Okay, I know my spin-brella looks silly and isn't "class legal", but I've been using it during club races anyway, since I'm usually the only Portsmouth boat on the race course. Yesterday however, there were 4 other boats (Melges 17's) which raced under the Portsmouth flag.

Well I knew they beat me, but I just wondered what the "corrected" comparison was, but was told that they didn't keep track of me, since I was DSQ'd for my illegal sail. Is that right? I don't know what the Portsmouth factor would be for a beach umbrella, but is it up to the scorers to enforce class rules in a Portsmouth race?

You would have to be protested by another boat and have a proper hearing to be disqualified.

I think that is a pretty unfriendly thing for them to do. It would probably be a good thing to take a spinnaker correction next time, just so there are no hard feelings. Your umbrella certainly isn't as effective as a proper spinny.

Mine is named "Humuhumunukunukuapua'a" but I haven't gotten it put on the boat yet. My plan is to get the lettering done by a sign shop to fit the curved stripes from the bow toward the stern. Then maybe add a picture of the fish behind it.

If you have one of those "instant sign" shops around (or find one on the internet), they should be able to do anything in any size you want, as a vinyl sheet. Go for it!

I have a T-shirt I bought in Kapa'a with the fish on it, that says "Humuhumu-yada-yada-blah-blah-whatever!" but nobody in Indiana understands it.
