Re: A Tale of Two "Captains"

Cap'n ADD sends his thanks DOJ for the contribution, and says that he can now afford a "proper" captains hat befitting of his position in the heady world of boat icons.

Also he wishes to tell everyone that if they would like to turn their Westsail or similar cruising barges into a fleet leading flyer with no more modifications other than the knowledge he possesses in his salt encrusted brain, then he will be happy to instruct them, on their boat, for a measly $200 per hour. He will provide the earplugs and humility potions for the crew plus the notepads to write down his spoken epithets of wisdom.Bring your own pens.

Coops.

He's also writing a racing book.

Chapter 1 - Who you can blame when you don't win
Chapter 2 - How to keep the beer at optimum temperature
Chapter 3 - Why the race committee is your enemy and can't be trusted
Chapter 4 - Handicaps - Why everyone else's is too high
Chapter 5 - Boat prep is for sissies
Chapter 6 - Crew Resource Management - How to make them shut up
Chapter 7 - Sail Trimming - Not as important as you think
Chapter 8 - Racing Rules of Saililng - Not important at all
Chapter 9 - Tactics - If you aren't winning slow down the series leaders
Chapter 10 - Post Race - How to get free drinks in the bar
Chapter 11 - Trophies - Cheaper to buy than new sails

Re: A Tale of Two "Captains"

Chapter 12. The only winning tactic that you need to know. Keep your boat between the finish line and the rest of the fleet.

Re: A Tale of Two "Captains"

Chapter 1 Always allow the less fortunate sailer to win. you do not want to create any hard feeling with your superior sailing abilities

Chapter 2 Keeping the beer in the bilge water allows you to use less electricity

Chapter 3 Race committees are the devil of the weekend sailors. They think they know everything. Weekend housewives at there best

Chapter 4 It is better to give a sailor a handicap then have him bellow foul. Most likely been smoking some of the weekend preppy weed so he must be high

Chapter 5 Boat prep is done the week before so to save time on race day

Chapter 6 If the crew does not like it keelhaul them. Most are sissies anyway. Give me a cat-of-9 tails any-day

Chapter 7 Only weekend sailors trim sails. host them and forget them.

Chapter 8 The only rules in racing are "with your superior abilities give the other sailor a chance"

Chapter 9 Most of the other crew members do not have your abilities so when you give them them the tactics and commands to win the race do not be disappointed when you lose because they did not listen to you

Chapter 10 Always say you are going to buy a couple of rounds,, then,, when it becomes time to pay slip out the back jack

Nobody has ever seen us in the same room together.

Actually, i work part time in a chandlery over here, and there was a little book about race winning that we used to sell and that was one of the tips.
