      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.

    So the only way Chris doesn't win the worlds is if someone else sails one of his boats. Those are some pretty amazing designs.

    Here are some pics of String Theory sailing at the Richmond Yacht Club last weekend. I know that TalonF4U posted a good review of the racing on another SA topic, but let me repeat one bit. On the first leg of the first race, the ICs, DCs and I14s all went off together in perhaps 10-12 knots of wind. Chris, on String Theory, worked his way out to the front of the pack until about halfway up the first leg when he blew a tack and went for a swim. Del sailed by on Donkey and put about 200 yards between him and Chris. Chris righted the boat, then beat Del (by a few yards) and all the 14s to the windward mark. The entire leg probably took 15 minutes -- this wasn't a super long course. String Theory is just scary fast upwind. Doug
