      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.

  15. BANANAS !!!! Good to eat on land, bad for boats. Let me tell you of my experiences with bananas and boats. Back in 2002 Someone on the crew had brought banana bread on board during a race weekend. When we found it at lunch time it was thrown overboard but obviously not soon enough. Later that day it was the last race of a weekend long regatta in Portsmouth NH. At the start of the final race we were tied with another boat for a podium finish. The finish order of this race would dertemine who wins. Final upwind leg, about 100 yards from the finish line we are on starboard the other boat on port. Looks like we are on the layline for the pin and will win. Large gust comes down the course, the other boat cannot dump their main fast enough. The captain of the other boat could not duck due to the main overpowering the rudder. They hit us two feet from the stern. It takes off the stern railing and a few other important pieces. July 2008 Sequin Island Race. Sunday morning a crew member tries to get on the boat while eating a banana. Told to throw banana in the water. Doesn't, but continues to eat it while holding onto boat. Finishes and gets on boat. (Note to Self: Next time send crew member back to dock to watch race from shore). Later that night boat hit by lightening, today boat still sitting on the hard. Not a fan of bananas on boats.
