… is over. It’s done.
You know, I haven’t watched a single race in the whole long series, despite being following their site. But, hey, that’s my perogative, as a non-racing, hardly even sailing, member of the SL Sailing Community. But here’s my question to all my fellow TrYC members:
Did anyone of you attend the cup races, did we send a TrYC racing team? We did it in the past, you know? With extra designed outfits for team and fans and with specially designed TrYC boats and all the hullabaloo of a professionally managed racing team.
So, not dissing Lucy, she’s doing her weeklies and we’re all thankful and proud of her for that. But as far as I know we’re still over 400 members in TrYC, how come we don’t have at least a little core group of RDs and a racing team? Remember the Blue Marlins? Why are we/you so fukn lame?
Here we have SL, technically more besterer than it ever was, lots of established race courses, super boats, most yacht clubs still more or less in existence. Particularly TrYC has still a reputation as a non-Blake club, all about “sailing first”, a nice startline with dozens of race charts to choose from … and nobody but Lucy makes use of the infrastructure? Serious?
I still remember times, not too long ago when the Triumphal lagoon was a hub of sailing activities, daily races, our own team, sailing academy, very active club leadership and directors and you could always find the one or other member being busy at the club.
Either practicing starts, working on their boats, taking LMs to create new race courses, and whatnot activities. Or some people hanging out in front of the clubhouse, experimenting with illegal substances …
Gawd, I’m missing that spirit.
When was the last time you spontaniously engaged in a 4some?
Back when Orca was a hungry revolutionary …
Back when Jane made PHRF handicap tables for all SL sailing boats …
Not sayin’, just asking why the fük can’t the new SL residents be as active and quirky as we once were???
