NARC Rules and Regulations
The rally is open to any professional delivery or nfull time crew.
The rally is open to any seaworhty boat with an experienced skipper with a good crew.
Amatuer sailors should contact Hank to see if they qualify.
After last year we are recommending smaller boats with less experienced crew to head down to the Chesapeake Bay to depart with the caribbean 1500.
Again, if you don't like Hank's approach - take it up with him. But at least be honest about what's there.
If you were being honest about what's there, you'd admit that Hank's "Bar for Entry" to the NARC is even MORE
ambiguous and loosely defined than those for either the SDR, or the Caribbean 1500...
Help us out here... Precisely what does he mean by "experienced skipper", or "a good crew", or "smaller", or "less experienced"?
You know, so we know EXACTLY
how much higher the SDR needs to raise their bar, to achieve your "simple fix"... :-)
