    Default SSS Corinthian 2018

    Good day,
    I signed up for this event but I couldn't find the SI on Jibeset. Did I miss them?
    Thanks in advance.

    Usually it is closer to the skippers meeting before the SI's are posted.

    I sent in my PHRF application yesterday. Hopefully it comes back in time.

    That's the most confusing starring instructions I've ever seen! I suggest a 2nd radio channel to handle the call ins asking "When's my start." Why try to invent a new wheel when the perfectly round one has been working for years?

    Caaaareful now. Remember that this is a volunteer position and our new race chair is the new guy. He doesn't know what chaos looks like yet. He thinks he does because he ran the Fiasco. But only four boats finished during the Fiasco. Wait until Saturday night. Then we can debate all the things he should have done to benefit each of us personally. For the time being, I'm going to be reeeeal nice to him.

    Jim, can I buy you a beer after the race Saturday night? Dura Mater and I will be coming in waaaay after the multi hulls. See you then. Jackie

    The RC did reach out to many to ask for opinions...... I was in the camp of "if it has worked for all these years and our numbers are the highest they have ever been why change the working formula?". The start time should not be changed unless a freighter decides to go through Raccoon Straight.

    Jim wanted to set up the printed start times to allow for a postponement. I did the same thing when I was race chair - I worded it differently but with the same intent.

    These will be large divisions, and with the (often) light air we get off the CYC, the starting line can be mostly blocked off by divisions starting ahead of you. We've also had boats catch the pin, blocking it and moving it around.

    I suggest racers review the timing sequence for a postponement and be prepared. I've also encouraged Jim to keep us informed via VHF if there's a need to postpone.

    The RRS have it all. Postponements happen all the time (try this weekend's CYC MidWins for instance). Following the RRS procedures makes for uniform practice. Yes, slow starts, catching the pin, waiting for wind, mistakes by someone raising the wrong flag, they all happen. And, they all can be "corrected" using the RRS. Racers should know the rules. That's all.,
