  1. I sailed on her when she was Abino Robin, owned by Al Bernel. Al was an awesome guy, gave a lot of us who were teenagers our first taste of a serious racing yacht, and all that meant. I can't remember the exact year, maybe '75 or '76, after the Lake Ontario Race, he had four of us bring the boat back from Rochester, through the Welland Canal, to Buffalo Yacht Club Point Abino station. I was the oldest guy on the boat, either 18 or 19. Perfect east breeze from Rochester to Port Weller, we flew the main, kite and blooper for about 30 miles. You'll like this blast from the past.
  2. Lefty paranoia? Are you serious? It's your boy trump that is screaming about mail in ballot fraud.
  3. This isn't Political Anarchy, it's Democracy Anarchy, as in a bit of Anarchy to save democracy. If you don't like it here, I'm sure Scot won't mind at all if you go downscale to scuttlebutthole or Ehman's facebook page. He loves him some trump supporters.
  4. I obviously do not expect any response. I thought that adding one more email to their inbox would be an easy way to help the cause. Whether they have 1,000 or 100,000 emails to deal with, it's a massive pain in the ass for them and should help then to feel some pain. Though I'm not sure they care either. They seem to like the pain of being a bitch. I wonder which of them gets it first from the gimp.
  5. For those of you who are American citizens, here are the email addresses of the six Governors for the US Post Office. Below is a copy of the email I just sent to them. These are the email addresses listed on the USPS site, so it's public information. Cut and paste, and/or edit, but take one minute and send an email to these people. mduncan@inezdepositbank.com, barger.jm@gmail.com, ron.bloom@brookfield.com, roman@rmiv.com, lee.moak@moakgroup.com, directoraccessmailbox@cigna.com Gentlemen, The US Post Office is a constitutionally mandated public service
  6. The thing I think is some combination of funny/sad is that Ehman is screaming from the mountain about how S&S is tarnishing LBYC's reputation. Oh please. Other than the couple of hundred people who read this page and watch his show, no one in the sailing community at large knows anything about, or cares in the least about S&S and the perception they are hurting LBYC by continuing to be Dalton's bitch. Coutts actively ignored the US market, the change to Bermuda didn't help, and now the event being in NZL and in freak boats, the attention paid to the AC by American's is probably at an
  7. Ehman and I used to be very close friends. Have not spoken to him in about six months. He is not the journalistic voice of sailing the US. He's just a guy trying to make a living by stirring shit out in the open, when he used to do it all behind the scenes. I actually feel sorry for him. He used to be a leader, now, not so much. I suspect you are correct about why Buckley hasn't given up yet. As always, follow the money. Could be Dalton's, could be something else, but clearly there's something going on.
  8. Excellent report. Imagine that, a boat on which people can actually be comfortable. But where was the report on the important stuff, like the stereo? Must be more old IOR warhorses around there, Choate 40's perhaps. Islander 40 was also a great boat, and a Peterson design.
  9. More helpful info for the NYC area specifically, but applies to all of NY State Cuomo & NY state is coordinating. Email address in that link given to a garment maker volunteering to make masks: https://twitter.com/NYGov/status/1241095112039575552?s=20
  10. From Hayden Goodrick: My company is mass manufacturing masks! We have masks available ready to ship. If anyone wants to DM me for The information on our masks and orders we can start taking orders now. Ready to ship ASAP hayden@triosportswear.com
  11. Mark Washeim of One Sails on Long Island has engaged, started this FB thread. Click on the blue FB icon in the upper right of his post to get to his thread.
  12. I’m seeing twitter posts and WSJ front page stories with increasing frequency about the fact the country is running out of surgical masks, and some hospitals are resorting to having people sew them in the hospital. That made me think the sailing industry and community could mobilize to help reduce this problem. Many cities have a loft floor, a few sewing machines, and people who know how to sew. Here is what is needed to be identified: Hospital with need Buyer of surgical supplies for hospital Specs of masks Desired materials, and second best option
  13. One does have a loft in the US. Mark Washeim moved from Doyle to One a few months ago. I'm sure you are going to see Dragon with One Sails pretty soon. https://www.onesails.com/international/usa-north-atlantic
  14. David Crosby. His new music and band are outstanding. Full replay of last nights concert at the The Capitol Theater in Port Chester here. The encore is Woodstock, and Ohio, just superb. Concert doesn't start until about 30 minutes into the video, just scroll ahead.
  15. Yes, that exactly accurate. I was on the USYRU/US Sailing Inshore committee for something like 8 years. I remember when all these rules about behavior of juniors at events were starting to come into play. I was by far the youngest person in the room, and I just couldn't believe that they wanted to legislate behavior off the grounds of the YC (as if it was going to stop it, it didn't). I still don't understand what right an event organizer as over anyone, even those under 18 (or even 21) when they are not on the club grounds (or in housing provided by the event).
