      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. used gear

    Truly, not wanting to profit from others misfortune, but I am wondering where to look for some gear seeing as there are probably a large number of boats being written off in the Keys and Carribean. Recently divorced, I no longer have a racing boat but have picked up a decent CC27-5 which I want to upgrade to race. I am looking for wind instruments, a spinnaker and pole. If this is insensitive to others loss, I apologize but think of it as the organ donor who gives his eyes and kidneys to someone so they can continue to live (i.e., race). I have checke the classifieds here but don't see much. Gord
  2. Any day in the summer with a little bit of heat and humidity produces "chance of thunderstorms". That's one of the few things I refuse to sail in and having the reports unreliable irks me.

    That was me and I took responsibility for it immediately. I will do my best to make it up to Fran somehow but you are right, to miss out on the moment of receiving the well deserved trophy is regrettable. (BTW, the overall trophies he won were NOT given to a local.) Here is Fran receiving his first place flag for what we mistakenly reported as a tie. He should also have won the best shirt award.

    A certain J80 sucked in the LD but did better in the courses. Good sailing Scot, see you at CORK.

  6. Joke

    A man is walking a tightrope between the 85 floors of two adjacent skyscrapers. Meanwhile, on the 40th floor another guy is getting a blow job from an 85 year old woman with no teeth. What have they got in common? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . They're both thinking "DON'T LOOK DOWN!"

    My non-sailing wife wants to come to EYC for the American beer so we took a trip over last weekend and booked some rooms at one of the Inns. Pretty quiet at the club there.
