Abbreviated rules 07/28/2017Underdawg 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.
grew up sailing at the age of 6 with my dad on an old Catalina 42. Moved to an Island Packet a few years later. About six years ago we got a J109, which we raced actively in the local PHRF series's in Tampa Bay. We did a lot of shorthanded sailing/racing with that boat so im well versed in all the positions. I started racing dinghies actively about seven years ago, starting off in radials before crewing 420's. I crewed 420's for about 4 years too long before i got my 29er about 3years ago.I still crew usually. In the seven or so years that i've been racing i've also sailed as many different types of boats as i could, megles 24's, F18's, 49er's, Tripp 33/37, and many others. Now that im going to school in the north east im back to OPB's, so if you're ever in need of a bowman or trimmer, or just someone light to get up to max weight, give me a shout.
