    I do too..... but those boats should not be racing against boats that use manual power. Transpac has a first to finish (nearly always a power assist vessel) and the handicap Barn Door for manual...

    I agree, just not for the race track. How is it fair that someone gets to short-tack up the city front and be totally fresh for a spinnaker hoist at the weather mark while you can barely get the...

    That is exactly what I wanted to find out.

    Not a target at all as I totally forgot you even had them. This was brought to a head in my mind by the "fully" automated powered operation of a boat...
  4. Power-Assisted Sailing - the Slippery Slope

    This thread is to put out information to the SSS members about a slippery slope that in my opinion has now become an edge of a cliff.

    This has to do with one of the US Sailing rules which is:

    And drop the Overall Trophy for the RTR? Put no one on the trophy even though we are having a race? It's an easy fix.

    There is that..... and this races overall trophy. I also see Express SH & DH together.

    Hmmm. I thought all the Singlehanders would be on one course and Doublehanders on another. The way this is setup doesn't allow for an overall Singlehanded or Doublehanded Race Trophy or season...

    Deployment and cavitation seem to be the concern. Outboard running gas in an outboard well is VERY dangerous. A fan needs to be run to evacuate the fumes to prevent an explosion. The Hobie 33,...

    Also remember that there will be few of the usual doublehanded fleet that will be able to race with their regular crew unless they live together. So I imagine there will be a bunch more...

    I guess if you enter as doublehanded but it seems the singlehanders will be sailing a different course.

    Haven't seen a dual battery MPPT solar controller from the usual brands. Usually people get two controllers or since they will be in roughly the same location you could get away with one but lose a...

    Thanks to the board for keep pressing during these challenging times. Cheers.

    That hoist will be ready for you maybe in 2-3 years, if ever. You might max out the length at Brickyard Cove but that's the ONLY 4500lbs hoist left for public use in NorCal.

    I heard there was a meeting tonight..... from others. I never got a notice, there was no notice on how to join the meeting on the main website, forum or jibeset. I'm glad to find out that...

    Now the skippers meeting is "mandatory"??? What about those that don't have or use Zoom. If you are going to make it mandatory use a voice conference so people can call in and don't have to...

    Less than ONE WEEK NOTICE (no email notice to racers yet) is simply not enough time for most to plan, prep or change their schedule and yet it's still only a maybe?? And another race within 2 weeks...

    Just drove across town and there are huge crowds everywhere, long lines, no social distancing, very few masks. I can shop at stores, grocery, drug, buy cars, get my hair cut, etc. I simply don't...

    Thanks for the effort. Super frustrating as the SSS (at least for a Singlehanded ONLY race) should be the first be able to get a permit as there are NO social distancing issues. So the USCG...
