In Topic: Changing PHRF ratings mid-event?

06 August 2013 - 12:53 AM

My point remains

Covering and slowing a PHRF  competitor is unsportsmanlike.
......
Summary. Covering is not part of fair play in a PHRF race.


Sounds like you've got a one design boat and don't feel others should even bother racing.

Using your logic, why would it be okay to cover a one design boat and not a handicapped racing boat?  One is messing with an individual boat to better their standings in either case.  Very common in a regatta in those last couple of races...

Well, I sent this reply off aft receiving a reply from CYC.

I haven't completely reviewed the amendment however regarding course F, either the diagram is incorrect still or the description is.  Passing the Wilson crib to port basically means head straight to the Grossepoint mark and ignore the Wilson crib.

Stay tuned for Amendment 2.....

Also make sure you open up the fuel tank vent.  A too small vent will make the engine think it's starving from fuel

Also, be sure the fuel line is seated all the way with at the engine. I had the same issue, replaced the coupler/hose connector at the engine and my problem went away.

Ok,

So we were a few boats farther to leeward of this and observed the entire exchange.  The T in question was Erica.  She clearly refused to go up as the leeward boat slowly came up on her.  Quite the verbal exchange on the water.  I'm sure the leeward boat didn't want to gybe yet as all three of us were windwards boat of this large (60) boat pack making it's way up Grays Reef towards the #3 can.  The ideal gybe was quite a bit (maybe 5 minutes later) at point we and the other two boats crossed the fleet on starboard.  We just rolled both boats to leeward relatively easily as they got into it.  You know those T10's.  You mess with some of them and they can be like a dog with a bone and just mess with you for messing or being in their vicinity.  It wasn't a game I was going to play...

hey whats a F11.6 ??


Farr 11.6

When Bruce first drew up the Farr38 (around 1977) he called it a Farr 11.6, not to be confused with the new Farr116.

I meant not to be confused with the 2006 design Farr 11S
