I should be doping...

Getting ready for the start of Beercans on Thursday, I thought it might be a good idea to review the racing rules. Racing rules are boring. But do you know what isn't? Doping. Here is the International Sailing Federation's anti-doping code. Of interest, the International Sailing Federation uses the World Anti-Doping Agency's list of banned substances. I am going to assume that cycling and running use the same list. I am not sure if a single list benefits me or not. Probably not, I could end up getting banned from three sports if I decide I want to be taller. Speaking of human growth hormone, does anybody think Sylvester Stallone's head looks bigger?

So anyway, can somebody please read that WADA list and tell me if sailing has banned alcohol? Balboa Yacht Club: If you name your Thursday night races "Beercans", you are just begging us participants to drink.
