      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. Barn Find Cal 40

    https://www.maritime.edu/donations/boats/cal-40 This one looks like a much better deal. Sealed bid auction at Mass Maritime this weekend.
  2. caption contest

    Lost a bit on that last wave.
  3. Rolex Fastnet Race 2017

    Where are all of the IMOCA 60's going?
  4. USS Constitution Dry Docking and Restoration

    Nice run on sentence. Why aren't you doing BBR?
  5. Buzzard Bay Regatta crew limits

    I also don't see a phrf certificate for RIOT! I maybe just cranky because I drove to my yacht club and didn't race tonight because it was raining.
  6. Buzzard Bay Regatta crew limits

    I like that they announce crew limits early, but they still don't have the sailing instructions up yet. Less than a day and a half and we don't know if there is that stupid distance race that counts on Friday.
  7. boat crash

    You scratched my winch!
  8. Beringer Bowl from Marblehaed to Provincetown. https://www.bostonyc.org/files/BYC Beringer Bowl 2016v1.pdf
  9. Buzzard Bay Regatta crew limits

  10. Buzzard Bay Regatta crew limits

    Fine with me, we are all fat. 230 lb average. now we can get more than 7!
  11. Merlin at 75 mph

    Yachtscoring has the crewlist.
  12. I don't like that you can choose during a series. In Boston Harbor CPYC you only get 12 seconds. Does Constitution give more? From Hounddog and Freightrain.
  13. Jib-and-Main techniques

    Read the rules newbie. For winging out a jib it does not need be.
  14. Swede 55

    Looks awesome. I was at a birthday party at the Shelburne Farm inn last Friday.
