Re: Cheap Classic Plastic smokes the fleet in 2013 Down the Bay Race
126 seems like a brutal rating for that boat. Did the owner run over the handicappers dog or something?
We race Portsmouth here. All ratings systems suck, you can't take it too seriously. It gives you a chance to have fun sailing against non-identical boats. Without it, all I could do is match race the same guy all year long, and that would get boring pretty quick.
Not a problem, racing a 20k pound center cockpit around a couple buoys on a river is just not my style. I'd rather go out and watch the other folks collide and fight for a 9 dollar trophy.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
