      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. That will be interesting to watch, the skipper of the second boat is Andraz. I'd love to have some info on the sail configuration and speeds of both boats. Fair winds ! BTW. On last weeks Geneve-Rolle-Geneve the Saphire 27 of Tobler was competing and did quite well >http://www.ycg.ch/La-Geneve-Rolle_458.html
  2. Windfinder says 2-6 kts until thursday, lets hope for some more wind post some pics ; )
  3. Let's get back on topic, don't feed the trolls. Any news on sail geometry, quotes etc.?
  4. LST, We most certainly did. It was an EPIC experience. I've documented a lot of it here in Cruising Anarchy, you can read the tread here. http://forums.sailin...howtopic=144187 If you have any question, ask away. We want one, badly. Hi jackdaw Nice write-up, makes me drool ; )) Unfortunately the Pogo 12.5 is way out of reach for me, but surely on my list to charter ! Just need to convince my buddies. Did you order one at Structures already ? Last time i talked to them (Dusseldorf fair), it seemed the waiting list is already long. I plan to test sail the Pogo 30 in spring. Fair winds LST
  5. Hi jackdaw have you chartered with fastsailing ? can you share your experience ? we got overhauled by a pogo 12.5 last autumn around Amorgos, we wished to have to been on that boat ! cheers
  6. @ Overserved The roller furler line is attached to a rubber strap / shackle / block (from the side of the cockpit) so you can operate it easily from there. @ oioi send me your preferred email address and i'll be able to send them to you
  7. I too have a bib for the SSC27 and actually have one coming. So you now know how I feel. I think overall total concept and design the 27 is great. I have sailed the J70 and think it is a great little boat and having a one design background i think the 70 fits a great niche for a lot of sailors, although a bit expensive, but better than a M20 and more versatile. But I also think the 70 will struggle in some handicap fleets. 1. SSC27 2. J70 3. B/One What did you think of the 27 in light air? I too have a bib for the SSC27 and actually have one coming.

We had the feeling that TWS could be attained without too much effort upwind.. I was positively surprised how reactiv she felt. Inspite of the broad transom, no feeling of being glued to the water. Downwind thats when the fun starts ; )) I'll tell you more when i have mine in the water.
  8. Well, i'm biased since i drool for the SSC... (and i sailed only the SSC just for a short time in light winds) but still the competition is stiff, B/One could be a winner, when the jury wants to promote an accessible OD, J70 is more expensive, but must be loads of fun, SSC is the most versatile, with maybe the best hull shape for the program IMO. My bet: 1. SSC27 2. J70 3. B/One now you ; )) PS: I don't think there's a ranking, only a winner...
  9. EYOTY Decision will be announced on january 19 .. bets anyone ?
  10. underwater docking for a nuclear submarine? surely is practical for discreet plutonium fuel trafficking. i have such misfortune..caught on here on a 27 feet racing machine..with naughty crew who put me exactly where they want me so badly..on a position no. one to six..a chick handy for all.. exposed to gusts of storm blowing.. have no idea exactly what view they get from cabin out to cockpit ..on an only chick among us you've been taking drugs AGAIN
  11. Hey alsi What did you get number wise ? I would have thought the SSC27 would be a bit worse than the esse 850. Can you share the numpers you put in ? I don't know he mesurements of the sails, so i didn't bother to try to get a SRS Rating. Thanks
  12. sailing is quite addictive ...i guess i'm not the only one
  13. Andraz Thank you for clarifying. Some more questions: Deck layout: i reckon you have installed an easier system for the genoa/staysail sheet (inhauler /outhauler) ? Some pics ? How many were you on board for this race ? Boat weight: Where could you reduce 100 kg ? from the hull, or in the interior equipment ? What will be the final racing weight ? (still with 4 berths and a chemical toilet) ?
  14. Thanks Kristian for this write-up and congrats. Hope we normal pleasure sailors can come close to these speeds... As for the crappy staysail, was the sail in the beginning of your trials OK (from July to October), and then degenerated from heavy use.. or was it a new one (trials with One Sails) that proved to be not optimal ? Fair winds
  15. new video on the website of Voiles et Voiliers (in french). eventually you have to be a "member" to access the vid. so in short the say: nice fast boat, with a huge potential concerning speed, stability, seaworthiness.. but can't comment on the finished product since they sailed the proto (oh really ?), so they commented on the proto; which was more or less empty inside and some other things like water remains in the pit of the motor.. www.voilesetvoiliers.com/essais-et-comparatifs/essai-croisiere-cotiere-rapide-seascape-27-la-fusee-slovene-video/
