mercy kill?

Given Southwestern Yacht Club’s long history of incredibly poor race management coupled with it’s recent targeted vitriol, it is little surprise that the upcoming San Diego to Ensenada race, with just 13 days until entries close, has a whopping 14 boats entered. This is a race that routinely drew 70, 80 boats, but has seen a steep and steady decline, finally reaching it’s nadir this year.
Are they just this dumb, or are they purposely trying to kill it? After all, why continue to slowly, year after year, just beat it to death when you can finally be done with it? Any guesses what they’ll do with the body?
We’d guess they’ll dump it at the feet the Cortez Racing Association.
