Go ahead and set up a 2.5nm course and lap it. Send me the coords when you have it ready and I'll check 'em.
Hey, great! My thanks to you and bubblehead.

I was going to go out today but the forecast looks like 0 to 3 mph, I don't think I've got the stomach for drifting around in that right now. It would be okay if not for the damn wakeboarders... but I digress.

So, back to that rating thing, 240 would make me just a smidge into your class D but it is a 21' cruiser/racer and you have those 22' and under classes as well... what gives there?

I'll have fun with this no matter what, but I'm wondering if I am going to get hammered if I wind up in that class D with all the truly fast boats.

Right on.

As for the rating, it's your call where you want to put your boat. The reason I put in the sub-22' class is purely waterline.

If I were you, I'd snag SMCruiser class and rule it while you can.

I can't find your email address anywhere. Here is a kmz, is that the sort of thing you are after?

What's the PHRF splits? On your site? I may have a go at this, but would need to borrow a GPS.

Yeah zz, the splits (divisions) are on the site HERE.

According to the PHRF doc we're using (Northern Cal) - your merit 25 would be a 168 (no cb) or 219 (cb). This would put you in SailC or SailD respectively.

Check out the site - get me a course for Leesburg and let's race!

C fleet

Suck it up ZZ, you're in C fleet with me!
Ah...and my new fastest time is just under 55 minutes...(but forgot my GPS, so it does not count). With the right wind, I think I can get it down to just over 45min.

I just smack-talked Kriz over as SA - but jeez, dude, if you throw down 55, I'm going to have to get serious!

I've learned that the course I laid out for Lake Travis is only fast in the spring and fall (with easterlies and westerlies). Our southerly winds in the summer are a ball buster. Maybe I should have thought about that one.

Can I use my current PHRF certificate for the Ches Bay?
