      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.

    Enjoyed the race guys. Yeah, turns out South of BI was a lemon on the way out. Kind of hopeful on the way back but we lost another 8 miles or so. You guys always looked lower and faster. Well done - see ya down south.
  2. Newport -Bermuda 2016

    Wishing all that started well. Not an easy decision for us to withdraw but the risks just seemed unacceptable. Likely everything will be fine but a cut off low over warm water can go nuclear pretty quickly. Let's keep it positive for those that went and respect the decisions of those teams that passed.
  3. Newport -Bermuda 2016

    No boats started in the Gibbs Hill Class.
  4. Newport -Bermuda 2016

    I'd say 25% of the fleet is DNS.
  5. List of all Gunboats built

    All done - on the way to FL as we speak. She's a pretty spicy meatball with the new rig.....
  6. 50th Newport-Bermuda Race...who's going?

    Could not agree more. Like the other classics (Transpac, Syd/Hob, Fastnet, Middle Sea) this race needs one division and one overall winner. Sometimes it would be a pure race boat but most of the time, due to the nature of the race, it would be a medium or low speed C/R. ORR is a truly terrible rule when it comes to modern race boats. The sad part is the CCA could care less. Want to make it relevant again? One division with canters in their own class, allow multi's, scrap ORR. Do that or keep seeing it fade as fewer and fewer race boats enter. Overall entry numbers without counting true race boats and international teams is a flawed metric.

    Big weekend for GC 32 Flipping. No dramas or damage for us ether.

    Way more!

    Yep

    I think it's time to rename the thread "Ker 43 Otra Vez"

    Nice one of the yacht in her original livery.
  12. Ker 43 Ptarmigan

    The whole boat was originally finished off in clear coat - including the bottom and foils. Why? For a dry sailed boat we felt that was the way to go. Regretted not ending it at the waterline soon enough though....

    I knew you'd say that
  14. Falcon, Tripp/Goetz 50 on Craigslist

    I was pretty close to the boat in the Cabo Race when they broke the topmast off in fairly heavy running.

    No, a charter later in the year is the only thing on the horizon.
