      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. Odd post, apologies! A small group of us will be in Barcelona on Sept 3rd. I'd love to get out for a sail, and see the city from the water. Any chance someone would be willing to connect?

    hey Cats, since our boats are so stable and easy to sail compared to a Moth, we must be the ideal candidates for wing experiments. the C-class cats clearly wish they could get rid of that other useless hull, and we are already there! I like the wing idea, but have no desire to sail a boat wider than my car, or sail two boats at once! cheers, K I will never put a wing on a canoe. However, I will be in Germany for Worlds this summer. Currently my foot is broken and in a protective boot. Hopefully be recovered for HPDO on Columbus day. Best, Willy hey Willy, off topic here, but the trailer is semi finished. windows and screened door for camping to come Epic Kenny! Looks great!

  4. Bethwaite is the father of modern high performance sailing, and this book is the bible. Unfortunately its tough as hell to read. When I first got this book, the advice I got was find a section that interests you (weather for me) and start there. Good Advice!
