CYC Verve- Long Distance SI's concerns

05 August 2013 - 07:40 PM

Why can't CYC get these things right?  They were screwed up for the Nood Long Distance Race and if they don't do something about this soon, it'll be screwed up for this Saturday as well.

I wrote the race coordinator about this last Friday and am yet to receive a response....
Upon reviewing the SI's for the long distance race, specifically the addendum A, I have some concerns.

Course D, states all marks taken to starboard.  I believe that 'Clemson Shoal Lighted Bell Buoy 4' should be taken to Port vs Starboard.  
Course E, states all marks taken to starboard.  I believe that 'Clemson Shoal Lighted Bell Buoy 4' should be taken to Port vs Starboard.
Course F, states all marks taken to port.  I believe that 'Wilson Ave Intake Crib Light' should be taken to Starboard vs Port.
RE the course Diagram, for Course F, the Wilson Crib is not depicted as the first mark after the start as per the leg by leg descriptions.

Spreader Tips - Should the shrouds be locked in place or relatively lo

21 May 2013 - 03:00 AM

Hi all,

I have a very simple rig.  One set of well swept back spreaders.  One set of uppers & one set of lowers shrouds. I just replaced my shrouds and found that the end of my spreaders has a piece that bolts down to the spreader it self and has the ability to lock down the upper shroud in the spreader.  

 

So, how tight should the spreader end cap be?  I can readily lock the shroud pending the torque applied to the bolts.  BTW, 5/16" or 8mm 1x19 wire.

Thanks in advance for any advice...
