      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. 2016 "Gotland Runt"

    http://www.ksss.se/en/AFOR/Map/ This is by far the best tracker I have ever seen, it's live and updates every five seconds.
  2. Such a complete waste of money, time & effort. Time to move on.
  3. Club Swan 50

    Somehow I think arriving in a Swan 65 is likely to get one invited to a few good parties on the Riv. - or elsewhere.. Exactly. Swan European Regatta, Caribbean Rally, Swan Club parties. (They used to have an American regatta but stupidly did away with it ). But in general it is hard to out do Swan owner support and social scene. At the end of the day it's an active distance racing crowd for all models and owners. 45 is a great boat. Won overall in the Bermuda and Sydney Hobart races. 42 Swanabees are not even in he same discussion. More like building to a disposable one design coastal brief. A Cadillac built in a converted Mexican factory. They will be replaced in 7-8 yrs and hard to find in 20. Did the Swan Atlantic on Nantucket in the early 90's on Indulgence, best regatta I ever sailed in.
  4. Dick Carter design boats

    That building in shot # 3 got to be the Royal Swedish YC (Sandhamn) in the background.
  5. Older well known IOR Boats

    Bondi Tram, the Frers 42 from three decades ago is for sale in Hawaii, good looking boat. That's from Yachtworld.

    Wasn't the owner of Obsession Stephen Nichols out of Ct & Andrew from Alabama the owner of "Abracadabra"? maybe a charter.

    These were and are upwind machines, both the X-102's and X-3/4 Tons.

    Agape Too II --> Sistership to "Robin" and/or "Knock On wood"?
  10. Older well known IOR Boats

    Serious Boat porn, one of the coolest period of yacht racing.
  11. Older well known IOR Boats

    Three times around, I think not. That's the short course (roughly) for the ILYC distance race.

    Looks like a Baltic 43 isn'it ? Not a 43, clearly a C & C , 39' maybe.

    G & S 3/4 Ton Maybe?
  14. Some of my old sailing photos 2

    Thanks Larry! Will be sharing this with her current owner. Way cool boat, wonder why Pedrick designed her to look like a Baltic. Maybe, he worked for DP at some time (I thougth he was a S&S guy).

    So I guess that the "Fujimo" tale of "F.. you Jane I'm moving out" from the Frers 50 tale is/was total bs.
