      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.

Newbie here, Buccaneer 18

Recommended Posts

Hey there folks.


Bought my second boat ('84 Wellcraft made Buccaneer 18) in September. Not new to sailing....been a few years but been back into it the last few summers. New to ownership starting with a Kingfisher III two summers ago.


Got the Bucc for a song, and have had it out a few(10) times. Has a North 110 headsail, North main. Missing the spin, but I'll pick one up in the spring.


So far, I like it a lot. Half of my outings have been single handed. Only once been out with crew that knows what's going on.


Anyway photos to come.

Where are you?? The Classless Fleet aka Texas Centerboard Circuit was started by a buccaneer owner.

I'm in northern Michigan.


Sailed today in thermals, fleece and windbreaker and a knit hat.


Guess I need to fill out my profile info....

Go join the Yahoo group email list - it's pretty active with lots of Buccaneer folks chatting. And then you can go to some races - either with your boat, or team up with someone else. I started with a Starwind with the flexy mast, and have moved right up the line to the stiff, very fast Nickels.




Welcome to the Buccaneer club!
