      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. N2E Wx Thread- Could Be Interesting

    The models have been struggling outside of 96 hours so all of this is likely to change. The GFS has a 29.76mb Low is near Las Vegas on race day. A somewhat anemic high and associated ridge covers the far Eastern North Pacific. Its a modest gradient as of this morning's update to be sure but with a full 9 days between now and the blue flag, I suspect even the macro features will change. The EURO is a bit more bullish with a slow moving low WNW of San Francisco and a meager high to the SW of Los Angeles. Neither scenario are looking particularly entertaining ATM. More later.

    No complaints here about their forecasts...They help keep my private weather forecasting in business :-).
  3. The 2018 Newport to Ensenada Race begins next Friday (April 27). The long range models are hinting at the storm door opening back up in the Thursday/Friday time frame. Obviously a system rolling through early Friday AM would be ideal. The GFS is more bullish on this idea than the ECMWF. The ECMWF has done a better job at the longer range model accuracy...We'll keep an eye on it as things progress.
  4. HURRICANE SEASON 2018-LESS THAN 100 DAYS AWAY

    We are now one month out for the start of Eastern Pacific Hurricane season...November 30, 2017 doesn't seem that long ago....(The end of the 2017 season)
  5. CRW 2018

    9-12 on the inside today. 5-9 on the outside. Sunday looks better...except for the drive home/flights out.
  6. Lagoon Marina St Maarten

    Bernard and the crew at Lagoon Marina have been some of our favorite customers over the years. We did send an email but did not hear back. I am pretty sure tee shirts are not at the top of their list of things they need to deal with after the hurricane. Sailing Anarchy has always been a great way to find out what's going on in pretty much any part of the Caribbean so I thought I would ask. Sorry if that offended you in some way. Have a good week.
  7. BACARDI 2018 MOTH WORLDS-BERMUDA

    This dude is unstoppable. Congrats to Paul for a third WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
  8. Lagoon Marina St Maarten

    I hope that Bernard and the crew at Lagoon Marina are back on their feet post hurricane IRMA. Anyone know how they came out of it?
  9. BACARDI 2018 MOTH WORLDS-BERMUDA

    Day 1 blown out. 25-40 knots. Windy but fun on tap for tomorrow.
  10. Wx East and West...

    IIn the wake of this latest storm over the west, a small craft advidory is in effect from this afternoon through Monday for the coastal waters of So Cal. Time for some epic spring sailing. Will be colder tomorrow as an impulse from the Gulf of Alaska comes through.
  11. The 2018 BACARDI MOTH WORLDS get underway this weekend. For one week, the fastest single-handed sailors on the planet will be competing for the coveted Yellow Jersey from DryUV.

    While the Northeast gets Tee'd up for another Nor'Easter (That's four in three weeks if you haven't been counting) the West Coast is getting some much needed snow pack in the Sierras. We are also getting some unneeded rain in the form of downpours in the Montecito/Santa Barbara area where on January 9th 23 people were killed when a wall of mud and debris roared down from the hills above following the largest fire in California history. The low pressure system that was previously forecast to exit the area Thursday may hang around a bit longer and that could be bad news for the Santa Barbara/Montecito/Ventura area where a LOT of ANARCHISTS live. Hoping for the best for you all. If you have photos of the devastation where you live regardless of where that might be...Share them here please. It is always a good reminder that Mother Nature is in charge and we are just match sticks in the toilet when things get ugly. The radar image is from 0815PDT this morning. Cloud flow is to the ENE.
  15. PV Race

    Thank you Nick for such a comprehensive reply. I love watching the races through yellow brick and look forward to seeing how the boats are coming along now. Have a great Tuesday.
