      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.

    Because Washington State is the shit... Plus we have Paulie B here (except PB is not taking part in the design - a little consulting, but thats it.)...

    The older I get the more I realize this to be true. Of course the 'horses for courses' rule applies but in general an all-around race boat is fairly treated by PHRF and I've done it enough to have a qualified opinion here I hope, after many boats and lots of years. I find your posts to be informed and insightful; reminds me of the old days of SA before all the keyboard wankers showed up. 3 seconds, 9 seconds... the rating seldom adds up to "the difference" between who got to the first shift and had better boat handling. The complaints come from the back of the fleet guys with a dirty bottom, shitty sails and a red flag on their backstay who are looking for reasons to feed their ego after not having spent enough time racing boats they can learn to sail properly. I frequently race Lasers in the interest of eliminating these variables. truths

    I've done RTC a number of times. I would vote for the wind range addition to PHRF. RC picks the wind range used for the day. It worked in Grand Prix last year and got Neptunes Car a win in race two; I raced on Smoke in the IRC class for that regatta. And yes, OD racing is where it is at. We currently have the strongest J/24 fleet in the country and are hosting Nationals in a few months. Get in there buddy!

    I agree. I like the wind range thought. Works well in other rating systems.
