    Keep CHRF fun for all and casual. You want multiple, tightly defined and policed rules, too many protests (many of which are frivolous), arguments on the dock, overblown egos and budgets beyond the reach of many, jump up a level or two and hit the racing circuit beyond Santa Barbara. Rarely a...

    105 N.A.s are over for 2010. Interesting event with a myriad of conditions and challenging racing. Huge thanks to the Chicago Yacht Club, Columbia Yacht Club, J/105 Fleet 5 and the RC team. Excellent event, good racing, super parties and very warm and friendly people. We had a terrific time...

    Don't know the results either. Was a very different day. Mid 70s and 10 - 13 all day. Racing was supposed to begin at 10:30 but delayed until about 12:30 due to lack of wind. Took a 5th in the first race and were deep in the second. Not sure where but it was a tough one. The RC is setting 2...

    Crazy day on the water (more pix up on my Picasa account Click). Forecasts came true - we had over 30 before the first start and 20 - 25 for the first race. Second race (which was abandoned by RC just as we were getting to the weather mark) had us in 17 - 20 most of the way and the third race...

    1. We've been called into the Room several times. But our usual response is to forfeit. It really means little to argue for way too many hours, miss dinner (and drinks) and still come away dissatisfied. 2. For Long Beach I'm not sure about seeking redress. It'll probably hinge on whether or not...

    We'll thrash it out a bit and keep the posts going. However, time will get a bit tight as we're taking R&R to Chicago for the North Americans on the Lake. Boat gets hauled tomorrow and leaves here on the 30th, Bernie and I set things up on 9/9 and we race 9/13 - 9/19. Gonna be a lot of...

    How does being hauled into a protest you knew almost nothing about, being exonerated from blame (because you hadn't been notified of the protest) and then subsequently being DSQ'd by the Protest Committee sound? I know there's always more to it than one boat's view but the incident took place...

    Nice shots Janers. We finished the first race hitting over 15. Is that the shot of us under spinnaker? Thanks to you and the other RC crew for giving us a great day yesterday. Fun racing. T

    Did you mean the Merka's Cup involving Merkins? Maybe this will help clear things up: Merkin Perhaps he's had one too many hack saw incidents of late and is having finger problems?

    Not about boat attendance. It's about saying one thing and doing another. It changed the way competition took place on the water when there was no need to do so.

    And don't even think about using something as rude or criminally suggestive as Repeat Offender - in Newport they'd no doubt meet you at the dock with Skean Dhus drawn and escort you out of town.
