I see this a lot: Less classes. What is the magic number? 5? what do you do with boats that show that dont have 5 boats? move them up a class? Will you lose boats? If there was class 1-6 at races we could filter people into these classes until they could fill the 5 boat requirement. Some how we have to thin out the classes to put more boats in less classes. Mobilcam posted the classes that had the most activity in an earlyer thread. I say build on those first! This may not sit well with some but we are racers and we need competition if we want any respect. Maybe more exposure for the bigger classes.
Let me ask this too you all. Who do you respect more, the teams that beat 15 other teams in class 6 or the teams that beat 2 other teams in the top classes? Do you ever wonder how good you would be if you were in that big boat but know you will never have a chance to find out? Are they truly the best or just are in a position that most will never have a shot at. Maybe we should build classes that more people could attempt to afford. I dont have the answers just the questions.
