      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.

    It is telescoping and fits on deck without issue.

    I am unable to participate this year, but Jabuka was a blast in 2014. On SWE27 we have a new tool this year, a carbon fiber extendable whisker pole.

    Oh, and jib on furler works well with the usual trade off's.

    On SWE27 we have tried to have all sails except main on furlers. We used SpinEx top down furlers It works, even with gennakers, but there are less things to go wrong without them. The main issue with gennakers on furlers that we have had is to get tension in the halyard during furling, it takes several rounds for it before the top down furling begins. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152436644101773&l=31a8b8f977 https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152436643621773&l=cb36080725 And then there is this situation, that is a bit frustrating, but can happen.. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152689839796773&l=e96e506755

    Seven SSC27 entered in the 2014 Jabuka Race in Croatia. Today some test and practice with 10-27 kts winds. Check out official Seascape 27 Jabuka web site: http://jabuka27.com/

    Looking great!

    About cockpit layout it works really well. I don't know what I would change to be honest. We will add clamcleats for the Spinex furlers to inner jib and downwind sails. Whenever I need to do something that requires hands off the tiller the remote for the autopilot is around my neck. When by the tiller I can control the main and jib/gennaker for trim. Of course I can run with a lot more power and smaller margin if one person is manning the jib/gennaker and I only do the tiller and main. With crew of four cockpit is still roomy enough not to get in each others way. When on downwind with jib Combine this with the Bluetooth stereo and Spotify from my waterproof smartphone the boat really turns heads in tight archipelago sailing. :-D Just came home from over 300 nm in six days including test sails - this wouldn't have worked if it wasn't a very good boat. When we headed out six days ago we were still not familiar with the boat.

    12 miles left to Malmö after over 300 miles in six days. https://picasaweb.google.com/113749386683227905034/Seascape27#6010031404673275250

    Another good thing to know when going downwind is that at 11 knots the rudders start singing with a pitch changing with the speed. Awesome stuff to experience.

    Another fun fact about Peters test sail is that we completed it by entering the marina with gennaker and full main up and engine not in the water. Then we reversed up to our slot inside of the other boats on display. Crew of four who had not sailed together before. It is a confidence inspiring vessel to say the least.

    What? Or who?

    Peter, all lines are either right in length or a bit long.:-) We found the reason to the engine tilting/lifting in this boat. The laminate board for the outboard flexes. It has given in but not cracked. Heard from another owner with.same setup tjat he had no issues. It occurred the day before the event, wasn't lile that before. Easy fix. The boat as shown had only sailed to the event. Except for test hoisting sails in Malmö the boat is mostly as delivered. We did this 280 nm run very much as a shakedown. So it is performing well straight out of the box. Only minor adjustments and tweaks done. :-)

    Second time out with the boat, in flat water.

    Here is a pic from Peter (BLUR) with me sailing upwind with gennaker in 6-8 kts wind. Illustrates well how manageable the boat is. Never mind the windex gates, they seem to have come loose - the arrow still points correctly and the gates aren't really necessary since the sails are very communicative.

    Great shots Peter! This little clip is from transport sailing back to Malmö from Gothenburg, currently staying in Falkenberg tonighr. We are three on board today and it is very liveable on board. I have spent the last five days full time living in and sailing this boat. Works very well. Video is 17-20 kts wind with 54 sqm main sail One Sails 4T and a 82 sqm gennaker also from One Sails. Boat speed is 10-14 kts with with thus setting. I am sure we could have squeezed a bit more speed out of her but mostly enjoyed the ride. It was first time for Jens to sail with gennaker and he did very well. Love the feeling how stability increases with speed.
