      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.

Renting F18's

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Google is struggling to give me an answer, so this is probably a long shot: Is there any place in the world where the temperatures is not that bad in january/february, and it would be possible to rent 2-4 F18's for 3-4 days?

There is a spot in El Nido in the Philippines that has a few Hobie Tigers and Wildcats. Talk to user "F-18 5150", he worked there for a while helping them get setup. Wildwind sailing resort in Greece also has a bunch of cats you can use, as well as lots of dinghies http://wildwind.co.uk/. If you are looking for a training weekend, you could also talk to the Sarasota Sailing Squadron- they have a club owned fleet of F18s and F16s and you may be able to work out some sort of arrangement.

 

What are you hoping to do?

El Nido Adventure Sports, In El Nido Palawan Philippines has 2 Tigers, 2 Wildcats, and 3 F-18 rigged H-18's. The sailing there is awesome and there is a reef you ned to walk out but once in the bay you can sail for hours in warm clear water and stop on small islands for a bite to eat or chill on a white sand beach.

 

They are still in the set up process of building the resort but the area is beautiful and people are great.

Thanks for all the great tips! Not sure where we'll end up yet, though, still a good while left.

We (me and a few friends) live in the more northern parts of the world, and while ice sailing is fun - it's really not the same as salt water. So, basically, just looking for loads of fun and not freezing to death in the process.

 

We've usually chartered cruisers in different parts of the world, but it really is way too slow and too easy.
