Current State of Sailboat Racing is Pretty Bad
I''m prepared to be tied to a stake and burned for stiring up a little controversy...
"The general state of club level racing is pathetic. Sure there are some good, tight fleets, but I''ve seen too many skippers starting at the wrong end of a starting line on the unfavored tack. I port tack start these cream puffs all the time. If most skippers are having trouble with this Racing 101 problem, how can they be expected to know the more technical aspects of the sport. Why are most racers so bad?"
Okay. I''m ready. Take your best shot!
