      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. Sad news, Paul Elvstrom passed away

    A very sad day for our sport. Paul Elvstrom was definitely one of the good guys in sailing. For those of a certain age (yikes) he loomed large in our sailing psyche. I would often think of him on those interminable third weather legs of Finn Gold Cups. Despite having sissy pads and hiking pants .... my legs would be screaming with pain (or asleep). There in my thoughts would be Paul in the 50's and 60's with no such aids ... wearing a bunch of water soaked sweaters ... hiking his Finn flat. It was always good for a bit more hiking motivation ... Then of course there was the fun of fooling around with the little plastic boats in the back of the Elvstrom Rules Book ... He was an icon. Fair Sailing Paul!
  2. US Finn trail shit soup

    Boy does this bring back bad memories from the trials in 1984! All we need now are the Yachting Buffalo's at US Sailing to spend $100K in litigation fees to get their guy on the team for Rio! Fortunately it looks like it was ultimately resolved on the race course.
  3. never fuckin' mind

    Chancho. When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It's for fun.
  4. My favorite book ever, to funny.

    PS: I think you might recognize a contributor to this forum standing on the stern .....
  6. Locura Soveral 43

    George and Ricardo brought the 50' Locura out for the Big Boat Series 1989 & 1990(?) ... I just threw away an old Locura T-shirt. Peter Isler steered the boat one year and the next year they brought in Dicko. In fact he did such a shitty job ... he was relieved of the helm by the last day.
