Fleet Captain’s Message By Scott Oates

 

G

reetings from the helm.  Prior to getting to the issues, I’d like to thank our new Marina Superintendent, Peter Davidson, for providing the new MORF race committee lock box and to Boaters World for donating much of the hardware on the box. It’s a quality piece of equipment and we appreciate it. Thanks also to West Marine. They are hosting a registration party for the Friday night before the first MORF race, the March Winds, at West Marine (March 19th). John Gardner of North Sails San Deigo is scheduled to be there with Whitbred footage and talk. Refreshments provided. The entry form is attached, but come to the sign up party even if you preregister. The last thank you goes to the person(s) who repainted the starting rock... we needed that.

 

This years race schedule is attached. Any changes will be updated on the next newsletter in May.  For now, sign up for the March Winds Regatta which will be sailed on March 20th for most of us and also on the 21st for the Melges 24 entrants. See details on the entry form. Mike McCutchon   has done a great job promoting this regatta and expects additional J22's from Houston to come down.

 

I submit that our focus, goal, direction should be to increase participation. Simply put, it’s more fun to sail when a lot of boats are out. Dr. Bonner has pointed out problems with PHRF racing via the January ‘99 Spinnaker. I too think PHRF is inadequate and propose to use this year to find a solution. My concern here is that the PHRF issue has the potential to fractionize our group, as it already has to some degree.  I have more to say further down in this column, and I also refer you to Dr. Bonner’s fleet realignment article in this issue. Another way to facilitate participation is to facilitate crew finding. Brad Stokes addresses this issue in his column, and details plans for improving our MORF web page.

 

Race committee duty. We have room for improvement here, but it’s understandable that it doesn’t always go smoothly. It is easy to panic as you search for the lock box combination, then frantically read the instructions after gaining access all the while trying to determine who is racing in what fleet after figuring out the best course and number of starts. You become distracted and mess up the flag sequence timing. Do you honk once or twice and when? Familiarity  with the starting procedure would alleviate much of this problem, which is why you will find it attached to this newsletter. You will also find it posted soon on the web site. George Patton recommends the following solution to getting the elapsed times right. Use a wrist watch and a stop watch. Start the fleets and record the first boat finish time with the wrist watch. Honk horns and flag starts at the prescribed times. Start the stop watch when the first boat finishes then collect the time that elapses after this for each boat. If the stop watch is inadvertently reset, you can go back to the wrist watch and just write down the times when the remaining boats cross and calculate elapsed times later. In a perfect world, the race committee would have its start clock set to the U.S. Atomic clock. I understand the time shown on a GPS unit that has acquired satellites is synchronized to the atomic clock though I haven’t tested it. I have a clock from Radioshack which sets itself daily to the atomic clock via radio signal. It cost about $50.00, is battery powered, and works great. I’ve noticed already that some race committees are on atomic clock time.

 

The PHRF issue. I sail a J24, and recognize the PHRF problem sailing against the J22's. The lighter nights are ours, and when the wind picks up, the 22's gain an advantage. They surf easier and more often than we 24's. J22 racers say the 22 does not move well upwind in light air because they lack a genoa and can’t punch through the chop. When it really howls, we seem to achieve parity because both types are surfing continuously downwind, and when sailing upwind, moving well. It’s logical to conclude that inequities are magnified when racing J’s and displacement boats. Dr. Bonner proposes fleet realignment and I think it’s a good idea for now, but challenge MORF, the PHRF committee and Dr. Bonner to investigate other handicap methods such as the Americap system (Sailing World, August 1996). The Americap system factors in course type and wind speed to determine corrected times and may be good for weekend races and adaptable to Wednesday night races. PHRF inherently favors the horse for the course and I think we all want to win because we were better that race. The best reason for fleet realignment this year may be to encourage the B fleet boats to pull out their spinnakers and race PHRF all sails again so we can collect a years worth of data to see how PHRF and other potential systems compare. On the back of your MORF application, you can check whether you want Fleet realignment this year or not. If you have already signed up, you can send in the blank application with your vote. Whatever the outcome of the vote, if we are going to look at other handicap methods, we’ll need PHRF all sails, and 150 class racing volunteers to log times as they pass the course marks on Wed. night races and send them to me so we can study and compare individual boat type performances upwind vs reach and downwind. Ship 1 has agreed to collect wind speed and direction data pre and post race. Let me know if any of you know how to access wind speed and direction data from weather stations on the bay.

 

Finally, let’s not forget what a great deal we have, the finest sailing venue in Texas.

 

The companionway is open, see you on the line.

Fleet Realignment

 By Ed Bonner

My article on “Fleet Realignment” in the December 1998 issue of the “Spinnaker” has had the desired effect of “stirring the pot” regarding the subject of finding solutions to the problem of reduced race participation.  The respondents were nearly 100% in favor of the proposed “changes.”  Importantly, the comments came from sailors with all levels of racing experience and success. Their comments regarding how to “make it happen” are distilled below.   I am offering these two proposals to all: MORF directors, Weekend Race Chairman and  to fellow members of our sailing community.  The adoption of both proposals by them seems prudent and in the best interests of increasing yacht racing participation in South Texas.  

See you at the Starting Line in ’99

 

******************************************

PROPOSAL # 1

WEEKEND YACHT RACING

 

The current B-All Sails class would be divided into:  B-All Sails and J-All Sails.

 

This change would provide our Weekend racing fleet with four classes of racing participation   

instead of the existing three.

 

A-All Sails: All-Sails boats 150 PHRF and below.

B-All Sails: All-Sails boats above 150 PHRF.

J-All Sails: All Sails J-22 and J-24 boats, only.

150 Class:  All Non Spinnaker boats.

 

Implementation of this proposal involves the simple addition of these classes to any weekend race entry form and little else.

 

In the event that there are fewer than three boats racing in either A-All Sails, B-All Sails or J-All Sails, then the remaining boats may sail under the listing of A-All Sails and B-All Sails. In the extreme case of reduced participation, all of the All-Sails boats may sail in a single All-Sails class. The Principal  Race Officer ( Race Chairman for the event ) has the power to make those decisions.

 

PROPOSAL # 2

WEDNESDAY NIGHT YACHT RACING

 

The current B-All Sails class would be divided into:  B-All Sails and J-All Sails.  

 

This change would provide our Wednesday Night racing fleet with five classes of racing participation instead of the existing four, while retaining the original four starts.

 

Start #1:  B-Working Sails.  All working sail boats above 150 PHRF.

Start#2:   A-Working Sails.  All Working Sail boats 150 PHRF and below.

Start#3:   B-All Sails and J-All Sails boats.

Start#4:   A-All Sail boats 150 PHRF and below.

 

Implementation of this proposal involves the simple addition of these classes to the Wednesday Night Roster and little else.  The Wednesday Night race committees have to figure the PHRF results for the entire class, anyway.  The selection of 1-3 finishes in the J-All Sails class and the B-All Sails class and then phoning the Race Results into the newspaper might take 2 more minutes.  Objections to “added work” for the race committee people clearly evaporates when the process is operated as intended. 

 

Keeping track of an extra class for the Wednesday Night Handicappers represents little extra work as they are “experts” who are used to dealing with numbers as a way of life and often admit that they enjoy the challenges.

 

Race results shall be posted in the newspaper; first through third in every class, regardless of the number of boats sailing in that class. If fewer than three boats race in any Wednesday Night class:  A-Working Sails, B-Working Sails, A-All Sails, B-All Sails or the J-All Sails class, then the corrected finishing positions of the boats that do race will still be listed, in their respective classes, on race results phoned in to the newspaper.

 

The effects of the realignment on Weekend and Wednesday Night Regattas are all positive:

 

All J-22 and J-24 boats will be able to race in their own fleet, designated J-All Sails.

 

For Weekend Regattas, all MORC boats above PHRF 150 will be able to select B-All Sails, as a fine alternative to the 150 Class, with a chance of improved finishing positions.  For Wednesday Night Regattas, all MORC boats above PHRF 150 will be able to select B-All Sails, as an alternative to the B-Working Sails Class, with a chance of improved finishing positions.

 

This B-All Sails class realignment will encourage additional boats and crews to participate with the chance of improved finishing positions at Wednesday Night and Weekend racing events.  The anticipation of improved finishes in the “small boat fleet” will impact the Wednesday Night Race  and Weekend Race participation positively and all classes will, likely, show improvements in participation.  “Fun is contageous.”

 

More trophies will be awarded to the winning crews at each regatta. More year-end MORF trophies will be awarded to the winning crews.

The potential to increase MORF membership numbers and race particpation would, likely, offset the added cost of additional trophies.

 

A trial period of at least one season seems to be the consensus of the parties responding to a recent article on the subject of Fleet Realignment in the December 1998 “Spinnaker” newsletter.  The realignment idea received almost 100 % approval from those sailors knowledgeable about the current racing participation dilemma.  Naming the two class divisions and designating which boats to be included in each class brought varied responses and reasoned suggestions.  This was the intent of the article in the first place.  The B-All Sails and J-All Sails realignment meets all of the concerns by respondents to the aforementioned article and more clearly represents the will of the MORF membership.

 

Trophies are very highly regarded by all sailors and the crews very much enjoy seeing their “boat names” in the morning newspaper. This is an important lesson that must never be forgotten.

Secretary’s Notes by Brad Stokes

T

hanks for allowing the new guy to serve.  Among my goals for 1999 are to keep our mailing list up-to-date, to produce an informative and timely newletter, and to increase use of the webpage.    The mailing list starts with the annual MORF membership renewals.  Fill out the attached form and send it in with your check.  Membership is cheaper than your monthly cable TV bill and a heck of a lot more entertaining. 

 

The newsletter is written by MORF members.  Its my job to harass the members for articles and compile the mess into a newsletter.    I will be targeting certain individuals for their contributions but will gladly accept any submittal (provided that it is somewhat relevant and written in English).

 

Yes, Virginia, there is a MORF webpage.  The MORF webpage address is:   http://members.tripod.com/~texmorf/   (Remember, don’t type in “www” and don’t forget the tilde in front of texmorf).   My hope is that it will become a spot you will want to visit weekly.   It will be under constant construction and update.   I hope to have the Wednesday Night and Weekend Regatta results posted regularly.  It now has a Bulletin Board section for announcements and such (more on this later).  We have a pictures section under construction that will be linked to the home page soon (for a preview go to http://members.tripod.com/~texmorf/pics/pics.htm).  We have a suggestion for a forum section and that will be developed as well.    

 

All in all, it will be a busy year for me.  I can certainly use everyone’s help, suggestions, and support.  Now on to other matters…

 

Previous articles in the MORF Newsletter have discussed declining Wednesday night and weekend regatta participation, and a quick and unscientific poll of boat owners indicates that lack of crew is a common excuse.   Ed Bonner provides a proposal in this issue that may increase participation in the small boat fleet.   Regardless of how the fleet is organized, finding crew is still a problem for some skippers (Spengler and Blackmon excluded).  Being relatively new to Corpus Christi and having experienced 1998 as both crew and as a skipper,  I know firsthand that it is somewhat difficult to get started crewing if you don’t know anyone, and equally difficult to find qualified and regular crew when you do have a boat.

 

The current system of finding crew or finding a boat to crew on seems to be almost entirely by word-of-mouth.  I believe that Corpus Christi has a large pool of potential crew members that  would come out and race but don’t know how to get involved or may be intimidated at the prospect of asking perfect strangers if they need crew.  Similarly, I believe that there are a number of boat owners that would come out and race if they could just find enough crew to make it worth their while.  What MORF needs is a “clearinghouse” where boats and crew can get together.    Well folks, we already have it.  Its on our MORF webpage.  Go to the “Bulletin Board” section of the page and take a look.  I have an ad on there and it has already worked for me. 

 

Boat owners: If you’re looking for crew, send me an e-mail (pbrads@aol.com) or call me with your needs and I’ll put your notice on the Bulletin Board.  My phone at work: 882-3839 or home: 992-4882 (not after 10pm, I got young ‘uns).

Crew:  Same thing, e-mail me and I’ll post your notice.  Chances are, if you’re reading this now, you are a member of MORF or stole it from someone who is and finding a boat to crew on is not a problem.  So, how do we reach the rest of Corpus Christi?  Simple.  Advertising.   We can start by stenciling the webpage address on the MORF box at the T-head.  Folks can check the webpage and discover that there are boats out there that need crew.  Available boats and available crew can then sort themselves out.  The MORF officers seem to think this is a good idea, so it will probably happen unless someone speaks up and has a good reason why it should not.

 

Hopefully this will help increase the pool of active racers and crew.  You have a bunch of money tied up in your boat and you pay the city a chunk every month to park it.  The wind doesn’t cost anything.  Get off the couch and GO SAILING!

Offshore News

 by  Karl Stein

This year offshore will have a different emphasis and format.  I am going to spread out the series on the calendar.  Also I will try to scale down the events to reflect the reality that only a dozen or so local yachts will prepare and participate.  Regardless, the racing should be high level and the parties enjoyable.

 

I have had contact with the GBCA in Houston.  They have not set the schedule for the TORC yet or made any firm plans as of this date.  My initial impression is that they are more interested in getting Corpus boats up to the TORC events than holding an event in the Coastal Bend.  Admittedly they have a point in that we send very few yachts to race in their events.  Still the logistics of campaigning a big boat at a venue over four hours drive from home is unbelievable and probably beyond the interests of most of our MORF fleet.

 

 

Here is the 1999 offshore schedule:

 

July  17 and 18      two day triangles

Aug 21 and 22       two more day triangles

 Oct   16  Port A. to Galveston

 

By spreading out the series hopefully there will be more variation in the weather.  And by skipping September maybe we can dodge some tropical storms.

 

As I mentioned in my talk at the year end party, the Port Isabella race is a dead issue. By leaving Labor Day open I hope more people will join the Rockport Yacht club in sailing to Port Mansfield.  However, the draft and depth issues are so severe that I can not include in scoring for the series.

 

October 16th is six days before the Lakeway Yacht  Club’s Harvest Moon race.  I hope by staging a feeder race to this very popular event more yachts will turn out for the distance race.  I feel compelled to include an overnight race in the series.  Dr. Mike Appel would not have approved of handing out a trophy in his honor that did not include at least one tough race.

 

The day triangles present some of the most difficult  tactical  decisions for the skipper.  They also present the most difficult task for the race organizer--find a starting boat willing to bob around offshore.   I will try to do so for the starts.  The finishes will be inside.  However, as a fall back procedure I will include a provision for “rabbit starts” in the sailing instructions.  Rabbit starts are mostly used by kids in dinghies that can’t find an adult to start them (sort of like the offshore series).   Try to read up on the technique before July.  If there is interest I may write a brief explanation in a future letter.

 

                See you out there !
