      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.

    Harteck was back in the results - his boat was set up for heavy air the whole first day even though we only saw about 12 knots. His rig had less than an inch of spreader rake and his diamonds were off - that wigged out his main luff. Sunday morning he did some tuning and went much better, even though the wind was off, which used to be his Achilles heel. We miss Larry in the cat fleet - he needs to put the big boats away and start going fast again. I only get to see that guy once a year anymore, but every time it's a pleasure.

    H16s: 1st Petron 2nd Rex Miller 3rd Jeff Perlmutter (I think?) F18s: 1st Key/Williams 2nd Thomas/Bernier 3rd DeLave/Haubl (I think?) South wins the North/South Challenge. Great weekend, light breezes, lots of free salad in the right-hand corner. Harteck and SBYC are killer hosts.
