      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. FP - "why PHRF fails"

    I would bet that if the times in which Valkyrie won by, were calculated against the "what it should be" PHRF number, they still would have won. It would have been a TON closer between them and the M32, but they still would have won. They won by minutes (like more than 5 or 6 before corrected time), each race, not seconds. Gift rating or whatever, they probably would have still won the regatta. The M32 and C&C sailed really well, but the conditions never showed up where they would light up downwind the way they can. If the regatta was 18-20 every day, I bet this thread, and story may not be happening. But, yes, the rating systems are jacked, OD is better, blah blah blah, just go f*ckin' sailing.
  2. LBRW (Long Beach Race Week)

    It was kinda funny that there was a true sportboat (M32, CC30, Bolt 38, to name a few) class out there and Scooter wasn't there with his. There may be a deeper story here.... But, the race committee on our courses were really good, and everyone I spoke with had a great time with some interesting conditions. Totally a regatta worth doing if you are anywhere between Santa Barbara and San Diego.
