Ohfergodsakes - 40 minutes under AP in perfect conditions while the RO waits for the one mark boat (the other went mechanical and had to tie up alongside the signal boat) to set the gate first, then the windwark mark and offset. (Alpha course, PCYC Saturday.) Could you not set the windwark mark and offset first and get into the sequence, leaving 20-25 minutes for the markset boat to motor back downwind and set the gates?

Don't think RCYC's Commodore ever landed in the swimming pool at LYRA. I do recall the Commodore of Royal Hamilton YC getting a helpful push-he was sort of leaning forward telling a young lady in the pool that she ought to be wearing more than she was and, let's face it, he was asking for it on all counts. The bloke who pushed him is now living in Dubai. Probably get his head cut off for such a stunt there which is probably what would have happened to him if he'd done it at RCYC-and on the Bowling Green!


I was the guy standing on the Commodore's hobie (in the pool) with his daughter (the one who ought to be wearing more clothes) at that LYRA. Was a great event (minus the fog) Not to worry, the stunt won't be duplicated at this years LYRA. Different sense of humour at RCYC.

The weather ar least appears to be reasonable.

Long range is for good winds most of the three days.

Hopefully the RC work is an improvement.

You really think running that drifter on Sunday was "exceptional"? Friday and Saturday were awesome but they should have quit when they were ahead.

Depends on what course you were on, we never had a square beat and the race committee never had a change of course. Start timing was a little of (+/- 3-5 seconds). Not too impressed

Bill Visser did a kick ass job as RC on Charlie course for LYRA. It was nice to see a guy actually have fun on a comittee boat while running good races and making sensible decisions in difficult conditions.

Anybody have any stories from Saturday night? I heard that some may have had a little too much fun...

Five-Fifteen, a Legend 37 is looking for some crew for a 3 club regatta at Bluffers Park in Scarborough this Saturday and Sunday, we will be flying spinnaker.
3 races Saturday, 2 on Sunday, join us for either day or both.
Fabulous Saturday night party too.
It will be as casual as racing possibly can.
Boat leaves the dock from Highland Yacht Club at 10am, and should return before 4pm.
PM if interested.

I didnt see it that way. Every day the competitors were out on the course before the race commitee. Every day there was a postponement with wind because the course could not be set up in time (Fridays race for the 36.7's started 90 minutes after the first gun). The pin boat didnt have the marks inflated, the lines were tangled. Gates were set with barely 3 boat lengths between them, Offsets were ridiculously close to the Marks. Markset boats positioned themselves downwind of the windward marks. One boat ran out of gas, one boat ran out of batteries for their GPS. The start lines were set much too short for the 36.7 fleet.(4 General recalls, yet they never went to I flags). They didnt have enough marks when they had course changes. On one race the offset was put in after the first two boats went around without it. Very frustrating, after the incredible RC work done at levels the previous week.

I appreciate the work that the RC's do. It is not easy, and they are volunteers. I would admit that if I had to be on one of those boats in big winds, sitting and waiting for the sailors to finnish, I would be puking up a spleen. But without honest critique it will not get better.

On the positive side. PCYC was a beautiful venue. People were friendly, the food was great, the dockage was great, and the band the last night was phenominal.

What is the best way to get into Shark Racing? I'm located in Grimsby, so, anywhere from Niagara to Kingston is within reasonable driving boundaries for me. I race on an Express 30 in Bronte at the moment but would love to get into Sharks. If anyone has any info I would greatly appreciate it :)

There is a lot of shark racing around the lake, RCYC in Toronto has quite a few.

Enter the QCYC/NYC Open for a chance to Win A New Sail from UK-Halsey!
The summer is ticking by as fast as ever. But I hope you won't miss your chance to celebrate a successful 2011 racing season with one last big regatta party on the Toronto Islands at QCYC...

Last year, the racing was great and the party blew the power out.

For 2011, I'm very excited to announce that our committee has rounded up some tremendous sponsor support, including the giveaway of a gift certificate for $4,000 from UK-Halsey Toronto. Every boat that enters our Sept. 10th regatta has an equal shot at this incredible prize - however the registered skipper must be present for the 8:00pm draw back at QCYC that night in order to win (ID may be required).

And why not invite your family and friends to join you back at Queen City's historic clubhouse after the race? You'll be enjoying a rum tasting by Appleton, an all-you-can-eat Steak Sandwich buffet dinner, plus lots of entertainment and prizes from many great sponsors mooring all weekend is free for participating boats and tender service to and from the mainland is free for all regatta crews and guests (just inform the captain that you are attending the regatta).

Date: Saturday, September 10, 2011
(plus Sunday, Sept 11 for J24s & J22s)
Host Club: QCYC, Toronto, Ontario
First Warning: 10:45
Entry Fee: $55 (or $85 for J24s & J22s)
Classes: IRC, PHRF, Whitesail, and One Design Classes

Register Online: www.lorc.org/Registration.htm
More Info: www.qcyc.ca/sailing/racing/qcycregatta.html

It's a one-day event for most classes, so race all day; party all night; then you can take Sunday to relax on the islands...

Andrew:
You should have come out more often. 515 might have been 10ft longer than you, but it was a HUNTER, with a disgusting looking wing keel! It was extremely well sailed, consistently at the top of the fleet overall.

The old Press Gang becomes the new 515 in IRC 1 and the old Mummy becomes the new Press Gang also in IRC 1.

We have some inquiries from some smaller boats, the last of the PHRF racers, so might have an IRC 4 next season.

We now have around 100 boats on Lake Ontario with IRC certificates, around 80 in Canada and 20 on the US side.

John...

Thanks for the updated gossip...would have come out more often but busy down the West End building a One Design Fleet...and as long a didn't shoot myself in the foot...was more than competetive in IRC3...

R.I.P. My beloved Hunter, obituary coming soon.
Yup, purchased the IMX-38 known as Press Gang, and now fully prepared for a good'ol ass whippin' in IRC 1.
The IMX-38 is a fabulous boat, and speaking of fabulous 38's, there is a great deal on a very good one in Cleveland.
Fantastic race record and motivated seller, I would have bought that one but the price reduction came after I purchased PG.
So with one already in Port Credit, if someone locally were to purchase this one, we'd have 3 in Toronto, consider it people!!
There must be someone out there ready for a change??
A bargain at 85k, and I'd be more than willing to assist with the delivery back to T.O.
Contact Robert, he's a very decent guy. rmwilber@gmail.com

Hi everyone,

So please lets all wish him a healthy speedy recovery and lets get him back in adventureland for the upcoming season.

An update on Chris, back surgery a success, plate and screws installed, but the tumour was not fully removed, so chemo and/or radiation will begin soon, I'm told all will be good eventually, but no foredeck for Chris this season, he will be dearly missed up front.
He is in very good spirits and is extremely positive, so lets hope he is well enough to at least sit at the back of the boat with me once racing season begins.
Get well soon my friend, and hurry back, we're not leaving you behind!!!!

This means we are looking for a foredeck person or two for the IMX-38 & J-22, one to do Wednesday evening club races at HYC & LORC regattas on the IMX-38, and the same or a second person for the J-22 on Thursdays at NYC and the local J-22 regattas. Will also post on the Crew forum.
It is a friendly and very fun crew with great chemistry.

Who here reads "Crew Anarchy", just as i thought!!
Placed to following post there but figured it maybe batter noticed here.

I am looking for an experienced foredeck / bowperson interested in racing aboard a IMX-38 in Toronto’s LORC circuit, IRC 1.

Although this IMX is new to us this season, our previous boat, “Five-Fifteen” had very respectable race record. The crew is genuine, loyal, extremely friendly, and welcoming. The skipper, competitive and quietly intense at times. We are a true team, and as such, we form an oddly successful chemistry that keeps us consistent, and on the podium often.

You will definitely be King or Queen of your domain, and with teammates at the mast and in the sewer, the front end will operate like a well-oiled machine.
Party?? Oh yeah, we party, no one goes thirsty here, the icebox was the selling feature of the new boat, it’s the freakin’ huge!!. Fun and good times are a prerequisite and expected.

Along with the LORC schedule, participation in club racing would greatly be appreciated, unless of course you are a total Rock Star. Club racing is our practice night, and it will either be Tuesdays at ABYC, or in Wednesdays 3 club series out of Highland YC at Bluffers Park.

I also require the same for the J-22 out of National YC on Thursday evenings, and the local J-22 circuit.

Check us out, we’re a decent bunch.

With this weather there should be no excuses for missing the ABYC regatta, and still 2 weeks until launch.

The IRC fleet seems to be growing, word on the street has new some players getting certificates this season, including; a Taylor 40, J145, C&C 110, Dash 34, Olson 911S, Express 35, a couple of C&C 35’s, a bunch of 24-27 footers. Plus another Bene 40.7, a second X35, and a third IMX 38.

If the last 3 join the LORC Regatta series, IRC 1 will be a very busy division, then throw in the Killings 50, the McConaghy 38 and a second Farr 30, whoohoo fun times ahead. And I believe “Coug” the Peterson 41 will be full time this season too.

Anyone know of others out there not mentioned.
Who's in, who's out?
New boats??

LORC is patiently waiting for a ruling from Revenue Canada whether we need to add GST/HST to the fees.

...a bunch of 24-27 footers


This reminds me :

If anyone with a boat in the 24-28' range would like to race in a PHRF spinnaker division on Tuesday nights at the National, send me a PM.

We race to the west of the island, on proper W/L courses with inflated tetrahedron marks.

Poda is coming over from TS&CC. Who else would like to join us?

Maybe not right away, we just got the boat and are on a bit of a steep learning curve.... maybe later in the season.
What's the rating spread?

We have boats from 201 to 246, with most clustered around 222-225. I'd like to get a few more boats in the 190-200 range, so we can make two divisions with tighter spreads.

Just got our new cert, we rate 199 NFS, I expect we'd be mid 180's. We'll see how the spring shakedown goes.

Mid 180s would work out great. I've got a Viking 28, and possibly one other. If memory serves correctly, they are around 180.

Anyone know of any CS27s, C&C27s, and similar boats that want to come play?

My FS PHRF was 183 last year - haven't seen the new ratings yet.

Sorry I did not reply until now; in Charleston since the 18th. 183 is right in the sweet spot

1830h first warning. I will see what accomodations we can make. Overnight docking at the NYC is a no-brainer. What else can we do to make it happen? We want you.

LOL. Convince more of my crew to leave work early two days in a row :)

So far I've got me plus one other. But I'm going to ask around to some other Wednesday night crews to see if I can find some more people. Maybe even another boat... who knows.

I'd like to do it, so I'm sure I'll at least manage to get out for a few of these races. What's the deal with visiting boats? Do I need to register with somebody before I check in with the RC on the water?

Agree on decision to postpone the start. But 11am Sat warning pretty well cancels any boats from east getting to the start line and competing. Short course to Burlington/PCYC? WTF? Maybe an 8pm start on Sat? But then LOSHRS on Sunday is toast.
