Nope. The proposed rule is for vessel over 35’, so pretty much any offshore racing boat, almost every east coast port is included from 1 Nov - 30 Apr.
The current rule applies to vessels >65’, which I would think the Imocas exceed, with their bowsprit. As long as they don’t get to Newport...
Everyone’s blaming the United States’ poor Olympic results on funding, or USS leadership, coach boats,etc….
What if we just don’t have very good sailors? Here, its mostly the rich kids who sail. Might not be the best gene pool.
Haha, loving these posts by ”totally not ficticious“ and “satisfied customers“.
This Brent guy even “reads people well” and “assured me my family will be safe”. Please come back and finish this amazing story when you are done gargling your own… I mean “Brent’s” balls.
USCG credentials aside… who ever refers to themselves as “Captain“ unless they are actively on a boat where they are employed as a skipper?
It’s just lame, and has that ”trying too hard to impress people who don’t sail” vibe.
Speaking of which, refers to himself as a “professional” sailor -...
No you dense fucking retard. The boat weighed MORE than it was supposed to (based on some older and outdated measurement).
So they REMOVED weight and had it it remeasured.
When you take a Med TP and set it up for offshore, it’s going to gain weight. My God you are a dumb little twat.
This thread more and more convinces me that the majority of people are retards.
The fucking boat was measured. The sails were recut smaller and remeasured. The rating improved a tiny bit.
They won… big fucking deal. This is what winning teams do... they optimize to to the rating, there’s...
No, it was measured for ORC in 2019, and in Nov 2022, using boom incline method.
Y’all need to understand these measurements are not going to be 100% accurate, there’s a small margin of error. It is entrely plausible that between 2019 -2022, they added weight AND shaved the bulb, and the end...
Sorry, but where’s the evidence that anyone cheated? They weighed the boat, made some optimizations to bulb & sails, and improved their rating. This is what all the TPs do, big fucking deal.
if there’s a discrepancy with the new measured weight, it’s just as likely that the old weight was...
