I haven't seen the WIRA or WV Governor's Cup results yet so it's a little early to post these polls, but I'll be unable to post for a few days and I want to get them up. I'd suggest you not vote until you see all results for this weekend.
In the right sidebar, you can vote for the top 10 eights and the top 5 fours. Vote the order you think the boats will be in at the end of the season, i.e. after IRAs. Don't get too wrapped up in lineups and who will get to race whom, just assume the season is over and you're looking back to rank. Make your own assumptions about lineups, about who will actually enter races, and who would win theoretical matchups (especially relevant for the fours).
Perhaps I'm too optimistic, but I think these polls can be the most informative around. It's all predicated, of course, on voters following an honor code. Here is what I think that code should be (I like having just three criteria, but if you have more to add, let me know):
- Only vote once.
- Vote with your head, not your heart.
- Only vote if you can make reasonable guesses for each spot.
