    It's a very old edit and it uploaded a bit wonky leaving out some audio, etc. I will have to dig up the original footage and do an edit someday:

    Of course they can do and go where they want but I guess I'll be labelled with a "close-minded mentality" since I find it in very bad form to create an event with the same format, time and now finish...

    The SSS hasn't given the Olson 30 a rating "break", ever. The SHTP has nothing to do with a 37sec/mile rating drop in a boats rating. The PHRF doesn't take into account these races. Your issue...

    So if your complaint the Olson 30 is unfairly rated you are wrong. They show up to SSS races (and crewed races) all the time and don't always do well, actually quite the opposite. Boats that rate...

    Well certainly the O30 has had more entries than most other boat designs. They certainly have not won every time they race. 2x were in the 2000 edition and they didn't fare to well.

    Outsider has always stayed on the floating HMBYC dock and she draws 7.2'. Only once did I find myself leaning a bit sideways for a few hours. Never been stuck when coming in or leaving.

    A boat with a heavier, shorter mast is not going to be faster. The Open 40 is worth $<50k. You would also never be able to sell it vs. the Class 40.

    I came in hot with the A2 doing 14k+ and then had the rude awakening of the barge anchored directly in the path. Very sketchy take-down but managed to not really shrimp or tear the spinnaker.
