      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. Seascape 18 outboard

    Try the Honda 2.3hp 4 stroke air cooled short shaft. 12.7kg. A bit noisier than water cooled but saves the bother of having to flush it through with fresh water after use.
  2. IRC Rating Impacts

    going down 12 points from 1.013 to 1.001 between standard IRC rating to endorsed rating seems a bit wrong. Either your measurer is wrong or your current rating is incorrect.
  3. ORC Sportboat class for SD NOODS

    ORC will issue a rating for the VX ONE. The Seascape 18 at 5.5m in Europe has on ORC club rating. Check out www.orc.org and you will see when you search for certificates issed.
  4. Seascape 18

    Nope. I'm looking for a trailer sailer to race Wed. nights does the SSC 18 have a PHRF rating (at all, or some other rating system # that can be transposed to PHRF) for North America/PNW? Anyone? Here: http://www.gya.org/documents/phrf/PHRFList.pdf Seascape 18 also has an ORC rating check out list on www.orc.org.
  5. ORC certificate

    obviously, boats optimize for ORC, as they do for any rule.., but it's worth considering at first that unlike IRC.., ORC is not designed to be a type-forming rule. that is, within certain design parameters, ORC attempts to rate boats "fairly" IRC explicitly does not attempt to do this, rather in a relative sense IRC purposely gives rating credits to design features the rule likes, and penalties to design features it doesn't like. so, one might argue that for most boats, optimization is less important under ORC than under IRC Well said us7070 it is about time we are all able to race under a fair handicap system like ORC which rates the boat only for its performance, unlike IRC, with its secret non transparent rule, selects what boats they like and who they like in giving ratings to. ORC is so much fairer than IRC in being transparent, cheaper to rate, unnecessary to optimise to the extent as under IRC and able to rate both displacement and planing designs equally so the can compete together in handicap racing.
