      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.

    Exactly. It looks run of the mill now, but look at other race boats from 1978 and you can see what the big deal is

    Is it just me or is the guy in the wipeout pic bench pressing the fucking tiller?

    These two threads must be in the running for the greatest collection of sailing photos of all time

    Beautiful boat. Hard to believe that it was home built in West System. Robin Absolutely gorgeous boat, care to elaborate any more info on it?
  6. J/111 Goes Sailing...

    This seems to be the picture painted by the various distance racing 111's around who have experienced hard reaching conditions with a kite up such as Blast in the Marblehead to Halifax Race (who rounded up numerous times in 12 kts just off the beam while trying to carry a kite), the account above and my personal experience with the boat. Apparently they broke their rudder, although I guess it wasn't fitted properly from the factory
