      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.

    "In those first few hours in the water, DeRyan had been lying on her back, meditating and doing a breathing exercise to stay buoyant. She focused on keeping her core warm so that the heat would circulate to her extremities." Isn't that the Wim Hof method for cold water swimming?
  2. Grainger Raider 302

    Fuck yea Pear Shaped Racing! Stoked to see you guys back at it
  3. Is the Canada's Cup going to be sailed this summer on another class or is the next one not until 2020?
  4. Ridiculously Overpriced Boats

    Don's an absolute legend! I hear he's still kicking around KYC but sails alot less these days due to his age. Thanks for the history - its a cool story of an iconic boat
  5. Ridiculously Overpriced Boats

    Is Bagatelle a MK I? I remember her owner telling me a story about how she was one of two built for the 1969 Canada's Cup but never performed well in sea trials so was not chosen to be the defender. Does that make the local Vancouver redline, Bedlam II, the one that won the cup?

    lets see em up in the air flying! Have you decided anything for the a kite?
  9. Sodebo foiling

    Would there be a benefit for Sodebo in light air to use the windward foils to induce heel/ lift the float, while retracting the leeward foils to reduce drag?

    Great write up Ballard Sailor! Those Moore's sure were pesky (fast) all weekend.
  11. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Good to see FB asking the tough questions

    Depends where you look eh? Consensus at least seems to be a good breeze, jury's still out about sun though.
  13. Craigslist - Not mocking

    Ever since reading about Chris Bray and Jess Taunton's trip through the NW Passage on Teleport I've thought these North Atlantic 29's were a cool design. This one might be a bit overpriced for what it is though. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/boa/d/1980-bounty-north-atlantic/6369887388.html

    Also move all that weight out of the ass and get the bow down. Its a ULDB, the bow guys supposed to wear a snorkel.
  15. Gitana 17 on Foils

    I still don't understand why this is a good thing, why would you want to have one foil acting as a break against the other lifting foils? Also i can't find the post but I thought you said that Guillaume Verdier was worried about the down force loads ripping Maserati apart and that though capable it was never used in that capacity.
