      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.

Gybing the Asym Spin on the Laser SB3

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys!

 

I was watching some videos and I noticed that there are 2 ways to gybe the Laser SB3's Asym spin:

 

1) Float the clue out to level with the forestay before hauling it in, and releasing the old sheet only when the new sheet is loaded (pulled in sightly); and

 

2) Yank (Take in / Overtrim) the old sheet first and as the boat enters into a gybe, pull in the new sheet (and releasing the old sheet only when the new sheet is loaded).

 

Which is better?

 

Thanks in advance!
