      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. The Next Boat-----2020

    also....the thought of two gybes downwind and two tacks upwind(relative to the last americas cup) is stupid. maybe the new course could involve some sort of slalom which would increase the odds of a trailing boat (due to touching down) the chance to close the gap. i'm not against foiling or hard wings, but this is going to be lame. it is too similar to the last bit of racing.
  2. The Next Boat-----2020

    geez, to me, this design seems stupid. as of now, they might as well stay with the catamarans. why the need for foiling and hard wings? the trickle down sustainability to other classes is bull shit. there will be none of that for other classes. the dial ups will be lame as they will need to stay far away from one another or they will hook each other underwater. no spinnakers or other sail changes?...lame. if this is the concept, just stay with foiling catamarans. or step back to a relatable match racing boat with real crew logistics and sail configurations.

    stoked to read the story about elvis on the front page(i still don't believe there is a front page, but...). jeff is one of many local, just older than me, talented sailors i grew up with and admired when i was younger and still admire today from the ventura area. good on ya buddy and keep up the good work. it's nice to see some writing about your successes.
