      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. Are J/24s Still Fun?

    After five years sailing sport-boats handicap and in the occasional 5 boat OD fleet locally I threw in the towel and purchased a J22, - i'm having fun getting whipped up on. Follow the herd. If your local herd races J24's get on and you will have fun. J24 will also give you some options for traveling to large OD regattas where the level of competition is still humbling. You'll be amazed at how difficult it is to drive a J24 after driving a higher-performance boat. You'll also be surprised at how much better you are at racing the high performance boat after you spend some sailing the J24 J70 sailors think J24's are slow Viper and VX sailors think J70s are slow Cat sailors think vipers and VX one's are slow moth sailors think everything except moths are slow folks who own motor boats think all sailors are crazy for working so hard to go so slow
  2. ha, only one way to find out.
  3. How about we organize an event where we boat swap after each race. That would be pretty entertaining.
  4. Viper 640 for sale

    Dat the HO?
  5. VX Evo

    Hull number 13, on its way to Texas.
  6. Double dammed on a VX would be epic.
  7. VX Evo

    Perfect.... I've been looking for an excuse to buy that 250k protector, now i have one.. (assuming there's no rule against a tow to land and back).
  8. VX Evo

    ah let's not do that
  9. 2017 Centerboard Circuit of Texas

    still one of the coolest looking boats on the water. @ rod, get me a quick sail so I can tell my wife I actually tried it... then send an order form.
  10. VX Evo

    Probably need to get a few solid season of racing in before any decisions? Hey there's a selling point for being an early adopter; you get to be part of the decision making process. Has anyone sailed two-up yet?
  11. VX Evo

    That would be my preference - commit and live with it. @ rod - is that fleet price valid with a C or A sail in lieu of a B sail? Is there a limit to boats available at this price? I have at least two very active friends who want to demo and will probably jump in.

    Rod, I've seen your name on North U posters and think you are hired to coach pretty often. Do you think you'd be willing to run some free clinics on the evo for folks who jump into the fleet? Maybe some at Rush creek but also some at other clubs? I think from a fleet building perspective helping everyone improve and learn is really important. I'll bring the beer.
