      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. Looking for J24 Crew Lake Champlain Area

    They would only be in the North East.
  2. I am looking for a trimmer to sail on my J24 here in the north east. Beer Can out of Plattsburgh, and then a handful of travel races. Get in touch!
  3. Is this the America's Cup?!

    Sadly this seems to be the new America's Cup... however I agree they do not follow the DOG...boats are now sponsored by corporations with the country second, instead of clubs located in the country. They couldn't even go as far as to have sponsors from the country the boats are representing. That being said I am still watching and cheering on "Team USA" even if they chose to hold the race outside of the country, sponsored by a non US company (BMW) and have very few actual Americans on board.
  4. It needs to go back to country v country, and less expensive (be even better if it was cheap) boat. It can be excited, it can be a cat, but make it more affordable. Allow a country to have their own trials, to see who will represent them, similar to the Olympics. Use the idea of the USA defending it against (whoever it may be) to grow the sport. Let the average sailor, and the average Joe have a feeling of pride in their boat, and not just the corporation that created the boat. Just my thought, whats yours? Tim
  5. This past year I was voted in as Commodore of our local small club. One of my goals is to start a junior sailing program. We currently have no high school or college team. My thought is to get a grant for a J24, allow high school and college kids to take the boat out to sail/race with a club member to start excitement with sailing. Use that as a jump off point to try to get a youth program going. What are your thoughts? Anyone out there have experience starting a junior sailing program? Thanks! Tim
