  1. Excellent response, answered my question fully. Thank you all. Steve
  2. Just for my own interest, does anyone know where I can find the definition of "The Zone". I have looked on the net but haven't come across an actual definition. I know it's 4 boat lengths in model yachting, but is it to the centre of the mark, or 4 boat lengths from the radius of the mark? In full size racing the size of the mark is small compared to the length of a boat, but in our world, especially sailing the smaller boats and using full size buoys, the difference could be significant. I would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction! Cheers Steve
  3. Hi, I read the instructions like Mark did, and have sent Vinnie an email. My mail say's it was received but not read yet. I am sure there is a better way! Steve
  4. View of a skipper that has been to all but one of the ranking events over the last couple of years, one of a number that is helping towards the perceived problem. I agree with most, that why dramatically change a system that is obviously successful. A few tweaks are all that is needed. As I see it, one reason for the increase in numbers at the ranking events, is that Skippers are encouraged (forced) to enter all the ranking events in the calendar, because missing any could demote them in the ranking list. Currently if you miss (or have bad fortune) two of the double ranking events you only
  5. Thanks Brad, All I need now is the list of events. Cheers Steve Yep just looked, Birkenhead not on the Club list.
  6. Thanks Darin, Could someone shed some light on how the points are accumulated? From what I have gathered each district nominates 6 events to count towards the Leagues? Cheers Steve
  7. Hi, Please could someone point me to this years MYA Club and Individual League results? I assume they are available as the winners were announced at the AGM! Secondly where can I find a list of counting events? Looking at previous years results in the Members area, there were very detailed records of individual and club points. But the last couple of years there has only been a list of positions. This is something that has been discussed down at the water but to be fair nobody has given me a definitive answer on how it works. Where can I find more info? Cheers Steve
  8. Hi All, Could someone recommend a permanent ink pen for signing sails. The signature on my sails has faded making it almost unreadable. I have contacted my measurer to get them resigned, no problem. But he says he has tried various makes of pen without success, they all fade over time. To help stop this problem from re-occurring, does anyone have a solution? Regards Steve
  9. Hi, (my first post) I had a similar request from a new member for the previous issue of Acquaint at our Club last Thursday (Sail Setting Part 1). I have lent another member mine to read. I have since had a look on the MYA site for past copies of Acquaint in digital format (pdf), I found some selective articles but not the whole magazine, then they seem to have stopped in 2012. I have not been sailing long so past Acquaints would be nice to read over the winter period. Basically have they been published? If so could someone point me in the right direction. Regards Steve
