      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. Is that really the backstay behind the crossbar of the lift?
  2. And just to twist your brain a little more, that race never happened. and thats a good thing! Is not! :-( Seriously, it was the right call, but a bummer to be second at the mark only to have it blown off.

  4. http://gibsonisland.com/yachtsquadron/race-regattas/j35-north-american-championship/ Results, photos, etc. I'll let someone who saw or felt, instead of just heard, tell about Medicine Man. And that one photo of the start with Scot-Free/Windependent in the foreground is my new wallpaper. Nail one start in two weekends and all is forgiven by the crew.....
  5. Scratch sheet is up. http://gibsonisland.com/yachtsquadron/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/J35-North-Americans-Scratch-Sheet.pdf Look for something soon about a J/35 OD start with the Magothy River Wednesday night group on 9/8. No cost, just an excuse for a shakedown.....
  6. We thought about the Mid-Atlantics last year, but didn't quite pull it together. Don't be surprised if we make it this Fall. We've done a couple of Annapolis Race Week's and an Oxford weekend. Problem is that the Annapolis clubs seem to always put us on the Thomas Point course -- making for a long delivery. If anyone needs a place to stash a boat or two before or after the NA's, let me know. We can probably come up with some free or low cost options.
  7. Bump, How Annapolis-centric of you. :-) Charlie and Eighth Deadly Sin are pretty active in PHRF north of the Bridge. Rampage really does exist, but may not be One-Design conforming -- they usually do Gov Cup in NS. Scot-Free is for sale. And Uncle Joe is new to them.
  8. Bump, that was Ballyhoo.
  9. Gibson Island has a small hotel about .25 miles from the boathouse that I understand will be available. There isn't much else close, but I'll keep my eyes open for possible rentals. Would you know the name of that hotel? It's part of the Gibson Island Club. Mark McG (regatta chair and class prez) may have contact info, and it should be mentioned in the NOR, etc. when it comes out.
