      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. J111 Sailing on the Great Lakes--Summer 2016

    Humbling. Learned a ton. Loved it. Can't wait for the Mac! Hroth excellent, some boats have been sailed for quite some time. great seeing you guys on the line, enjoy the Mac. They are a pretty sweet boat for the run North. You guys stepped on to a great class of OD sail boat racing Great people, you mentioned you learned a lot, do not forget to ask, every one is willing to help Thank you to all the volunteers that helped putting 2016 J 111 NA event together, John Travis, Len Siegle, Chicago Yacht Club at Belmont just to name a few It was our third NA in the Class and one World regatta, we also learned a lot in this class . We learned that people are kind , we learned that in tough times every one in the class will give you a big hug Unfortunately it may have been our last regatta on the Mighty Wotton due to the circumstances Sail on Bill Smith Dorin Team Wooton I'm so glad Bill had a chance to work into a great one design class. His skill at taking a challenge and working through all the best solutions, building the team, was leading him to the same success as he had in development. Does any one know what the name Wooton is from? It's a desk! But not any desk a very fine unique desk that I can best describe as the Smart Phone of the 19th century. Look it up. He was a 21st century Renaissance man. Big ideas and follow through. That's what Bill could do, see the best of the best and be on the lead edge of progress. I will miss his frienshp and the great insight that Bill has brought to all things. Team Wooton Arv

  3. Chicago Area III

    I don't think there is any racing this weekend. However, checking the A3 website, there is only 1 entry for ALL races this year so far. What gives?
