      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.

What are people's opinions on mixing and matching sails on J70s?

Recommended Posts

I've seen some boats mixing... but are there standouts in the particular sails?

Practice - mix all you want

Racing - Stick with one sailmake due to the fact that the set up is different from one sailmaker to the next and that would infer that the rig needs to be set up also for those specific sails.

 

Nothing new on that front though....

You set your rig for the Main, and the jib is car placement. I have sailed on boats with sails from 5 different lofts, and from 1 loft. It all comes down to tuning and trimming for the conditions.
