      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.

    CI Hack, dont know the answer but I suspect from your question that you dont understand the rating system. It is a disadvantage to them to have the lower rating on wed nights. The higher the number the more time faster boats would have to give them and the less time they would have to give slower boats. I think 84 may be the standard 36.7 configuration for one design and allows the standard class #1 headsail. When sailing some phrf they can get a credit for smaller headsails or weight, I think. Actually it had to do with sail size. You would be correct if they sailed at a lower rating with the same sail. I hardly think that is the case. To be perfectly clear I a almost positive that 84 or 87 is with a 155% headsail and 90 is with a 145%. YRA LIS members can view certificates and the copy that was given to me shows a distance rating of 87 and L/W of 90 with +3 for 145% and +3 for max weight of 1500 pounds. Ok, so It sounds like you are saying they are doing it right.Sailing with a larger 155 and a lower rating (84) and when using the higher rating they sail with a 145. it also sound like they are getting a credit +3 for weight at some regattas and the distance rating of 87.
