  1. Thanks for the responses! I found the language 'shall not (a) prohibit a boat from competing' difficult to understand... But then, I am not a (sea) lawyer
  2. Prior to the start, boat commits a foul and wants to make amends (do a turn). But then there's a general recall. Does the skipper still have to do a turn in the next sequence?
  3. It's their new ILCA! LP finally saw the light...
  4. Did anyone really think that US sailors had a chance for a gold medal, or any medal, for that matter? Prior results weren't promising at all...
  5. I often read that video 'evidence' can be misleading and doesn't carry much weight, if any, at a protest meeting. Surprised that in this case the video 'overruled' the tracker.
  6. First start: DEN was the leeward boat, NED was close to windward. I didn't see DEN do anything wrong. No touch as far as I could tell. Puzzled! PS: Where is BRASS to explain it all?
  7. Please remember that Gary Jobson isn't talking to the anarchy folks. Hopefully, his audience is much wider than that.
  8. With such a long racing resume, Page should know that to win the race you don't need to win the start.
  9. Some more tidbits: Questions about the Amflite | SailingForums.com
  10. About one hundred (almost new) Sunfishes will be available for your sailing adventures after the upcoming Worlds (late October).
  11. If you search the Sunfish Forum, you are likely to find the specs of the Al tube. You can then have a mast made by adding top and bottom caps. The Sunfish Forum | SailingForums.com
  12. Wit respect to Ken Misegades' post, these days it's hard to find a 'good used Sunfish' for a few hundred dollars...
  13. The organizers need to have a traffic control person (maybe in a boat) to make landing easier for returning sailors.
  14. You need to ask why the hull has a hatch/deck plate. But the good point is that you will be able to inspect the mast tube donut/cradle.
  15. Age in place and join the Masters for a bit better behavior, overall...
  16. I second Robbie's opinion and would not do that... Can't you pull your boat up on the dock?
  17. A new way of making a big boat stop?
  18. Proper SIs should take care of mommy boat issues.
  19. It looked to me that 41 (on starboard tack) had to head up to stay away from port tacker 59. Alternatively, 41 was going to tack anyway. The video probably makes the boats appear closer to one another than they really were.
  20. The things a Laser/ILCA can teach...
  21. 59 vs 41 at 10:20 not a foul? Unrelated: are those robotic marks?
