      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. Onefly foiler

    It's a moth
  2. I'm not a scow guy but i was honored to sail for the owner. I had to make sure the batteries were connected so the boat wouldn't sink at the moning.

  4. The Idem of Upper St Regis Lake in the Adirondacks, up state NY, USA. A friends father bought a lake house there and told he me that part of the purchase conditions for the house was that the Idem had to be kept in sailing trim as it was part of the deed to the house. It's pretty much a scow except for the pointy bow. I got to helm for the owner one evening 25 years ago. Mainsail trimmer sits all the way aft. "Idem is a 32-foot gaff-rigged racing sloop designed by Clinton Crane in 1899 for the members of the St. Regis Yacht Club; the first seven boats raced in 1900. An even dozen was built by the St. Lawrence Boat Company over the next several years. The cost of the first boats was $750 each. 1 They have been racing annually on Upper St. Regis Lake ever since, the original boats having been restored or rebuilt many times since; some are still being piloted by descendants of the original owners. It is believed to be the oldest one-class racing design that is still sailed in the United States."

    That is the question... and when you look at the screen grab above with the assist of you folks, the line off of ETNZ's sterns show OTUSA had the overlap. Good call then!

    So, back to the bowsprit then

    Wait, overlap is not defined by a 1 boat length over lap, or is that an AC rule? I thought it was your bow versus their stern?
  8. Live Racing Thread

    What about this part; (ii) if yachts are not overlapped, the yacht that has not reached the zone shall thereafter give mark-room. I guess I need a lesson on an overlap. Seems ETNZ had the overlap but I reserve the right to be wrong...
  9. Live Racing Thread

    but ETNZ was first, so who had the overlap? Doesn't the first boat have the overlap?
  10. Live Racing Thread

    A tad too close...
  11. BAR is a dangerous Motherfucker thread

    Nah, fully extended leeward foil would stop them from crushing the leeward boat. BAR took the most damage.
  12. Live Racing Thread

    ^ the vid above says something else... Now I'm confused, which is a state normal to me!
  13. Live Racing Thread

    I did not take into account the bow sprit... that may be the extra few feet needed as I was looking at hulls only
  14. Live Racing Thread

    Sooo, bad call?
  15. Live Racing Thread

    Agreed, I didn't think OTUS had it either... Not quite 40 knts tho. See your screen grab above. At these speeds we almost need a replay rule... Do judges have access to the overhead views - with the circle graphic?
