I am just posting this to support the local races... i am pretty sure this informal NOR does not contain all the elements.. but this is how they do it here. I am not racing, nor part of it in any way.. just trying to spread the word.


Merry Christmas to all from Tampa Bay Catamarans. See you at the Hangover. The fee for this regatta will be in line with everyone's economic stimulus plan...
ie $5 ($10-non-members) - so no frills!!

My Dunedin winter gear for the last 10 years is a windbreaker jacket and a wool hat. You wussy-boy!

Weather looking a bit grim...

"Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm before 1pm, then scattered showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 64. North northwest wind 7 to 10 mph increasing to between 15 and 18 mph. Winds could gust as high as 25 mph. "

Water temp is 61. Realtime on the water weather conditions at

Wish I were in Florida right about now...

This is sort of rhetorical, since you're not the OA, but why would they use the 2004 rules in 2010? Maybe they just got too lazy to update that line on the invite?

OK, almost time to start drinking... Happy New Year!!! smile

As simple as this is, it does comply with RRS Appendix J:
Quote
J1 NOTICE OF RACE CONTENTS
J1.1 The notice of race shall include the following information:
(1) the title, place and dates of the race and name of the organizing
authority;
(2) that the race will be governed by the rules as defined in The
Racing Rules of Sailing;
(3) a list of any other documents that will govern the event (for
example, The Equipment Rules of Sailing, to the extent that
they apply), stating where or how each document or a copy of
it may be seen;
(4) the classes to race, any handicap or rating system that will be
used and the classes to which it will apply, conditions of entry
and any restrictions on entries;
(5) the times of registration and warning signals for the practice
race, if one is scheduled, and the first race, and succeeding
races if known.


Nice job! (Although they really should update the RRS reference to 2009-2012.)

I hear they have a sharp temper and short fuse (letter opener to the neck?)... Or is that the Romanians...

Haha, she has put up with me for almost a year, (meaning she has a ton of patience), but she can yell up a storm when she wants to

That was a fun race a couple years ago.. wish we could do it again but unfortunately I am not down there this time.
Learned my lesson never to go distance sailing without a GPS from that!

Truly an incredible day! Perhaps we should have known better since big air was predicted, although not the 40s. You can see from the graph that the wind was over 20 all day and by the time we turned for the 8 mile beat home the gusts were up to 40+. The air was 75 degrees, and the water in the upper 60s. The waves were 3-5 ft and directly on the nose, huge white caps with blinding spray. Solo on the wire on my Nacra 5.0, I went up the steep face of the third wave in a 5 foot set when a HUGE gust got under my bows and I did vertical reverse capsize, bows completely vertical, landing upside down and stabbing my mast into the just-too-shallow water. When I got back aboard to right the boat I scanned the horizon and could see four other boats over. Outside me by a mile I could see Jack Woehrle's Hobie 20 with a broken mast. That was one monster gust!

The stories of many rescues and the long, long trip home I'll leave for others to tell.
Right now I'd like to cheer the heroic efforts of Bob Barton and his daughter for spending hours in his chase boat scooping up swimmers and towing boats to shore in really terrible conditions. The situation could have been tragic without him. EVERYONE thanks you, Bob.

The REAL question is why those spineless F-18 guys (Ding) wimped out of the race at the start. grin

Seemed like a good idea at the time. If I could have only known what an adventure it would have have been I might have reconsidered.

Glad you guys are all accounted for and safe. Just in case you missed it, the Colts beat the Jets and the Saints beat the Vikings.

Your decision NOT to sail was the right one.

You probably would have done fine. Most of the bigger boats/crews did all right but the lighter ones just couldn't deal with beating to weather in those waves when the wind got over 30. Solo, I just did not have enough inertia to punch through the froth nor weight to hold the bows down in the gusts.

Still, a good time was had by all. Stories to tell for years to come! grin
