Actually the LDS series was propose to offset the season championship and nationals was never intended to be on the schedule as a result events like DHF and lightship are hurting in low attendance and with the new NorClaORC rules it is even harder to get boats out.

In 2004, DHF, Lightship, Spinnaker Cup and Coastal cup were well attended events on the E27 schedule; gone are the good old days

The LDS intent is and should be to cultivate participation in unique and less popular events that are not normally on the schedule. The schedule should change from year to year with input from boat owners.

Instead the schedule has become standardized with 3BF, YRA Party Circuit and e27 Nationals the primary events. Other regattas like 2015ís Crewed Lightship have no weight in the series and the proposed schedule is no different for this year.

Itís not about winning a series but acknowledging these other events while the highly competitive races are reserved for the season championship.

Congrats to El Raton for winning the 2015 LDS!

:: Sure I will post up what i have so far. Yes the

:: other races to qualify. I work pretty hard to make sure

:: :: Thanks for you hard work.
