      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.

    We decided that when you've completed 13 races to Waukegan you become a raccoon. Kinda like a goat but with much less dignity and self respect. If you remember Mathons you are automatically inducted. We will celebrate all raccoons next year up there. We had a lot of time to kill on the foggy motor back yesterday, can ya tell? Ummm...plank whitefish!

  7. J/111 Goes Sailing...

    Sweet... Where's the masthead kite In the first minute (or so) of the video they are flying a masthead kite; the second two thrids of the video the fractional kite is up. Being from SF I liked seeing the fractional option. And hey, isn't the boat in the video (sail number 60111)IMPULSE, the boat that raced in the Chicago - Michigan City Race? per the comments under the video on the youtube page, the 111 is only rigged with a MH kite...they were flying the kite from the jib halyard in that portion of the vid.
