and how many proteins on the menu?


Plently!

After race buffet is being moved to an Italian restaurant on C.I.
No way the goombahs are going to lose out on that action
And may even wet their beaks in entry fees !

I will almost never do this, and probably will never do it again.
But I need to publicly apoligize to Edd for getting on him and abusing him over the years on this site, Although we may never see eye to eye, but after only being commodore for a week and sending out emails to the reps for votes and having to wait for a day or two for a response and from 1 club's rep NO response I don't know how he did this for 13 years and actually did a pretty damn good job. Little did I know what he did behind the scenes.
If I had it my way I would clen house on a couple of reps, but it's not up to me to decide on the reps but the yacht clubs to send a rep that actually wants to be part of the decision making {CIYC}.
So Edd for all the shit I gave you over the years , well done on the job you did for EBYRA, and I have my work cut out for me.
I actually look forward to working with you on certain aspects of EBYRA.

I know, I know, I'm getting soft! ;)

Things always look different on the other side of the glass, don't they? Formal congratulations John and I know your energy and enthusiasm and love of the sport will only help push the EBYRA forward....they really are letting the inmates run the asylum,huh

So this raises the question of who is going to fill Espos shoes as the main antagonist in the critically acclaimed drama that is the EBYRA? Every hero needs an anti-hero...

By the way, congratulations J. It takes a big man to stand up and put in his time for something he believes in. Good onya.

Do you really care if they want you out there or not and I thought that would be the real incentive. You could kick some J111 36.7 and 105 butt. You should lead by example commodore.

Does the position of commodore mean that he should try to increase boat participation?
If that's the case, he should encourage ALL boats to come out and sail; including J-105s.

Discuss.

I would love the 105s too come out, if they gave us enough of them I would give them there own start.
I think they are afraid noe that the PHRF rating in closer to what it should be. They were all hero's sailing around with a rating of 102

Let's not talk about my driving after I saw your performance the 1 night I sailed at Can One. I thought Helen Keller was driving Shooting Star at the start and then you proceeded to go and finish 14 minutes behind us on the Swan 42 in a 5 mile race.
Good Job ;)

It would only be an incentive if they had a chance to beat me.

Yes, let's not talk about your driving, it is non-existent. I think if you wanted to give a clear picture you would look at the past 4 seasons and see how SS fared. Getting rolled at the start and beaten by a boat 6 feet bigger, in a reaching competition... well I don't think anything more needs to be said on that subject.

Hey, remember the night they let you drive Fantasy Girl and we passed right on by with a beater Pride 270? Good Job ;)

Richie can adjust your rating to level the field. I bet folks would be lining up for a shot at you. Besides, Luca wouldn't want to travel that far to drive Hustler. Wait, maybe you could drive and there would be no need to change your rating!

For the sake of tradition, an EBYRA 2013 thread should be started. After all, it's a new year and with that, a new season.

I might have to get Colin to chime in, it was W/L my friend. You are one delusional stupid fuck ;) .
Let's talk about the night you passed us on fantasy girl, I think it was a night that they canceled for NO breeze. The Coom started everyone together for fun, I would think that a 3000lbs boat should go by 10,000lbs with very little breeze while reaching,once again proving your a stupid fuck ;)

There are no W/Ls in Can One. IIRC it was a skewed shortish beat and two reaching legs. Besides, all as you did was to sit on your fat ass on the stern pulpit. So I think you have the delusional part backwards.
The rest is all just excuses. You weren't very happy going into the mark and we were having a good laugh about it all.
