And then in today's Annapolis evening rag, The Capital , we have this comment by Mike Schmidt, top Master at the Laser Radial ACC,
Schmidt said he has noticed one drawback of competing against younger sailors and that involves a complete disregard for the rules. The Pasadena resident said he has come to accept the fact that fouls will occur constantly and that no one is going to perform penalty circles.
Whew! that is one damning quote, particularly since even regular Laser racing can be like the Wild West.
