      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.

J92 Tuning guide

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

We are a beginning J92 racing team in The Netherlands.But we have problems in finding a tunings guide.

Now, we just guess the tensions on our rig. So if someone could share their tunings guide we would be very pleased!!

 

Here's a video of last saturdays race.!

Watched your video

Is the traveller broken? it didn't move once on the upwind legs. I thought the J92 had a forehatch - what are you doing with the kite dragging out the back when you drop it so far from the mark.

Seems you gave more to worry about than the tuning guide

At times you guys were going really fast. Then, all of a sudden like the start of the video you would get the slows. Then she would speed-up again really fast.

 

 

Maybe work on consistency........................

When you hit 19.2 knots call the Thin Man for directions on which way to go. :lol:

 

Seriously get in touch with the guys from Amigos that just got 2nd at Charleston Race week, they proved the boat can go at a rating of 105 PHRF which is closer to what it should rate around 96-99 which would be equal to it's IRC rating

+1.

Amigos had pace upwind. I've sailed against a few J92's in major regattas and Amigos was the fastest I've raced against.

David, it's a pretty standard boat to set up in terms of rig tune. You absolutely should work the traveller upwind once the boat is powered up and keep the leech tight for point. In underpowered conditions I liked to sail a little freer and with twisted main and jib, again fairly standard stuff.
