      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.

  1. Traffic at the Mark

    I belong to a small Laser class Sailing Club on the West Coast of Canada and recently had some frustrating experiences due to traffic at the mark. I have relied on other sailer to tell me the rules as I am newer. But I have found that I gotten into the traffic and not known what to do or not being given right instruction. Which usually results in frustration and a quite a number of bumper boats situations. I'd like to know what to do before I get into another situation. Instead of reading a rule book is there official tutorial video's or graphics that can help me out and know the proper protocol for traffic at the mark.
