Race Day 1

I just got a good report on the last J/24 start on the harbor course. It was an awesome start - the current was flooding hard, and the RC had an I-flag up. The wind picked up, and eight j/24s were over early. And as they waited for a General Recall...but wait, no general! All eight had to go back around the pin and re-start.
I flags and J24s ... ahh shucks - doesn't that just hold a special place in your heart ... :lol: :lol: ;)

Clean, I have a question about the J24s. You had 3145 way out in front in one of the races, checked results and there is no 3145. What's up with that?

Looks like another good day for Dan Borrer and team Jesus Lizard.

Dan kicked some ass despite having to take a 20% penalty - and Jesus Lizard is using Will Welles' old sails, so that's the discrepancy. I'm starting the Day 2 thread right now - it's calm as hell. According to Category 5, it's the calm before the serious storm tomorrow. We're out on the big boat course under postponement.

Thanks Clean and great job. You doing the J24 Nationals next week?

 
SOMEBODY needs to clean his facking sensor on that camera.

What should we use to clean it, BJ?
50-50 Mix of Bleach and Amonia

 

apply with a Steel-Wool swab

 

 

wipe away residew with

 

MEK on a piece of SunBrella

 

 

Fill with WD-40

 

before replacing Glass

 

For moisture resistance

 

 

Shake camera often

 

That should pretty much

 

take care of any camera problems

I said that because

If I told you to use a "Rocket"

You would think I was Facking with ya !!!!!

BEST Advice:

 

DO NOT Borrow Glass !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

You have no idea how to treat Glass

 

Till You Pay for the Glass

 

If You can't Pay for the Glass

 

You Shouldn't Use it

 

 

A small ding or scratch or pit on the Glass

 

to the person who did it is minor

 

 

As you hand it back to the owner

 

They WILL BE BUMMED

 

ANY DAMAGE - Lens should be Replaced !!!!!

 

Get and Use

 

"ONLY"

 

Glass that will be yours if you hurt it

 

If you Must

 

Go Rent from a Shop

 

At least you won't loose a Friend

 

And the Shop won't loose a Lens

melges' are back up, with a litttle shake up at the top1) 450 - Spray, Lucas, just had a terrible hoist but they're in first,

2) Blur, Steve Kopf in second

3) Brilliant - Blank

The J/80's are mixed in here, with Outrageous in first, and with 829 and 840

Next Melges is

4) 136

5) 626 - Wireless

6) Team Gill

7) 274 Big Sky

8) 245 Riot Act

9) Fu is holding hard

10) 687 Fire Water

The rest of the J/80s are here, Angry Chameleon, then 173. Then the S2 7.9 is coming around too. It's sort of silly that the Melges are racing with these slow boats, but certainly make it more fun...
So how come when those "slow boats" started with the J/80's the 7.9's were first to the mark?
