Shields@Noon in TrYC – January 27th, 2018

Oh, so many things. Where to start?

Some of the regulars simply didn’t come: Paul, Chris, Lamp. On the other hand Wippy returned, but not in good shape, crashed in first and after a series of crashes didn’t even start 2nd race.

First race was 2 laps of C3, but… Even if I warned them 3 times, including one after the clock was started, Moon simply forgot this and stopped after 1st lap:
[2018/01/27 12:05] Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis): lets go!
[2018/01/27 12:05] LucyInTheSky Afarensis: relayed
[2018/01/27 12:05] Raceline: /me : Countdown Started
[2018/01/27 12:06] Lucy (LucyInTheSky Afarensis): remember: 2 laps
[2018/01/27 12:06] LucyInTheSky Afarensis: relayed

And Riz went outside line when finishing 1st lap. I know Orcsi, you would simply DSQ him. But he is a novice 😉 . Dean and Wippy crashed and Sadal was called by RL, abandoning the race.

Great news, Lalia is quickly improving her skills in the Shields, both in start and in lap times.

  1. “I know Orcsi, you would simply DSQ him.”
    You can bet your sweet naked Brasilian @$$ on that, Lu. Although not DSQ but DNF! I guess I wouldn’t even need to DNF them myself as the line would simply not register them as finished.

    “But he is a novice 😉”
    So what?
    You and me, we were n00bies too at one point. And we were really sweet and sexy girln00bs and not fugly boyn00bs. I even sailed in a transparent night gown for a while. And did anyone give me extra points for that or spared me DNFs and DSQs or even showed me some mercy? No!
    Quite the contrary: When I crossed the finish line after one race the RD shouted at me for fucking up his results list. They had started the next race already and didn’t wait for me or told me to stop before crossing the line. And you can be sure I never lost my way again in a race or used too much time to finish.
    That’s how you learn how to be a good little racer. Not by being pampered. =^.^=

    “Great news, Lalia is quickly improving her skills in the Shields, both in start and in lap times.”
    Yeah, I see already: Kinda 3 minutes faster than the next boat. Pretty cool.
    Much more important tho: Did Lalia figure out now how to always have an ID’d boat in inventory?

    And this:
    “LaliaCasau Resident IDLC02 — Start: 00:00:03 — Last lap: 00:10:36
    LucyInTheSky Afarensis IDLUCY — Start: 00:00:54 — Last lap: 00:10:01
    Dean March IDDM02 — Start: 00:01:27 — Last lap: 00:12:07
    RIZLER Rodex IDRIZ6 — Start: 00:01:17 — Last lap: not finished”
    As it seems is Lalia the only sailor in your fleet, able to cross the start line in time. 😮 Dean and Rizler … where were they, finishing their beers or still on the toilet? And you didn’t do too well neither, Lu. Almost a minute late! 😦 But you’re excused since you’re the RD and have a lot to do during the countdown.

    But really. I wonder how can anyone be so far off the startline that they need more than a minute to make it to the line??? A real riddle. Remember Hanne’s racing academy? She gave everybody good tips on how to be at the start in time. Shame that she’s gone now. 😦

    If I wasn’t sooo fukn lazy I’d almost feel tempted to write an article about racing tactics … including a timely start.
