      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. J111 Sailing on the Great Lakes--Summer 2016

    Welcome Hrothgar. I know Karl the fleet captain either has or is planning to send out a schedule but i know we are planning to do the Colors regatta, the NOOD/NAs and then the verve for sure. There will also be some other weekends of Belmont one design. We wont be doing the Mac or Harbor Springs as we are headed to Cowes for Worlds but i would guess they will be well attended by 111s.
  2. Chicago Area III

    To get back from the Ugotta, we are chartering a piper chieftain plane back Chicago Exec from Harbor Springs leaving Sunday night July 27th at 7pm eastern. It seats 7 and we have 4 so three seats are available. If you would like a seat please PM me. It will be $500 each.

    About 300 is really the number. Not 500.

    In fact, within a 4 week period, a travelling J/111 could participate in the Chicago Mac, the Harbor Springs Ugotta Regatta, the Chicago Yacht Club Verve Cup (which will be used as pre-NA's, and the NA's themselves. All ONE DESIGN starts.

    The 2013 J/111 North American Championships (hopefully worlds, if we can get some European teams to come) have been granted to Chicago Yacht Club to be held at its Belmont Station, August 15-18, 2013. We are sorting out the details, but wanted to get the date out to people as soon as possible, so they can make plans. At this point we know that free dockage will be available to the out of town boats for the event, and the the Verve cup the weekend prior. Much more information to follow. Please join us!

    I note that your C0 doesnt tack at the full extension of the pole. Our North C0 designed last year does. Did you request this or did they change the standard design?

    Actually, here's my plan after giving it some thought: remove the stop. make one carbon arm, pointing aft, attach it directly to the rudder axis (oval - will try to get a drawing). Then it would be easy to set two new stops as endpoints for that arm? \\BTW - its interesting that the euro boats have carbon rudder posts. Ours appears to be aluminum.

Then it would be easy to set two new stops as endpoints for that arm? You plan sounds like it would work much like ours. In looking at your picture, you might want to give some thought to mounting the carbon arm to the two square tabs on the quadrant where the steering cable turns in from the turnbuckles. It appears you could drill through those tabs and make a Y shaped arm that attaches to them. Just a thought as attaching ours to the quadrant worked out very well.

    Too bad.. it works well for us. You should probably use the edson arm then.

    On Kashmir, we started by buying the premade aluminum tiller arm from edson. It would work fine and you should check out their website. We ended up not using it and having Blair Ross make us two simple carbon plates that bolt on to the back of the quadrant itself. We have a raymarine setup that is completely removable so that the only thing on the boat while we are racing are the two 6 oz carbon attachment plates and the drive unit mounting bracket. Its a great setup. edasner, If you could post photographs, that would be great. Cheers Jem No drawings but here is a pic. You could have Blair make you a set. You can reach him directly at Blair@sscomposites.com

    There is no 111 class racing yet, all irc and I recall the winter series allows irc crew limit+2. Generally pays to be as heavy as possible in winter series as its generally stronger winds. Ugotta Regatta on Lake Michigan last July had 5 J111's in their own class We had 6 J/111 racing OD there and at the Verve Cup in Chicago. Also 6 in the Chicago Mac.
