Fantasy Yacht Club - Notice of Race (CaptainADD Memorial Series)

1. Rules - The race will be governed by the International Sailing Federation's Racing Rules of Sailing, except the first 30 Chapters which are too complicated and detailed

2. Entries - All entries will be registered with The widowADD with an accompanying fee of $32.10 per boat plus $15.00 per crew. Payments can be made by PayPal or equivalent value of beer, rum and hamburger meat

3. Notices to Competitors - Will be posted on twitter and the widowADD's knitting blog (where there is a convenient PayPal button) although it is probably more convenient to just ask the skipper or bowman on the next boat about any changes during the prestart

4. Changes to Sailing Instructions - Wiil be made frequently and distributed by word of mouth as not everyone has twitter but everyone can ask the next guy

5. Signals Made Ashore - Are confusing so we plan to make a lot of them. When the "AP" signal is made ashore it means the race is delayed 30 minutes or thereabouts and "All Party" is encouraged. Boats without coolers will be penalized

6. Schedule of Races - See instruction 4

7. Class Flags - The class flag for Cruising Keelboats is B for beer. The class flag for IOR and IRC certified boats is W for wannabees. The class flag for Cruising Catamarans is T for I Think all Cats Are Faster Than Monos. The Class flag for "bluewater" boats, houseboats with steadying sails, liferafts and Hunters is G for Get out of the way of the real boats.

8. The Start - The race will be started using rule 26. If you don't know rule 26 just follow someone. You can pass him on the course later. The starting line will be biased and moved frequently but the last move of the committee boat will be no later than 1 minute before thre start. The start time will be 12:05 using an average of 3 different Casio sport watches worn by various committee members and a sundial mounted on the committee boat cabin top.

9. The Course - Will be sort of windward/leward dependig on where the wind is blowing. All marks rounded to port unless that is too difficult, then round to starboard or "get close" and give it a try. The Committee will give credit for trying. A picture of the mark using a camera phone is probably close enough

10. The Marks - Will be various colors and locations. We will add a couple of crab pot buoys to make it interesting

11. The Finish - Will happen eventually. The time limit for all boats is when the beer runs out on the committee boat (sail fast or donate more beer)

12. Scoring - Will be done in secret behind closed doors using a home grown handicap system

13. Alternative Penalties - RRS 44.2 will apply however no one likes making gybes so the penalty is one tack followed by a down down of 16 oz of beer. Running out of beer results in a DSQ result

14. Identification - All boats must be identified. No wearing disguises and there can only be one Jolly Roger pennant per fleet (its not that funny). There is a special prize for the boat that gets identified simply as "That boat with the bowchick with the massive hooters" - plan accordingly

15. Protests - Are a big pain in the butt so we won't be hearing any

15. Declaration - All entrants must sign on the race sheet sometime before, during or after the race. Upon completing the course he/she must sign off the sheet. The declaration indicates that the skipper didn't pass out from drinking so really didn't give the race his best effort.

I find that hard to believe as e was a sailor and wanted to be with the water. I think you must be one of the committee boat drivers,,,

Don,,, My attorney advised me that the letter was fake. Being that I have sailed with you I find it hard to believe that CaptainADD was your dad. His skills go unmatched. I am disregarding the letter and advise you to do the same. last week I was promoted from mate to Captain. I am currently working on his old sailboat getting it race ready for next month. See you on the course.
