    ALPHABET SOUP OR HOW I HAVE COME TO APPRECIATE PHRF By Dr. Thompson and R. Steadman esq. Anyone who has had the pleasure to race sailboats has also been subject to a cycle of promise eroding to disappointment or outright disdain for a plethora of rating rules. Those of us having been...

    YRALIS PHRF minutes

    It's the same three or four voices out of 1000 members throwing sand in their sandbox-same voices for all the years here on SA and same little backwater bay been shit-stirring for decades. Once mildly amusing but now perceived by most as being out of touch and nattering nabobs of negativism...

    YRALIS PHRF minutes

    Not sure why there is this gross misconception that the YRALIS PHRF Committee members are non-racers-a few folks on here seem to think that their little bay or harbor is the cynosure of Long Island Sound racing-I beg to differ-the purview of the YRALIS extends from New York Harbor, part way up...

    Butch Trucks DTS

    Just watched the Dan Rather Big Interview last night with Greg....who, remarkably, got sober and clean twenty years ago and is in great shape. Seminal American band-Watkins Glen, Allmans, Band, Dead,,,,possibly music Nirvana, but there were too many damn people to really enjoy it!

    A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma......

    Lol, that is some convoluted something there, not sure I follow the who was subject to what rule when, but bottom line, it all started in the swamps of EBYRA and one can only hope that it slinks back into the muck and disappears. Looking forward to taking applications for the new Rule 92...
