      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Just checking in to see if you would be interested in Hot Rum #2 tomorrow on J/27

  2. Eds SC-33 Anarchy 3

    1. He's San Diego not SoCal 2. No credits 3. The only published changes are for Corinthian ratings
  3. New Sails

    For 3500 you can get the main or the genoa, not both
  4. J/27 rig tensions

    Lots of help on J/27 Wikipedia Uppers and Lowers even tension around 850-900. Mast butt position determines mast prebend, so find out what that should be for your main. We have about 8 3/4" from main bulkhead to back of mast as run a very flat main, about 1" prebend, to get max leach projected area. Double toggle at bottom of headstay to get the 31' 5'' - 6" headstay length.. take off 4 turns for very light, add 8 for medium heavy
  5. Winning would depend on whether your boat likes to reach and whether you went inside or outside at Todos Santos Bay.

  8. Pole back! From the FP...

    Looking forward to hearing about that trip!
  9. that time of the month

    That's why Socal and San Diego use a 3 number system, WL,RL and OW
  10. J27 predomonent sailmaker?

    I've developed my inventory with North San Diego over 12 years, they know the boat inside out and the kites #1's and mains are really fast and fit the boat straiight from the factory. Having said that work with someone who will get to know your boat. I'm in SAN so that's easy. Used to love Q kites, bur now the North 1.5S .5oz is just as fast, maybe faster..
  11. ED and crew hate BAR

    I wondered why? Seriously they are a start up and Ainslie has always been an aggressive racer, but still.....
  12. mondo bondage

    Very few in 4 do those, look at the SD race calendars, 4 major clubs,, busy busy and 8-16 in 4 Welcome to Class 4, Scott, good group.
  13. mondo bondage

    I may be wrong but I believe all those "adjustments" were well over 12 years ago....Anyway the SC33 is a Consent rating boat.
  14. Corinthian ratings a good thing?

    If you read through the PHRF SoCal class rules it does separate the cruisers with adjustments (so called ":Corinthian" class) into their own fleet, thus they do not play in the general PHRF pool
  15. J27 vs Evelyn 32

    Had my 27 20 years, very fast in all conditions, squarehead main is great addition. regularly 8-10 in medium air, maxed out 17 in big waves, nice thing is huge barn door off back gives great control Mains are almost same size on both, but foretriangles pretly different. 27 built to last, and very raceable with 4.
