Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

Has any rally negativity stopped anyone from participating in, Rallies? I do see the SDR has grown exponentially in just 3 years. That looks like a vote for that type of less stringent rally, and that they are gaining in popularity.

I see the problems that Rally-negs dwell on('herding'), but in Rally's-vs- Solo boats, does anyone know if these problems are more common on a per boat basis in Rally-vs-solo boats?

Or is just that you get the condensed version of 100 boats sailing at the same time, vs 100 boats sailing at 100 different times.

It seems all the boats and crews that set out to sea are completely different from each other. Articles like Harries try to put them all in one box.

No offense to Rally-negs(and Smackdaddy, the OP), but, have Rally's,...gone wrong?
