Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

No cruising class boats registered so far. Slower than last year.

Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

Participation in all races appears to be very low compared to previous years.
Annapolis PHRF is way, way down.
Eastport to Solomons had 132 last year, we're at 65 this year.
Screwpile is also way down.

Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

Agreed. I'm hoping its just an off year and they'll be back next year. I haven't decided weather or not I want to race Audrey down there again. Gov Cup always seems to be a PITA for small light boats. I guess I'll wait until the extended forecast to come out first before writing the check. Always a crap shoot.

I'm actually thinking of trying to crew on one of the HHSA boats, if I can't get mine ready in time.

If I do mangage to get my crap in a sock, I'll be looking for crew if you want to try it on a 4kt shitbox.

Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

It might be a 4KSB, but I bet it has a head on board, and bunks you can sleep in.

Maybe I'm getting old, and just need to HTFU.

Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

We'll be doing the race this year. My understanding is that the tracker is required. Each skipper has a choice to get the Kattack unit or get the tracker app for thier own phone. They are also bringing back the after-race-dinner.

Anyone have a cruising spinnaker / Asym they can loan me?

Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

Maybe if PHRF Chesapeake had its act together and issued certificates on time people would be more inclined to participate. Still waiting for my certificate (53499) despite multiple contacts! I'll be crewing on another boat.
Anyone from PHRF Chesapeake listening?

Indeed, but we're two for two with unpleasant head incidents during the Gov Cup.

Well if you guys are gonna do it, I'll just have to HTFU and find a way to make it happen for Palmetto Moon also.

Re: the tracker units, reading the SI's it looks like you are correct that we have to buy the App and use it during the race. Based on what they posted on Facebook when I griped about the tracker situation it sounded like Kattack had changed their business and just flat didn't have the units anymore. The sailing instructions say trackers "as supplied" are required. I suppose lowering the entry fee and requiring us to buy an App equates to "supplying" the tracker.

Re: SMCM Governor's Cup

hmmm > not happy about that...

GPS Tracking: GPS tracking units as supplied by the racing authority are required to be on board and activated. As per RRS 41 c) use and monitoring of the Kattack GPS tracking units by competitors while racing the 2013 Governor's Cup is approved.

Out of pocket expense does not mean "as supplied by the RA". I still believe you can compete w/o using the tracker, but would send an email to confirm.
