      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. Great thread with some good links to sailing resources for the visually impaired: http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=175360
  2. Long time hs coach here with a couple of thoughts. First, good sailors don't necessarily make good coaches. Coaching is a different discipline. There are training programs for coaching hs athletics that can be helpful. I can dig them up if you're interested. Get the parents involved. Sailing can be time and travel intensive. I found that the more buy in I had from parents (willing to drive, help coordinate regattas, bring snacks, host team get-togethers, raise money), the better my team was. What's your logistics situation? Sailing out of a club? Sailing center? School facility? With other teams? Sharing boats? Hosting regattas? Gerry
  3. Might be a short lived experiment. He's currently three points behind teammate Charlie Rosenfield going into the second and final qualifier.

  8. Genius! G
  9. Jesus. You bought another boat didn't you? G
  10. Glad you all got some breeze. The chilluns and I watched the boat parade from the Prom and it looked grim. G
  11. Blowhard- That's how the coach rolls!!!!!! Thanks for all the hard work on Saturday and Sunday. BDP appreciates it. Kitty out. Agreed. Big props to the Boothbay RC. I'm not sure I would have had the stones to start that many aggressive big boats on a pretty short line from a little Whaler. Great work! G Great to see you back Eights- Congrats to Revo69 on a great day Sunday. Get the old man to come to Seguin- I'll even pay his late fee. Kitty I'm good, but not that good. I understand they are in for Monhegan. Sadly, none for me. I'm off to race in fresh water. G

  13. Add one more maple glazed upside down on top and you might have the perfect breakfast sammie. G
  14. Why do French people only eat one egg at a time? Because one egg is un oeuf. Sorry. G
  15. Help! I am looking for a Laser Radial to borrow (I ain't got no charter money) for the Healy High School Laser Regatta in Hyannis on 10/02? The Portland High School team would be very grateful... Send me a PM if you know of one or might know of one. Thanks, Gerry
