Great regatta, I remember a number of years back we brought in a J39 in from Cleveland. Camped in the RV and the dinghy garages at the Manhassett YC, beautful place, there was this butler kinda guy following us around. I think he thought we were going to steal the furniture. One of the crew asks where to buy the t-shirts, butler guy replies: oh, t-shirts...... what a good idea.

Was a great regatta, just the commute was a bit of a pain.

I just looked at the NOR--they intend (weather permitting) to send us around government marks (circa 1990) on either the first Sunday or the second Saturday of the series! Just like the old days--the "christmas tree" of red and green placards designating the marks to be rounded.

I haven't sailed races like that in years. Annapolis sailors take heed--"old school" racing coming to a venue near you

Even more interesting, when you register online they give the opportunity to vote on your preference regarding the gov't marks racing. The choices (paraphrased) are Yes, No and Whatever. Seriously.

Whatever.

I think that kind of course will be fun for a change---need to do a little navigating--read a chart. Maybe they will do a real "throwback" race and make us finish up the bay in front of the mooring field. We used to call Manhasset Bay itself the "equalizer"--no matter how big a lead you might have--everyone would bunch up in the bay and the race would start over again for the last 3/4 mile.

Interesting about the govt marks thing, that should be a fun change of pace. One thing to note though, the first weekend is supposed to be the J-105 East Coast Championships - wonder how the fleet will react if one of those days is sailed around govt marks, or will the 105's be seperate? And please, lets not turn this into yet another 105 bashing thread - we get it, the boats are slow and underpowered, and we're all a bunch of hacks.

I'll bet John's "family" has "persuaded" the RC to re-introduce the steeplechase in order to take advantage of my well-documented inability to read/follow the posted course. :lol:

That is an interesting conundrum--I would think that if the J/105 sailors point that out--the government marks course will be sailed on the second Saturday. that will make everyone happy

It's actually been in the NORs for a couple of years, but hasn't been used.

If you get an attachment assigning Gov't marks letters, then the RC is serious.

Looks like the 105's will have their own circle the first weekend.

Question to PHRF 70 - 90 boats,

Are you racing IRC or PHRF?

I'm surprised they are allowing both, that could lead to some interesting divisions.

sure--as soon as we race in a real one-design regatta. I will buy sails as soon as the J/29 NA's are about to start.

I guess as long as RP can hold off a Championship--I can hold off buying new sails. (as if we need them to race PHRF!!)

I guess we will be holding on to our current inventory for quite a while then! That trophy won't be coming off the mantle any time soon.

I agree--it really sickens me. When we had the trophy for 4 straight years--the thought of not having a NA regatta was the end of the world! Now that it is, once again, in the hands of Chesapeake Bay sailors--we will never compete for it again. WTF???

I think that's a great idea. What concerns me is that the J/29 class has no leadership at all. I have no idea if Bob Wardwell is alive or dead--no one has heard from him since Oxford Md. Is he still president?--If he is, why has no one been in touch with him about a NA's in Nova Scotia--or anywhere???!!!

I think that's a great idea. What concerns me is that the J/29 class has no leadership at all. I have no idea if Bob Wardwell is alive or dead--no one has heard from him since Oxford Md. Is he still president?--If he is, why has no one been in touch with him about a NA's in Nova Scotia--or anywhere???!!!


Pitman for President?

You honestly think you'll do better in IRC??? That would move you to Div 3 which includes a lot of well sailed boats. I think you have a far better shot as the fast boat in Div 6, especially if it is light-med. breeze with your new masthead kite.

in my last experience of 36.7 against hustler was that hustler can kick your ass boat for boat. they will sail lower and faster and come out of the tacks faster. you can bring that crew on your boat and then write lengthy international accolade letters to the world, thanking hustler for helping you dominate the regatta. do it!

s.

ps, but back then i think hustler had shiny new rags

Solo,

Will you be doing a guest appearance on Hustler this regatta?

i'd NEVER agree w/ LI punk kid, but the entry list for J109 NAs in Long Beach as of 10/5 was 7 (yes Seven) boats.

Where in your pointy head is there a little voice that told you i give a shit about wether you or some of the old decrepit shitbags that hang out here like me?

Two asshatas can agree on one thing, and still disagree on thousands more.

How many NA Championships have 7 boats signed up just before the event? Maybe the J29's?.


If you want Jboat one design crusier /racer a used 105 is a much better deal and $150k less, which you can use to ship your boat to the NAs , key west, etc (where there will be about 30 boats) and back about 20 times. and you wil have money left over to buy some beer and maybe go to a trade school for a semester or two. ASSHAT!

Your funny.. You have no clue what your talking about again..

Now for the record, are you from the Duffy's Bait and Tackle family? Ya little redheaded fuck.

Well it depends, was your 6 years old talking about the Continental or the Continental GTC. The GTC would be a better comparison but the Vanquish is really really schweet!

Very twisted first race. Wind all over the place and up and down in velocity. We were lucky to salvage a 4th (I think). Nice job Thin Man winning that race. Second race we lead at every mark but in the end I think Espo and the boys corrected over us. From what I can figure Hustler has 4 points and there is a three way tie for 2nd with 6, Tenacious, Thin Man and the J92s, then comes Iris with 7 (I think).

Hey, does anyone know how to work the mute button on this thing?


Manhasset YC sucks... can't they post results in a timely fashion. Everyone else does.

Don't tell me Tenacious is in the hunt? I guess a blind squirrel occassionally finds a nut, but I doubt they'll be able to handle the fame and fortune of being in 2nd place. Hey, I bet that masthead kite helped a lot!

From memory (addled though it may be)...

Hustler 3+1=4
Tenacious 2+5=7
Strategery 5+2=7
Thin Man 1+7=8
Deviation ?+?=9

und so weiter.

And did I hear correctly that PRO is "thinking about" doing the distance race today? :unsure:
