      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.

    Shakedown #103/Jon Enwright aka The New Guy from Oswego was unstoppable...and won it easily. I was able to salvage a 2nd...4 points ahead or Warped Perception...the boat formerly known as Northern Seitz was 4th. Will post full results and link to photos once I have them...
  4. J/27 rig tensions

    Rig Tensions/Setup are pretty much universal we've found...whether they are Doyle, Quantum, UK or North...some discussions arouind Norht liking the Butt of the mat a bit further foward (i.e. Back of mast 8" forward of the main bulkhead as measured at the butt) Remember the idea is to have neutral helm when sailing totally flat...match the bend of the mast to the curve on the main..

  11. J/27, newbie questions

    Jane... Checked the Wiki...infact you have Hull #20. Would have to see photos of your traverler setup but no, there is no pin to lock the traveller in place. Sounds as if you have a Windward Sheeting Traveller Car so it's only designed to cleat on one side at a time. ... Andrew

    All... Will be putting the 2017 J27 NA Shirt order in no later than next Friday 14 July to ensure delivery/availability. Anyone wanting shirts please e-Mail me quantities and sizes by then. Thanks... Andrew
  13. J/27, newbie questions

    Rick... I assume that you bought Ranger...Hull #111...the Blue Hulled boat; I ask because I saw your membership update on the Wiki and your Hull # was missing a digit...and Hull #111 was the only boat I knew of in Coconut Grove for sale recently. As for your question...drop a message to J Boats at http://jboats.com/contact-us/contact-j-boats and one of the Johnstones will probably get back to you in a day or two. ... Andrew
  14. 2017 J/27 "Stay Classy" Circuit

    All... Now that and we've actually gotten a race under our belts it's time to look forward to the upcoming regattas: You will find registration for all the events is open at https://www.sailreg.ca/regatta/home/reportView.do?id=247&history=clear There is nothing to suggest that any of these events will not go on as planned given Lake Ontario water levels are now subsiding so go ahead and register. And speaking of planning...attached is the mockup for the NAs Shirt; we'll be doing long sleeve tech shirts this year and keeping the price at $15/Shirt. So do also let me know the quantities and sizes of shirts you would like so I can order accordingly. See Ya'll in Port Credit for Round 1 on July 8/9... Andrew
  15. J27 predomonent sailmaker?

    Most are using North...I'm one of the few Quantum guys and get mine from Kerry Klinger out of LIS but Travis in Quantum/Rochester is also designing and making for a couple local boats. Doyle is also an option.
