      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.

Tigers 1 & 2 in WIRW 2011

6 posts in this topic

Another WIRW in the books and thanks to all the boats in P1 for a great week of level racing. Things were extremely close this year, you could never relax or you'd be passed quickly. Great time on and off the water and I hope we see the Tigers back in numbers next year!

Anything to report about the boats, conditions, tactical excellence, windshifts, pure "boats" speed from Bob the maestro etc?

R,

We saw everything from 4-22 knts of breeze in flat water conditions. Penn Cove offers "staduim racing" with lots of current and wind shifts while we sailed against one other Tiger, 2 Farr 30's, 1 Hendo and a J 90. All boats seem to have similar speed with the Tigers but we had a little more point in 8-10. It was very educational sailing downhill with the Farrs as they just poled back and pointed at the mark when ever the breeze was up. Made us very attentive to our angles and boat speed. Tuesday was the big breeze day and my main trimmer work his ass off up hill. We managed to hold our own with the others even though it's not our ideal conditions.

I was watching. Thanks you guys. But I always thought you could do it. I trust the boat.

 

Kind of sorry I wasn't there for any of the toga type parties but I'm not at my best in a toga.

I'd have to drink a lot.

 

I think I actually could do that. It may not be pretty.

 

Thanks for making the boat go.

It was a great week- some very well sailed boats- Kirks was best. When we made mistakes we paid instantly.

 

We played with our rig tensions more than usual- and really enjoyed feeling the boat respond accordingly. Tues as the wind was blowing dogs off chains we were going upwind w/ great speed and point- unfortunately my 4 year old jib halyard snapped at the sheave on the tail end of our first beat. Thinking about replacing the single sheave with a double and going up a size. No, the jib was not oem.

 

I think people could tell we were having a blast in our boats- hope more Togers join us next time.

 

Mark
