I think we are both fumbling around with the same ideas and directions.
 
Indeed the 18 footers were reputed for dropping excess crew off at the windward mark.  No records of sharks ever taking a sailor around Sydney.
 
Legend hath it that this practice was the cause of the present rule rules.
 
Bonus points to anyone who can tell us why this is just a legend.

Because 18 footers didn't use IYRU rules in the old days?

You win a little something from Teaky's desk.
 
Congratulations.  A management consultant would never have known that answer.
