      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.

Charleston Race Week

Recommended Posts

Blixem doesn't need or want to be in the limelight. They decided to come down and play in the Vipers after a particularly fine couple of bottles of red wine at lunch at Rubys Oyster House in Rye. Its a break from the grand prix stuff in the Melges 32. Its for fun. They are jumping into a chartered boat with borrowed sails. They'll do well because they are good sailors, but taking life too seriously at the expense of Goslings is not on the agenda.

 

Favorites will include

 

Jackpot - Lee, Eric and Brad, fresh from winning NAs and Bacardi Race Week

Tac Boston - Watch brotherly luv go out the window Brad! Tac is a multi NA champion in various and world champ in Sonars

David Guggenheim, Mark G and Ethan Bixby - Winners at CRW last year. Ethan is multi 5-0-5 champion. Ethan and David are FAST.

Justin Scott, Ben Ainslie and Scott West - Membership of RTYC (sponsor of Team Origin) has its privileges.

Dave Nickeson + Moise Solomon - Very fast in every tier one regatta last summer, + they've got full support from Evolution at this regatta

Phil Lotz, Wendy and Rodriguez - Here for some lighthearted racing, but smokin talent.

Cate and Rick Jarchow on the new Team Rattler - These guys are pros who have come to play. Watch out!

Rob Gorman Jr - Soon as he gets used to a carbon stick, he will be up there. A top jnr sailor who was rattling a few cages with an old aluminum mast at the last couple of regattas and now has a carbon stick.

Now THAT would be a story. And a correction: Of the Boston brothers, only Tac is a World Champ, also in the Sonar. Rattler will get smoked though I can't wait to see Cate, and Bliksem is all-fun off the water but I would not be surprised IN THE LEAST if they go and win this one. That crew is scary, and when they get to the line there are few more obsessively competitive than Piet. I say your top 4 up there are solid, though put Bliksem in there with Jackpot, yourself, and Guggs for the top four spots. I'd say Bliksem to win but not without someone that knows the harbor, and I'd pick you if you had Ainslie...so let's just give this one to my pals on the Jackpot, then Bliksem, then Scott, then Guggs but with less than five points between the top four boats. Make it happen!

Darn it that sounds like fun.

 

On a different note, I'll be at the regatta site Friday and Saturday (Have to fly out Sunday). If anyone needs a filler for either day, drop me a line. Cat 1, Exp in everything from Lasers to M32s (Ramrod) to Tp 52s. I prefer back-up foreguy cleater, but I'll take anything to get out on the water in C-Town.

Give 'em a chance, I'm not sailing! :lol:

 

Sorry I'm going to miss it, but I'm crazy busy, April is the #1 month for Flexofold, plus I have the Strictly Sail Pacific show next week. :( At least I'll get to harass Schoonerman!

Did not know that Cate and Rick had married, good luck to them! And as for the comment on pros, is that short for prostitutes?

I only have adequate knowledge to place bets in two classes

 

IRC - Vincitore

J/105 - Eclipse

 

If Pugwash was still entered I would peg them for IRC but I guess that they pulled out.

FYI: I got a rather good recommendation from friend "in the know" that a good to great band is playing at the Dog House Saturday night. They are out of the New Orleans area and are on an East Coast swing.

 

They play and record with Sam Bush if that gives you any kind indication of the music type: New Grass, Rock, Reggae, Originals and Cover...

If you don't win thea hack 6 boat class dump the boat on 95 on the way back.

GO THE BOBBLING!

Agreed. Blixem came here to play but when the Prep signal sounds and Pieter's pulse quickens, they are going to be competing. They are the best in the world in one of the most competitive classes in the world so despite lack of time in boat and plenty of time with rum in hand, they will be right there. After practise yesterday, Pieter's first remark? "Fantastic boats. " So I figure they are up to speed.

 

Jackpot - (Brad Boston, Lee Shuckrow, Eric W)

Black mamba - Guggenheim + Bixby + Mark,

Blixem.

Arethusa - Phil & Wendy Lotz + Rodrigez

 

Them there are going to be a lot of folks flirting with the top 5. Never , ever rule out 3 Grins Nickerson/Solomon. Ben and I will be trying for it. Tac will surely be there. Paul Young was rigging the Rondar "works" boat this morning, so if he is driving there is another front runnner right there. Rob Gorman jr has won a lot of Viper races. I also predict there will be at least one suprise dark horse from all the newcomers.

 

Let's get it on!

Looks like I was right in my bet for the IRC division. I tied for right with the 105's.

 

Good going Arethusa!

I am dropping these at the bottom of all of the links cause I am too tired to see if Anybody put this out so I have no idea if anybody knew they had offshore coverage available all week. I never saw any link on the CRW front page and there are so many links on the yachtscoring page, I don't know if anyone really listened...or cared.
