      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. Key West Dead

    The problem with Biscayne Bay is that every small keel-boat class on the planet wants to do a winter series there "just like the Jaguar Series" and for obvious reasons, it's the best winter sailing in the US. There is however a finite amount of dock space, dry storage space and dates on the calendar to run such things.
  2. KWRW Predictions?

    I have to admit I still miss the wrist bands for getting drinks rather than shelling out $$ for tickets every night. Hope to see the event bounce back in the future. They were $3 a rum drink you cheap bastard Yeah but they're free back at the crew house /s +1, or most people ended up drinking at the huge bar downstairs at the brewery anyways The Brewery was an awesome place to base the regatta. Cheap drinks, a water view and bars everywhere.

  4. I had a good laugh yesterday.... RC abuse

    I do a lot of Race Committee/PRO work and still race a lot and I think there are a lot of thin skinned Race Committees out there. If the criticism is unwarranted, laugh it off, but you should really ask yourself if there is anything to be learned from a specific criticism. If there is, be grateful for the input and use it to improve your RC game. I have never gotten anything I would call abuse while being a PRO, but would probably have a decent level of tolerance. If I felt the criticism was valid, I would say so and try to do better in the future. If I didn't feel it was valid I would say so and why. I believe that a good Race Committee should encourage input and even criticism so that they can get better
  5. 8 Bells for Tad Sanchez

    Great guy. Way too young.
  6. And which one would that be? Either Swag or Bombaloo, whichever one you don't sail on.
  7. Good, bring the other Barrington J24 with you.
  8. I dealt with a club once that after a large One Design Regatta, sent the class a bill for use of the club PA System at the awards, use of the club hoist to launch boats and about a dozen other nickle and dime charges not disclosed up front. They decided after the fact that they should make more money off of the largest One Design Keelboat Fleet they had seen in 15 years. A packed bar for a week and a few hundred dinners weren't enough. Irritating.
  9. Distance Racing in New England

    Bristol Yacht Club and Ida Lewis have a race in June that starts at the top of Narragansett Bay goes south through the bay out around Block and back up. It's a very old race that has been lightly attended lately, but they are trying to breathe new life into. I think there's a trophy for best combined finish in this race and Ida distance race. It's called Sid Clark, or something like that.
  10. Flotsam from CF

    Wasn't Frank Mighetto from the Pacific Northwest?
  11. Yeah, well, it's a guy, so... I never noticed that this was not even 33 feet of ugly. Now they are exagerating their length. You are correct! You know, I thought it looked bigger than a 35 footer and then realized it's because the two people offer scale. Do you think they search for midgets to put in the ad to make the boat look bigger?

    Those are some damn nice delivery sails, #200
