      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. I found replays on Apple TV. Go to the NBC Sports App (if you haven't used it before (I hadn't) you need to jump through a few hoops to register), find the "Replay" menu from the choices across the top and select "America's Cup Fleet Racing"
  2. Stu, John Kostecki, Matt Ciseki (sp?), ?, Jim Barton, Pat Griffin, Matt Wilson, Kirk Arndt, Harold Blades, and Eric Arndt. Had to pull in Jeanene for Stu and Jim Bob. Had dinner with Jim at an Opti regatta the other night, but still didn't recognize him in this picture. Obviously Turkey Day at ABYC. Guessing those are the top two J24s? 1988??? Jeanene thinks 1990. kp
  3. I wasn't in the loop. I was in LA yesterday and wasn't able to watch. Tried to go out and watch today, but couldn't stay out of the way so we sailed off for a little cruise on the mighty 'Melon. It's been a while--she could use a little love. While I don't have any results yet, there are pictures on the Foundation website. Go to the "Gallery" tab. kp Gaucho results are up on the SBYC website: Gold Silver

  5. Jeanene and I were trying to figure out the crew. From the bow, Bob Little ("Peaches"), George Sanchez, Jeff ("Elvis") Thorpe and Kenny Bro? We're guessing Susan in the companionway feeding out the kite? Lower ring in that breeze? Happy Birthday old man! kp
  6. From the top left and clockwise: Eric, Charlie or Travis, Andrea and me? Too funny. Jeanene and I are humbled by the award. There are a lot of others who are equally deserving who I would have loved to have recognized had I been there. Sorry to have missed it (but my liver's not). Cheers, KP
  7. Since we’re acknowledging the accomplishments of Santa Barbara Youth Sailing Foundation sailors, I should probably mention that Dane Wilson won the St. Petersburg YC Valentines Regatta last weekend. First place out of 152 boats in Gold Fleet! Results
  8. New SBYC member Pat Toole. Yabbo beat Eric on a tie-breaker for 2nd--I think. KP
  9. Thanks to VYC for a very well-run event--I think everyone had a good time. FWIW, it was Miguel and Lucas 1-2 in the last race. Thanks again! KP
  10. Opti Results
  11. Chris is sailing with Mike Wolfe. KP
  12. Sorry Jane, no beer and brats at the SBSSA Yacht Tour this year. Scotty D. is retired. But, if you're looking for a little twist on tradition, look for the J. Wilkes table. The winemaker will be pouring his rediculously good Pinot Blanc and serving steamed mussels from Kanaloa. You might even see me there Last I heard there were less than 40 tickets left. I'm guessing there won't be any tickets for sale at the gate. If you know anyone who wants to go, you should have them contact J9 ASAP. See you Saturday (or Friday at the bar after Opti practice). Cheers, KP
  13. AFAIK, the boat was sold to Huy Nguyen and--as part of the deal--Eric has agreed to sail with him for a few months. I think you'll see Erik and Mike do some sailing together after that. But what do I know KP when did lidecis and marzhal quit sailing together?
  14. It was a great evening for youth sailing in SB as over 100 parents, friends and supporters of the SB Youth Sailing Foundation gathered on the NEW dock for wine and snacks. Everyone got a chance to meet Duncan Shea, the new Jr. Program Director. Summer sailing kicks off Monday morning for the first of five two-week sessions. And, GO LIZARDS!!!! Wish we were there. KP
  15. Glenn's on the sidelines for a bit. But, he might be willing to charter his boat to someone interested in giving the Melges a try. Any takers? KP
