      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.

    How dare they :-) Queue the ranting phone call to the RC from a PHRF chairman. RC got the RANT.... we will see how it all works out!

    get here as early as possible! and stay late! ;-) last week it was REALLY busy once that event kicked off.

    As of now participation looks REALLY low for frostbiting again this sunday. If you are planning to come, please PM me as soon as possible. We may be cancelling again this week if there arent enough sailors!

    I am not sure there is any answer to the phrf/sportboat issue (if there is, i certainly don't have it!) I have been on some of the said sport boats, and i grew up on a boat that at the time (80's/90's) was a pretty hot boat for its day. Lots of people on here are making solid points. but I think it comes down to club member interest. I know that a few times in the year Edgewater does Pursuit races that actually REALLY give the sport boats a challenge. I know j22's and ensigns have won them, and it really gets people out there from the club. some of the boats that race less, or are jammers get the family together and come down for the race. We start and finish them right off the shore, which gives it somewhat of a spectator appeal. Now, personally I wouldn't want to do pursuit 8-10 mile races all the time, but its nice to see and hear the excitement that buzzes around the club before and after them.

    There usually is.... Talk to some of the local highlanders, if you have 3-4 boats you can have a start.

    Lets move on... Mills Race, Cleveland Race week... here before we know it! Who is doing what?

    Rob, i wonder if you made it on survey monkey if you'd get more responses?

    They powers that be will open up a small section of the shoreway between W49th and Edgewater Park exit to allow some traffic flow. Anyone headed to EYC or points north of Rt 2 (coming from east OR west) will need to head to W49th from Detroit Ave. Then cops will open up a lane to allow 1 way traffic into and out of edgewater park exit. Its gonna be a BIG pain in the ass.

    A couple of us are free Saturday to rig. Time? Also, can we use a membership number from CYC for the damage deposit or just credit card/check/cash? Looking beautiful for Sunday...7-9 kts SSW, sunny and 50 degrees. I believe you should have gotten an updated email today. Other clubs member #s are not accepted for the damage deposit, sorry. Check/cash only. I believe you're welcome to use your CYC # in the bar after racing though? :-)

    Hey All. I know some of you have already recieved the email, some have been waiting to hear the cold weather sailing news. Frostbiting will be on this year! Here is a copy of the email i sent out to my list. I do not check SA often, so if you want the info you need to message me or contact me with your email address, otherwise you'll be left outta the loop. Side note. I welcome newbies, but prefer some sailing experience. Dinghy experienced not required, but please realize that these boats are small and tippy. We will go over capsize procedures on Day 1 and see if anyone wants to demonstrate! Alright, now that you all got sufficiently cold and wet during the Final Gun, we can start talking about Frostbiting!! > > We WILL be frostbiting yet again this year. It still amazes me how big it has become. I will send out registration forms soon so you can have them ready as soon as I get a chance to update them. Here is what you need to know! > Frostbiting will begin on Sunday Oct 21st. Show up at 9:30 (this may get bumped earlier, unless we can rig boats on the 20th- so hint hint, who wants to rig up some boats on the 20th?) at EWYC. > > Every participant does not need to be a club member, but WILL need to fill out the necessary registration and waiver. If you're interested in just helping with RC, please let me know! > > Everyone will be asked for a member # or a damage deposit of $100 to be turned in before you sail the first time. This is held on file for the season. > > NEW THIS YEAR: we are asking for a mandatory $20 registration fee. This will go towards powerboat gas, and any money at the end that is leftover will go towards the boat mainatence. (ie bungee, line, plugs, pins and rings) > > ALSO: make sure you and whoever you are sailing with are dressed appropriately. Judging by the weather lately, I am not sure we will have many of our 70+ degree weather on sunday mornings. I will send out our weather policy to everyone prior to the 21st. > > Any questions let me know- i know this was a brief email, but figured i had to get something out to the masses! > > CC

    Lee sackett (driving kerrs boat) was hit during the 1st start today (i think 1st start)- through hull damage- port starboard issue, they were on starboard. They had to go in, but were able to patch it and head back out for the 3rd race. Granted redress for the protest.
