      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. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    This is making me sick!!
  2. Google & Babel Yacht Brokers

    I'm not sure but I think I have one of those self emptying decks also.
  3. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    So maybe asked and answered but, From the Heli footage after the start I noticed that MAPFRE was using a second outrigger forward by the shrouds. That was the first time I've seen that. Seem like it would certainly help when 4 sail reaching like that surprised the other boats aren't using them.
  4. Ok, just how ... (did I do the dots right)

    I thought it was 4 dots ....
  5. Staysails

    Take it to the blooper thread
  6. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Not the best shot but here is Chris Dragon on the boat heading to Australia for the race.
  7. I'm pretty sure we can find our fair share of Ignorance around here. Not sure if that will help us ignore this post.
  8. Random PicThread

    Was that Tall Ships (Operation Sail?) in 1976?? We were there too
  9. blooper time!

    Love to see B3 in action. The best part about bloopers is they usually didn't change with the new paint job. I mean how often are you buying a new one.
  10. Hey buy an ad!

  11. Hey buy an ad!

    Not for nothing but this one is in pretty good shape with some room for a new sail or 2. PM me if your interested Matt
  12. Hey buy an ad!

    I have an S2 9.1 for sale. Easy to get up to speed sails to her rating, looking for a good home
  13. 3Di Nordac

    That's a pretty good looking sail. Our sail maker recommended nordac for a PHRF genoa on our 105. It was a very reasonable price, about 2/3's of what the new class jib cost.

    I know it's off topic but do you have no lifelines on your boat?? Does make for a nice set on the lower half of that jib.

    Second this. We just did a 4 day bike tour around the finger lakes. Beautiful area and the hike through the Glen was really neat. Great place to cycle if you into that kind of thing.
