      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.

    don't let jesPOSitaco bother you. he only spouts off on others to cover up his shortcomings.

    spoken like a true jepotaco - never really ventured into a one design
  8. J 121

    so is this a real boat or just them testing the waters to see how many peeps will jump on and start the ball rolling? what is draft, price point, and other specs? no real numbers to look at to see what it exactly is. all in all, if anybody can make it work they can. my guess is 15-20 boats sold in first year
  9. Lowering the bar

    lost in all this is greenwald is back sailing in the j70 class after his defying the class rules more than once in the past.
  10. J105 distance race

    how much you want to spend and how good does it need to be?
  12. J111's KWRW?

    just like the hundreds of other OD events for many classes if there is no weigh in and still racing under the class OD rules. just like your weight of the boat and or any modifications (bottom jobs, removing weight, etc....) - they don't check it every time, but you are still racing under the class OD rules. for some reason, people think the total crew weight (40 + or -) 2-4 days before you actually race (not actually when the class rule is effect) makes a big difference and crew weigh ins have been part of the scene. as you can see a lot of the more popular classes have done away with them without losing boats on the line. smart for the owners and class to do this, should attract more to the fun (owners and crew).
  13. J111's KWRW?

    good luck and sailing to everybody who is going down the KWRW. may the weight be with you
  14. J111's KWRW?

    sounds like not much fun at all - great way to scare people off and also crew
  15. J111's KWRW?

    then the owners need to step up. here is fact for all - there will be ONLY one class that has to weigh in for KWRW, guess which one. that is a burden for the organizers. isn't like there will be a bunch of people to weigh.
