Fast Laser is correct and is in a position to know, as am I. CYC has no obligation to stay with ORR, written or otherwise. There is never unanimity around rating rule selection and we have tried to run the race consistently and for what we think fairly handicaps the fleet that we have without relagating the old dogs to an uncompetitive status. We have also chosen to remove local political bias from the rating process, thus no PHRF. We don't not engineer the VPP. We do have a representative in the ORR committee and I am on the technical committee, we none of us controls the VPP. We care exclusively about the welfare of the race, not the welfare of the rule and at least up till now the ORR rule remains viable and growing, although slowly.I thought this was an anonymous forum? While the person making the statement may be Einsteins twin brother, my comment about CYC ever using a different rating rule for the Mac Race before ORR dies a slow death stands as written.You do realize who you are replying to, right?
You may want to recind the idiot thing.
