      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.

    Fair winds and following seas, Meade, from a fellow Great Lakes sailor.
  2. Methinks that clubs are essential to having a good race fleet. Everybody pitches in, RC, mark maintenance, club maintenance, Sailing schools. Most especially when you need crew. There are many times when you want to race and simply cannot with bigger boats because of crew. The only way to get fresh crew is when you build from within. Eventually the kids get bigger, grow up, and contribute. Too many boats sit and rot because of this.

    Who didn't? One boat told us their cockpit literally filled up with hail. Think we got to it after it had calmed down a bit because we got one hell of a lightning show and rain that stung like nothing I've ever seen, but no hail and the winds were pretty tame for a thunderstorm. We saw higher winds both in the earlier storm Sunday and the squall near last year's start. That light show though. no hail, just a downpour, then 30 on the nose
