      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. Thanks to all.
  2. Hi all Got a long tradewind passage coming up and the boat's only got fore and aft sails currently. Anyone got any experience of using a sym spinnaker without a pole on a cruising cat? Bad idea?
  3. Prices moving http://www.paddypower.com/bet/sailing/americas-cup
  4. We're leaving West palm Beach 6/6 and getting into Bermuda about a week after that. 40' sloop and three on board already, but maybe looking for one more crew. The boat will continue on to north eastern US coast immediately after the cup. Who fancies it?
  5. Current odds at a UK bookie for the cup: Oracle 11/10 NZ 9/4 BAR 7/2 Artemis 6/1 Softbank 33/1 The frogs 100/1
