      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. Eds SC-33 Anarchy 3

    The irony here is that after 1 gawdam race, we're already pissing and moaning about the...RATING! I'm sure the gallery would lay off if the rating wasn't the first thing to gripe about.
  2. Why don't more people race?

    Sailboat racing is hard. People suck. It costs money and time. For those who enjoy it enough, they get over those things and try to get others to do the same. Sailing and racing is growing in my neck of the woods but it's taking a lot of work from many people. It also requires some folks to get over themselves and learn how to shut the fuck up.

    Roy Pat has been on each of the canters. And the implication is the rule is being changed simply because Disney wants one. So, the comment is not only stupid, but incorrectly implies the run is being changed for him. Why would it not have been changed in 05, 07 or 15? And weren't canters eligible in '05 anyway, which is why Morning Glory is on the Barn Door?

    What? The SC33 isn't a rater beater? Time to sell!!! I DFL'd my first race in my Capri 25 and came back to win my club's biggest regatta at the end of the season.

    He's already done it 3 times with canters.
  6. US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    Man, I really want that travel lift!
  7. Black Pearl

    There are definitely uglier boats out there. I wouldn't turn down a ride on this one.
  8. US Watercraft goes to Auction!

    I've always wanted my own travel lift!

    Garmin Quatix watch is sufficient. Not sure why you would much more.

    Just because you're busy doesn't mean you're food at business. All you need to do is spend more than what's coming in.

    Sorry, Alan.
  12. Team NYYC

    So, is it Allen from now on then?
  13. Hey Editor, ever heard of one design?

    About 17 years ago.
  14. Hey Editor, ever heard of one design?

    Oh geez. This has to be the dumbest thing I've ever read here. Backroom deals? Illegal? You mean picking a supplier? I'm no North fanboy, I get my sails from a small, old school loft, but this is insane. Should they have sourced all the raw mats for the boats from multiple vendors as well? It's one-design from the keel to the mast to save some $$$ for the teams. Personally, yes, I believe sail maker choice would have been better for the event and the industry, but oh my, this is a dumb gripe.

    Really interesting that Gladiator is still in TP52 mode and really doing well in the first race.
