      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.

Of note, this Kite started with the last of the BIG DOGS "2017 52' Dragsters"





OK so after SMOKIN on the way out, Next thing I know Dude is Flyin by on the way back

Thought of WOW did he actually run the Full Track that quickly ??:blink:




Will Cry, makin short work of a Looooong Hot Lap !!!!


well I Had to find out who this guy was and what he actually did

The actual Track is 11miles start to mark to mark to mark to mark & finish as the crow flyies

No One does it in 11 miles but most everyone is heading for the next mark as best they can

This Guy beat the 52's in by just about 20min - the 52' were shaving as many extra feet off their track as possible 

The Kite on the other hand went walkabout checking out the beach at the Hotel Del along the way

here is his explanation on his Lap of Hot Rum Race # 2


That was wild, I was on way too big of a kite and was tough getting home. I went to my largest kite right before the start because the wind was 9-10 knots across the course
I was on an 195 sqft kite and shoot have been on 140

There’s my track. 37 minutes for 18.8 miles. Didn’t know about the last mark so I had to go lower after Hotel Del

Upwind about 22 knots at 30 TWA, and downwind 30 knots at 150TWA

I started right before the pac52s because i was worried the wind was going to pick up more
