I'm not going to bite Dave, Your entitled to your opinions. it didn't fall on deaf ears regarding the ratings Dave. It was never in my control. If you read the prescriptions on US sailing web site about running a race using portsmouth ratings maybe you'd realize it isn't the clubs we sail at. It is US Sailings (national) rules. It's the only set of rules that the clubs have to use as a guideline. You want to make some up? Have at it. I'll be happy to vote for you to be commodore next year.
You betcha I remember, I'm gonna sit on my hands for a bit and let some of the others chime in. I do remember you really legging it out last weekend off of the start line before the breeze piped up. You can observe a lot from the back. lol
