      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.

    Looks like they're flying an A0 and a flying jib off the mini prod https://www.facebook.com/UK-Sailmakers-49996867736/?notif_id=1523211613509177&notif_t=page_post_liker_invite

    to clarify, PHRF is still discussing, and we don't have an IRC yet b/c the boat is being built. Have not heard about ratings for the other boats aside from the 30 PHRF mentioned earlier

    Don't have our rating yet. The powers that be are still discussing how to handle the water ballast vs fully crewed issue.
  4. when the boat withstand more then the crew...

    looks like a 105, glad crew appear to be ok

    They've had it for a few years, J/112E got it last year and the Grand Soleil 43 the year before. Essentially best racer/cruiser

    raced on a 120 for 20 years, never had any leakage from the sprit. Always heard that was more of an issue with the 105s

    There are crew members that know how to use abecedarian in a sentence?

  11. Chicago-Mac/Meridian X MOB Recovery

    The reason I'm asking these questions is exactly to your point, it was an accident that could happen to anyone. Hoping that when they do get home and have rested, they can share some insight/details so we can learn what worked in these particular situations
  12. Saw the front page story today, Lucky Front, and am glad to hear that the sailor who went overboard from Meridian X was recovered, and that the crew from High Priority 2 are safe. Wondering if anyone has more details on both recovery efforts. How did the Meridian X crew go over? What in place procedures worked? What didn't? What about the situation was unpredictable? What safety gear crew were wearing?...etc. I've attended a few Safety-at-Sea seminars and am fortunate enough not to have been in a real MOB situation, or a capsize/turtle situation. Hoping to learn from these successful recoveries, not to second guess actions taken.
