      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.

  3. Sportboats under ORC handicap Racing in CharlestonRW 2017 // Wraceboat

    yes it is. thus heavier and more drag thus slower boat than other Wraceboats GP26s. Still performs well in high winds though...specially upwind.they finished 3rd in last years GP26 Class racing in Charleston in a fleet of 5 boats under ORC handicap, all other 4 being outboards...
  4. ORC rule was implemented as the principal handicap rule for the Charleston Race Week 2017, it was the first time the system was used in a major North American regatta. Thirty boats raced in four separate ORC Classes at this event One of the most competitive fleets was ORC C. The fleet consisted of f 9 boats, SR33, Melges 32, Melges 30, Heno 30, 2X Farest28Rs, and 3GP26s. USA2604 Michael Beasley and Team Rattle and Rum won the event with a comfortable margin. the results are here Overall, the ORC rating system seemed to work well... More often only a few seconds were the deciding factor between the corrected times... The overall award for the best performance in an ORC Class went also to Mike Beasley and his Annapolis-based crew of Joe Gibson, Ted and Joanna Harland, Scott Gibbs and Ty Van Dalen... Beasley and his crew were awarded the prestigious and historic Palmetto Cup for winning the tightest class in the handicap divisions. We are very happy to see the boat performing well under ORC rating. Hope it will get more popularity in the USA, as this will lead to exciting racing with some fast boats... Congratulations to Eagles Eye (FE28) and Short Bus (Henderson 30) as well as all other teams competing... photocredit: CharlestonRaceWeek; TimWilkes Photography Attached Thumbnails

    Congratulations to USA2604 Michael Beasley and Team Rattle and Rum winning the Charleston Race week 2017 ORC C with a comfortable margin. the results are here From what I hear our other GP26's had their good races, (and not so good races) as well...But all had a good time... Overall, the ORC rating system seemed to work well... More often only a few seconds were the deciding factor between the corrected times... ORC C was a very competitive fleet with 9 boats, SR33, Melges 32, Melges 30, Heno 30, 2X Farest28Rs, and 3GP26s The overall award for the best performance in an ORC Class went also to Mike Beasley and his Annapolis-based crew of Joe Gibson, Ted and Joanna Harland, Scott Gibbs and Ty Van Dalen...

  9. Donovan GP26 starts production in Turkey

    It must be Round the Island Race Havoc 2611 finished 4th/54 in ATI results are here. behind a 49er and 2 Trapeze Magic26s. Havoc was also 3rd in Sportboat Class. results are here That would be the one. (Magic 25 not 26) on the contrary, it was the Wraceboats GP26 that impressed... Racing boat to boat with trapezed Magics is not that logical in the first hand but Team Havoc is learning and getting faster with more time on boat, they can already beat some Magics except the top 2 in Magic class...

  11. Donovan GP26 starts production in Turkey

    Dave, DonovanGP 26s are produced by Wraceboats (except Kevin Farrars hull0). We have 11 boats sailing around the World, 8 in Usa, 1 in Norway, 2 in Hong Kong. These are semi-production boats... Details at www.wraceboats.comBrooks Dees GP26 is another design of the same box rule. one off production. GP26 is like TP52 box rule...

    TBone, Lucy is configured for Square top. There has been only one Class Race Start and that was in Charleston in 2016. Jim Designed the boat for the Box rule, but the boats have been optimised for best performance in their local PHRF fleets. And it was important in the beginning without much class racing to show the boats potential... Particularly this was the case in KW in ORC2 against F28, FE28... Results are here The boat is much better performer with bigger sail area than class legal and class legal crew weight. In Charleston we used ORC rating and it worked fine. We have discussions with the owners for going one design and/or Class racing with limiting sail sizes... Better owners reply to their feeling about the non-uniformity, some are active in SA from time to time...
