      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. Based on 14 years of PHRF racing on a J 80, if you truly race in +10 you are fine with your OD jib. If you get under 10 you need to consider a genoa- this is our situation. I would go with a 135 +/-, not the 150 or 155. If you are racing point to point not L/W consider getting a 3A spinnaker, it will not run quite as well as the 2A, but reach a lot better. If you want to go crazy, get a code 0- might not come out of the bag for 2 years, but when it does, it can be magic. Regardless of which headsail you use, if you are racing point to point you will need to develop a way to move the lead out board and forward for non spinnaker reaching.
  2. J105 distance race

    I stand corrected- sail on.
  3. J105 distance race

    Not going to get involved in the 155 vs code debate- but I always thought the 105 was NOT designed for an overlapping genoa. I knew the J 92 was - did not think the 105 was also.
  4. need help naming J88

    Sorry I missed the contest- but for someone in their mid 60's who's interests include running, sailing, wine, and who recently crashed a Porsche at Watkins Glen- the name should be: "Forever Young" Have fun.
