      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.

    Sorry guys this sailing 101 if you get outside assistance your race is over. Should have reported it to RC upon finishing and taken the Corinthian gentlemanly RAF. No excuses. If it was a sand bar they could have waited for high tide and put bodies on the boom as once happened to me racing a CI distance race with Art Karpf where we did a horizon job and ran aground at sands point with sea tow perplexed why we didn't want assistance and had 10 people on the boom of a Lacomte 48 iirc. We eventually got off and finished the race. What's next "I only ran my engine for 10 minutes to get thru the gut" and would like a 10 minute penalty. Grow up

    What little birdie were you speaking with?It's my job to know this stuff.As predicted in post 523. I need to hang around SOHO this occasion for my guests. It's the new hip place. Normally I never dine below 34th or above 80th, And I never ride buses or subways with the common filth. Missing out on some fabulous chow outside of midtown!! But yeah, the subway sucks.Listen Mr. Bitpitch, I was on the streets when Brooklyn Heights was crack dens.Don't tell me what's hip and what isn't. SOHO, Dumbo, these places were invented for Wall Street worker bees to form a class one step above the chinks and wops down there. It may as well be Kansas for all I care. Dinner and Dancing at the Rainbow Room after the MET. Then a girl can freshen up and assess a gents chances with a drink at Beekman Tower. That's hip. I don't need advice from a City Island clam digger. Puhlleaaaase! Right on Blondie. If your man won't pay for a cab, you keep the curtains to the main stage closed! Now does anyone know a steakhouse down there or should I pack a lunch? Edith I didn't realize you were such an old fashioned girl....rainbow room? met? beekman towers? they were hip when our grandmas were youngsters. now they are just places where fossilized geezers go to try to recall their youth.....or anything else. Maybe you should try a shell steak at Sammy's and relive your past.

    Edith I never knew you were such an effete snob. In case you haven't heard Soho has been the "new" hip place for the last 30+ years.

    All this talk of Espo and weight limits is a bit baffling because he is commodore of EBYRA where the ratings committee intentionally disregards any weight allowances when they assign phrf numbers to their participants. Obviously this has been discussed at EBYRA and he as commodore was fully aware of the rules related to weight limits in phrf. You make your decision at the beginning of the season in regards to the configuration of the boat and weight you will sail with and stick with it for the season. You can't change your rating when it's blowing stink and get a credit for sailing with a #3 instead of your stated head sail. Espo do the manly thing and RAF and then petition for the elimination of weight limits from phrf ratings from YRALIS as you did with EBYRA.

    Yes it was. If you search the IRC database there are 3 Otra Vez listings, my old 36.7 (now in the UK), my old J122 (now in Malta), and the current version. paging btbotfa.....see, from 36.7 to ker 43.....there's hope ;-) Funny, the same thing popped into my head. You know the same thought occurred to me

    We managed to pick up boat length's while swapping out torn kites, that's efficiency. Especially since we managed to get the right kite up after the tear.. Crew race with a downwind start....interesting course
