I was simply going to ignore this... BUT

Pete... your lack of knowledge about the rules of the game are now legend...
Why?... not because you are new to the racing game... EVERYONE here would patiently explain the rule, the principals, the responsibilities involved, the sailing options and tactics that work in the situation, and answer all of your questions.

We even get that a new racer may not completely comprehend a new situation even after studying the rules a bit.

However, Time after Time you simply demonstrate Sheer IGNORANCE.. Followed up with the ARROGANCE that we should change over 100 years of history with the RRS .

Ignorance is a state of being uninformed (lack of knowledge)[1]. T

Arrogance: an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions.


Learn the damn rules or don't play the game.

You make these SNARKY comments, of well.... I will acknowledge Eric's judgement on the matter.... BUT.....

Now... you have gone beyond ignorant and arrogant into the blithering A hole status.

It's YOUR responsibility to RACE YOUR BOAT under the RRS. It has NOTHING to do with Eric's opinions.. It's your responsibility to understand the game... He has patiently tried to get you up to speed.

Oh for god's sake.... GE was WINDWARD on the same tack...

Guess I assumed that was the "remedy" you suggested...no wait, I didn't assume, you really DID suggest it. Maybe you've come up with something else since then that no one outside the class is privy to. As for the "or what?" Either I'll avoid you and protest if I'm on starboard, avoid you and sail on if I'm on port, or I won't be able to avoid you, there will be a collision, followed by a protest. Either way, foul me and I'll see you in the room. Don't take it personally Pete, just trying to clarify rights and responsiblities. I didn't actually mean "you and me."

You're right Mark, I misspoke. What I ahould have said was "if you are clear ahead and plan to tack in front of me, you'd better make sure you can make it (without fouling me).

I go to some length to avoid fouls, that's how I've managed to stay out of the room. I don't think I've ever been protested so my screw ups must have been relatively minor. I generally test whatever new "theory" I have in light air, so that helps!

You mentioned baseball. They're still using leather balls and wooden bats. I'm not a fan so I couldn't say whether that's good or bad. I am glad I don't have to deal with cotton sails, so put me down on the side favoring innovation and.....change.

wait... if I'm leeward, how is the windward boat going to tack across my bow? I'm having a hard time picturing that...
