      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. The J 24 fleet is far from dead. We have a few new owners this year and all of last years fleet is schedule to return this year. Sure we would always like to see more boats.
  2. Not my boat, but it is a Peterson 25 flush deck. Rated198 in SoCal in 2013. Don't know why the ad says 28'. Hasn't been sailed in a long time. If you want the boat give the owner a call. He may be open to offers.
  3. No Jaded this weekend. Sailing Lasers,
  4. 3 Big Dogs win J 24 North Americans. Great Job
  5. Hardway, First overall Spinn Coastal Bullet
  6. Holiday Regatta. How did it go today?
  7. Why won't the Ventura Cup just go away? The SBCC could be a great regatta without the BS of the cup following it. Rush street is coming down from SB along with Fatuity from SBSC. SB will missed this year. Always look forward to sailing against your boats. See you at the Holiday Regatta, the last race of the little know ASBCYC high point series.
  8. I vote for Saturday, and let 21' sport boats race without lifelines.
  9. How about just plain old tacking to close. Blue had to alter course just to miss hitting white during theor tack.
  10. "If you can't understand the difference between the yacht club challenge at LBRW (secondary trophy) and the Ventura Cup (grand prize), then I guess we will never come to any understanding. I'd propose you just retire the trophy before dumbing it down to this format of three races- two of which are random leg courses around oil rigs. If you are measuring the success of the regatta by attendance instead of the quality of racing, then we disagree. If you measure the regatta by how much money you make in raffle and drink sales, then we disagree." J.A.G. has hit the nail on the head. The V cup should be retired for a while. Non-spinn and Ventura Cup don't add up.

  12. Sorry guys. No Capo. Insurance? So everone will have a chance to kick some jaded ass.
  13. I will be driving a Capo 26 named Bubbles. The boat is new to Ventura. Sure it wood be more fun to drive a newer more exciting ride, but here in the land of John Deeres a 20 year old boat is the newest thing. After last year there was a promise for a Farr 40. Still holding my breath on that. See you all next week.
