      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. John MacLaurin. RIP.

    One of the good guys of sailing. Six Pendragons by my count, 5 Davidsons and 1 Farr 40. Throw in a Davidson 30 (morc) an ultimate 30 of sorts and when I first raced against him, a Peterson 25 1/4 ton (shadowfax). Sailed on the 1st two Pens' and the morc stardancer. The purple boat was the most fun (before the keel was put on) especially in light air and chop. Was untouchables! I remember the Cal YC juniors ask on a whim if they could use Pen' II for their junior cruise to Catalina. "Just have it back by Wednesday night".
  2. DH Pac Cup boat

    This years transpac class winner has. They have a Facebook page. Search "Dark star racing"
  3. SB/KH #45

    Extending the boom another 5' wouldn't hurt either. how do the big sails affect the balance?
  4. SB/KH #45

    Yep, it requires a match and a little lighter fluid!
  5. Random PicThread

    Ground zero? The bridge survived?
  6. Plastrend/Composite Technology 1976 Peterson 1/4 Ton

    Star Eyed Stella was at SWYC in the late '70s. would be very surprised if she was still there. Mmmm well into the 80's at least It's still there. Looking a little beat up. And not from sailing!
  7. Can YOU land a plane if you have to?

  11. Hotfoot 20 hoist

  12. Cheap light wind PHRF machine..

    Holder 20 with a masthead chute. Unbeatable in the very light stuff. 2 up it sailed right by a Moore 24 and caught up to a j92 in a 10 mile race.
  13. NOOD's San Diego March 18-20

    They did more wing on wing sailing than reaching. So no big adjustment from j24 sailing! Jay Golison owns the viper with Steve Flam.
  14. Sled Driver - Blackbird Stories

    Great find. Thanks
  15. "National Cleavage Day"

    The most unbelievable part of that fantasy is that it's happening on a single aisle four-across regional jet. Imagine what kind of service row 1,2, and 3 get!
