      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. Round The County 2017

    A link to the write up should be on the SA front page. Well written, enjoyable to read, nice detail, and gets me stoked for more sailing. Thanks for taking the time to summarize the greatest race in America so well. Your finish elicited as many groans as it did cheers...I loved it, even after sitting there for what felt like an eternity. So much fun!

    I want to be an enabler. Thinking the West Marine Gold Advantage towing package will be be my first purchase in the name of Rimas. Then we can move on from the towing issue. He only needs an annual tow in and out. I see them hauling charter guys and derelict fishing boats every week back past the cap. Has part deux of the interview been put out yet?

    Careful RKoch (and all of us other people posting), your volume of posts that boost the ego of a deranged man could be viewed as enabling. Don’t think he doesn’t value his own popularity. Your posts keep this thread at the top of the SA discussions and continue to stoke the fire. You alone could be responsible for his sustenance in which food and water are no longer necessary. Or sails. Or tiller. Just dreams and fame. Way to go.

    Wow, unclench your buttcheeks and pull the stick out of your arse. Really, you would prefer him dead? That is insane. The guy hasn't cost you a penny. He got a few tows back into port. Big deal. The dude is chasing his dream. Chill. Go back to Fox News or something. There isn't a conspiracy, the "enablers" are normal people who find his personality likeable enough they don't want to see him dead so they help where they can, the guy is learning on blue water not some bullshit lake or bay most of us sail on, he's lucky as a leprechaun, and more resilient than most. Be stoked he's figured out how to make it (life) work for him and it doesn't have to be what you choose.

    Furnish drops the bomb and the responses from those named all read like a bunch of mast, enablers, had a to get a tow, sleep drifting, gag, gag, gag....enjoy the chicken. Ahaha. You have to hand it it to the crazy Russian. True grit. Dude is tougher than whale shit and probably smells like it too. Somehow he finds a way. I'm happy to see he made it.

    Stoked! Kite ride tonight is looking more and more fun.

    I think Rimas will take care of that until next port he finds Sailor who Loves. A stalker boy like you should know a bit more about "Faith"

    Hey Stalker, maybe you need to find a new boyfriend. Creepy.

    I'm looking forward to staring up at the kite with the Perseids backdrop. Hoping for breeze and planning with beer for another beautiful race regardless of race conditions.

    5. AYC on Friday night and stay at home in my cozy bed...sorry had to rub it in. Tides/current look good for the run out. Ebb until slack at 8:45ish in the Guemes Channel should push right along. For those unfamiliar and considering options, it is about 10 miles out to Lydia Shoal from Anacortes.

    All booked at Snug and stoked for this race again...can't wait!
  12. PHRF PNW handicappers

    Vive le PHRF! Any good designer can work around a measurement rule. IRC guys will be back, and if they like what they have that's cool too. Thanks for the info LimeyB. I like the idea of one cert for the PNW, if the groups could at least just settle the base ratings into one database that would be great. There is room for two entities to coexist, but a little collaboration would be good. Protesting/appealing sucks, but I can't think of a way around it. Reliance on US sailing won't work for many of the one offs and short production runs. Takes time and adjustments to get things right. Thanks to all the volunteers, best $50 spent all year.
  13. nice joke u posted!
