      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. better safe than sorry?

    I have no opinion on the topic but have one question... When has the Hobart (aka Sydney to Hobart Race) ever had a postponed start. Maybe it should have all those years ago...
  2. AC quiz....

    John Kostecki.. Silver in the Soling Class illbruck skipper in the Whitbread Oracle in the DoG and last cup.
  3. How to deal with a dangerously incompetent sailor?

    Look to your own club rules. If you have to be a member of the club to race, use the club discipline procedures to get rid of him. Going to rule 69 or other ends up involving everyone and you guys lose control of the situation. If he is going to sue, he will sue so hiding from doing anything out of fear of a court battle will result in him being the only member of the club left.... So maybe the other option is to start a new club (Club 2.0), accept the old members of Club 1.0 except Mr Problem. He can remain at club 1.0 by himself. He should be happy as his performance would improve.
  4. Artemis?

    After watching the weekend racing it seems the smartest thing to do is to team Ian Percy up with Nathan Outeridge. That would create a super combination. Ian's communication on the boat was great and something Nathan was lacking. Nathan as the helm continues to impress. What a great problem for Artemis to have.
