    I'd foreseen the coming cluster at SHS, and jibed well to the east, accepting the I might loose places to single handers that might emerge from the scrum unscathed, and ahead. Acceptance of the present allowances a single-hander needs to make in these two races in particular (Corinthian, RTR) gets me around the course safely, but I think things can be improved.

    As in any all volunteer organization, brilliant solutions (if any are available) are useless until someone steps-up and put it into action. I don't know what the right solution is, but Joe, Tom get in touch if there are tasks that need to be done to enact a solution.

    I agree and float the following:
    TBF SH/DH the whole idea is a Fiasco
    Corinthian SH only
    RTR SH only
    Drakes Bay with YRA SSS SH only DH reg in YRA
    Half Moon Bay would like another SH only but with the open course could go DH
    Vallejo 1-2 speaks for it self
    Just my two cents.

    It's now Monday. The race was Saturday. I've now talked to two people, boaters who are longtime friends and oft-times participants in the SSS who have heard about the park-up at Southampton this weekend. Both of them expressed the opinion that the SSS needs to address this issue or it's going to lose members. I know that the Board is aware of it, but spacing out DH and SH competitors just needs one big parking lot on the course to foul up every wisely-planned starting sequence.

    Whatever gets done...is fine.

    We can send DH and SH boats on different courses.
    We can have SH and DH race on different days.
    We can disallow DH one-design classes.

    Whatever y'all decide. But this weekends parking lot at SH demonstrated that even the best planned starting sequences don't always work out.
