    We did 1 race last year. You may not have seen us, we were really far out front.

    A -3 for a "high performance boat" this year on my PHRF cert (Soto 40). Nothing different in sails or anything else. It literally says that on my cert; "-6 DCHP adj. for asymmetric spinnakers and for high performance boats." 2020 just said "-3 for boats that carry an asymmetric spinnaker"... Is it just -3 for all high performance or is a TP 52 a bigger ding? Is a J111 a high performance boat? Melges 32? -000
  3. Rules like this make sailing less fun.

    Any new boats coming to West Michigan for next year? I would figure the summer season will be back to normal in 2021...

    What is the closest 40’er to a TP52?

    I own a Soto 40. We race against a GP42 and win often (haven't raced this year) with PHRF and beat them last year on the Chicago Mac (ORR). Its not all carbon so a poor man's 52 I guess but it performs well for its rating. Set up nearly the same as a 52 but no grinder. -000

    I don’t know who needs to hear this but the forecast for the GRSC Commodores Cup is light and shifty as of now. Don’t change it from its original course, we don’t need a repeat of last year. -000

    2020 Hook Race

    Hauling the mail. This is their AIS, their tracker seems F'd.

    This was 2016 Chi Mac in the forecasted conditions. Take some Motrin and enjoy!

    BYC Mackinac - Time to Pull the Plug?

    30kt gusts on the nose for a melges 32 is a gear breaker for that boat.

    Hoodlum is absolutely making the right call. Forecasted conditions are a sure boat breaker for a melges 32.

    I received a refund on my card from Queens. Not Mac so far.

    Tripp 33 will go over 15 kts in a 65 knot squall with just the #3 jib up, been there. That may be the only way it goes above 15 kts though.

    Makes sense as to why my office FB Page is getting some random hits recently.

    Point to point makes it a bit more difficult. Just trying to make a race that doesn't require tons of planning for logistics and an out and back format does just that (for west coast of Michigan boats especially.) Nothing against the Hook, glad to see it's still on.

    Race from Muskegon round bell buoy in Milwaukee and back. 130 miles ish. Chi Mac Saturday. Thoughts? MYC would run it on Yachtscoring. ARMA would be in.
