  1. As did ORR if you were willing to incur the full measurement cost I believe?
  2. Buy an ad! (Is that something people still say on SA?)
  3. This may not have gotten around yet but they've upgraded and are now Sail22.
  4. In a Scuttlebutt item on Friday they also mentioned how the state (MI) requires that social distancing be maintained while on boats. The comment was that this should be done below deck as well. Seems that means only 1-2 people allowed below deck on some of the smaller boats since there's probably not much more than 6' of separation between usable spaces on those boats. Are we at the point where the attempt to hold this event is considered beating a dead horse?
  5. Where's your mast? Where are your grinders? Who is flaking the genoa so it's ready to go up at the bottom? Who is pulling up the new genoa for a change? Who is pulling the kite into the boat at the bottom? You got one guy doing main? How's that work when it's blowing 20 and it's time to gybe? Sorry but there's just lots of holes that you aren't able to fill with this plan. I agree with everyone who is saying that you can distance race very short-handed. Lots of time to plan. Lots of time between maneuvers. And you can add an auto-helm and drop one more person. BUT, getting
  6. I'd be curious to know what you envision the 8 positions would be especially when going around marks and gybing.
  7. CASRA: LET’S GET RACING! JUNE 17, 2020 As many of you know, the Chicago Harbors will open this coming Monday, June 22nd. We are excited to tell you that the first CASRA race has been scheduled for Sunday, July 5th, which will mark the beginning of CASRA’s new Social Distancing Series. We’ll have options available for short-handed crews, casual sailors, and everyone else looking to have fun on the water. There will be something for everyone! Watch for race documents, entry portals, and series race dates next week. We look forward to seeing you on the water s
  8. I'll get my popcorn going now. If anyone actually tried it, it would be beyond entertaining. As long as no one gets hurt. Which would be a distinct possibility I think.
  9. This JUST in from CASRA: Preliminary Plans for 2020 Racing Season JUNE 9, 2020 2020 has proven to be a very challenging year. We want to thank everyone who completed our special 2020 Spring Survey. Your input has given us some great insight on planning for this season. At this point, we can now share some preliminary plans for 2020. Like you, we have heard that harbors are opening “soon.” And we know that, based on your survey responses, many of you want to get on the water and have fun in a responsible way. Consistent with those goals, we plan to offer the First Annual (
  10. Since you seem to be in the know, what is at the top of her list?
  11. They need to update the countdown on the home page.
  12. The WHO says sailing is a low risk sport according to World Sailing: https://worldsailing.activehosted.com/index.php?action=social&chash=52720e003547c70561bf5e03b95aa99f.529&s=a819a449465280e4e55d7c13a8ebd90b But the USA is going to leave the WHO so we can't rely on that information, right?
  13. Yes. You just have to start in Detroit. Bayview Mackinac Race - Update - June 2, 2020 At this time due to conflicting timing requirements the Mackinac Race Authority (MRA) has made the decision to only sail the Shore Course for the 2020 Bayview Mackinac Race. The patience and flexibility strategy is paying off. Slowly but surly (sic) the issues that we have faced this year are being resolved. It is looking increasingly likely we are having a race. So, to get ready: Register Complete all the registration requirements Get your boat ready Confirm your reservati
