In Topic: 2017 Centerboard Circuit of Texas

I'm looking forward to this year. I was thinking about Handicap for the UFO. My thoughts are you have to use some kind of wind rating system. Under 5 maybe 80-85 non-foiling, 6-10mph 70 for sometimes foiling and above 10 60-65 full on foiling.

I'd say a fair handicap for the UFO is the fleet starts on Saturday and the UFO starts on Sunday...


I will forward the website details and account to Jenny.

Thanks Lindy, I'll pass the message along tonight.

Are Aeros in TCC in 2017?  If they're out and sail in their own fleet, what's the worry about the UFO?  If they're in TCC, what's the worry about the UFO?

 

Regardless of the handicap one applies to the UFO, it is extremely unlikely that a Texas UFO guy or gal is going to win a TCC regatta.  None of the people whom I know are buying UFOs have tons of experience in sailing this kind of boat -- I sure as hell don't.  I sailed one once, and it was one HELL of a lot of fun.  And it will be even more fun trying to make my way around a course, "try" being the operant word.

 

Anyway, it's going to be fun.

Trying covers most of us TN! Especially Tortuga.

One of the fun parts is trying to figure out a handicap for the UFO. Heck it is always more important to win the party!

First and foremost, my apologies for the debacle that was 2016. I may have bit off a bit more than I should have and then ignored the suggestions of the membership. Will be a happy participant this year on the Aero 9.

 

Conroe has the TCC on the schedule for April 8&9 Spring Fling Regatta. This race will also serve as the Aero Texas State Chanpionships, Laser District 15 Circuit stop and the Sunfish regional World Qualifier.

 

For those that have not attended this regatta, we have plenty of camping space with a renovated clubhouse. Hope to have 50 boats this year.

 

Happy New Year, ya'll!

Happy New Mike! If you can just get the web site information to Harponette via email that'll work. My fishing and sailing schedules don't hardly collide at all except...Conroe.
