In Topic: Anybody Going To Watch Real Match Racing This Week?

Today, 12:26 AM

Dicko was/is competent as a sailor, just not as a leader or even member of a team as far as I can see.
Silly thing is that whenever I've seen him interviewed, he always seems very likeable.
I guess it comes down to the heat of the contest and the effect it has on some people.

The heat of " battle " in sailing can really change someone and I would bet that every regatta has their fair share .

I will pass on sailing with those known " screamers " and personally I tend to believe that a quiet boat / crew is a fast boat as well as much more pleasurable one to spend those long hours on.

Is he as corrosive as big brother?

He's actually quite professional and has managed to make a nice living here for many years as a pro . He has run many different programs with some of the top So Cal teams . Reading up on his Ficker success apparently his match racing skills are up to par . I have only done off shore and bouy events with him . He's one of the many " funny talkers " that have done well here .

A local kiwi transplant won the feeder series Ficker Cup which gains him entry into this event . His last name might be familiar to some , Scott Dickson

Baby Dicko or brother of Dicko?
WetHog   :ph34r:
It's his younger brother . He's been in the So. Cal area for at least 20 years now . He was my crew boss on a whitbred 60 .

From this past event

" Dickson is no stranger to Ficker Cup racing, and it showed. From 2000 through 2007 he owned the event, winning every title except for 2005. His second-place finish in Ficker Cup 2016 scored him a berth in last years Congressional Cup, where he sailed his way into the semi-finals and finished fourth among the field of international pros. His lucky charm this week was his father Roy Dickson, a legendary New Zealand yachtsman who faithfully watched every race. "

They are out at it today . I see one matched pair going thru some side by side speed tests
but they are a bit too far out to see who it is . A few solo players as well .
