  • Melges 32 Worlds Thread and Contest

    Now that the Big Boat Series has ended and the sore and tired return to their regular jobs to rest,
    (except those participating in both BBS and M-32 Worlds) Its time focus on the final major International Regatta of the year, The much anticipated Melges 32 Worlds.

    We had a good preview of what to expect to a certain extent. Most of the top players hovered around the surface in tight action, even though most of the time on Thursday and Friday you could not see them. A major surprise occurred in Sunday's finale, when Jeff Ecklund's Star pulled out of the race when it became evident that there was no catching B-Lin. According to our un-named sources, there are 8-10 teams which have the potential to win the worlds this year, and naming them might provide an unfair advantage to Pick to Win contestants, so we will leave it to your to do your own D&D.

    The racing starts in earnest Wednesday with 2 races scheduled daily on the Berkeley Circle. Wx for the week looks much better than this past week, with an actual warming trend on tap for the week.

    The tight course events on the "Circle of Pain" should lead to very exciting conditions for all the competitors with a premium on boat speed, as these go fast machine eat up the down hill legs in
    a big hurry, any errors will be greatly magnified.

    You can see the entire crew lists by clicking Complete Crew List and the entry list Here

    How the contest will work:

    Pick your top 3 Teams in order of your predicted finish

    Select a throwout number of the 3 teams combined worst finishes.

    ( ie throwouts of 15, 12, 8 = 35)

    Scores will be cumulative, through out the event. Highest points scored wins

    Players will be awarded points thusly:

    3 points for each 1st place, 2 points for each 2nd and 1 for each
    3rd that their selections score during event.

    1st tie breaker: Correct order of finishers (Final Results)

    2nd tie breaker most bullets combined by your 3 teams

    3rd tie breaker guess closest tie beaker matching actual throwout combined scores

    4th tie breaker -Dartboard

    You can sign up any time, however scores for races already started will be subtracted from your final
    score.

    Winners recieve:

    1st Place: a $100.00 Gift Certificate to Point Loma Outfitting

    2nd Place: A custom dry shirt courtesy of Dry Shirt with artwork of you choice from H2oshots.com

    3rd Place: A Pressure Drop Tee Shirt

    Good luck and have fun!

          Note: This is based on my belief that fearsome sounding boat names win races. Just a theory to explain why my boats (Polka Dot and Lady Bug) have never won a race.

                          And I'm not keeping track this time... Do you think WD will pick 3 boats or can he pull it off with only two picks?

                            He should be limited to 1 pick
