      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. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Vestas a touch lower and a touch faster. Really hope they can stay in front of Dong, catching Skally would be nice, too.
  2. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Yep, Dong averaging higher. Slowly chopping that lead down.
  3. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Jesus, Dong 3.5 faster and 11 degrees lower. Is Vestas missing a sail?
  4. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    I'm confused, are y'all able to see Scally's DTF while they're in stealth mode?
  5. Historical Weather Data

    Thanks guys, that should be very helpful.
  6. Historical Weather Data

    Hello, I'm curious if anyone knows where to find historical GRIB files and/or current files on the NOAA website, or else where. I've heard Stan Honey talking about being able to pull it from NOAA's website, but I can find it for the life of me. I'm doing my first big(ish) offshore race this summer. We have a great navigator running the show, but I'm curious to check out the planning/routing side of it my self. I did talk to the nav, he wasn't sure where to find them, I think he's done the trip enough that he has them in his head. Mostly looking for the Eastern half of the Gulf of Mexico. Appreciate the help.
  7. Front Page Mac 26 3ksb

    Just want to clear this issue up, the Mac 26 is NOT a 3 knot shit box! Peace of shit? Yes, but not at 3 knts. We have one here in Nola that cleans up in perf, in breeze sees low to mid teens. With a couple more on the way, we might even have a growing one design fleet emerging. Long live the Macgregor!
  8. AC36 Protocol - Ask Dalts

    Interested to here this one, when's it going to drop?
  9. My newest project

    I think you can also import a gpx track from your gps into raceq's.
  10. My newest project

    Ever used RaceQ's? It's free, you can use the gps from your phone, don't need cell service, and you get some pretty good analytics. You can display it live(with cell), or just upload it when your done and rewatch everything. I've used it to help get some base numbers on old 1/4 tonners and a Proa where we didn't have much data to start with.
  11. The Four Carbon Cutters project

    I get keeping the transom clear, but I was thinking these guys aren't too worried about the cost of a larger backstay at this point...
  12. The Four Carbon Cutters project

    Are the split backs for a square top main? Awesome boat, can't wait to see it with sails up.
  13. J24 52xx US Watercraft BLISTERING

    I'm sure the bottom paint didn't come from Waterline, and was applied by a PO.
  14. Cheap Bastard Anarchy

    and I say cheap bastard in the most enduring way. Who's got better? *apologies if this thread already exists, I couldn't find one with more that a few replies.
  15. Live Racing Thread

    Are they pointing higher, or is Artemis loosing leeway with the smaller foils?
