    I'm told that's pretty close but the details are fuzzy.

    Here's a funny bit from the RRS


    "...the protest committee is never a party."

    DaveH, are you still in Saudi Arabia? Rick, is it fair to play the game from another country? aren't there rules about foreign competition? Isn't that outside assistance?

    B is a protest flag, A means diver down. Oops, maybe I count as an old timer.

    Using those definitions, B is the Powder flag. (The R/C had to start with C because they were taking a powder when A and B should have started.) And we should all be flying D.

    I bought a set of code flags at my favorite retail store because the bag was ripped and it was half-off. It's fun using them to "dress ship" for some events.

    So Bob, that's what was missing for the cruise to Redwood City. Your weren't really quite into cruise mode. You needed the flags! Or at least, you needed to "dress ship" when you got to the Sequoia YC. I wish you had, because I might have been reminded to breakout mine, that have never been out of the bag. A missed opportunity.... Next time?
