      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. And you stick to skiing and humping sheeps.
  2. Hey Duke, again, it would be helpful to read the original post. I never asked for help on better starts. Sorry, never went to sailing school, so i missed out of that AMAZING diagram. I had to work my way through university while your dad was paying for your sailing school classes which you obviously spent feeling up Mary Rottencrotch behind the shed instead of actually paying attention to sailing. I'm proud of being a snacktician. My cold beer game is second to none.
  3. That's a pretty funny link. There's actually a diagram of a fucking BARGING zone...
  4. thanks for pointing out the obvious Stanley. Your help is GREATLY appreciated....Next time, how about actually reading the original post.
  5. I know about the back up plan. I did not ignore the comment. It's just that is was not part of the original post/question.
  6. J 24 Worlds

    HH lost a protest to Bangor Packet in the last race. Anybody have details??
  7. J70, cheating and pros

    I figure the Italian boat worker just looked at that club foot keel and decided it was wrong and took it upon himself to give it a bella figura
  8. j24 world championships

    Exactly. Star is One design. Rules were written up back in the day of wooden hulls. Tolerances are inevitable. Who cares if your jib cleat or over or over there? Hull is measured within tolerances, boat meets weight, sails meet measurement, rig meets measurement...you've got a one design Star.
  10. I concur. It just gets hairy in OD starts where everybody is stacked on the line 15 secs prior to the start fighting for a position.
  11. Sounds like a plan. thanks man.
  12. Listen Duke, you're a drawing a bunch of conclusions made up in your head without having a clue of the situation. if you want to defend the honor of all bowman out there, start your own thread. Until then stay in your lane and let the adults discuss the point at hand.
  13. Hit the gas pedal, roll over boats sitting to leeward and initiate a restart around the PIN (we we're on I flag).
  14. below the line, but that's neither here nor there. I appreciate your analysis, but what I was looking for is feedback on how to improve the skills of gauging that distance properly. So far, i got one good answer.
  15. Boat lengths based on transits taken before the start. Feedback by show of fingers. Easy peasy.
