Interesting quick look at the results with a throw out. Top four would not have changed, Gratitude would have tied with thinkertoy for 4th and lost the t.b. making 926 5th. McNamara aka recks easly would have moved from ninth to 6th. A throw out would eliminate the big mistake on the part of the skipper and or on the part of the RC.
My worst score was during race one, my mental attitude was they will stop this soon. My mistake, should have focused on sailing but with a 90degree shift and a hole big enough to park Texas, we got killed. Was it fair sailing?? I did not think so at the time. I would be for reestablishing a throw out if seven were sailed. It would not have changed our finishing position.
