I've got to get her to talk to my wife...you know, the one nobody's ever met, because she's never been to a regatta, let alone get out on a boat! "It's not safe! Those things flip over!"

I guess she's forgotten about how many times she's been tossed off a horse or nearly kicked in the head.

Ok Guys,

Having gone down to Annapolis to the US Sailing Meeting and sat in on the Multihull Meeting followed immediately w/ a "adhoc" meeting about the Olympic Multihull Boat Selection process .... there was something mentioned that was important ....

The Olympics Multihull Compitition will be geared to "World-Wide Competitors .... that means that a boat and crew-wieghts will be set that allow competitors from areas like Asia to be competitive w/ their smaller body size/physics. The rules for the event will not be written to favor the "europeans and Americans" w/ their larger body-sizes ... this is also one of the reasons that a "Tornado"/20ft Cat would not be selected ... but ... niether would the H16 since it is extremely dated and is "low-tech" compaired to the newwer boats such as the F16 ...

I personally feel the short list is as follows (when taking all aspects into account)

Viper
Tiger
Nacra F16
Nacra 17

The others are not really contenders with serious chances.

It is more like paraphrasing. Other items included that it will absolutely be a mixed team for 2016 (some think one & done - moving on to separate male & female events in 2020). I got a sense that the target weight dictated a younger team, 25-30 something for the US before middle age weight onset and that it is incumbent to support getting multihulls into the collegiate sailing scene.

The World Health Organization has a huge database for its BMI calculator. The 130-140 kg range is easily within the "normal" range for a mixed team.

As far as discussion as to which boat? It was pure speculation based on the above parameters. Frankly, I believe some emphatically interjected that Hobie was NOT interested in submitting the H16 w/spin.

It was a very professional MHC meeting coordinated by Mike Levesque with very little notice. The "after meeting" was strictly a coffee clutch and sharing opinions, ideas, and challenges.

I think it would be more diplomatic to write Mike directly. It is a volunteer's job. He just stepped into the role last fall and you are witness to the other issues that he has been working on. No need to publicly flog, yes?

who's flogging? If you can get out front, reporting to membership in a timely fashion, it shows strong leadership.

And wouldn't it be more appropriate to approach the volunteer privately and help him with that statement? Do have to be so gruff on a public forum of peers regarding a volunteer?

I think someone said it best: the forum Pete is totally different from the on-the-beach Pete.

I haven't been gruff. You guys assume everything I post is critical.

If I approach Mike as an individual, I'd come across as arrogant. Why would he feel inclined to answer to a single individual, especially in his volunteer capacity? Where would he find the time?

On the other hand, publishing minutes of a meeting or a brief synopsis shows a willingness to build concensus.

We've heard very little from MHC in the past and it has had little support from members at large. If you're making a new start why not reach out and try to build popular support?

I support MHC. Hopefully, others will come forward and voice their support.
