dnf because of county police boat?
We raced last Sunday on the Hudson near the Tappan Zee.
One of the PHRF racing fleet was stopped by a Westchester county police boat.
I was not nearby when the sailboat was "pulled over" so I am not sure what prompted them to do so.
End result: stopped boat received a dnf for the race and a citation for "improper speed". WTF? Improper speed?
I guess all their flares were not expired and their pollution placards were in place, but "improper speed"? On a 30+ foot sailboat? Really?
If I find out more details I will post but at first blush this seems like the LEO's were having fun harassing these sailors, nothing more.
