      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. Brent, just tighten up the cunningham a bit, then the outhaul. Then release the cunningham and you should be good. But the best way to see what people do is to sign-up for Canadian National Championship in Toronto! https://yachtscoring.com/emenu.cfm?eID=3028 http://melges24nationals.ca/
  2. Please consider this as a personal invitation to the Canadian Nationals: http://melges24nationals.ca/ Not too far from Boston + should be the biggest M24 regatta of the year on the East part of North America.

  5. Not necessarily you need one. How will you be launching the boat?
  6. How did you break the delrins anyway?!!
  7. Mine is furled counter clockwise because of the jib wire winding.
  8. How will it work? Will you contact yourself the guys with the <=599 hulls who registered and paid?
  9. What about this contest? My boat is a great candidate for that!!
