It's a tiny view but you can watch from the web cam from the St. Francis Yacht Club. I must be the only one watching since I've had free control to point the camera anyhere I want. All of you, STAY OFF MY WEBCAM!

There's Team Korea, right out front! Cool!

Yesterday (Wednesday) was just KILLER to watch on this cam! Silly to say but it was like I was standing on the beach in SF. The weather was foggy, the wind was blowing, the water was rough, the boats were CLOSE and the bow spray was smokin'. I grew up in Marin and spent countless hours surfing nearby at Ft. Point and drinking Colt 45 out of a paper bag. That hometown beach view was so real I could smell the Bay and taste the beer. I just MUST be there for the 72s in 2013! We should organize a Catsailor Forum beach party for the 2013 finals. First round is on me (as long as less than 100 of you show up).

I'll be doing the YouTube thing at 4:30. Thanks for posting the full video time.

Booooo! 4:30 PST means 7:30 p.m. EDT and I will be at a Little League game. I hope they rebrodcast the YouTube match racing. Fleet racing is next and broadcast live I think. No cats visable on the web cam right now (5:15 EDT).

Andrew, only you would consider drinking 100 quarts of Colt 45, each in it's own paper bag (legal way to drink on the street in SF). Hey, 99 for you, one for me, OK? But only if you go to SF in 2013 for the 72s.

Races were great, commentators were lame.

Reminded me of the guys you get on lower level division II college football games. Calling gibes tacks and how the skip needs to run across the trapeze to get to the other side were hilarious.

Bring back Mitch Booth and the other guy from the August races.

announcers may effect viewership, so it's important, but i put my big stereo on surround sound, and lower the front center (announcers) and hear the wind, the mic-ed up captain breathing hard, and screaming orders in surround sound ... and pay no attention to announcers ...

Re: ACWS San Fran PART TWO - 10/05/12 09:01 PM

I liked Ansley cussing out the crew for gybing slow near the finish of fleet race two (Thursday). Must be used to singlehanding...

Good work by the kid on Artemis White (Thursday) with a pair of 4s in this fleet....

Re: ACWS San Fran PART TWO - 10/05/12 09:50 PM

I am guessing neither of the announcers has ever raced a Cat nor on one.

If they keep it up they will ward off more new viewership than attract.

Good tip on shutting down my center channel, thanks for that one MN3.

Where's Ashby? If NZ canned or shelved him that's a HUGE mistake. Best sailor out there.

edit: Found out he broke ribs in a capsize and flew home.

Re: ACWS San Fran PART TWO - 10/07/12 03:51 PM

Jump to segment between 1:12:00 through 1:13:45. Terry Hutchinson and team escape a close call. Hutchinson has great presence to stay clear while keeping an eye on the mast coming down on them.(1:13:00 to 1:13:07). Great remote camera work!

The commentary sucks. It's like watching Dumb and Dumber. Every time Todd Harris sticks his foot in mouth, Jobson has to correct him. Get rid of these annoying clowns, at least Harris.



Why in the hell is Todd Harris commentating sailing??

At least Ainslie didn't assault anyone...

No chance Jobson got through this round without reminding us that "they" say you can't match race on multihulls?

Pissing off the boat was a nice touch. Makes him seem human ,like the rest of us.
Be nice if he attacked Jobson, that'd boost some ratings.

Preferably with an axe!
Yesterday Jobson explained that catamarans had two hulls, who knew!?
I would be ok with dumb comments as long as it where correct but most of what he says isnt.

Re: ACWS San Fran PART TWO - 10/08/12 04:51 PM

Jobson's refusal to call that a pitchpole drove me nuts. We've worked hard and developed this terminology over years and years of catamaran sailing. This was not a "capsize"...it was a "Pitchpole".

The man refuses to assimilate. Can't blame him though multihull racing is just a fad.

Like it or not a very large percentage of the players and commentators still can't stand multihulls, they're just whoring themselves out to make a buck. Jobson and S.A.'s media darling,Genny Tulloch( yeah, she's cute,that's about it) are 2 great examples. I'd venture to guess many of the sailors feel that way also, but you'll never get anyone to admit it until the AC goes back to pig boats, then you'll hear it in truckloads."I really never liked those multihulls, I'm glad we're back in slow ,easy to sail , mono slugs. that cat stuff was too hard."

Well we may as well have fun with a favorite ACWS bloopers string...they did offer a lot of stupid comment humor.

.....At the windward mark, the boat in the lead is rounding while flying a wing, priceless.

Gary, called the gennaker/code zero , the jib multiple times.
Spithill's pitchpole (eehhhh Jake?) befuddled them with GJ saying "he had the wing eased", but in the replays you see the wing go out long after the rudders left the water.
My favorite was no coverage or explanation, ever, of how Spithill gained all that ground with a penalty in Sat. last fleet race and finished second.

Brilliant!!!

Can someone with video editng skills piece together a 2-5 minute string of those gems? I will use it to kick off the Multihull Council meeting in San Fran (as the opening segment in a web-based meeting).

No budget to pay you, but free advertising and pride are available...

The pics I assume you're talking about, Mr brucat. Slide show is in process. I'll get it to you.

Unconfirmed Rumor: Sheet around neck of a crew member at mark rounding. Sheet cut by other crew member, who also cuts his finger. Ensuing capsize due to crew off station. Researching now. Has anyone seen this info published anywhere yet?

Re: ACWS San Fran PART TWO - 10/08/12 06:39 PM

No Jeremy, not pics. A video blooper reel featuring as many of the moronic and irritating comments as we can find over the series of the events.

Everything else has been done already.

I read that Cheese was the one who had to be sliced cut free.
As the wing trimmer he would have the highest risk of getting tangled up.

How many times did you hear Gary Johnson saying the lead boat's strategy should be to cover the 2nd place boat only to have the two split for opposite sides of the course at the mark rounding.

I've always seen covering as a boring mono-slug strategy.

Mitch Booth said it right, you start worrying about the boat behind you, you'll lose every time.
