It pays 1,000,000.00 Zimbabwein Kwachas per year.  We will gladly exchange that to Iranian Rials if you so desire.

The answer to most questions is almost always the most simple.  In this case it is a matter of geography. The closer an event is to a boat's home port, the higher the chance it will participate in that event and not an event further away.  See below, BCYA race (PHRF, OD & Multihull) and SPLC (PHRF & OD).  Note that up north there are a number of boats that do not have valid certs and race on club provisionals, I didn't go digging for their home port if they did not show up in the Ches-PHRF Valid List.  Any listed as Unaffiliated have valid certs and listed their own boat this way.

I submit that the events may compete for handful or two of boats in the Herrington, West River & Annapolis areas but that is all.  There are a few boats from north that went far south, and I saw two from far south that went north.  Nothing more.

In Topic: Are lessons really worth it?

23 July 2014 - 03:30 AM

Take your boat to a OD Buccaneer event that is 2+ days.  Talk to the class about coming a day or two early and needing someone aboard for both the early days and during the reagatta to teach you what you need to know about the boat.  Be very nice but set some expectations so that you get what you need.  If you are gracious about the help you will likely be treated like royalty and end up sailing with an old hand in the fleet, while learning more in those 2-3 days than you would have learned during that $400 session and an entire season sorting it out by yourself.


I just got a used buccaneer 18 off of craigslist and I really want to bring it out, I have never sailed before but I have it figured out how to get the mast and sail up. Should I take a $400 lesson or just try to figure it out?

I think the real issue is that few have the time for delivery, crew coordination, set up and take down, and then there is the cost of staying somewhere.  The middle class has been slipping for 15 years and doesn't have the cash or free time it used to and requires cheaper boats.  I'll abstain from a SB rant here when it comes to smiles per miles divided by dollars, that's covered below.


The J/70 class is so big because it's easy to trailer and is basically a Laser class when looking at OD.  Otherwise it's slower than a J/80 with the same SA/D #'s of a J/105, which people like because most are not interested in athletic boats that wash them out.  The 21.75' peoples trailer sailor.  It sure ain't sporty.


I don't think most boats can afford to travel and don't see the events as competing with each other.  I'll be at SPLC next year because it's 3 days of good racing, good fun, and the new format is similar to what I used to travel out of state for.  The only other event that I know of similar to what SPLC has become is the Stingray Regatta at FBYC.  Nothing in Annapolis or the north Bay comes close.

SBRW uses Down The Bay the week prior as their feeder race.  There are tons of docks in and around Solomons so I think the current format is ideal.  People do not get as much vacation time anymore unless they work for the government.


I'm not looking to start a non-SPLC discussion here.  If there was coordination with up north, it needs to happen in meetings, not on an SA flame board.
