I belong to a group of boat owners that have gotten together for the past 40 years to race their boats in a informal manner. We are focused on having fun more than competing.
Having said that we are still out there racing and making the club what it is.
Even though the main goal is to have fun, we all expect competitive fairness.
We had a Regatta this weekend and a fellow saw our advertisments up around town. He came down to our skippers meeting and registered his Catalina 27 with a spinnaker
and an o/b, and raced his boat.
He claimed a 225 rating.
This rating put him in Div. II with boats rated from 175-250 and with us a C&C 32 with a 195 rating.
This Catalina left Division II in the dust. His corrected time place him 3rd and 4th in Division I. Thats up with the Tartan 4000's, C&C 35's and Flying Tiger's. wtf
I have emailed our R/C, no reply yet.
