Re: Trying to hit a moving mark

I like the name of the boat if nothing else!

Nor really much you cn do other than get around said mark.......

I had a start finish mark get loose, one fellow picked it up on the way in, and TOOK IT IN! after I asked him to reset. I knew where the line was supposed to be, so finished folks on that line........blinken pos danforth anchors.................will not even reset with a slight current change and a bouy!

Yeah probably, but I like the guys I race with so it's all good.

Well Paul....you're racing with the wrong YC.

I'm not a member at the YC, just one of those scummy commoners that come out on a Wednesday, so frankly I'd laugh my rear off if the pup had done that.
As for the boat, we race on a knackered old J24 called Road Kill. Good fun.

As for the puppy, it was his first time there, just a stuffy club rule, no dogs allowed. Miserable sods.
Bummer, I was sure he got drunk and plopped a steamer on the Commodore's Oyster.

Sods is right!

Re: Trying to hit a moving mark

tell the RC to attach a length of heavy chain to the bottom of the mark and then the anchor line so it will not be easy to snag

Do tell...what was the name?

As for the dog; unfortunately there are so many irresponsible dog owners out there that they assume the worst. Nobody wants dog crap on their deck shoes, nor do they want it tracked into the club house!

Re: Trying to hit a moving mark

Yeah boats can file for redress but not likely for beercan racing. It is just one of those things you deal with in casual racing.

Just remember to give the gears to the guy who dragged the mark, as well as the mark boat that set it with too much scope so it could get hooked!

Re: Trying to hit a moving mark

The rules allow a boat harmed in this way to file for redress on the basis of the altered course.

There are a number of ways a RC could adjust the results to try and fix this. In a serious regatta (worlds, nationals, ect). They would likely toss the race, but for beer can stuff who knows.
