      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.

    Just to clarify the "fleet was no match for the wetas" comment. One finished first, one weta finished second beating third by 10 seconds, and one weta was dfl I believe the reason I did so well was the two years worth of sit ups I've been doing that allows the ability to hike off the back corners of the amas, hence driving the boat much harder. It's a gamble that you sometimes lose, ending with a pitch pole capsize due to the hotter angle in which lift is decreased thru the bowsprit generated by the reacher. It can lead to a capsize faster than I can react sometimes. But it paid off big time with one eye always upwind with the reacher flying. I flew it much more than the other wetas. I also pre-sailed the course a month ago with a higher north wind, and knew what to expect with the super shifty conditions. I put the time and effort into sailing as hard as I could and truly believe the weta PN is to high for wind over 20+ kts. But is it fair for one sailors results to dictate a ratings change? Heck if I know! https://www.strava.com/activities/522386916
