it's a joke son....Cristoforo said:Well if there is a guy who doesn’t know rules and the law, that’s him. But I think he claimed it was just a practice sail.
Same boat ripped out all the doors, cabinetry, stove, toilet
Not all areas have min 3 sec hits. Locally, we have sail area adjustments in 3 sec increments. Other adjustments can be as little as 1 second. i.e. a local Dash has a 1 sec adj for an open transom - not sure why other than just to do something. Apparently the conversion actually added a bit of weight.Cristoforo said:Also having a minimum 3 point adjustment is stupid. Why not 1 or 2 or 4 or 5 points? 3 points is 10% on a J111 versus 3 pct on a shitbox they are racing against
we had two requests for protests and asking for a physical measurement of 2 competitor boats sail dimensions. . Both protests were asked for by members of the area PHRF Comm against boats they raced and lost against the weekend before. With no basis other than a hunch the sails were too big. You can't make this stuff up. Thats the best advertisement for ORR.

Thanks for the explanation.Crew substantially outside the lifelines, using the standing rigging for support.
I would guess they are getting ready either to gybe the spinnaker or take it down. If a takedown, the jib is not up yet so flying the guy (using the the human body as a spinnaker pole to get a few more moments of power out of the spinnaker) is really really premature.
The best cheat I personally have indulged in was taking the screws out of a competitors rudder, after he ran us down on the race course not once but twice then lied his ass off in a protest hearing. My wife was crewing with me and she dissuaded me from taking more strong and direct steps. In a way, this was better because it fucked him over for the whole travel series. >25 years ago so now I can tell it.....
I believe the 3 sec thing was derived from the old phrf handicaps based on minutes/mile rather than sec/mile. PHRF handicap increments were .05 min/mile or 3 sec/mile. For example my old HF 27 was 2.25 but when they went with sec/mile, it became 135Cristoforo said:We tried to get 1 second increments but apparently it’s written in the Old Testament somewhere we could not. Sometimes Change is hard for people who have been running a PHRF committee for 35 years and don’t race.

Practicing what, exactly? <_<Cristoforo said:But I think he claimed it was just a practice sail.
