      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. AP on shore. Lake is glass
  2. Where is the Cone right now?
  3. Thanks for the feedback. I'm leaning toward a simple two unit display with the velocitek up front. I'm still not sure about the wireless vs wired- obviously wireless for weight, but is that cord enough that you cant make it up for reliability. We also have two transducers, which I want down to one. Thanks again.
  4. What are people replacing their original instrument packages with or using these days? Mostly windward leeward OD racing, very few long distance races. Currently have a nexus 4 display, speed wheel and transducer thru holes bow side of the keel. We currently also use a velocitek. How far can we scale back on it all, what are others using? Thanks
  5. Any boats for sale currently?
  6. Thanks for the responses. The Zim is an interestingl option. I like, however may be a bit collegiate. RS Vision has come up along with the V15, but the cat option is intriguing. This fleet would have to foster the new college grads, the father/mother son/daughter team, possibly big boat racers who want another quick option and fun fleet. Its a full range looking to get people sailing, develop skills and eventually be worth something for club champs.
  7. Looking for some recommendations based on the following parameters: -Double handed -Trapeze? (not yet necessary) -Spinnaker -Have to have new boats available -Priced within reason (<$20K) -Can be dry sailed on a dolly -One design This idea is based purely on engagement, getting people on the water, the critical mass promoting competition- which will hopefully be fairly high.
  8. Second the Riptide. That boat does everything well. And its unique, so you can take that conversation to the bar.
  9. I know Sail Sheboygan is well funded, but all 67K should be re-routed to these cats. Great video.
  10. Why is there so much volume at the top end of the rudder? Wouldn't a more vertical leading edge present less drag?
  11. Having raced quite a bit on Lake Ontario I was pleased to see such a great turnout for the open. That being said, having occasionally asked for something other than windward leeward racing I'm wondering how the trapezoid course was received by the racers? Was RC up to the challenge?
