      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.

    Black isn't an option anymore. Only white hulls from the factory. If anyone really, really wants one now, I'm open to selling hull 3 located in central CT. PM me

    Ill get mine this weekend! Spoke to Dave and there will be new rudder heads coming for the first few boats. Hope to get out for a blast with Dave on Sunday afternoon for a maiden sail

    For the guys doing the HDPO, what's the deal with needing to carry $300k work of insurance to do the event? 14. INSURANCE Each participating boat shall be insured with valid third-party liability insurance with a minimum coverage of US $300,000 per event or the equivalent. A copy of insurance company documents establishing such coverage, current through the end of the regatta, shall be supplied as part of completing registration and check in.

    I'm in. Will get my registration done soon. We should work out a practice weekend or 2 prior to the event

    Block Island is around 19 miles from Newport, and less than 50 from many other cheaper areas to launch and store boats. Even though the island is expensive, access is easy. HUGE difference from KW

    The alternatives are already there. It's easier to do a season in the Caribbean going to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and Antigua. Dockwise is already set up and the logistics costs are split between events. Part f the problem with KW now that SORC is gone is the lack of other events to do. Huge cost for a one and done. As much as I'll miss KW, the Caribbean events are better sailing and more fun

    I wrote the checks.......

    In the mod-2000's, KW was a 50k event for a decent 40' program. That's an expensive week. We also needed to ask 10 guys, mostly Cat 1's to give up 10 days to do the event. That's 50% of the average american worker's vacation time. No small feat. At the time in Newport, there was also a thriving big bat scene. Today, it's just not there. Not enough owners willing to part with their money at that particular rate. It's more fun to fly to St. Maarten and rent a bumper boat.......
  10. STC Block Island Race...who's In

    Can't find a tracker. Does STC not do these things?? At least the race should be dry-ish.....
  11. Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    I'll go if my boat is ready. Thought I'd be doing the dingy distance race this weekend, but no boat to float........
  12. Megabyte v. RS Feva

    Second the Weta for you. Does everything you want, is faster, and has some used boats in the southern US right now. You should be able to get a good used one for about 8500
  13. Looking for crew for a V70....

    Starts in October. Leg 0 is a sprint Aicante to Lisbon, then Lisbon to Cape Town. Leg 0 will be an interesting leg
  14. Volvo 70... where are they ? Any for sale?

    Green Dragon is for sale. I can put you in touch with the owner if you're serious.
  15. Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    Yes, and fully support HPDO. Maybe we can convince Cedar Point to let us in the one design regatta?
