Finals in Sailors Cove March 4-5

Postby Jane Fossett » Mon Feb 28, 2011 8:03 am

The Four Finalists (in alphabetical order):

Eureka
Kenobi
New Experiment
SVC-472


Each earned a 'perfect' set of four first-place wins;
no tie-breaker was needed!

The FINALS event will be in Sailors Cove on March 4-5, hosted by Fishers Island Yacht Club.
A Finals Party will kick-off the event on Friday, and the races will be in Plum Gut Saturday.
The draft charts are shown below. There will be four races, and each should take approximately
15 minutes to complete.
The results will be scored using a standard low-point system with one discard.
Appendix A 8.1 and 8.2 will be used to break any ties.
Following the races, there will be an Awards Ceremony
at Fishers Island Yacht Club and a Regatta Closing Party!

Here are the beta charts (round the marks in the directions indicated).

And what if I tell you that some of my posts, doesn't reflect a critical side, but a perfectionist side, that I can not stand mediocrity when one could do great things even easier. Do I deserve a spanking? Do not say "yes!" or assume...

I agree that the changes are surprising.. but I have to admit.. I would have liked one 'race' during the series to have been like this

For someone will agree with them.

Be Careful of your Conduct,
for someone will imitate it.

Note a good idea... No choice no strategy.... First at the crossing of the start sim first at the end :( ad friends who stop other boats will discredit a really nice final :(

Dyrssen Cup

Postby Jane Fossett » Mon Feb 28, 2011 11:56 am

Thank you to Nomad Zamani (whose Narwhal team won J-Classic) for his
wonderful help fashioning ONE WORLD's top prize: The Dyrssen Cup.
As we build up for the Finals, Kentrock will put the trophy on display over at Fisher's Island Yacht Club.

The skills required are not quite the same and the ranking after 8 rounds would certainly have been different with this format.


"Surprising choice?"
:-) The format for ONE WORLD was based on J-CLASSIC.
The Finals plan this year exactly parallels what we did in that earlier Regatta.
Zero surprise.

"...the ranking after 8 rounds would certainly have been different with this format."
Well, that's an interesting opinion, but it's wrong.
As I've emphasized before, the scores from the eight qualifying rounds
in J-CLASSIC validly predicted the Finals outcome in that Regatta.
I had doubts too last year, but now we have data supporting the format decision.
We'll see how it plays out in ONE WORLD.

Shameless pandering from last year's J-CLASSIC Finals:

J-Classic was already a surprise.
Now there is a second surprise to repeat the same mistake.

It is neither interesting nor wrong.

I have the numbers;
I'm not arguing the point.
There's nothing to argue,
and Bea there never was.

We had four boats on these courses this morning and had a lot of fun ... and a TON of passing. The yellow mark in the sim north of Plum Gut is really in an interesting position. The two races that require that mark to be rounded first, were tactically challenging in this morning's races. The same mark on the downwind ... I think all four boats took different paths to the next mark.

This is just my opinion, but I'm thankful for shorter races with marks that are close together. Thirty-eight degrees: gestures ... round ... one-twenty degrees: gesture ... rinse & repeat, was really starting to get old, to me. Again, just my view. :D

Crude Finals

Postby Jane Fossett » Mon Feb 28, 2011 2:08 pm

Just clarifying a point that's a basic part of the Rules:

"This is a boat race, not a skipper race."
Therefore a team can add a new member at any time,
including members recruited in the middle of a race.
A team can even have a full back-up crew
and a new boat prepared to launch
in case the Start boat goes offline.

All four Finals teams this weekend are 'short.'
In other words, if their full Starting crew all crashed offline and could not re-enter SL quickly,
they don't have extra crew to launch a back-up boat to continue racing.

The back-up option is part of ONE WORLD's design,
and no redress will be given for any team that can't log-in following a crash.

Any Finalist team can still still add members at this point, and there's a large community
of ONE WORLD sailors from the qualifying Rounds they can draw from if they choose. :-)

In that regard, I understand Kentrock, Hay, Joyof, and Fanci and Patrick are the FIYC hosts
this weekend. If you recruit any of them to race, please let me know! :-)
(Yikes, I don't have back-up for them!)

You certainly have lot of numbers so what?
I am not arguing neither.
My point is to say that it is a bit abnormal, say surprising, that a final use different format than qualifying rounds.
After two months of long distance races, the winner will depend on short races. Yes, surprising, a no sense.

Actually, running statistical correlations are one way I convince myself the races are valid tests of skill, not random events.
I think those 'numbers' are meaningful, but I agree that's a whole different topic that deserves its own thread.
I think it's off-point here.

Finals Spectator Blimps

Postby Jane Fossett » Mon Feb 28, 2011 9:18 pm

Thank you to momomos Netizen.
He's picked spectator blimp locations for the Finals
(that also overlap with Kentrock's choices),
and he'll work with Fanci to get them all installed.

God! I love those blimps! :-)
