  1. I don't recall all the boats going north, away from Hawaii, ever. This is going to be an interesting year.
  2. >> And that friends is the short version of why sailing is on life support. I was going to say almost the same thing. While such rule are appropriately enforced in competitive classes, Protesting the guy in a Catalina 30 (or some other FKSB) who just decided to try sailboat racing on a Wednesday night for the first time is hurting the sport.

When a sport focused site tries to twist sporting event viewers into support of a candidate that some like and some do not, they lose a lot of credibility the same way CNN has.
