      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 to crew - NYC area

    I've raced mostly shorthanded offshore over in Europe, mainly in Sweden and Norway and to some extent France and Ireland. Also lived in Sydney for a while and sailed a 49er. I've done a few of the classic European offshore races, including Fastnet. Have lived in NYC a couple of years now and looks like I'll be here for another while so would love to get back out on the water for some racing, the closer to NYC the better, but have a car so up for a bit of travel. Happy in most positions, shorthanded or fully crewed. Have experience from 49er, Mini Transat, Class 40, First 34.7 and others. Let me know if you're looking for crew and let's have a chat! Cheers, Nick
