It is all in jest.
I will admit to being beat around a race course by a Sunfish or 2. Just in front of where you've launched at the PC Regatta the committee set up a 150 yard WL. I took my daughter on the Hobie 16 as were was practicing for the 2005 JPOR. The same 3-5 wind. A fair start, no poor start, it's like tacking a dinosaur.
