      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.

VG - the one I raced on in the Chesapeake went somewhere south & a little west. Teal mast, pink boot stripe (I know, i know..I just sailed on it) - named Chareta. Sail number 83144 maybe? I think it is the same one.

 

Had the deck re-done back here probably 15 years ago. Hopefully all the teal & pink spinnakers have blown up by now. :unsure:

That is the boat, I raced it in the distance race this last summer. It took second to my little Santana 20!

Two in Bellingham, Orca, Jamoca and formerly from Bellingham is Impetuous, now in Blaine WA, renamed I think.

Another in Bellingham a few years ago had the cockpit burned out of it, then rebuilt for a crazy custom look. Don't know where that is.

I've raced on Chareta serveral times on texoma. Great boat and being well run by the owner. Still has the green mast though. I think they recently blew up the last pink kite! With a good crew the boat seems very fast!

yeah that was Keladi that burned up. Marlene had one for a while too. At one point we could have had up to five J36's on the line but Orca by that point was a cruiser. My first WIRW had ten or eleven 36s there('96). a great boat they are and would love to sail on one again. I was practically rasied on Impetuous!!!

We had one racing PHRF on the Neuse River in North Carolina for years, named Blue Bayou. She was in rough shape, lots of core damage. She was the epitome of a "war horse". The owner passed away and the boat was sold. Not sure where she is now.

 

Great boat, they certainly got their miles out of her.

There is The Ballyhoo which sails here in Buzzards Bay, she is somewhere on the Chesapeake for the winter. The owner used to own a J-29 Ballyhoo, the boat came out of Nova Scotia 3 years ago I believe.

How is it racing that boat, if you do?

I have not down much sailing due to some medical problems. As for rating I will need to find out. Putting a new rig in I shortened the mast by 6', lengthened the boom with the help from Rod Johnstone with measurements. Also cut off about a foot on keel. I like to start doing short crusing or local races when I start to feel better.

I sure hope you are talking about the J36 and not the IC24...

We sail Eclipse (J/36 #14) out of Southport CT. We've beaten our friends on Tomfoolery (from Rowayton/Five Mile River) when provided the opportunity, and have sailed past every J/35 we've raced against. Went up to Maine last summer and found another J/36: Gjoa (sp?) on a mooring at Billings in Stonington (Deer Isle). We hailed & circled them, but the crew must have been at breakfast ashore. On the return trip we went from Harpswell to Southport (some 225 miles) in less than 48 hours, mostly under just a reefed main. We entered the Cape Cod Canal doing better than 10 knots. Fast IS fun! post-2532-126870657934_thumb.jpg post-2532-126870743709_thumb.jpgpost-2532-126870748124_thumb.jpg

Proper yacht for sure. Put some good miles on WAGS (#7 I think) out of Jubilee YC once upon a time. I really enjoyed the boat, sailed well and was fast and comfy.

I have owned a J-36 for 2 years now. I bought it in Marblehead and sailed it south to Annapolis and Hampton, VA before going offshore to ST. Croix, USVI. Google Cayennita Grande and check out the results. The worst we did this year is a second place. We won the Rolex, BVI Festival, Sweetharts of the Caribbean and the BVI Spring regatta. 2nd in the St. Croix Hospice and the PR Heineken. It has a full forward interior, stove, cushions, refrigeration and oh, yes, a 600# bulb added to the keel with the proper reinforcemnts in the hull. I use JSI sails made out of dacron for rating purposes and durabilty. Only use a 120% genoa and also a 3/4 oz reacher when the asymmetrical chute wont do.

Cianita Grade is in Puerto Rico and is owned by a serious character. I mean that in the best way possible.

 

 

Cayennita Grande is the correct spelling. Check out the boat in the various regattas in the Virgin Islands. I can always use extra talent

Beat a J/109 to the windward mark today, but they passed us on the reach; there wasn't enough chop to slow them down. We finished second on corrected time by 23 seconds.

Do you still have the boat? I've been looking for one but most seem to have core issues. Not the end of the world but it's one of those things that you really don't know what you've got until you start digging. What do you think about this boat for non competitive high performance shorthanded sailing? If you know of others I could get in touch with about this it would be appreciated. I love the looks and everything else about these boats. I just don't know if it can be sailed without the crew weight. Thanks.

I've been on them. What a fantastic, timeless design. I suppose the J109 would be a more practical choice these days, if you can afford one, as it's infinitely easier to sail shorthanded, etc. But holy heck do I think the J36 is one of the best boats ever. I vastly prefer symmetricals over asyms on any but the fastest dinghies. That being said, when you're up at that size, obviously you're talking dip-pole jibes, and there's consequently an awful lot of spaghetti on there.

 

If memory serves, the J36 is only a tad slower than a J35, and you get ever so much more. Remind me, what's their rating?

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 36 is a great boat. I used to race on one back in the day.

We're still saling Eclipse. Went up to Maine again this summer after cruising to Cuttyhunk, MV, Nantucket and Newport. Did the long hauls with six or more crew to cover watches, but handled Penobscot Bay (Tennants Hbr,, Bucks Hbr, Brooklin, Deer Isle, North Haven & Rockland & Rockport) with just the two of us. The r/f does make handling the jib easier, and you could probably lead the slab reefing lines into the cockpit to make that easier too. We've had some core delamination, which I fixed several years ago. The return from Maine was not downwind this time. Had to beat up Buzzards Bay into a 4' chop after getting through the canal. Getting new sails would help us get back to beating the J/109's at our club more consistently. (1000 miles on the main isn't helping us win races.) It is a pretty boat with a nicely finished interior as well - something the newer ones fall short on, despite their pricetags. There was a J/36 for sale in Buzzards Bay, and another in Nova Scotia earlier this summer.

The Buzzards Bay one is on Lake Superior.

I find her much better balanced than my old J35

She's named Radio Flyer now

 

Congrats! Have fun with your new-to-you boat.

We have an old J/36 warhorse here in the Pacific NW: Monkebyones - that still does well as a PHRF racer.

Radio Flyer has about 40 square feet of her port side recored last winter. Interesting process and it looks beautiful.

 

Point of interest - LMPHRF issued us a PHRF certificate @ 87

Just put a deposit on a J/36 in Saint John New Brunswick. Waiting on the survey results and she's coming home to Shediac Bay! Not sure which hull she is. The transom has either had extensive work, or the HIN is somewhere else. Tuning info on these is pretty tough to find. I'm guessing due to the limited production? Anyway can't wait to race her!
