      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.

    Still cannot understand why you choose this place. Watching from in front of GGYC you can see the complete course. Can you do this from the west bleachers? But is there a big screen there in front of GGYC? I'd like to see the boats, from the shore, but need to e able to follow the racing on a screen. Oh, or be with people who can follow it on mobile devices I suppose From the shore with big screens would be ideal. Can someone confirm if there is a big screen out by StFYC? If so, sounds like that's the place. TK, Surly, et al. who have been at Marina--cool with walking out onto the spit tomorrow? (yellow oval on attached image). Someone who has been out there call out a landmark that would be easy to find. There are about 13 big screens inside St. Francis YC, but none outside, and none outside GGYC and none down at the jetty (spit) at the end of the seawall that runs between StFYC and GGYC The western most big screen is at AC village at Marina Green where the other anarchists have been hanging out.

    Noice! What community is all about! Related to this--if there are Anarchists in town who are largely immobile and have special needs/requests that can't be found easily within the City, I will be coming up in my car from San Jose tomorrow and am happy to stop by a Sporting Goods store or otherwise and deliver it to you. I draw the line at hookers and blow, though. In seriousness, if you are in a pinch and need something, PM me.

    I'll repeat - DO NOT USE CABS in SF. They are beserk, never on time, and will rip you off. Use ride share services. Very civil, clean cars, know where they are going, and the drivers (and occasional other passengers) are always interesting. https://www.uber.com/ http://www.lyft.me/ http://www.side.cr/ Download the apps from iTunes and Google Play and book them from your phone. Thanks Krispy, actually i did hear you the first time but arrived into SF exhausted after a 12 hour flight jam packed into a 737 filled to capacity with no leg room for someone over 6" and on top of that i had a very grumpy 4 y/o boy with me...just wanted to get to a-b quickly, and we did but i am pretty sure our driver had mental health issues and was taking them out on anyone in his path or even alongside our path. Will go with your suggestions now our feet are on the ground.. went down to Bay street today to visit scope city to buy a few sets of Bino's at the address as listed in their website,...turns out they closed down a year ago ../want to buy steiners marine models so looks like i am going to have to head out of town maybe to a hunting shop so will look for a share car solution. Checked out the superyacht race today from fishermans wharf..3 or 4 yachts tacking up the harbour , quite impressive..shame there were not more of them...got a couple of nice pics of OR out practising with the big yachts in the background. Yes, can be difficult to find the good guys at SFO, plus SFO traffic management shushes them away when they do show up. I have a pair of 7x50 West Marine's you can borrow for the regatta - pedestrian no gyro stabilizer mind you. You'd need to be @Pier 27 tomorrow morning by @10 or 10:30 to pick them up. If you want to order some nice Steinie's for keepers you might be able to get them drop shipped to your place of rest. . PM for more details. All the chandleries are outside of the city, i.e. in Alameda, Sausalito, Richmond. Would be a trek to get to the closest West Marine.

    Hysterical. Great mental visual painted there. And now we know you are a wolverine.

  8. News from SF Embarcadero...

    Life needs to go on in SF Bay whether or not the AC is operating. Those barges service cruise ships, and they are on pre-defined schedules. I'm sure if ACEA ponied up the dough they could have convinced the cruise line to change its provisioning/servicing schedule while in port, and its dockout schedule. And/or ACEA could have paid off the barge service to idle a couple of hours while the 72's tooled around. While the barge operator may not have relished obscuring your view, he probably opted for that ignominy vs. the punishment of losing his job for not complying with schedules.

    Pretty funny. They were sending invitations out to the window washers for that party.

    referring to the frantic as SFYC is akin to referring to San Francisco as 'Frisco'. SFYC = San Francisco Yacht Club across the bay StFYC = the frantic

    The GG Bridge is probably one of the absolute best places to watch. And today/tomorrow you can do the bridge walk without having to invest $25.00 for a cheap sweatshirt at the visitor's center. Top of Alcatraz also a great spot. Weather mark is across from the western end of Crissy Field. Agreed. I walked the bridge span yesterday, can't beat the view on fog-free days like today. You'll see the entire race course. Binocs will be handy for close-ups of mark roundings. Good luck there NCS!!! Wind is starting to back so maybe we'll get at least one race off today. Drinkies?

    Best viewing is at the end of the jetty past GGYC - last chance beach as it's known, or along the seawall between StFYC and GGYC. But nothing can beat a location that has a big screen i.e. AC village@ Marina Green. Transportation tip. Don't use taxis. 1) drivers don't know where they are going 2) will rip you off 3) will be at least 30 minutes late when you call them 4) if they even show up. Use the far more civil ride share services: https://www.uber.com/ http://www.lyft.me/ http://www.side.cr/ Seabreeze (although still light) will probably start to fill in @3PM. Best racing action in town will happen after Race2 of the AC today. The eyedeens are in town, and if you are at Marina Green you will get a great view of the skiffs.
  15. AC Youth Cup

    Very much a shame to have cut off that last race. Had they waited all of maybe 10 min's more, the wind would have been within limits. But I guess they had to get practice racing going for ORTUSA B1 and B2. Priorities you know!
