Re: Just for kicks and grins...

I actually like the fixed "Jokers Wild" starting line idea.
I suppose you always use the same marks then?
Or do they sometimes use a mark up the mouth of the Rhode River?
I watched a Sunday race from the West River group while anchored in the Rhode once.
Beautiful area but definitely shallow and that bump is always possible.

It is nice to be able to visualize your track on the chart and figure out the
"good, bad and the ugly" as a race postmortem procedure.
We usually do this without the aid of such a nicely laid out chart.
