I suppose some might enjoy seeing who can circumnavigate the world the slowest?

 

About as exciting as who can go the fastest in a straight line below 20kts, in a flat sea and always upwind.

Some sort of contest being held to see who bends over furthest and with the deepest sincerity?

 

+1. Either Artemis or BAR.

I'll spell it out slooowly

only 4 boats originally entered IRC, there was then the option for fast modern cruising boats to enter IRC passage div which a few did. What I am saying is that they have now created 3 divisions of IRC with ANY boat that has a cert, which total 21, I'm not keeping up, I'm way ahead, Tiger.

Three boats entered IRC Racing, the rest entered IRC Passage. For the life of me I don't understand why they persist with this idea of having "racing" divisions and "passage race only" divisions. If they had a mix of passage races and windward/leewards, the regatta program could be modified to run the w/l's on days when the breeze is not co-operating.

 

IRC C has a rating spread of 212 points! Race two had an elapsed time spread of two hours - how can that be good (fair) racing!

 

Why the fark would do W/Ls in the WSs? Can do that in any shitty harbor anytime.

So that when the wind shuts down the course can be shortened before you get carried off to Mackay in the tide.

 

Last place you never want to go is Mackay....

 

Just that the WS naturally lends itself to longer courses.
