      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. Modern rigging for bobstays

    Experienced opinions wanted: I am looking for a good solution to attach tack blocks & bobstays to outer end of our 5" carbon sprit pole. I have this idea of a delrin cylinder turned to match ID of pole. I can insert a piece of my old -40 rod diamonds in the concentric center of the cylinder, threading in on one end, and attach loups to this rod, which would then pass through relieved pockets or channels in the delrin that line up with openings in the carbon pole. One loup for each bobstay and a basket loup for reaching forestay. The delrin is heavy, but I want to avoid metal on carbon. How does this idea rate? I would like to hear what people have seen work well in this situation. We will bond in a stopper ridge to control delrin plug afterward movement. Possibly another bit to prevent rotation of plug in the pole. I want to do something clean and simple, without heaps of dyneema wraps and half hitches everywhere. Our boat is a Catana 471 cat, weighing about 25000#. Reaching genoa just under 1000 square feet. Any idea of how to work out forestay loads? We have option of structural furler/pinned forestay & 1:1 halyard OR hoisting sail on torsion line with 2:1 halyard & 2:1 tack line. Leaning toward the hoisted 2:1 setup, but welcome ideas. Halyard now goes through 2200# Spinlock XCS. I ordered a 6000# Cousin Trestec sock stopper, and am also considering a Harken Halyard tensioner (Pinned adjustable car on track with halyard pennant to hoist.) I need to decide soon. To attach bobstays to bows, I am waffling between tried and true padeyes, and Ropeye Pro. I am curious about longevity of Ropeye Pro. Originally we were planning to use a G-10 rod, machined into a thimble, penetrating each bow, or an outer flanged variant with diamond knot stopper set in outer end, but the other two options will be easier, and likely just as effective. Fire away! Thanks

  4. Whitstable Forts Race

    Calling UK and European catamaran sailors - It's the Whitstable Forts Race Weekend on 9th and 10th September. This is a unique long distance race, utilising a hub and spoke format to take boats around the sights of the North Kent coast (including the iconic World War 2 Red Sands Sea Forts), whilst keeping the fleet in a relatively condensed area for safety, and allowing for the provision of course shortening and options for prizes! The race is open to double handed beach cats from Dart 18 and faster, and most popular boats are Dart 18, Formula 18, Hurricane 5.9, Spitfire and Tornado. We're also usually visited by a few of the top developmental foiling boats, including Will Sunnocks' M20 Vampire Project. The race is sailed from Whitstable Yacht Club, which is less than 90 minutes from London, and less than an hour from the Dover and Folkstone links into mainland Europe. For more information, see http://wyc.org.uk/on-the-water/forts-race
  5. One of the Godfathers of the Caribbean multihull sailing and racing (and partying!) scenes D Randy West has been lost to brain tumors from melanomna. I was still in bed early this morning and heard Skype ringing on my computer and it turned out to be a fellow Caribbean multi maniac in Aruba who had heard rumors of Randy passing. Must have been during the night and no real details yet but what I found on his facebook page. Randy owned PPALU a 75' Spronk catamaran and had skippered and raced a long line of Spronks since the 80's including SHADOWFAX and SKYJACK. I was lucky enough to have raced with and against him in the Caribbean and New England and he will be greatly missed among his tribe. His enthusiasm and smile was infectious and there was always a party that was threatening to break out wherever he went. R.I.P. Randy
  6. Ride Height Set the ride height adjusters to 3 mm as measured between the top of the white edge of the foil and the bottom of the black trailing edge of the foil when the wand is straight down. Tighten the ride height nut fully, then undo the nut one quarter turn (just enough that you can adjust your ride height). Foil Rake For racing, setting the foils asymmetrically is optimal (say 2.5 windward, 3.5 leeward), but when first learning to foil set them the same bilaterally. Interestingly, it is necessary to set the foils with a higher rake for fresh water than for seawater due to the lower density of fresh water. For seawater, learn to foil at first with the foil rake set at 3 bilaterally; For fresh water, 4 bilaterally. Running with an Even Keel “The most important thing is the boat must be flat to foil.” Like a plane taking off, the wings will provide the most lift when parallel to the surface. Twin Trapeze Having both captain and crew out on the trapeze is the easiest way to foil. The crew uses the main sheet to maintain their stance on the hull while the captain uses the traveler (but do not uncleat the traveler). Beam Reach While you are on a beam reach going near your max speed, let the mainsail out slightly and you should start to foil. Avoiding Windward Capsize Once you start to foil, it is likely the mast will tip windward. When this happens, do not point more into the wind as you will luff and lose power in the mainsail. When foiling, your speed will increase and the apparent wind will shift forward. Sheeting in the main should apply more force leeward and avoid capsize.
  7. My old friend Marcel wrote me this morning, suggesting the Anarchists might be able to help - and make some bank. Hey Clean, I’m not sure if you are aware of it, however there is quite a few catamarans being stolen in the Med at the moment. It appears that charter parties are paying to charter the yachts and then simply not returning them. We’ve had 3 in the last week alone, and there is obviously quite a few upset owners with the image of chartering being tainted. Could you use the power of our community to keep their eyes peeled for these yachts? Your ‘what is it?’s seem to get to the solution in a matter of seconds! There is serious reward money available - 'negotiate reward first' is the suggestion on the 'lost and found' pages, but it can't hurt to look around your marina or out your office window to see if there are some newish 50-foot charter cats laying about, can it? Post info in this thread if you like. Here are two stolen boats - a Fontaine-Pajot 50 and a Lagoon 52 - to get started with! http://www.stolenboats.info/eng/stolen_vessel/23016/ http://www.stolenboats.info/eng/stolen_vessel/23020/
  8. Any Stiletto 23/27 owners out there? I sailed on one during the 80's but don't recall how big the berths are. I've seen them on the market and think they might be a good daysailer / over-night camper. Anyone know the dimensions? Or even better, have any good photos of the interior of the hulls? Thanks!
  9. Weight Placement on Foiling Catamarans

    Greetings! First post on Sailing Anarchy. I have absolutely no experience foiling and would appreciate tapping into the collective wisdom/experience of this forum. I'd like to see if I have a good grasp of crew weight placement on a foiling catamaran. Hoping to receive my White Formula Whisper next week. Props to Martin and Charlie P. Mayer for their very helpful videos.

  10. Emma Hamilton, one of the older C Class Cats in the UK is up for auction on EBay, bet it will go for not a lot. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/C-CLASS-CATAMARAN-/201861781010?hash=item2effe65612:g:VWMAAOSw32lYwmv6
  11. Help! We are racing a Simpson 48 catamaran (13.7 m (44.936’)) that has been modified with 3' ama extensions aka sugar scoops. This boat is new to the owner and racing. It doesn’t have an established rating, short of a provisional PHRF 141.0 rating from the recent Fort Lauderdale to Key West race, in which it won the multihull division. In the name of fairness, transparency and the spirit of competition, we are looking for a sister ship with a racing history or documented rating. The boat was designed by Roger Simpson and I would suggest there may be a few racing in either Australia or New Zealand. I have researched race results and I contacted half a dozen multihull clubs in both countries with no luck so far. If anyone can post a link to this thread with a rating for a 13.7 Simpson with or without the sugar scoops or direct me to a sister ship that has a race record or result, I would be very grateful. Time is of essence, since the rating of this boat is to be ‘penciled in’ this coming Friday in preparation for the Miami to Havana race.
  12. Sea trials were supposed to take place this past July, no news from the company. Any insight out there?
  13. Upcoming race in the Chesapeake! Interest is growing within our own West River Cat sailing community. Boats verbally committed so far: 7 (N20s, F18s, & F16s) If you want to travel into West River, we usually can provide a place to launch from and return. Just give us some notice. There is usually someone providing ground transport of bag and a few wheels to oxford and back. Accommodations in Oxford are yours to determine.

  15. ...hey, what is it?......

    . ...an A-cat kit or planset? any details?
  16. Hi, I'm sailing for a bit more than a year a F18 catamaran, and learned a lot in this time. However, I'm working on my boat speed and now I'm stuck between following 2 devices (which are already maxing out my budget). 1.) Velocitek SpeedPuck 2.) Garmin Quatix Main purpose is to have an accurate GPS speed-log on my catamaran, and probably analyzing the sailing session afterwards. I like the Speedpuck because it is very simple, durable, have huge digits so it is always visible while sailing, and also the wind shift function is interesting. On the other hand, its function seems very limited beside this compared to other devices. I like the Garmin Quatix Watch as it have besides the speed log features a compass, gps maps, and especially the race timer in combination with GPS sounds exciting. But I heard, the interface is a mess and your race might be over until your find your desired function. Has anyone experience with (both of) these devices. Which functions are really handy, which you anyway don't use? I'm kind of stuck with my decision, as both devices are quite different and have their drawbacks and advantages. I'm thankful for any shared experiences or advices. Cheers.
