For reference, 731 people have read the report so far. Your writing is not in vain! Clap

This week I have friends sailing in the Firefly Nationals, as well as other friends competing in the Javelin Europeans. Every day reports are posted on here of the Fireflies and very good they are, but they are tack by tack accounts of the top few boats and there are no daily overall results. My friends are obviously placed somewhere between 6 and 40! Unless they spent the week in the pub of course, I have no idea. I think that these reports are like a local paper, you only buy it to see pictures of your kids in the nativity play.

Not many boats in the Javelins but I get nightly reports by text anyway.

One of the tabs I have open on my browser at the moment is http://www.restronguetsc.org/results/2015/Firefly%20Nationals%202015.htm which I'm refreshing every so often to see if it's updated with the day 3 results!

So what's changed in 30 years then?  I only ever bought Y&Y to read the clubs and classes bits of the classes I was interested in.  And to dream big drooling over the classified ads.

I thought everyone read Y&Y back to front?  Thesedays I only click on the reports for classes I'm interested in, or feel peer-pressured into reading through backdoor links off this forum.... your Byte report being a prime example  LOL

I'm afraid not, and those semi naked women who follow you or like your pictures, are probably the same guy called Roland who works from a bank of linux boxes in the basement of his mom's house in Idaho.
