      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. SoCal Race M&A

    Good job Bill on the trackers and combining the races, now we need some pro video footage or some way that boats can send video to Nosa for a pro to make a great video and promote it for next year
  2. Race tracking

    Trackers should not be delayed, many boats have AIS and that data is not delayed. Nothing worse that watching the Transpac start and nothing shows on the computer for hours.
  3. Race tracking

    Yes Bill, great idea. NOSA needs to get with the program and bring a little more technology to the race. I know we enjoy the AIS data, those without AIS would be able to see how their competition is doing, NOSA website might end up being more interesting to follow. Those crew members who can't make the race can follow positions and speed and have drinking games or cry in their beer because they are missing out doing 20 knots. No time delay, who is that serious anyway that they don't want to share data
  4. Make N2E Great Again

    All boats should have yellow brick trackers but not have the silly 4 hour delay like transpac so the public or those on SA can follow the race. Get some professional reporters to keep race info up to date like Fastnet race. Look into how/what the English do to attract so many boats to their races. http://www.rolexfastnetrace.com/ Yacht club board members need to get more involved in getting and helping boat participation, (what does Dana Point Yacht Club do?)

  7. Maserati on Foils

    The rudders have trim tabs flaps, the hoses you see are go to the cylinder on top of the rudder that operate the flaps
  8. Transpac mulitis

    Great, they are a great bunch of guys and Jason will be using a sextant the whole trip. Much more comfort than the crews on the tri's, we also got to go on board Comanche and there is no comfort on that boat either.
