    The formula on the SSI's show:

    With not much other racing going on, I'm sure crews are begging their skippers to race doublehanded.... Of course, they must already be in their household/bubble...

    Thanks Jim, I guess it is the law of unintended consequences....

    As someone who has been 'excluded' by rules for certain events, I'm not a fan of legislating boats out of competition. If there is...

    Bob, that is not quite right. PHRF doesn't rate for shorthanded advantage. As I mentioned in my other comment, an IRC class might be the ticket as it considers both stored power assistance and...

    It would be great to learn the history of the introduction 1.c.iii to our SSIs. 1.c.i and 1.c.ii are very narrow in their exclusions, and iii comes along and blows up rule 52. From looking at...

    That really sucks. That is the part that bugs me the most, is how some folks just don't take responsibility. Even after winning protests and appeals after I was rammed by another competitor a few...

    I don't have a big disagreement here, but the rules are there to make racing possible. If we don't follow the rules and use protests to enforce them, it would be chaos out there. You can certainly...

    It's easy to jump into the single vs double handed tension. I don't think that is the right approach. Everyone needs to give a bit more room for 'shorthanded' races, particularly across divisions...

    I do miss battling the two Yankees, Chelonia and Emerald, on Travieso. I learned a ton of racing on the Bay trying to beat those two boats.
