      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.

    As if there was any doubt about how bad ass The Reverend Petey Crawford's videos are, take a look at this highlight reel from his 2013-14 jobs. And just as an added bonus, we've got a little contest for you. For the first 3 people who can tell us how many current World Champions appear in the video, Penalty Box Productions will provide their new flat brim PBP hats and stylin' shirts (thanks to Line Honors) for ya. There will be a special bonus prize for the first person to guess every single name of every world champion as well.So get going and tell us -  Whaddaya got?

This video nails down why sailing is so special to me. Optis, C Class, scows, sport boats, Moths and Star Boats! Not one of them stood out as superior to the other, which shows exactly how many great ways to go sailing there are. Must be one reason why boats are named after women.

Cheers to another outstanding vid. You know it's good when just watching something gives an adrenaline kick.

 

Rev, I have only one request. Moar Greta Kruesi, por favor.

 

I envision a Greta Cameo for SA OTWA at Lake Minnetonka this summer. She will dig it.

I have already requested that she book those dates for that event ...

You need to try a Blokart in the Summer and change out the wheels for Skates in the Winter.

 

Nothing like rounding the leeward mark at 45mph when overlapped.

 

Pretty much the same rules apply just distances have been expanded because of speeds.

Can someone who understands ice yachts tell me why they set the mast up to do that crazy bending the leeward in the middle shit?

****************************************************************************************************************************************************

 

I have NEVER sailed a iceboat, so please take what I say with a truckload of salt...

 

If I remember well what I was told once, the almost horizontal part of the sail will create a downward force that will act as "added weight" on the leeside skate and therefore allow more grip from the skates to avoid "losing it totally" and skidding sideways...

 

 

 

 

 

Now, I may be totally wrong...

Sounds feasible at least. Thanks.
