So. Is it singlehanded sailboat racing? or is it a sailboat race between stops at your personal nannie's floating lounge? How the hell is it sensible to ban all sorts of equipment based upon one design and price and accessability and within our rules to allow a staffed personal $20,000 nannie boat? I think the nannie boat is absolutely NOT mentioned as legal in the class rules and therefore I must believe it is an illegal piece of equipment. How the hell can it be a fair contest when some of the "INDIVIDUAL" competitors are made up of a sailor, a Laser, a powerboat, a food and liquid supply, weather radios, Radios tuned to the RC, spare clothing, spare parts, a comfy matress, a spouse and or a girlfriend or boyfriend or all three. It certainly seems a SINGLEHANDED contest would include ZERO outside support or coaching of any sort from the moment the competitor's meeting begins until the close of the time for filing protests. Yes, the WITNESSED conversation would be, "Hi Mom. I'm on shore. I'm alive. Sorry I can't let you talk to me until after the regatta because that would be cheating. Bye." Certainly, without a witness, you could not ethically make that call.
