      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.

  2. u20 spar weight

    I seem to remember the tin rig comes in around 50 #'s. I550sailor has the difference about right. for what its worth, tin rigs finished 1,2,3,4 at this years PCC's in San Fran. Short chop and blowing 15 gusting to 20 first 2 days.
  3. Best boat for light air lake sailing

    Watched them for years at Whidbey Island RW get pounded in the lite stuff..ugh Colorado PHRF trophy - Ultimate 20 7 years straight. Lake sailing light shifty winds, the results don't lie. Never sailed in the PNW so I don't know why the results are so different. You know any of these guys? 2004 WIRW Bob Aman Rogue Ultimate 20 12th place Bob Miles Slingshot Ultimate 20 15th place 2005 WIRW Mike Schott U 20 12th place I know Bob Aman - great sailor. I think 2004 was the first year he had his boat. Don't know about the other 2.

  5. Best boat for light air lake sailing

    Without a doubt, Ultimate 20. Great in light air. Add a code 0 and it is a terror. Consistently beats 30 footers. Can ramp launch. One Design fleet for when you are sick of winning in PHRF.

    Here is Celebration as of this April. Seen at Cove Marina in Norwalk CT Also the Container: Same guy own the Lotus Esprit too? Dude's living in his own time warp! She was for sale last year on Craigslist for $5000. Friend of mine hopped on board and I guess she was rather trashed. The boat was owned by Bruce and Pat Clark who had the boat built for the Admirals cup. The design brief was for a scaled up version of their very successful New York 36. Have fond memories of this boat as it was the one that got me into racing. Did the block island race on this boat back in the mid 80's and have never been so cold in my life.
