      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. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    X 24 OD Class bring your J 24 and remove the od stuff and Genoa..2018 Delta Ditch Run registration is now open
  2. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    All IC 24’s are welcome to to race with the X 24 fleets as of February 1st. 2018. This was considered because Boats like the Santana 20 and Moore 24 have new decks and can race OD. All forestay lengths are unmeasured. The IC 24 dry boat weight 2550# is a potential benchmark for the X 24.
  3. J70, cheating and pros

    "If you ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin"
  4. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    https://goo.gl/images/aMvNhC This is all you need for a X 24 forestay. This gives you the extra forestay length to get the appropriate rake and weather helm.
  5. Sailing is cheap

    X 24 made out of cheap non optimized J 24’s. Good used sails cheap. No Genoa’s to replace. 3 crew requires less beer...X X
  6. Why don't more people race?

    Sounds like an X 24 would cure a lot of the problems of cost, crew and complexity. Plus damn near everyone has sailed one.
  7. Swing-Retractable Keels

    Tartan 27 or Pearson Triton keel centerboard.
  8. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    Holes filled, looking for ideas on bridle mainsheet? Rope bridle and headknocker block? Or longer traveler track?
  9. downwind boat speed

    Use heel to minimize rudder angle. Go to Cal 20 class site for pics of DW mast fwd. boats.

  11. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

  12. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    Wood dowels and Gorilla Glue to fil the bolt holes. Next Kiwi Deck Paint and Bridle main sheet and headlnocker.
  13. Free J24 hull, keel & trailer

    X 24 fleet parts boat. Looks like Tweekers got to it. Saw blades, labor and dump fees ugh.
