Actually I have no problem with sarcasm (as you might guess) - but you have to admit, you baited the dude...and got personal before he did (do you guys have some history in the political threads?). So don't be surprised at strong reactions or even four letter words. You just got what you were looking for. (I know, I used to play a Troll on Broadway - and AS).
Also, love your point about the hypocrisy of sailors calling out others with different approaches. It was the basis of my FC/AFOC flourishes for years. So you're right on.
However, again, in this case...you're not making sense. The USCG is already
a critical part of this activity. Organized races have to be coordinated with them (and permitted by them) - for very good reasons. They help ensure it's a safe event for ALL the traffic out there on the water (obviously without too much interference by insisting on rule minutiae for the actual race, leaving that up to the OA) - THEN they freely provide the back-up we've just seen when people get caught. Furthermore, caught doing something that appears might be a more widespread practice of questionable safety than just this one incident. That's actually some very reasonable "government interference".
So your cry of "Freedom" is just a bit silly...and potentially hypocritical if, God forbid, you ever have the need of rescue.
The CG is doing the right thing. And now it's the OA's and racing community's turn to do the right thing and work to make the race safer.
It really doesn't need to be any more Orwellian than that.
