Dumptruck and Shitbox

Just got emailed some more drama:
Alan,

 

As of Tuesday, I have received 5 complaints regarding the actions of your

chartered boat Relentless. While some of the maneuvering appears to breach

common courtesy between photo/video boats and poor seamanship, the most

recent actions on Division 2 could have impacted the racing. This is

unacceptable. Not adhering to race officials instructions and making obscene

gestures cannot be tolerated. It can result in a safety issue and could

impact the racing.

 

I ask for your assurance that your boat operator will adhere to the

direction of any race committee personnel on the water going forward.

 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation,

 

Peter

I am the one instructing the driver of our chartered fishing boat on where to put the thing. The driver is a fishing guy and knows absolutely nothing about sailing. I have to tell him everything. Yesterday was totally flawless. Today during some confusion and loss of contact via radio with RC combine with my lack of reading the SI's for the division, I put the boat in a bad spot. I take total blame for this one and I'm sorry to the 3 boats that might have had a slight wind shadow for a very very short time. It will not happen again. Any of you do have a problem with where the OTW Anarchy boat is, come to me. I'll buy ya a drink at the tent. ;)

Vincenzo Onorato loves us. And wants to sail for the Anarchy Challenge. Listen:

VO is the anti Bertarelli & Ellison. Very cool to see that a guy with in that position is so down to earth. Perhaps if there were more of him and less of the others, the AC wouldn't be an ego fueled train wreck.

With the breeze out of the NE, this Division is the only one that's out of the lee of KW. Little boats get big waves today...20 knots solid, 3-5 foot seas.

Seefest the J-29 should like that 20 knots and 3-5 ft waves is what he kicked my ass in at BBR last year.
Getting beat by an O'Day 40 twice yesterday makes me think they've got other problems.

People so underestimate that O'day 40. Dont knock it until you sailed it. Yes it is a pig but it has a great rating and it has wheels. It likes heavy air flat water or no air at all, in between not so good but can do well. I've been on that boat in Tampa Bay in a no air regatta racing in B class and passed all A class boats boat for boat who started 5 mins in front of us. MO has suprised many people.
Underestimate? The boats rating went from 123 to 135 in an appeal. The guy was cheating taking a 6 sec roller furler credit and not using the roller furler but tacking the full size genoa to the deck and directly to the halyard. the boat is rated for the short rig but has the tall rig booms on it. Did alot of research on the boat while down there and we think he pulled a fast one one the PHRF cortsortuim which doesn't surprise me.

Kinda like the balanced rudder he put on his J/29 a few years back and said he didn't know the boatyard did that?????

Thanks to all on Division 3. It was a long week for me - blogging, start photos, finishes, uploading, and holding on in rocky weather. You only saw me a couple of times at the tent and only once at Capt'n Tony's. In case you missed it when it was happening, photos were being uploaded after the starts and finishes. They can be found here:

The mark boats got better every day sending down the boats that rounded. Considering they were checking wind, writing down all boats rounding, keeping clear of boats, changing courses, taking photos, and bouncing around in little boats, they did a great job helping add some more information.

Keep in mind that the time deltas that Clean posted for finishes were approximations. Doing a compare between the real finish times and his were kinda close enough for the big wins, but considering there were multiple races with 1 to 2 second wins after correction, it is not quite the same.

I enjoyed talking with our sponsors and doing my little advertising blibs, though I notice that JItilIDie appeared to forget to post those. :D

I know PHRF-land seems boring to watch, but I like seeing boats worry about every second and every tack even though they appear to be sailing alone. I noticed that Wairere did better when XS was on the course. To me, it showed that leading and making choices alone is tougher than watching the faster boat make the choices first and getting to make a different one. Or that having someone to chase gets you pumped up more. I enjoyed getting to know the variety of boats and the difference in personality each had, due to its type, its advantages, its disadvantages, and its crew. I have seen and scored multiple of these boats before and it is interesting to me to see their "personality" change for different regattas.

I also enjoyed seeing Rumor get boat of the day and Primal Scream (PHRF-1) get boat of the week. And even though some of the results don't show it, all of the classes were very competitive fighting for the starts and working hard to deal with the shifts. It was a lot of fun to watch!

Thanks to all!
