    Hi Grant, The committee has certainly been taking note of all that's been put to us over the previous few seasons as to how to improve the Super Series and the number of Nacras around the joint. Something to bear in mind, is that we have had many times more good things said to us about how things have been run over anything else we have heard, read or anybody has said to us. What I'm getting to is that we do listen, and if an idea will make life easier and improve the number and quality of Nacra sailors in NSW, whilst supporting as many clubs as we can then we will try to integrate it into the way things are run. And as before, if anyone has any counter points to what I have written, please let me have it. Mitch

    Guys, Scoring last year was based on ISAF Appendix A, with the exception of: The definition of DNS, which extended the starting area to the beach, and; The addition of a DNA (Did Not Attend) score to differentiate between a boat that showed up but missed a race due to repairs and a boat that did not show up at all. The States were scored at half points for the Super Series to ensure that they counted towards the total (because the larger number of boats would mean that round became the dropped round for most boats). At the moment, I am intending that the scoring will be the same, but keeping with requests to keep it simple: The states will be scored the same as other Super Series rounds. Just to address some points already raised: Showing up to a regatta, paying full race fees, buying food and drink, socialising and helping out all probably count sufficiently towards supporting host clubs. By keeping each round to the first four races of the weekend, each regatta remains equal within the series whilst enabling people to travel home on the Sunday if they need or want to. If we were to base scores on the whole regatta instead of individual races, two bad races (from thirty odd) could cost a boat two regattas (from six) and from there the series. All boats are scored equally, we just award trophies for the highest placed older boats. Skippers don't sail a slower boat because they want to ... if they don't get at least a small incentive to join in, we may not see them at all. If you'd like to see them in newer boats, convince the current owners to sell them cheaper. Introducing a handicap system works against keeping it simple. The idea of a state vs state is a good idea at the nationals, but looks unworkable at a state level ... at the moment, the NSW South Coast has one regular boat in the Super Series. I don't want to stop discussion on the topics, so if there are any counter points to my thinking, lets hear them please.

    Are newer 5.8's better than older 5.8's

    Hi Wangiboy, Sorry to burst your bubble on that idea, but under the Nacra class rules, unless you break something, you have to sail the regatta with the gear you start with. It's not something that might normally even be notice or enforced, but the rule is in there. Mitch
