Good ideas - keep them coming...

Here's what I'm thinking for course. There will be three; short, medium, and long to try to accommodate the various bodies of water. The idea is to make it something that anyone can go out and do on a day sail. That way more people will participate. Here are the course lengths:

Short: 2.5NM
Medium: 5NM
Long: 10NM

As an example, the Three Bridge Fiasco is 21NM. So this seems like a pretty good distance. Speak up if you disagree.

So, go ahead and layout your course for your body of water. The easiest way to do it is with Google Earth. Use the ruler function and lay it out in NM. Then when it's there, trace over that with the Add Path function. If you can't figure that out, just send me the coordinates of your marks and I'll do it for you.

And TD, cheat at your own peril, my friend.
