There are almost 10,000 OSO members and hundreds of APBA members on this board. This thread amounts to 3 or 4 guys posting 4 pages of crap. Those of us who raced in Marathon had a great time and will continue to do so under your guidance. I have been racing for 3 years and have only seen progress.
Racers come and racers go for various reason but the sport is moving foward in my opinion.
Can anyone tell me of an era in offshore when 80-90 boats show and race, most finish, most are deck to deck racing until the finish.
NO WAY, it never happened until LLC.
People gets pissed and yes, sometimes with rule changes and classes being eliminated etc. we do take a step or two back.
BUT, for every step back, LLC takes two foward.
This amounts to great numbers of boats and great head to head racing. If you don't like it than go to SBI and run in their Poker run without cards. Mike A, nobody but a disgruntled few are even listening to this BS
