The Enforcer

We’ve now got about a hundred “new rules” submissions, and they are awesome, so keep them coming. This one from “Matt”

Having done just enough sailing in big fleets to know that "stuffing it in there" at mark roundings is rarely met with any kind of penalty, I would like to add the following to our wonderful sport:

MANDATORY "ENFORCER" CREW POSITION:

  • All participating vessels in a regatta must identify one crew member as their vessel’s "Enforcer" on the event registration form.
  • Event organizers must distribute an "Enforcer" T-shirt, all of the same color (I suggest pink), to each registered vessel’s "Enforcer."
  • The "Enforcer" must weigh in within 10lbs of the regatta’s specified "Enforcer" weight.
  • The "Enforcer" must be wearing their identifying T-shirt at the Warning signal of the first race of the day and may not remove it until the bar is shut down at the end of the night.

1 MINUTE BOARDING RULE:
