      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. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Any predictions on how far east he gets before getting spit back out?!?!
  2. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Ya - I will bet the boys at S. Francis would be pretty stoked to have him come in for a beer....... (in his blazer and ascot of course).....
  3. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    no, he's still too far away. he will be lucky if he passes that by sunset. Whoops - my mistake... I changed the view on the Farallones cam but I think it is a static pic (not live feed) like the SF cams....

    I just changed views and I think we can see him!
  5. Older well known IOR Boats

    In the very first pic of Cofica (post 547 - by IanW) it would appear that they are sailing with both running backs on?!?! One is slightly eased compared to the other.... Can anyone explain this (or why they are doing this) to me.... Just wondering if I am missing some kind of old school trimming "trick"....

    See cms' post # 310 Was looking for more in addition to the 83 stuff. (85?) But thanks for pointing me back - I did miss it!

    There is a bow-gal in our fleet that has lost two teeth (on two different occasions) to spinnaker poles.... She just heads off to the dentist to get them put back together, and she looks as good as new! Tough as nails!

    Whoops... My mistake. I misread the above attachment.... The text in the attachment makes reference to the 84 One Ton Cup - not AC. It mentions that there was 2 boats named Fair Lady and Faire Lady. Both Beneteau IOR One Tons. Also mentions that there were 2 more boats, both named Coyote?!?! And both of these were also Beneteau IOR One Tons. Does any of our European buddies know the details or the histories of these? I guess my understanding at this point is that there are two 1984 versions and two 1985 versions. One of each are still in Europe and one of each were sent to North America. Anyone know what the differences are and which were sent over to NA?? Also if names were changed, too what?? I love to hear the history of these boat, and I am sure you can guess why.... Also FYI - one of these are for sail in the SA classifieds (Godspeed) for a pretty reasonable price!

    is there a page for the American team in that program? Would love to see that if possible. On the off chance that you are taking requests, would you happen to have the 84 version of the French/France page?!?! Thanks in advance!!

    I have heard conflicting statements that this boat (Fair Lady / Fiere Lady) went on to become MOONRAKER....? Any info? Lettering and paint looks the same in this brochure...

    RE COYOTE There must be a sister ship in Europe. We go past COYOTE every Friday here in Hawaii at the Ali Wai Fuel Dock. There is no black on it though?!?! My understanding is that she came straight from San Francisco to Hawaii. Third attachment is racing in San Francisco..... Forth shot is very recent in Hawaii..... cheers!

    MOONRAKER in Larry's photo - Beneteau One Ton IOR My understanding of the history of this boat.... (please correct, or add) Designer: Barret/Fauraux/Finot Builder: Beneteau France 1984 12 were built and several were raced (quite successfully) by France in the (84?) Admiral's Cup. Half of them were packed up and shipped to the US to kickstart Beneteau's entry into racing markets in North America. 1) Fair Lady was sent to Detroit where its name was changed to Moonraker. She was fairly prominent in the Detroit fleet. She was recently sold and is now racing in San Diego. 2) Coyote was sent to San Francisco and she was also quite visible in the San Francisco racing scene (B. Trouble?!?). Now located in Hawaii... 3) Advantage was sent to Detroit/Chicago. Was less successful than Moonraker 4) Air Mail sent to Chesapeake B. were she is still raced today 5) God Speed (possibly this boat formerly had name Glory?!?!) now located in Texas (and is currently listed in the SA Classifieds) Any more info on these boats would be much appreciated!!
