  1. Last year the PHRF fleet was 3 white sail boats - this might increase participation. The move is designed to try and help boost the PHRF participation. I think 2 years ago, they even killed off the PHRF fleet entirely. The entry into IRC can be daunting for someone with a Catalina 30 who wants to participate in his home clubs regatta. This gives him a low entry point, more relaxed race, and they get to enjoy the party at the end of the day with everyone else. One day makes it easier to secure crew commitments and is a good start for many people. The W/L is not killed off. Yo
  2. I have a soft vang. I was going to replace with ridgid, but my boom has the IMS holes cut in the boom to make it lighter. I didn't want to bend the boom, so just went soft. How does the rigid boom make it bend more? Isn't it just a spring pushing the boom up so it doesn't sag down? If you remove the solid piece you still have a soft cascade providing all the power... Mainsheet pulls down and ridgid vang pushes up......what do you think is going to happen? You reduce the pressure on spring/air/etc... If you are pulling that much load against the vang ram, you are not getting enough lee

  4. Aww I see. you guys should come play with us in IRC2
  5. 515 why is it showing your rating to be higher for this regatta? Looks like you suddenly gained some speed...
  6. I think there are a bunch of guys sailing F18's out of EYC. They had a big championship last year, does that count?
  7. IRC NA's, IRC Canadians, 36.7 NA's, J24 Canadians, and Albacore worlds... There's a whole lot going on this summer.
  8. Zoom and Nortius around the mark, Zoom later retired, Notorius was first to finish at T1. Just wondering what the point of redress is. It's hard enough to get participation as it is without the course being fucked up. Here come race our fall series, we might not actually get a real race in, but feel free pay the entrance fee to come out and freeze your ass off. Fun ride down hill though, topped out 16.2 back to national.
  9. What are they going to give redress for? Does the race count in a series? Are they going to give average points? The fall LORC race series is suffering enough as it is, it will be interesting to see who does it again next year.
  10. Was out on maggie kelly ben 40.7 last sat. little light and then lightningy, so we called it. Couple clubs have thier tune up races this week, most clubs start next week.
  11. For those of you who are able to manage it, North Sails Canada has a new facebook page that is trying for more local news pics and interaction for all 3 lofts, Vancouver, Atlantic, and Toronto. Toronto team is going to be using it fairly actively so check it out for a lot of the LORC and other such toronto and lake ontario news stuff.
