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 your logic is that the IRC divisions are not IRC which is why they're calling those divisions IRC with all entered boats having current IRC certs.

Obviously this is can't be IRC racing, so what is it?

Looks like the big one, you know the worlds best ocean racing yacht is getting her arse handed to her.

Maybe it's the new seating arrangements.

No one ever said anything like that. JC is just mumbling incoherently to himself. He does that.

 

Great to see Bob out there enjoying the racing.

 

Looks like a re-run of Weekend at Bernie's.

 

How's that Peter Cole 4kt SB of your's going?

Another famous prediction - just like AC35 won't happen.

They must have trawled all entrants for anyone with an IRC cert to try and make the regatta look good. Only 4 boats entered IRC, FAIL!

 

Actually 23 across 3 divs, do keep up sunshine.
