      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.

Magic 25

Recommended Posts

So.. Turkey Slapper isn't going to like this.. Or maybe he will.. I cant remember to much whinging and not enough facts on here.. But here goes.. :P

 

Does anyone have info on the Magic 25 that put a tiny mainsail and Symmetric Spinnakers on for a gift SMS rating?

 

Can anyone confirm the "Traps in OD trim" rule? Can't find it anywhere.

 

Cheers.

You'd be talking about Go Majik.

 

It didnt run traps.

You want to have a read of the ASBA constitution.

 

Most ASBA events have this in the eligibility for entry section of the NOR:

1.4 Rule 49.1 shall not apply to Melges 24 and Magic 25 Sports Boats if racing in compliance with their respective class rules and it is noted on the Sports Boats SMS Certificate that the rating incorporates hiking devices

Yep noted.

 

But In compliance with their rule.. Would this mean you could rate smaller Mainsail area/girths than Class but still be allowed traps?

Or do boats such as M24 and Magic 25 just get given an OD TCC based on the rig plan?

you want traps, you run off OD TCC

 

also if you want traps you must sail a Magic (class)

 

you may/might be able to run undersize sails but the rating won't change

 

I'm not aware of the Magic class rules (which are to be followed if you want traps under ASBA) but i don't think they ban smaller sails, or two mainsails .. maybe

Correct - class rating will not change, based on class spec's and Locked In, but ok to run smaller No# 2 Jib, Main or Kite.

 

Only Class OD Magic's are allowed to run traps for M25/ASBA/YA sanctioned events.
