      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. North sails ,pricing, discounts

    The big difference you will see is a little weight (not much) but mainly you will notice the feel of the sail is different and the Endurance seems stiffer. The stiffness comes from the "non-woven" exterior that the endurance has on it. Nowadays most race sails are Raw and the boats that do offshore order the endurance... unless you are Comanche or wild oats who don't care and want a lighter sail you can replace sooner. I was on a boat that did many offshore races and used the same main for 4 years before we noticed the shape starting to change.
  2. PV Race

    I see the issue, its the other guys have the tools and we don't syndrome. That's like complaining that a different boat has a spinnaker we don't have.
  3. PV Race

    Ah you are missing the key point, respect to a specific boat This means a boat cannot be receiving weather that others do not have access to. Everyone has access to the same Perdictwind and Sailflow GRIBS if they pay the fee. Perdictwind isn't writing a GRIB for just one boat, i.e. having a weather team. If Predict Wind was sending one GRIB to a boat then issuing a different GRIB to everyone else there would be a big issue. I know for a fact that fan's boat will receive a pre-dock out report from commanders weather, then you can call commanders before the start to get an update... why is this ok but a GRIB is not?
  4. I'm helping with the video so I'll make sure we add the helm shots to the list. It helps to know what you want.
  5. moving up from a 420

    Where you live there are great Scow fleets as well as a great J22 fleet at Lake Minnetonka
  6. How Fast can a Snipe go?

    I have raced snipes for years, even in the gorge. Because of the flat bottom chines, the spray seems larger than normal. I'll but good money on 12-14 knots max, you are lucky that with the pole up and stuffing the bow you didn't invert and break the mast! see the pic of us in 2002 on a reach and how big the spray is
  7. Flying Tiger

    I think if people have added a Frac they did it as an external Halyard. The West Coast USA boats only used it for Distance Races.
  8. Physical Training

    Crossfit, We started doing it with Pegasus Racing back in 2001 before anyone knew what crossfit was. Go check it out. since you are using it to train for another sport, don't feel like you need to compete while training.
