      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.

    We're going to do a Friday evening pursuit race around the cans the weekend of the regatta, with a length of about 2 miles for anyone who wants to get in a practice race. Winner will sail in the Spring Fling for free. Keg will be waiting for us at the ramp. Come early and join the chaos and sail a triangle, once around.

    Current list or pre-registrations for the CYC Spring Fling Regatta: Hanks Saurage Bruce Zurbuchen David Smith Alan Jess Mike Hallett Robert Kembel Mark McNamara Charles Schmidt Alan Jess Tim Kraft Joseph Sircely Matt Harden Pat Gibson Ellen Burks & Sylvie Mathis Ash Beatty Darin Keever Jeff Jones Derek McKesson Mike Lindstrom Jenny Loehlin These are sailors who have registered online with the CYC website. There are at least 15 others I have talked to who plan on coming. For the record, this event is on the District 15 Laser schedule and I don't have one boat registered. They are notorious for showing up the day of the event. I'll take 'um anyway. As I have boasted: WE PLAN TO PARTY! KEG FOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHT PROVIDED BY YOURS TRUELY. AND I HAVE A SURPRISE SETUP FOR DINNER ON SATURDAY NIGHT. BRING YOUR DANCE'N SHOES. Thanks, all.

    Trying to get trophies ordered; any more TCC sailors coming to Spring Fling? Ortega? Mikey? Jenny? Claire? Anyone?

    Not everyone will be able to sail the EVO like Rod. The ability of the sailor has always been part of Portsmouth ratings. Where there are big fleets and good sailors, the ratings come down. Where there are a lot of new-to-the-boat sailors, not so much. The EVO is faster than an Aero downwind for sure, probably close going to weather. With that said, an Aero is damn fast downwind with the right skipper. All depends on who's on the helm. But I think saying the Evo is 12.5+ points faster than the Aero is not fair to the EVO. Besides, I'm going to buy one and I need all the help I can get.

    Charlie, I think the CYC regatta at the end of April would be a good place and time. Our club is pretty good for foil launching with a nice sandy beach and no rocks. He could be part of the party. He will have a much larger audience than the other events. Especially those who might be interested in a foiler.

    Jim, The AYC Governor's Cup regatta has been the opening regatta for The Texas Centerboard Fleet for several years now. Last year it blew hard (mid 20s) and kept several of our usual sailors on the dock. Hopefully, this year will bring a little lighter breeze and be a good one, once again. Thanks for the note and see you all soon. So you can spread the word to your centerboard folks there at AYC, Conroe Yacht Club (CYC) will hold it's annual Spring Fling Regatta at the end of April. This weekend event hosts the Texas Centerboard Fleet, District 15 Lasers, Texas Sunfish, VX Evo stop and the RS Aero Texas State championship. This year will be a party, both Friday and Saturday night. Bring your Advil. Lindy
