      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.

We used a fairly hard rig setup, added 10 turns on the forestay. Another main, flat, very little luffcurve, so I needed 5 turns on the D1s. 22-25kn gust to 30. Used a reef in the jib, worked well with the full main. You need to balance the two the get height with speed upwind. If the main isn't working twist more in the jib. Hike hard, we had 4 hiking and me on driving and main, got help in the tacks

We got 3 star winds in the end. Downwind speeds 18+ on both days. Tight racings and the bullets spread out. The winners in the end was Peder Lanefeldt and Erik Lindsten with a great series. There was no time to freeze despite the frosty conditions.
