From Stagg, manager of the Farr 40 Class.


“The Santa Barbara Yacht Club did an absolutely splendid job,” Stagg said. “It is one of the best clubs I’ve been to for a long time. The members were very, very welcoming and treated everyone associated with our class just wonderfully.”


Nice work by everyone involved.

You never have to sail your proper course. (But don't worry about that)

Limits on the starboard boat's ability to alter course comes from 16.1 and 16.2.


so in a cross port thinks they have room how ever how small,  stb gets lift and takes it, port no longer has room , stb ducks by however how much...      so does port foul or does stb break  16.1  ?

Viper 640 - Venom, Jeff Grange, 3rd

Random Leg - Prevail, Bill Guilfoyle, 4th, Rock and Roll, Bernie Girod 5th

And of course every one of those skipper names are followed by "and crew".  SB is blessed with great sailors all around.

Way back, I was crew on a 53 footer, Saturday race.  We hit the layline for the weather mark, and are steaming along in a good breeze.


We pass just to leeward of a small boat with a wide aft deck, couple busy on the aft deck.  He has a towel over his ass covering just that part.  Everyone on the rail (all guys at that time) yelling and making noise, greatly annoying the couple.  We sail on, it gets quiet, no reaction from the small boat.


We were lead boat, and I asked, 'I wonder if they realize there's about ten more boats on that layline.'


One more boat passed them, and suddenly the smll boat motored briskly away.
