      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.

    Sailing Faster Than You
  1. That's what she said. .
  2. Anyone looking for crew? I'm available for the regatta.
  3. I have done Newport-Bermuda, several BIRWs and other events. Message me if you want more details.
  4. I'm available for KWRW. I've sailed on all types of boats. Will provide beer/rum as needed. Message me if you want more info.
  5. The reason why you want the bitter end of the line to be in the inside of the loop is that it doesn't allow the bitter end to get caught on anything. It also points to the object that it is secured to.
  6. Bump. I'm snaggletooth and I couldn't keep it quiet anymore.
  7. I have sailed in both Can One and EBYRA in the last couple years and Can One is the better of the two. In Can One, the amount of participants on the line are higher as well as the skill level of the competition. The series are more challenging because of the wider range courses. In EBYRA it gets old quickly. You head to the Throggs Neck Bridge to get current relief and come back. There also seems to be camaraderie at Huguenot Yact Club after the race then Morris or Harlem Yacht Club. I don't know too much about the food.
