      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.

Day 3 - Chasing The Light

Recommended Posts

Great top rounding!

 

Full Throttle ahead,

MFATIC just behind

 

 

Hike, Bitches first day on the job - SUCKED at the top mark and we can't give you the full roundings - no worries though - watch the video in a few minutes and you'll see them all.

 

His penance is to pour Vodkas for me all day. BTW, I'm on my second big glass.

 

 

hell I could have come out and sucked at calling roundings and poured drinks all day. I'll bring a bottle of the good tequila next time.

 

Nice footage of IRC boats during the break.

ROck N Roll was third, Barbars in fourth. Boats are splitting the tanker and a bunch of yahoos on Catalinas, etc. - Charlie flag is up with a shorten course, very small gate, looks like RC is trying to take the tanker out of the equation.

Next contest: This time, winner gets a set of Eastport 32 beer coozies, and the other one gets a microfiber shirt from Coral Reef Sailing Apparel.

 

We love the number 69 - so guess the 6th place boat and the 9th place boat. In the contest thread - not here.

Hey, if one of y'all will post this contest in the contest thread, it would help me out. Thanks in advance. Suider - McNay finished 31st.

Final top mark video up:

 

if what you say is true about the new boats being faster,

what does that predict for the future of the class? -

seems to me you'd want all boats to have the same speed potential -

and have the racing decide who the best sailors are...

We had a little issue with Mer's computer - but we've got some pics for you shortly. RC is rolling into a start shortly.

 

And right on cue - here they are.

Joe Fly and Quantum Racing only six points apart - that is nothing at all. Larson is starting to fall out of contention, but what a battle between these giants.

Plenty of 700 hulls between 14th and 22nd.............same number as there are between 1st through 13th........the good sailors find people that can afford a new boat so it's hard to tell how Hutch and Larson would do in hulls 306 and 307

Better breeze now! maybe up to ten knots. Course 4, 185 degrees. Tugs going through the course now - just a regular busy day on the Chesapeake.

Yeah, true for sure - the truth is that you have to be a hell of a long way up there before you start to tell the difference - but it's there.

 

 

 

Goin on the roof for a start!

well, that's a good point...

I guess I'm just comparing it to classes where 40- and 50-year old boats are still competitive...

Probably a good discussion for another thread, huh? Little boat, high performance, goes out in all conditions = gets soft pretty quickly no matter how well built

And what class would have a 40-50 year old boat competitive against a new one? I don't know of any class with that potential!

 

The M24 does benefit from being new, but how much is a good guess. 1-2 BL per leg? Perhaps. For the top guys this is a big issue, but for the middle and back, it does not matter. In general the top guys in the class buy boats more ofen than not, hence having newer stuff. Does it make them faster? No...but it sure does not hurt!

Joe Fly wins the boat, Gannet just behind, Cary Siegler on Cre843 let JF in at the last second - JF had their jib unrolled until 0:03. Entourage first to tack over, Chris Larson follows suit but ahead of Amendola.

 

 

 

 

Left shift came in a minute ago - guys on the left look pretty good a quarter way up the beat.

No a lot of love from the J/122 "Flying Jenny IV" in that picture (two folks are giving 1/2 of a peace sign).

 

Did you get in their way or are they just not happy campers.

This is some sweet shit - the sun is bright, the rest of the sailing boats have gone home, and all that's left are a dozen spectator boats and 47 M24s fighting for every inch.

We are already at the dock, with a great finish video uploading and then an on-the-water interview with Terry Hutchinson as we headed in. Sit tight. I think I might switch to Pusser's shortly, which will be a bad idea, but entertaining.

 

 

 

I don't have the slightest clue who won what - I'll have to look later when I'm drunker. Who else should I interview?

Here's Hutch - and probably the best interview I've ever done. Then again, my judgment is a bit skewed right now.

 

 

 

stsomewhere won the #9, no one got the #6

Closest wins. Or the first one to show their girlfriend/wife/sister/MILF's tits. Only in the contest thread, though.
