What's a trunk slammer?

Someone who belongs to a YC and then 'slams their trunk' at the end of the weekend as they head home to work and support the YC but who are regarded as outsiders because they don't live where the YC is.  (Remember, Triple 000 is from Musketucky).

So they just sent out the first "call for entries" and currently have only 59ish boats registered (not all paid either).  Is this average, high, low?  In my opinion, they should pick a port and sail to it every year. Make it a real race with crossing time records that big programs want to throw money at breaking and division records that can be held and promoted even by the 150 raters.  Changing ports every year only makes the trunk slammers happy.

 

 

Thoughts?

I take offense at the comment about trunk slammers...not all of us can live in a yachting town.  Plus, those of us who are "trunk slammers" probably make up a significant portion of the yachting population.

 

Just sayin....

4 J111 signed up for LTYC Ugotta Regatta...It would be fun to get a few more and maybe get a one-design start.
