      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.

Multis in Lauderdale to Key West Race

11 posts in this topic

Ok so place your bets on how the multis do against some of the highly touted monos this year. Following with interest as next year this event might be the first offshore event for the Dragonfly 32 arriving this summer. I'm betting on Tom Reese with Flight Simulator- Corsair 28R- to buzz the big boys.

What Dragonfly?

 

Scratch sheets shows only a Corsair, a second modified Corsair and a Catana.

 

Whatever happened to that big (red/orange??) Farrier that was tuning up down that way a year or so back before it got hit by lightening. I thought they wanted to race it here. Actually I don't think I have ever heard of it racing anywhere??

Tom resse has a great boat and a great crew, with the forecast the way it is though cheeky is going to be the faster boat if they can keep the boat under control.

Hey Wess- the Dragonfly 32 is arriving this summer. Meaning it hasn't been built yet.

This race has been on my bucket list for a while.

Hi X squared.

 

Sorry, I missed the "next year" part of the statement, reading too quickly.

 

I gotta get down there myself one of these days.

Race makes sense as a Key West RW fun feeder race but if you don't have a class at KW then maybe not as sensible? I recall sometime back the F boats had a class(es) at KWRW. what happened to that?

There used to be OD 28s at KWRW and then in 2011 it was a PHRF fleet and then they said they are going from 3 circles to 2 and that the mulitihull circle was the one that was cut.

That's a real shame. Maybe in the future multis will return.

I think the best bet for a return of a multihull O.D. Class at KWRW would be a Corsair Sprint 750 mk-II class. It's an awesome little 3 man boat, that's only a tad bit slower than the 28R.

 

Cheers!!!

Well see about that in the future. This year there is a 750 class at the Cherry Pie Regatta going on Feb 7-9 with 7 boats in class and then another 11 boats in the open fleet.
