      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. Having been caught out near Brooks in 25-35 upwind, I can tell you that it's not a wildly pleasant place to be. Like many others here, I would recommend going up to Desolation or parts of Johnstone Strait and back.
  2. Melbourne Osaka 2018

    It'd be interesting to know what modifications they made in terms of sails and sail handling systems. Anyone know?
  3. Southern Straits 2018

    10-day forecasts are pretty laughable. Fine with the warm part of that though..
  4. What a money pit!

    I know at least 2 are sailboats. The rest..?
  5. New imoca boats

    Touché. It just bothers me when people diminish someone else’s achievement(Armel) in order to come up with an excuse for their personal favorite(AT). Nothing but awe and respect for what AT has done. But the fact of the matter is that Armel deserved the win. With that being said, AT is my pick in 2020.
  6. New imoca boats

    Last time I checked, if you break something and finish second you don't get a consolation first place prize.
  7. Pac Cup 2018

    Ugly class. Farr 400 isn't going though.
  8. J/125s Are AWESOME

    And who's doing Transpac next year?
  9. J/125s Are AWESOME

    16 were built and I think we lost one in a Hurricane. Where are all the rest? Hamachi( Ex Aunt Jessie, Ex Wings of the Wind?): Seattle Warrior: Santa Barbara Can't Touch This( Ex Double Trouble, Ex Narrow Escape...): Norcal TYR(Ex Stark Raving Mad): Norcal Resolute(Ex Roxane): Socal Timeshaver: Socal Rais'n Cane: Florida Reinrag2: Portland?(but where does the boat live?) Derivative: Socal August Ice: Tahoe Pearl: Hurricane boat? Erleichda? Spectre: East coast ? ? ?
  10. Youth evolution in sailing

    bark bark bark
  11. New imoca boats

    Oh right I forgot, that’s why it came second in the Vendee Globe..
  12. Newport - Bermuda 2018

    The lower limit of 58 feet for the Multihull class sure sounds like anti-Fujin tactics..
  13. who what where

    Can't go wrong with a 125.
  14. who what where

  15. Youth evolution in sailing

    And I guess you could use a similar argument with the Olympic classes, that it's a niche as far as the full scope of sailing is concerned. Now I'm not saying that the Olympics are inconsequential as far as our sport is concerned, but to say that the United States is simply uncompetitive on an international level due to the fact that we haven't been performing well at recent Olympic games, is short-sighted. Take Stu Mcnay and Erika Reineke. Both were top-level college sailors who have made a name for themselves in Olympic classes(470 and Radial), but also in other boats(Stu Mcnay is a Melges 24 world champion.).
