      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.

    Try this.... There is a simple solution to this. It is individual boat handicapping. Here is how it breaks down. Boat A wins a race. Boat B takes 2nd in the same race. Boat C takes 3rd. Boat D takes 4th in the same race. Boat who is last on corrected time. Boat A receives a -6 sec per mile for the next 6 races Boat B receives a -4 sec per mile for the next 4 races Boat C receives a -2 sec per mile for the next 3 racesBoat D and others except for last place boat stay at last rated handicap. The last place corrected Boat receives a +6 sec per mile for the next 6 races.Over a period of time, things will average out and level out the field. The yacht club I grew up at was considering taking the last 3 boats and giving them +6,+4,+3 adjustments respectively. But that only works on larger fleets 10 boats or more or with overall results. Also if you have taken a 1st -3rd and get last place within the last 6 races you don't get 6 secs back. This has been tested and used successfully for years in Southern California it works!

  7. money wins!

    Typical thinking of a Leftist!!!! That is so funny to hear from someone that used to make a living in sailmaking. So should we be like Pee Wee football or baseball and remove scoring, everyone should just get a participation award and not have winners or losers? Someone must be a have not and is a bit jealous of someone that has a lot!!!
