      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. New/Surplus HALL Carbon masts for sale; Bene 10R, Farr 36

    I know where they have been testing and sailing out of. I can attest the wing can stay up tied to dock in very windy conditions, rotate freely and have no issues moored near other boats. The foiling Ted boat is pretty cool too
  2. ORC and sport boats

    Whats the consensus on how they are treated? Are they punished due to disp/length ratio like IRC? Melges 32, CC30, ID 35, one off euro sport boats etc.
  3. Thompson 35 Rumours/Vida Zee Specs & Info Needed

    Some great memories on that boat. Tim was fun to sail with and had no problem pushing the boat. Just make sure you pump out the water after a long beat before turning the corner and popping the kite! plenty of people in Newport with direct knowledge of mods. will chime in

    Similar issue with mine. Approx 4 years old

    The Handicapper, Bump Wilcox, won't change the 111 rating as he races on one!
  7. NYYC One Design

    Build was to be under 200k. Sail inventory is very limited ie 1 main, 1 jib and 1 kite. B&G triton package and your sailing these boats under 250k?

    Will, The form says water ballast substituting for 4 crew? So is this with water ballast rating or not? You should know, thanks
  9. J 121

    Looks like this is a full crew rating but mentions water ballast replacing 4 crew so anyone's guess https://www.phrf-nb.org/node/12560 You can bet the rating will never go down as j will market it as a great phrf racer

    Does the 30 rating allow for water ballast use? I didn't think phrf Narragansett bay allowed water ballast.
  11. NYYC One Design

    At 8000lbs it's a overbuilt club boat. Will be slower than a melges 32 around the cans. Probably will be offshore capable but better options under 200k I would expect some private owners to use the design but build it custom in carbon.
