      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.

Tacktick Race Master

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to change the top display on a Raymarine (nee Tacktick) Race Master unit. I didn't think it could be done, but I have just noticed this article:

and at the weekend I saw a French J/80 racing with the same configuration.

The top display can't be toggled easily, but you can change the mode the unit is running in through setup. Hold the dot button to enter setup, then use the down arrow to go to the options chapter. Use the right arrow to get to the MOdE section. Press the dot button to make it editable (it'll flash) then use left and right to change it and dot again to set it. You can switch it from Heading mode (HDG) to Speed (SPD) or Wind Direction (DIR). Once in one of those modes the top pane will be locked to that until you change the mode again.
