      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.

    Way to Go! Congrats to skipper and crew. And the 4th place team (1 point out of 2nd) was coached by a Mainer, my baby boy :>)

    Below is this past season's schedule for reference. I had thought long ago that Monhegan was always the first weekend in August but for whatever reason it was moved to the second weekend. None of the PYC hosted dates are "carved in stone" and the RC Committee has and will be discussing dates and how to improve the racing and/or attendence. If people value Monhegan over Camden Castine and the Down East Race Week over Camden Castine then Monhegan can be moved. Other points of discussion after this years longgggggggg race is shortening and/or changing the course. What about deleting the southern bouy and just race out of the Hussey turn left to Monhegan and return?

    For us it is/was crew. Hard time coming up with a solid core of 6-7 willing to sail every (or any) event. I'm going to buy a 5 knot shitbox that can be doublehanded in the cruising class....

    I thought the RC sucked pretty bad SHould have let those damn Etchells with no GPS, no engine, no radar reflectors and probably no charts race another race in 20' visability and no wind...
