      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. Congratulations Your Mom on another win. I had a really good race finishing 298th with no options.
  2. The one in Toronto is/was in Whitby. It was still at Whitby Yacht Club at the end of July.
  3. What does it rate?
  4. HaHa .. Haven't the Brits solved that problem yet? Yes, they stopped making cars.
  5. Lynyrd Skynyrd That Smell
  6. I always liked this version:
  7. Nordica 16 http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=4034sounds close to what you want if you can find one. You did say slow and safe,it will be slow and if it is anything like the Nordica 20 it will be very slow and very safe.
  8. It is PHRF-LO, Lake Ontario, it covers all of Lake Ontario.
  9. Looks like it will be boats from the east end of the lake, 8 metres and R - Boats.I will be on the R - Boat Gypsy.
  10. Evergreen, Coug and Coug 2 were also 2 tonners.
  11. Just read the call for challenge and they are using modern 8 metres. https://rcyc.ca/getmedia/84d6c943-3c7f-40eb-a252-6f4d3f3afe4b/Canadas_Cup_Draft_8.aspx How many modern 8's are there in North America? I think that there are 5 on Lake Ontario: Sarissa, Geffion, Aluette, Yquem and Natural Anyone know of any others?
  12. One small error. Renegade was in fact finished completely at Wiggers. To the best of my knowledge it is the last R boat built at Wiggers, and it was launched before 1991.
  13. The black boat R 13 in those photos posted above is Gypsy, the first boat out of the mould at Wiggers. The second boat was Renegade, it was bought as an unfinished hull by a lawyer from Detroit, who had it finished in Detroit. The mould then went to Allan Nye Scott in Belleville who built the third boat Diana of Hastings in the early 1990's. Diana of Hastings is now called Archer it is R 15, and is just visible in the second photo above. Did I miss an R boat from Wiggers?
