      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. What Brass said below is spot on- In the first incident - If Green protests Yellow, Yellow needs to Protest Black if Black does not keep clear to keep their nose clean. It is all a mute point though since you did not pull the flag immediately (you cannot go find it down below when finished rounding). If you were spot on with the protest procedure and Yellow followed suit, Black gets the penalty but you still get rolled by Yellow assuming they were clear ahead enough to not foul you when "re-filling" their chute (or you did not re-attack) once Black slowed. You put yourself in a tough position that simply did not work out as you had expected - and if done properly - you should have gone through with the protest so everyone could learn from it. I would say buy beers to discuss it instead of protesting - but it seems you were pretty aggressive with the 2nd attack of Black while he was already down.
  2. Or go with the Wavelength 24 instead. That is what the J24 should have been and is a more comfortable boat than both in the cockpit and the rail....
  3. The F40 was behind to the East (not South) and saw a pile of straight up sticks ahead so decided to bang a southerly flyer left to look for hookers towards Northport instead. Finding no hookers toward LI shore but gaining a bit of ground back, then went back over towards CT to get back in the game with the rest of the fleet. Educated crap shoot at best.
  4. Could it be that Eliot Carver is up to his old GPS tricks again? http://jamesbond.wikia.com/wiki/Elliot_Carver I'll get my coat....
  5. From my knowledge it is a sistership to IMP. I believe it previously was called "Secret Affair" and was raced in the Great Lakes. It was not "Midnight Sun" which was also raced in LIS.
  6. Hotspur - IOR Holland 40 still racing on Long Island Sound
