Ha! I was gonna start this thread this morning, beat me to it...

I'm looking for a ride if anyone hears anything. Have several buddies who are looking too. SAS certified. Experience on everything from Swans to HPR and in between. Laid back and very easy to get along with. Same for mates...

PM me for cv and experience.

Cheers,
Murphness

Picked the following off the FAQ for the 2014 rule changes.  Seems like a good thing to me -

 

_________________________

 

Q: What is the reasoning behind the adoption of time penalties for the 2014 Race?
 
A: For many years, the BROC has imposed monetary penalties for failure to satisfy eligibility, entry, measurement and registration requirements. These monetary penalties have proven ineffective in the case of some deep-pocketed racers, and have led to an increasingly burdensome entry process and to the potential for unfair advantage for racers who may wish to make last-minute sail and other gear decisions dependent on weather forecasts. To counter this disturbing trend, BROC has replaced monetary penalties with elapsed time penalties beginning in 2014. These apply to administrative matters rather than infractions that may be associated with sailing the race course, and are designed to provide a level playing field (eligibility and measurement) or an orderly race administration (entry and registration).
 
The penalty for failure to meet eligibility, entry, measurement and registration requirements in a timely manner shall be the addition of 10 minutes to the yacht’s elapsed time for each 24 hour period or any part thereof for which the yacht failed to meet the relevant deadline. Such requirements include any rule having a deadline, e.g. late supplemental information form, rating data, fees, crew waivers, satisfactory completion of inspection, and registration appearances.

Don't you know - your job is to drive, trim, and navigate.  Mike's job is to keep all of us updated.

I'm expecting great things from you guys. After the absolute trouncing Scott and Resolute dished out on the many race courses they traversed last season, I'm wagering you'll do quite well in June. Hope to see you out there.

The Bermuda race website has announced that 180 boats have signed up for the race this year, but as with prior years, some won't make it to the starting line. For example on April 4, 2012, there were 183 boats signed up but only 165 ended up starting. If we exclude those that have not yet declared the class in which they intend to race, we get 170 boats or a 3% increase in entries over last year. The average number of entries from 1998-2012 is 186.4.
 
The double handed class has seen the most growth, in fact it’s the only class whose numbers have exceeded the centennial 2006 fleet.
