      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.

    A starting point to a merger could be to take the avg for any ratings that are not the same. This new rating becomes your new rating This takes most bias out of either organization
  2. New J designs

    I think they'll go after the Alerion customer harder with a smaller and larger J100. They have some strength in the OD market in the 70/88 to work with there and the mid-thirties - 40's market for Racer Cruiser is collapsing back to the smaller, easier to manage OD classes - especially as the larger boat owners age. We could be in an industry transition to where those with the ability to afford the larger race boat opt to split those $$ between a larger day sailor/cruiser and a smaller OD boat like the 70 or 88.

    All freshwater NE boats except one. It would be great to see 5-10 more on the line!

    Where are the fleets forming? There are 5 88's actively racing on Lake Ontario at Youngstown Yacht Club. Any other multiple boat areas?

    5 88's on the line at this past weekend's CanAm Regatta in Youngstown NY. Good pics here: http://www.timwilkes.com/search.php?searchoption=all&searchtext=CA14+Night%20Owl&searchtype=all

    Did you run into any interference issues with the magnetic compass and the stern pulpit? That's my only concern mounting an antenna so close to metal.

    More j88's signed up than J105's 5 J/88's now. Hoping to get a couple more.

  9. AC Youth Cup

    They had Travis Rice out there yesterday for a guest ride along. Travis has the opportunity to pull eyeballs to the Sport of sailing. Not sure how the youth series will play out, but it's good to see RedBull in the mix since they know how to expose sport/market to a younger demographic - something sailing desparately needs to grow

  11. Lake Ontario Anarchy

    It was RHYC - LYRA 1980. The Commodore's Tanzer 22 ended up in the pool. Not sure of the details since I was 12 at the time but there is a photo in the club's Centennial book. I think that was the same year someone drained the RHYC pool too.
