      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.

    Ya, I always understood, and then did, (not for hurricane mind you, just Noreasters) tie the pennant/lines around the mast, understanding that the cleats would likely fail

    No interest in dropping the sails? Not evening furling the headsail? nothing? Seems to point rather well.

    Hello? hints of a couple of rumors in Pen Bay. new-old regatta's coming back online. Another regatta shifting destinations, some group brewing something else up as well.. anybody heard anything? Usually I am the first to know!

    Hi Arr4ws, What type of sailing are you going to do with this boat? Thinking sail choice.

    Yes we did, and we took some notes, as (of course) GMORA (what ever that is) came up a lot. :-) I am not going to get into a big spiel of my take on it all right at this moment as I am still digesting the conversation. But I will and am quite optimistic about enthusiasm and energy looking forward. If I can share one quick takeaway -which will come up more in the future, it is that we all should look at where we are now and why we are here, what got us here?, and then ask if what we are (have been) doing, (following the past) is really for the best? (best= fun, attendance, growth, etc) gotta run!

    What would we talk about? The regatta's and races that yacht clubs and businesses are running in Maine these days? and how they can be more fun? That would be good to talk about? No?
