WOW!! it was a question just to clarify my thoughts about a daysail I had... and it started all this.
My feeling is that racers a non-racers ara whole worlds appart.
For instance I race my little 14" flying Tern, and since no PHRF is on effect in my lake, I do daysail my Merit. My wife says that I'm a different person while onboard the Tern.
I think the root problems is that steering a boat, taking it from A to B, not necessarily means that instruction or training has been taken.
I foudn a lack of this knowledge down here, and my point was that Port Authority must enforce this information to everyone on the lake dirving some kind of water craft.
Other than this, an interesting thread...
Thanks all for your input
