      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.

    Whoops. It appears I'm a week early.

    Anyone hear anything from the Clipper? Looks like Chicago-Mac Sunday all over again.

    Maybe they didn't. I just didn't think we had any business passing them.

    Glad no one was hurt. We passed Skullcracker about a mile from the finish. Any idea what they broke?
  5. The light was stationary and not connected to any other lights. It could have been someone with a Q-beam on a Bayliner for all I know.
  6. Sailing slowly past Skillagalee late Monday night I noticed not only the lighthouse, but also a very bright spotlight shining on various targets (including our J/35). Anyone know who was being the good Samaritan?

    Alright, who broke what on the Mac? Bad Dog had a miserable slog of it but made it without breaking anything or anyone. Anyone have any interesting breakage photos/stories?

    Bump. I know a few of you have already registered, but just a quick reminder that MYC's Safety at Sea Seminar is scheduled for May 6 with the optional hands-on second day on the 7th. Our syllabus is getting finalized this week and the website will be updated early next week. Until then, more info and registration link here: http://www.muskegonyachtclub.org/event/2017-safety-at-sea-seminar/

    Watched one almost keep pace with a SC/GL70 downwind on Lake Michigan in 2012. Some footage from that race from the 27 here: Can't find the video shot from Windancer, but will post if I find it.
