      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. I just want to sign that point That race run at light wind, I realy wonder medium or heavy conditions .
  2. leaving upwind mark on starboard side may couse some rule problems on fleet race ?
  3. I Think that, with a single rating number is not enough for all weather conditions and all courses, Light boats can win all light weather races and down wind races, but oposite in heavy conditions heavy disp. boats can win also Examples: farr 30s can win all down wind races , First 40s can win all up /down races in heavy conditions, ( these boats boats ratings are so close each other / farr 30 IRC rating 1.075-1.080, BFirst 40 IRC rating is 1.080-1.082 ) What dou you think who is the winner in light or heavy condition ? Melges 32s can also win all light up/ down wind races If there is an old one tonner in your fleet you can never beat her exept planning conditions. So ORC gives different ratings for different conditions and courses, but IRC not.
  4. Just comparing both, Sure OneDesign racing is perfect but if there are not enough boat around you for OD racing and still want to race, need something ?
  5. What do you think about rating systems? Which is more fair ?
