      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. il mostro attempting chi-mac speed run record

    Yawn. I bet a guy in an ice boat breaks the 'record' in a few months.

  3. Manhasset Fall Series

    ducking the Thin Man again
  4. That looks like the trim tab off of 'Revonoc'. Must have come unburied after Maria
  5. FT 10M

  6. 8 Bells for George Cuthbertson

    Its no reflection on George C of course, but it was shame so many poorer iterations of C&C ownership and build quality went on from the mid 80's onward. 1970's and 1980's C&C war horses still have a great fan base and demand and are distinctive. C&C owners groups may be the most loyal and proud and active of any. That's really a great legacy..
  7. FT 10M

    The FT10 forum with a ton of great info was taken down in a fit, but thank God the 2007 Annapolis Boat Show forum is archived and still available! Great if you ant to be kept up to speed on the Farr 11s!

    It is very old if you've spent time as a self admited 'heroin addict for decades'

    His family asked them to stop dragging his heart around
  10. American YC Fall Series and Leukemia Cup

    The J105 class rule seems pretty clear (assuming they apply for this regatta). Maybe the other competitors all agreed to waive this restriction for this regatta retroactively? If class rules apply it looks like the guy should have requested an exemption and have it properly posted on the notice board. If no objections, no problem. Anything after the fact always means getting caught cheati......err...... I mean sailing out of compliance. CREW/DRIVER w weight limit: 1045 lbs, with only 220 lbs of sole driver counting against the limit. §7.1. w all crew must be amateurs (ISAF group 1) and can't be paid or receive financial benefit or be related to the sailing industry; exception: 100% owner who is ISAF group 3 can sail/drive. §§ 3.1-3.9. w the driver must be at least 1/3 owner (100% if not ISAF group 1) or a ISAF group 1 who is a member of an owner's immediate family or a "long-term shipmate" of an owner. §3.4. LTS must have sailed at least 18 races with the owner and 50% of all sail boat races (other than in dinghies) in which the owner competed in last 24 months and at least 6 race days in last 12 months. §3.5.. w driver of a tiller boat must remain aft of the traveler (no straddling the traveler).
  11. American YC Fall Series and Leukemia Cup

    I agree. Your brother was an asshole to cheat and run against old men! Is he graying his hair and running in the grandfathers division now? So. which class rules are ok to ignore? There must be more.
  12. American YC Fall Series and Leukemia Cup

    Don't see this everyday.... 'Hearing reopened loulou reinstated races 1,2,3,4'
  13. Can someone help please? When a Long Island Sound regatta SIs say 'For boats racing PHRF or IRC, any weight credit/limit listed on the PHRF or IRC certificate will be waived. There will not be a minimum or maximum weight limit in effect for any PHRF or IRC boat', what does this mean exactly?
