which may

be another boat in the same race.

I rounded h right behind the red boat, we both set, and sailed low of the BB. As we were headed I went to whites and they looked like they were having problems with the kite. We rolled the H20 before the BB and I looked to see the red boat still having problems...not hurting any one. The last leg was a tight run to the out side pin. We finished and saw liberty and max both in clear air on the last leg with the red boat on whites still looking like they had problems. I did not see any interference, but I was racing and could not view everything. During the beat to H most boats went in with psyche song, the red boat and myself went out, no interference, not sure about the BB rounding, the red boat had a very poor race. B

I was checking out 'the rocket' in the yard last Sunday. I noticed the keel was set up for a not-yet-installed kelp cutter. The rudder was still covered for painting. I was wondering if there's any anti-kep provisioning for the rudder as well?

It's been raining most of the day. The local weatherman (not always to be believed) says the next storm hits tomorrow into Sat and then the BIG one hits on Sunday. No wind?, lots of :ph34r: rain and big swells does not sound good to me so I am hoping for wind. I'm just glad I'm crewing on Skian Dhu rather than driving a Harbor 20. It's the Holiday Regatta both days which will decide some of the yearly Championship winners. Go Skian Dhu! A crew bottle of Mt. Gay will be in order (along with a change of clothes). :)

Muddy, I give back to the sport as much as I can, race committee, regatta chair and race as much as I can. I have a distinct feeling that you do nothing in these venues. This sport would not survive without lots of volunteers. :rolleyes:

How long has it been since a racer came up to the race committee after the race and thanked them for giving up their time so the rest of us can play? On my boat we wave thanks to the race committee every time we cross the finish line. Even though they cannot hear it we always say it so the crew understands it takes work for races to happen.

I make a point to wave to the RC volunteers always regardless of race finish-ALWAYS. Doing RC is a job and without volunteers, racing would be rabbits starts galore.

I will assume the racing is right off the club tomorrow from 12 noon - about 4PM. Looking dismal from a wind strength standpoint. A solid West swell probably won't be surf-able by anyone other than jet skis and surf/paddle boards. Sorry folks. Not much better (At the moment) for Sunday...

After a long day of racing with little wind and rain I am very sad to hear that Barry Berkus passed away today. An icon in Santa Barbara as a sailor, advocate of the arts, and internationally known architect. A wonderful man. My heart goes out to his family. RIP Barry.

It was a slow, wet two days for the SBYC Holiday Regatta. Nonetheless, it was fun watching Mike Drammer and Eli Parker's new J-70, Roxie's Rocket. compete. They won their first regatta in the PHRF B fleet. Saturday's crew included Mike, Eric Stokke and Ken Kieding. Looking forward to seeing more in 2013 from a new and growing J-70 fleet locally.

Santa Cruz Island has been "shut down" by authorities following the death of a Coast Guard Officer over the weekend. The Coast Guard discovered a panga near Santa Cruz Island in the middle of the night and launched a 21 foot rigid hull inflatable which approached the panaga. Occupants did not respond to hail and sped toward the Coast Guard launch, hitting it and killing Terrell Horne, 34, who died of a head injury. Authorities evacuated the island of visitors and Park employees, Several bales of marajuana were found yesterday near Smugglers Cove (fitting name). There may possibly be suspects at large on the island.Occupants of the panga were pursued by Coast Guard helo and cutter and taken into custody. Pangas are being found lately at Refugio, San Miguel Island and Fernald Point.

Terrell Horne RIP

  • Late this afternoon, Rudy Jarabak passed away. As you all know, he was a member of many years. Rudy was deeply rooted in OMBAC from Rugby, to OMGarage, and he was the OTL set-up King! Rudy could be a real pain in the ass, but he was OUR pain in the ass. We will all miss him.

    May he ride that Hi-Lift in the sky to a place where there's no pain, no suffering, and every day is the 1st day of the 1st weekend of OTL.

    God bless him

OK, memory refreshed with the help of crew mates. I miss read your statement, I thought you were saying I was on the egregious boat, but you are right. I was on the boat that got blanketed by the 70 that Jimbo was driving. I don't think there was any protest action taken, just a lot of bad vibes..sorry my memory is seeped in rum, At any rate, it's a shitty move to pull in any race.

Totally agree. I started racing in Marina del Rey in 1970. It may be the fog of years but it seems to be that the corinthian spirit was more alive then. Lately it seems anything goes. I am sorry but to me that lacks class, regardless of the skill level of the perpetrator.

To set the record straight (on the original matter:), the blanketing at the BB was truly a coincidence as the red boat was flying with a little less talent than normal. We've all had those days. Also, it wasn't actually a 180. A crew member on our boat is still convinced she never rounded H, as the maneuver was more than curious. In retracing it, it still makes no sense how she ended up so far up wind, and so far past lay, on a downwind leg, but it happened, and the timing is crazy how we came together. I mean really, to plan that tack/jibe (which way was she going again?;) and end up blanketing at the mark perfectly would be more than impressive. As much as it hurt for a season decider, it was a lot of fun, which is what this fleet is all about.

I think the most appropriate response to this issue was:
"Shun forevermore at the bar is the best method of punishment."
Glad to hear the issue has come up in other races. I was curious as I couldn't think of an actual rule on that. It seems you would be hard pressed to prove intention there.

It's great that our little fleet is having such a competitive run right up to the end of the season, which will be settled . . .

Solve the problems made on the race course in the bar. Isn't this the first suggestion of most every repeat offender (no disrespect to Larry). In fact, if everyone raced as cleanly as Larry, Jane would not have even broached the subject.

But they don't all race cleanly in Santa Barbara do they. A small group has for years periodically done just the opposite. Whether it is calling for sea room and waiting a few extra boat lengths to tack, circling back to blanket or starboard tack a boat in another class or stripping PHRF boats before you race them, it is all the same BS and Santa Barbara has seen too much of it over the years.

The solution is simple. Don't take it to the bar, throw them out. If you do not, our children will be dealing with the same problem, because cheating breeds cheating.

I get it, no malice. Other skippers may not be pleased to learn that the largest and fastest boat in the fleet is careening around the course, out of control but having a ball. On our boat, before each race we evaluate our crew d'jour in terms of numbers and experience level. If I do not feel totally comfortable that we can race safely, we go for a day sail instead so I can do some teaching. This past year we have done a lot more day-sailing than racing but that is just the way it is.

mr. slob,you call that juciy gossip? What are you 13? I was more hoping for an update on the Xmas Parade. I saw that Rudolph got replaced by an Ullman code zero on the Farr 40, Crockett Rocket got a new racoon fur lined toilet seat AND dual fur wheels included. Not quite as awesome as your "news", but I am still trying to get pics of what ever was going on up in the rigging on Taxi, could be juicy.

Great Looking Ride - cannot wait to see the R/P on January 5 for the Malibu and return. We are coming up from Newport. We'll see how much on or off pace we are - still working on our light air performance.

Is the R/P staying with Evolution sails or going with North? Quantum? Is Transpac on the calendar?

Cheers,

That's about all you'll get, a "Little" wind. My report is showing light wind (5kt) all day. On the Plus Side, it's supposed to be mostly sunny, and relatively warm!

How was the Malibu race?


We had a great time - rounded the weather mark with the Farr 400, Margaritaville, Elixir and Crockets Rocket - all about within a minute of each other. Fun racing except for the wind dying about 500 yards from the finish.

We finished before the sun went down....

That is a pretty vague and negative comment coming from you. Not cool considering you are in the business and should know that making derogatory comments about another company that are so out of line gets you no where right?

That statement had no facts in it Keith. Just because you don't officially work for Quantum anymore doesn't mean your not affiliated.

We make great Code 0's and are 'real' sailmakers so no your 'facts' were not correct.

Good luck on your book and I wish you well as I have has fun times racing with you.

Geez, I don't know Max, I,ll ask. Dirk took first in A and first overall, I won the Harbor 20 Class and Larry took the J/105 Class. After that it was all rum.

Scott Deardorff won the Centennial Cup on the following day in rough conditions (for Harbor 20's). Pat Toole took 2nd.
