      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.

Six months to Transpac

Recommended Posts

Is it too early for the Transpac thread? I'm in for the race and the trip back to LA. I think the best part of the trip may be the week chillin' on the beach in Hanalei Bay. Anyone else? Bueller...Bueller...Buel..

Some notable entries-

 

Stp 65 badpak. Only stp to do the race to date? Haven't got the boat going yet- hope they change that. Although previous crew on previous boat have two class wins under their belts. So some experience, but new (to them) boat.

 

Loyal/ragamuffin - obviously going for line honors. Shouldn't have a problem getting there.

 

Wizard - ex Bella mente? If so, it was optimized for the previous transpac, and I doubt it's been radically changed since then, so? A contender? Hopefully with some students and ex Bella crew to make sure things go well?

 

Sc70- the usual suspects. Of interest is that Doug baker and David team (tp52 - rebel yell) have chartered a 70?? Odd that "pyewhacket" is entered. Boat was sold to sd for awhile, but sold back north, but not to Roy Disney... ?? GI looking to defend.

 

Tp52- NOT the usual suspects here- lucky, Natalie j, grins (? New owner, which boat?), vincitore (rp 52, with I believe a new keel)

 

J125- resolute has the experience, look for good things here. Not sure about west coast... Although it sounds like the doc's previous 125??

I'm on Maverick, the old Pyewacket (SC70) out of MDR. It replaces the aging Cheetah which will be relegated to cruising and a floating condo

for the out of town crew to sleep at MDR. Historically, the 70's seem to have the best shot a winning on corrected time. That probably explains the interest.

And Baker/Team have a 70 they purchased from the Great Lakes called Retro. Pyewacket is Phillip Kahn's 70 that he optimized for last T-Pac.

 

Vincitore will not have a new keel.... but they will have some new sails :)

K-Mag what happened with the other 125 are they not going now? So you will be going with Tom as well I think. I think the 70's are shaping up as a really intersting class to watch. I think there will be some great racing going on there.

The 70 fleet looks pretty awesome as far as participants and overall cool factor. Interesting the shift in ocean racing philosophy on the west coast back to the classic more comfortable rides to Hawaii.

 

Which 125 are you talking about? I am doing Cabo on the 'Timeshaver' but the boat is not really ready for a T-Pac. The owner has just started to re-vamp the sail inventory and we are working hard on the boat to bring it up to to par with some of the other 125's around.

Is it too early for the Transpac thread? I'm in for the race and the trip back to LA. I think the best part of the trip may be the week chillin' on the beach in Hanalei Bay. Anyone else? Bueller...Bueller...Buel..

 

When did the Transpac start going to Hanalei? You better kick the rest of the crew off the boat and come back next year if you want to race to that particular bit of the islands.

Some New names in entry list.. dont have a ton of time to look, but noticed that the Turbo VO70 is on the list. Given that Puma did well in IRC could be an interesting race for ex bella and the vo70?

Am I completely wrong, or is this shaping up to be one of the largest TransPac fleets ever? And only one year after one of the smallest PacCup fleets. Weird. Any ideas for the turnaround? I can remember in late 90's when PacCup had double the fleet of TransPac.

fullres that is awesome. I have done 1,000's of miles offshore with my dad and it is the best thing ever. I have never done a transpac with him although we have both done the same one just on different boats. Really looking forward to this one as boat, sails and crew are getting well sorted. Will be tough to get the big piece of wood but stranger things have happened offshore then a smaller big boat beating a bigger big boat.

30 year old sailor currintly in Hawaii with 10 years experience and one pacific crossing (LA to Hilo, 2012) looking for a chef/steward/crew position for the 2013 Transpac and/or a Return Delivery Crew Chef Position.

5'10'', 160 lbs, healthy & able bodied seaman, excellent adaptable diverse chef with provisioning & rationing experience

Tyler Woodard

808-258-8961

----------------------------------

A letter of Reference:

 

To Whom it may concern,

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Tyler Woodard.

After a recent 17 day yacht delivery from California to Hawaii, people ask me...

How was it?
What was the best part of your trip?

Well I pause for a moment and think...

Hmmm......
The amazing beauty and perfection of the ocean?
Was it beautiful sunrises and sets?
Sailing to the worlds most remote island chain?

I then say... "It was the food!".

Not just the delicious, healthy ,creative, thought provoking, living meals Tyler prepared but also the great attitude and team spirit that came along with, always a smile and a story in those recipes too!

Did I mention he's a great sailor?

He's also a Sommelier/Wine Expert/Mixologist, A Masseur. (massage chair will travel) and musicologist/he's gotta well stocked Ipod with music for any mood.

Challenging weather conditions... no problem. Tyler has what it takes to keep an offshore crew fed even during heavy weather, he makes logical and practical decisions that work and he stands a watch as well.

Challenging provisions... no problem. Tyler joined the crew at the last minute
and had to deal basically with what was on board the boat, at time taking what looks like random food items and composing amazing meals from them.
From the practical to cutting edge gourmet meals... guess who?

This guy has forever changed the way I work in my own "galley" and my diet will never be the same again!
Catch my drift amigos?
I could go on and on... but let's just leave it like this.

Working with Tyler Woodard has been a great experience on many levels and I look forward to sailing with him again in the future!

Aloha,

Captain Mark

Criminal for barn door.

How much faster is Criminal than Crocket's Rocket? Both R/P 45's. We have a good class with Criminal and the J125's.

I predict two things. This thing will go like hell.

 

After day four/five, inside it will be hot enough to boil a monkeys' bottom.

Can anyone direct me to where the ORR Ratings for the different boats is hidden. I cannot find it in any of the scratch sheets on the Transpac Website or anywhere else.

 

In the Yellowbrick tracking all boats currently racing have a TCF of 1.0.

 

It seems strange that this info would not be easily available.

Another Transpac Weapon arrives in town.

 

I predict two things. This thing will go like hell.

 

After day four/five, inside it will be hot enough to boil a monkeys' bottom.

 

Ker 51 Varuna

 

The guys were working on her in Antigua in 35 degree C weather, I did not envy them one bit. Though we were on a VOR60 with no shade, so it wasn't much different!

They were going 20 knots, the other boats north of rumbline are going 9. They probably spent the same amount of time on that lift, but went quite a bit further. Big multihull courses often look sporadic because they have the speed to make up distances. Also they are fast enough to treat the weather like an all you can eat buffet. Go fast to pressure then focus on vmc. Plus they are also not covering anyone. On the opposite end you have boats like Dorade, who should not deviate from rumbline much. Sleds and swing keelers fall somewhere in between. Yes I'm talking out of my ass, but it's SA. How many days in is the Tri?

....what up with Lending Club so far north of the Rum Line?

They made the move before the wind started clocking, and the forecast has the wind continuing to clock. I figured the multihull can't run dead downwind (at least not with good speed), so they wanted to play the angles on the shift.

Yeah I didn't look at the angles or the wind much, I figured it was primarily pressure related, but also wondered if their was a breakage (see front page). Any fast apparent wind boat is 98% pressure driven. We drive to pressure first, ask questions later.

So far so good. Whichever hull crosses the line first should get the barn door. Too much iPhone work to look, but how's their record status?

Records:

 

Fully Crewed Multihull Elapsed time: Explorer (86' catamaran), 1997 of 5 days, 9 hours, 18 minutes, 26 seconds.

Fully Crewed Monohull Elapsed time: Alfa Romeo (yacht) II, 2009 of 5 days, 14 hours, 36 minutes, 20 seconds.

According to Yellowbrick's tracker's last update (6 hours ago, at 0600 PDT, due to the lag), Lending Club had 300.1 NM to go and was doing 20 knots VMG. Their start was 5 days ago at 1300 PDT, so they have 16 hours, 18 minutes, 26 seconds to break the record as of that update. If they can maintain 20 knots, they'd be there in 15 hours. It'll be close, but it's entirely possible if the breeze continues to cooperate. Of course, due to the lag, their actual finish should occur 9 or 10 hours from now, not 15 or so. So I guess check the Transpac site for finishing results sometime this evening for a finishing time, rather than waiting until early tomorrow morning for the tracker to post it.

For monohulls, the shortest elapsed time this year will probably be Ragamuffin 100. As of 0600 PDT, they had 543.7 NM and were doing 14.7 kts. AR II's record will pass at 0336:20 PDT tomorrow. So at 0600 PDT, they had 21:36:20 remaining to complete 543.7 NM. That would require a VMG of 25 knots. So that record won't be falling this year.

There's no way MaxiTecFin100 will touch the record, even under favourable conditions she'd be no match for AR2 - the boats weren't in the same league, which is why Charlie Brown flicked her in the first place.

Tracker will start live polling once Lending Club is within 100 nm of the finish. No more 6 hour delay from that point on.

LC on the 100 mile tracker now. Doesn't show DTF though. 19.5 knots.

Real question is can Manatea hold off Rags for the first mono home?

How about can Dorade hold on to #1 overall (fleet standings)? I'd like to see a shot of Rags passing Dorade... they were close.

Dorade finished and won the 1936 Transpac. 77 years later, here we are again. We had good wind, we had a great crew, we made the best of it, said Dorade Captain Matt Brooks.

This site has become so toxic that I do not participate much anymore...however, this is an epic story. Thanks to Scot for posting it on the FP, which is where I found it, and still visit on occasion.

 

Congrats to the crew of Dorade. It was cool to read the NY Times article and that they talked about the new spruce spars, and building them to handle the loads of high tech fibers in modern sails. B)
