    Actually, if you go back in their stuff a few years they did do the Rhone downhill, I believe when they brought Magic Carpet down from Switzerland to the Med. Their channel is one of two I have ever expected money on (yours is the other).

    Saving Sailing (Really)

    Yes, I think you definitely would benefit from reading basic flag etiquette. FYI, the American flag is flying from the jackstaff, which is the premier place of honour, the burgee is flying from the masthead on a pig stick, exactly where it’s supposed to be.

    So kayaks are really quiet...... a couple of packets of sugar from the donut shop in the tank of the gen-set on the swim platform should alleviation the problem....

    So Dylan, when you finish with the Chesapeake you have to come check out Lake Superior.... just snapped this picture of Pic Island fine on our port bow this morning, unfortunately not a breath of wind, but 5he scenery is lovely (like Scotland without the whiskey).

    So there was some guy from Ontario Sailing on CBC this morning and he was implying that clubs were cancelling racing and regattas. Does anyone have any clear news on this? I know QCYC starts their season this morning (in spite of much of the land base being under water), what about ABYC Open? Is it a go?

    So, a week ago they posted another announcement saying they were working on it and were "hoping" to post results by Monday the 29th.... Right. What a joke. Can we get a refund on our entry fee?

    So it's now been six days. How difficult can it be to score one race with 24 boats in 4 divisions? We sailed our boats over there at some ungodly hour for one race. They happily collected our $75, now how about some results? If it's totally screwed up, tell us! The silence is perhaps the most annoying. 4 or 5 years ago I entered this regatta and had such a sour experience I didn't go back. Until this year. That was clearly a mistake. If what they are trying to do is rid themselves of the 4 ksb fleet, they are being very effective. I won't go back.
