      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.

Extra Dart for WIRW, Needs a crew

37 posts in this topic

Paul & Hawaiifins have both entered their Darts into WIRW. Mark was going to race Dart #1, but can't make it. So, if anyone's interested, I've a spare Dart that's kinda' up for grabs to do this year's Whidbey Island Race week. Who can give me the best reason, cash, experience, dancing girls, to let them crew & enter this Dart in the race?

 

Of course, deposit on Dart #5 trumps all entries..

 

#1 is the thrasher Dart. But its also the one that just won the Round Whidbey Island Race by over 4 hours. So, it can move right along in the right hands.

 

Let see what people have to offer.

Jim,

Please be sure to select someone with limited sailing abilities. I've worked hard to protect my rating and would hate to see that all ruined for the sake of a publicity stunt.

I'm your guy! By the time I'm done with it, PHRF will be around a buck-fitty. :D

Which rig does the boat have? The aluminum one or the carbon one? Hopefully the carbon one since PHRF decided that it would not get a rating adjustment

Me! Pick Me!

 

I've crewed on a nice Beneslow (inlcuding a DNF!), a beautiful cruising Hunter, and I've been training on my C27 out of Anacortes. Paul's precious rating will be safe. I can crew Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I'll bring the dancing girls by the shop sometime.

No silly, I'm not looking for a crew member.. I'm looking for a crew with captain that can go get a win. But you can bring the dancing girls over any time you would like.

 

( My wife says they have to wear burkas )

P.S. C27 out of Anacortes? Catalina 27? Which boat?

I,m better qualified to protect the rating and bring the boat home intact than win, but I'm pitching the idea to a friend.

 

Now to find burkas.

 

 

I recently moved Revenge to Cap Sante from Everett. She is moored next to Wild Rumpus on "J" Dock. We haven't raced here yet - just some cruising. I have a snow sports problem and spend most of my non-working days from November to July on the snow.

Hmmm Jim, sounds interesting and would give me an excuse to make a trip back to the PNW. I could offer you some old B25 rudders :lol: Will this boat be an A sail or Sym set up? It would be a cool thing to do and I could see how it compares to the B's.

Ahem, Silverbullet?!

 

* Guarantees rating is safe for current and future Dart owners.

* Local crew, WIRW winners

* Will not break anything that can't be fixed

* Can gybe a pole (none of that sissy A-kite stuff, unless #1 has an assy in which case that's cool too)

* Will deliver and return with a full tank of gas

 

Still not sure?

* Pics of Good Enough with bikini-clad crew?

* Save you a trip and deliver lead for #4's keel? How much does it weigh again??

Wow!

This is a cool rule:

C. Boats with a youth sailor under 18 but not including 18 years of age will receive a 3 second credit to your rating. Boats
with over 8 crew must have two youth sailors to receive this credit.
Some youth sailors are good enough to require a 3 second debit though.....

Seriously- I need one or two crew for WIRW for Dart #004. No need for dancing girls or naming rights to your firstborn. PM me if you might be interested!

 

Racing Experience: lots of heavy weather helm time.

Dart Experience: 1 hour in light breeze on #001 (in other words, zero time).

WIRW Experience: I like Penn Cove Mussels.

 

I provide: beer, water, party wristbands. A boat to stay on if you want. Hey--it has those fluffy cushions.

Jim, Except for Kent and I none of these wanna be's have spent any money at LCD

 

I bought a B25 rudder and will offer my old rudder, my old wife, and my current wife. All are used and could use new silicone

 

My dog and I need a trip out west.

Heeheeheehahaha,,,,,,,, ok so yes Team Arntson (aka team Nikita) is seriously interested,,,, AND we know what you need; family, juniors, cruising, racing, trophy's, pictures and video for social media marketing, editorial journal story writing.... booze,,,,, and of course bikinis.....

 

So here is how we can make it go down....

 

Family:

Dad: Paul Krak Arntson

Mom: Kimberly Arntson

Son: Stein Arntson 16

Son: Rudi Arntson 15

Friend1: Austin Stromme 16

Friend2: 13-16 yo Junior TBD

 

Juniors: ok... thats 3 juniors minimum, does that mean we get 9 seconds a mile?

 

Family Racing exp:

- Lifelong individually and together, Optis, phrf, melges24's&32's, t-birds, Express27's, windsurfers and lots more.

- Stein and Rudi both attending Whidbey since they were born....

- Lots of sailing as father and son, mother and son, husband and wife, and all 4 of us together, lots of solid competitive results

 

Cruising:

- we need more! would plan on the boys and I picking up the boat a few days early and cruising it before Whidbey!

 

WIRW 2013 Journal

- will document our experience, cruising and racing, on the Dart with pics and a couple go-pros, maybe if we can get some 2nd party footage we can put together a season edit style video.... at the least we can provide some good story writing journal style with pics for editorial style marketing use

 

Booze:

- I will present a beautiful retro designed bottle of Kraken Rum, a most excellent libation of which holds in indisputable reputation, (and my namesake).

 

Let's stoke the checks off the list; Family, Kids, Race Resumes, Competitors, the boys and I will write material and document our adventure with pics and video, starting with a cruise before Whidbey, training and then the race week itself. Some good material for your Social Media marketing.... I am forgetting something....???.... Oh and yes, bikinis',,,, well that goes without saying, we have a rep to maintain there, and Kimberly just bought 3 new brazilian bikinis in Maui!.... wait...wait one more... Lastly, BEHOLD! we will fly our WIRW flags on your boat during the week, created over 20 years of Whidbeys, almost the largest collection, second only to Don Wills infamous Shoot the Moon.

OK, Upping the ante. Two old B25 rudders I replaced with LCD rudders, and since I live in KY, I'll bring the Knob Creek bourbon. And I will continue to buy Jim's neat stuff.

For PR & badgering beyond the call of duty. Krak Arntson gets Dart #1 for WIRW.

 

But! Seeing how popular this got, we plan on opening up this offer for more regattas this season. We'll give the people who were fighting for it this time first turn downs for these later races.
