Bruno left to start his own business a while ago.

Looks like Bruno is down in Chucktown kicking some ass in a J/80.

4/16 it is.

Attention all, the unoffical SA Area III 'Fill The Lake Party' will be on the south end of Belmont Harbor starting sometime shortly after sundown. BYOB, envite anyone you'd like, Fat dudes, asshole chicks, beer snobs, and pretzel sticks. Check your additude in the harbor, bullshit talks and money walks. Someone will be crowned 'Sir Douche-a-Lot' by evening's end. Oh, there is a FB invite, but I didn't make it fully public, no snobbery intended. I'm not wanting to broadcast this to the masses outside of the sailing community to keep the head count under a 1000. We don't want to attract too much attention, now do we...

Remember, don't bring something to this event you're not willing to walk away from... This includes, but is not limited to; chimps dressed as babies, coolers, chairs, bongos, assorted fine belguim chocolates, printed P&L quarterly reports, muffin pans, table tennis paddles, serving dishes, card tables, 8 track players, slavic mythology board games, cheese graders, porcupine bait traps, copper bed pans, chinese grandfather clocks, hobbit wear, donkey punching gloves, and right hanging feathered hampster pants.

Retardedly der,

Blubbsbee B. Blubbersworth III Triple B

P.S. If the cops show, I don't know any of you fucks....


Any chance this will be postponed till the temperature is above 40 degrees and not raining?


man you are one whiney bitch


Yes. I. Am. <-- Clicky

Whoa whoa whoa...don't forget the best part of the Bachelorette party showing up. And it wasn't the bride running back to the bus in tears, but us meeting Kate, the 24 year old sex-ed teacher from Central Illinois who taught us all about "footing" and the spread of herpes.

It is amazing how the quest for an onion can influence the direction of an otherwise perfect evening.

Thanks to BB for putting together the night.. The stories, the sex ed class and the hairy ass all made for a great night...... I just hope the local soul that got those digits can track down the picture of the bridal party and the SA'ers

For being FNG the hazing was pretty light... was a lotta laughs Sat. night down by the lake, with a few unforgettable moments: Trousers down, ass out. Bachelorette Party, the sex ed teacher & the tears rolling down the bride-to-be's face. Flashing lights from the cop car, beers down, stand next to said beers nonchalantly.
Catch you all out there on the water.

Hi guys,

I apologize if this message ends up in the wrong spot on here - I'm new to Sailing Anarchy and the "Chicago" topic seemed logical.

My name is Grant, I'm 23, and I moved to Chicago from Southern California for a consulting job in January. I'm looking to get on a boat for this coming racing season and beyond. I have been sailing big boats and dinghies regularly since 2006 when I joined my college sailing team. I sailed on the Chapman University dinghy and offshore teams for four years and became a regular on an Andrews 50 for beercans, coastal, and a bit of distance racing. My jib/main trimming is pretty solid, and I am comfortable with most boat positions (including sym/aso kite trim in light-medium breeze) except foredeck and driving, where I have limited experience. I am DEFINITELY looking to learn and build my sailing skills, despite the absence of salt in the water here (WTF?!)Posted Image

If you've got a potential spot or know of one, please PM, call, or email me and I'll send over my sailing resume.

Thanks in advance, and I hope to see you all on the water soon!

Cheers,

Grant

Equation - STP 65 entered for the Mac. Heard about it, but it's nice to actually see her on the entry list.

Any word on when she'll hit the GLs? I heard she might do some races on the east coast for the beginning of 2010, then head this way for the Mac(s). I would assume we'll see her up in Harbor Springs too?

So the NOR for the 2011 Verve Cup Offshore Regatta is now published.

Two things of interest :

1.) No PHRF sections - OD and ORR only.
2.) If a OD section wants to, they can compete in the LD race on Saturday, instead of the buoy races, and make that part of their class' overall regatta scoring (but can't be eligible for the Overall Verve Cup trophy). I'm pretty sure the F40 class is gonna be all over that one! <_<

VERY Interesting.
So anybody without an ORR certificate (Wed night beer can racers thinking of stepping up to the next level, or someone who races the Hook instead of the Mac) isn't welcome unless their boat fits in an OD class?

No - it states if you would like to race in this regatta you need to be in one design class or have an ORR Cert - it doesn't say your not welcome to race!

It also states a lot of other Notices - NOR 3.


2011 Verve Cup NOR's


Every Regatta does not have to include every boat that races or sails in that area.

2.) If a OD section wants to, they can compete in the LD race on Saturday, instead of the buoy races, and make that part of their class' overall regatta scoring (but can't be eligible for the Overall Verve Cup trophy). I'm pretty sure the F40 class is gonna be all over that one! Posted Image



Interesting - CYC stepping up their ORR crusade - saving sailing - not so much



Gotta' stroke the ego's


How's the racing in your neck of the woods? Any going yet?

So the NOR for the 2011 Verve Cup Offshore Regatta is now published.

VERY Interesting.
So anybody without an ORR certificate (Wed night beer can racers thinking of stepping up to the next level, or someone who races the Hook instead of the Mac) isn't welcome unless their boat fits in an OD class?

I wouldn't make a tempest in a teapot out of this.

I think practically speaking this isn't that big an issue. The typical beer-can boat that wants to try the Verve LD race, is very likely a 30-35 foot production racer/cruiser - cruiser/racer, for which there already exists an ORR certificate (from a sistership). Since the NOR does not state that "measured" certificates are required, one can get a Partial Measurement certificate that costs 150-200 bucks for a 30-35 foot boat. While that's a bit more than a PHRF certificate, it's less than the cost for food/beer/soda for a weekend of A3 racing.

Back in the glory days of IOR racing, where we had scores more boats competing, an owner had to pay hundreds of dollars for an IOR certificate which required both out of the water and in the water measurements. That didn't seem to hurt participation any - even among the low-key stock boat camp. So I don't buy the argument that requiring a $200 ORR certificate will really dissuade many. BTW - there is also an optional/separate long distance race (Saturday) as part of the NOOD, so the cost of an ORR certificate can be amortized over additional events (Sheldon Clark, too), if it makes the economics more reasonable for a first-timer.

Personally, I am glad to finally see CYC being proactive in establishing a measurement-based handicapping system and eliminating LM-PHRF (and the associated problems therein, of which I am ore than averagely aware) for racing in Chicago. Hopefully this is the beginning of a gradual elimination of PHRF from non-beercan racing. While I would have preferred another system (IRC), I'll take ORR over LM-PHRF any day.


Oh and Cristian - while you're boat doesn't qualify for this weekend's Nap NOOD, I'm sure someone as intensely committed to participation as you are already has a ride for one of the biggest events of the year in your bailiwick... or are you content to to be sitting on the sidelines casting stones into someone else's pond?

Hi guys,

I apologize if this message ends up in the wrong spot on here - I'm new to Sailing Anarchy and the "Chicago" topic seemed logical.

My name is Grant, I'm 23, and I moved to Chicago from Southern California for a consulting job in January. I'm looking to get on a boat for this coming racing season and beyond. I have been sailing big boats and dinghies regularly since 2006 when I joined my college sailing team. I sailed on the Chapman University dinghy and offshore teams for four years and became a regular on an Andrews 50 for beercans, coastal, and a bit of distance racing. My jib/main trimming is pretty solid, and I am comfortable with most boat positions (including sym/aso kite trim in light-medium breeze) except foredeck and driving, where I have limited experience. I am DEFINITELY looking to learn and build my sailing skills, despite the absence of salt in the water here (WTF?!)Posted Image

If you've got a potential spot or know of one, please PM, call, or email me and I'll send over my sailing resume.

Thanks in advance, and I hope to see you all on the water soon!

Cheers,

Grant

I agree with both statements. I too would have preferred IRC but ORR will be an improvement especially if the full power of ORR is used and not just a single number.

Ah, I'm home.... Check'n in. Sorry, I didn't actually put hands to a keyboard until Sunday evening and that was just to check porn.

the Condor is a blast. Lots of work on those biggums. Great crew, they welcomed me with open arms. And they all volunteered to drive me to the airport for my flight home. I had to remind them on several occasions that I was flying out on Monday, not Saturday evening, or Sunday morning. Weird... But all and all, it was a lot of fun to sail for 'Unc' again. The place really agrees with him.

For the record and (I was forced to say this) San Diego is a horrible place. No breeze, ugly women, Mexican banditos out on the water hijacking yachts at random. The drinks are over priced, watered down, and have little gay umbrellas in them. Did I mention the beatings? That's right, everyone get their ass kicked as the enter the city limits. Fog, radiated sea containers floating ashore. Nasty sea lions breaching up to nip at you when you're hiking out on the rail. Kind of ghetto really.... ( fair enough Da-Woody?)

Goes out at night, searches for an overdue sailor, then haul my sorry ass out of the lake!

Woman rescues husband, boating pals in lake


By William Lee, Tribune reporter
10:30 PM CDT, May 11, 2011

Three men tossed into Lake Michigan Wednesday night by thunderstorm-driven waves were rescued by a team led by the wife of one of them who got worried and went searching for them, officials said.

Authorities said the 48-year-old woman called her husband aboard the sailboat earlier in the day to tell the men that severe weather was moving into the area.

Sensing something was wrong when her subsequent calls went unanswered, the woman went to Montrose Harbor and used a power craft to mount her own search for the men, according to fire department spokesman Larry Langford.

The woman eventually found the capsized boat and the three men bobbing in the cold, murky lake water about a half-mile out, said Police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak. The woman, with the aid of two other harbor boaters whose aid she enlisted--managed to get all three men aboard her power craft. The woman finally called 911 just after 9 p.m. after the rescue.

When fire officials responded, all three men were resting on the harbor, Langford said.

The Sun Times says it was a Rhodes 19. But they gave no names.

It had to be something newsworthy if Mary Dixon was talking about it on 'XRT. That's why I looked. I was hoping y'all would have details.

I am glad no one was hurt. Most of the Rhodes guys are really nice. But, when you are going that slow, you have time to be nice. I guess.

Never mind. Just got an e-mail with details.

In the water about 45 minutes after a squall line in front of the storm swamped their boat. Coordinated effort at the club with other sailors to go look for and retreive them. Once back to shore, they were obviously hypothermic but luckily, one of the members was a doc and took care of them until the ambulance arrived.

All OK.

I did, treated one of the survivors while the other first responder took care of the other victim. Becoming a member of ski patrol over the winter really paid off, I had all of the EMT training as well as lots of experience and knew immediately what to do, we see lots of hypothermia in skiing.

Some lessons to be learned here, namely:
- No PFD means you're not going to survive long, especially now when it's cold out.
- A simple "float plan" with a friend saved their lives, someone knew to come look for them.
- Does your club have a first aid kit? A functional AED unit? Hypothermia vicitims often die from heart attack, an AED could save a life if one is available and people know how to use it.
- Do you know first aid? Basic CPR? Knowing how to use all of the gear and having practiced with it a little is just as critical as having the gear on hand.
- Many others about VHF, checking weather, etc, the obvious ones.

One of the conversations I've had since, is thinking about how we can get appropriate first aid kits, as well as AEDs out on the A3 Race Committee boats. Sometimes we are quite a ways out there, and quick access to an AED could save a life. I would probably have one on the 36.7 actually if they weren't big and bulky and cost like $1500, next best thing would be to have one on the RC boat at the least. Just as important though is having trained people out there, learn CPR, save a life!

And if you have ever taking Safety at Sea, the 50/50/50 rule is 50 minutes in 50 degree water = a 50% chance of survival. These guys were in the water that long last night, and it was closer to 40 degrees, they are very very lucky.

Keep in mind, these guys were all 3 pretty experienced sailors, they got caught when they were almost back into the harbor, the storm beat them in, and a Rhodes doesn't have an engine.

And if you have ever taking Safety at Sea, the 50/50/50 rule is 50 minutes in 50 degree water = a 50% chance of survival. These guys were in the water that long last night, and it was closer to 40 degrees, they are very very lucky.

Keep in mind, these guys were all 3 pretty experienced sailors, they got caught when they were almost back into the harbor, the storm beat them in, and a Rhodes doesn't have an engine.

CYC RC does provide a CPR class, however, I'm pretty sure this doesn't include the use of the AED.

Good job George, you have once again confirmed my faith in that you are of sound mind, and are one level headed guy. And I'm still honored to share the race course with you.

Feel free to just use some old rusty jumper cables and a couple of wet spunges on me if you actually feel then need to resuscitate my lifeless corpse out on the lake, in the parking lot, under a 400 lb hooker named Montserrat Caballé-May

SATURDAY
NORTH WINDS TO 30 KT. CHANCE OF SHOWERS. WAVES
BUILDING TO 5 TO 9 FT.

SATURDAY NIGHT
NORTH GALES TO 35 KT BECOMING NORTHEAST. CHANCE
OF SHOWERS. WAVES BUILDING TO 6 TO 10 FT.

SUNDAY
NORTHEAST GALES TO 35 KT BECOMING NORTH. SHOWERS
LIKELY. WAVES BUILDING TO 6 TO 10 FT.

A. Maybe Peter and the boys should take the Rhodes out this weekend to try and complete their little outing
B. Anyone with deliveries this weekend, rethink them, please.

Just kidding about Peter, I hope he's recovering well and I can't help but think that he is the luckiest SOB in Chicago for having such a mindful caring wife and that they were all found in time. We all know that there was a very high probability that could have all ended very badly. He should go buy a bunch of lottery tickets.

I did, treated one of the survivors while the other first responder took care of the other victim. Becoming a member of ski patrol over the winter really paid off, I had all of the EMT training as well as lots of experience and knew immediately what to do, we see lots of hypothermia in skiing.

Some lessons to be learned here, namely:
- No PFD means you're not going to survive long, especially now when it's cold out.
- A simple "float plan" with a friend saved their lives, someone knew to come look for them.
- Does your club have a first aid kit? A functional AED unit? Hypothermia vicitims often die from heart attack, an AED could save a life if one is available and people know how to use it.
- Do you know first aid? Basic CPR? Knowing how to use all of the gear and having practiced with it a little is just as critical as having the gear on hand.
- Many others about VHF, checking weather, etc, the obvious ones.

One of the conversations I've had since, is thinking about how we can get appropriate first aid kits, as well as AEDs out on the A3 Race Committee boats. Sometimes we are quite a ways out there, and quick access to an AED could save a life. I would probably have one on the 36.7 actually if they weren't big and bulky and cost like $1500, next best thing would be to have one on the RC boat at the least.

Well at CCYC we get cute sailor girls to warm up our hypothermia victims...but for you I will certainly scour lower Wacker drive for willing denizens to lend you their warmth, and call Chicago city towing for a set of rusty jumper cables.

Blub - We just finished the CYC RC CPR/AED certification and 1st aid classes.

There are a lot of CYC RC that are certified as well as Lynn the CYC "on the water director" is an instructor.

We do carry an EAD's on the SV "Carrier" for all CYC races.

George - there are a few portable EAD's that are small and light weight - but your right on the cost.

Please call 911 first for a professional response and then do what ever you can safely.

One of the things we've been talking about, is that during larger races, like the NOODs and the Verve, there are multiple circles, and the only RC boat with one is Carrier. Since I'm often stuck way down on B-circle by Indiana, and most often the RC boat is a "loaner" there typically wouldn't be one available. And as we saw in the Verve 2 seasons ago on B-Circle, bad things can and do happen out on the race course, and it can take time for the USCG to arrive, even by helicopter.


I'm well aware that there are smaller portable lightweight units, too much weight for a race boat though! (just kidding about this part, it's really the cost of them) I carry a full type emergency kit on my boat, I am a ski patroller in the winter time and treat lots of accidents at a place in Wisconsin called Wilmot, it's a small hill, but very busy, and a lot happens there, so I carry all of my patrol gear with us on the boat in the summer time, probably more than most people have with them, but I took an old "free" NOOD backpack and filled it with all of the stuff I carry in my patrol vest in the winter time into one backpack, it all fits nicely and works very well for this purpose.

My point though, was that gear is all well and good, but without some basic training on how to use it, which includes actual PRACTICE with this stuff, it's not going to help a lot. In the offshore regs they state we're supposed to carry a first aid manual with instructions, we all have these (I do too), but in all reality, when someone is seriously hurt, it's not the time to be thumbing through some book... practice is key.

"oh Blubs, it says here on page 72 to make sure the person isn't breathing before you do mouth to mouth...woops...".. if you catch my drift. Even CPR if you've never done it is a lot different than what they show on TV, you really have to whale on someone pretty hard to do it properly, and to get the required # of compressions is a LOT of effort, and you're almost 100% going to break their ribs while you're doing it.

It would be good if we figure out as a community how we get more people trained and certified. It is GREAT that CYC is training the RC folks, kudos! I'm thinking more along the lines of how do we offer up some classes or training to the rest of the sailing community, so that more people have the skills needed? I know a ton of EMT, CPR, and OEC certified instructor trainers, who can be called upon to do some classes, the ones who teach the ski patrollers their skills, and in ski patrol we do a TON of training annually, and lots and lots of practice. NSP offers a much shorter Outdoor Emergency First Responder type of first aid course as well that might be a good one to take if it were offered locally.

Oh and for those commenting and quarterbacking the incident, the CG was called immediately, by the time they responded the victims were already out of the water and being treated, and had they waited, it could have been a tragedy or a recovery instead of a rescue story, but they were called and did respond.

Maybe you could put on two pairs of glove and use the recently discarded 'spunges' from the excessive couplings of blubs and his favourite 400lb slapper..
or not!

This is a great story, and I am happy all are well.

However, am I the only one wondering why, with 3 experienced sailors onboard, and they knew nasty weather was coming, they didn't drop the main and jib when the winds picked up?

Maybe they were so close to shore and they thought they could get back in, but still, as a seasoned sailor, this point bothers me.

And a 70 knot burst of wind. Which would likely indicate a fast microburst, going from sustained 20-30s to 70 in an instant. They were almost back in to the harbor, maybe 3/4 miles from the harbor entrance.

We were sitting inside my cabin in the slip watching the wind instruments during the storm, it was ugly out, hailing all over the cabin top.

I saw a photo of Peter Pan being towed in by the 'salvage' crew. Spinnaker was still hoisted. Knowing Peter, they were enjoying a raucous fast attempt to get back to the harbor when they got knocked down.

Yeah it sounds like Peter but, the spinnaker was down and tucked under the cuddy. It floated out in one of the roll overs and got caught around the spreaders when they righted the boat. It was down long before the knockdown. They were reaching with jib and main when the puff hit.

I'm well aware of that, and have once or twice sailed in the bathtubs. It is still better and safer to drop the sails and ride out the blast, and then re-hoist later.

I personally would have triple reefed the main, put up my storm jib, and deployed a sea anchor. I'm suprised they did not launch their liferaft and set off their EPIRB.. ID you're a lucky man, your dog would have come out to save you! Only problem is, he'd bring a ball with him and want to play catch for about 3 hrs before he brought you back to shore.
