      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. 1st JPK 11.80 launches

    You always hear how JPKs kick ass in IRC. Are any JPKs racing in PHRF locations and getting good results?
  2. Voyage of the Scarlet Queen

    Just came across this cool old-time radio show. How can ya not like a show that starts off each week, with the mate calling out, "Stand By To Make Sail"! Voyage of the Scarlet Queen is so old that it's in the public domain. Which means that all 35 episodes are available free for streaming or download at Internet Archives. The voyage starts in San Francisco. The ketch then sets off for adventures across the Pacific and along the coast of Asia. Enjoy!
  3. Blackbeard Question

    Back in 1718, Blackbeard made his final solo transit of the Caribbean. So, here’s the question: How would he keep the Queen Ann’s Revenge on course while goin’ aloft to trim the topgallants? Engage the Autopirate, of course.
  4. Scooped By CNN

    What's the world coming to when SA gets scooped by CNN?
  5. Anybody Know The History Of This Farr 39ML?

    So you'd expect the gear to be up to date. Now, if the core and glass are still bonded, this looks to be a great deal
  6. Barn Find Cal 40

    From the depth of the Georgian outback, comes the restoration project from hell, to resurrect a racing legend. I give you... the Barn-Find Cal 40
  7. I've used several fasteners from Marine Parts Depot. The parts do not rival the high-end product for quality, but generally operated as advertised. Shipments were fast. Prices, super low.
  8. Wahine 26

    For reference: A quick Yatchworld search (New Sailboats, $150-$200K) yields a 2018 Beneteau America 38.1 and a 2018 Jeanneau 389. While these pussy wagons may not float my boat, it's hard to imagine, walking through, or sailing either of them, then saying, nah, I'll take the 26 footer.
  9. Ed. gone blind?

    the caption was just a joke. wasn't it?
  10. DH Pac Cup boat

    Interesting that no one has brought up the other Olson, the 911.
  11. How to watch live races?

    Anyone upping today's presser?
  12. Live Racing Thread

    So, you think he came up with that all by himself? I'm sure a team PR guy had nothing to do with the "apology"
  13. Live Racing Thread

    Any word yet on the Kiwi boat? Were they ready this morning. Gotta be happy for the extra day to make repairs.
  14. Race Replays

    Rudder, thanks man. Works perfect!
  15. Ensenada Race, gonna blow

    Hey, any boats carrying trackers? Only one I know is Lulu, a Schock 34 and past class winner in a light air year. Her Spot Tracker here: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0ONIV3IKtxZcvTU4IPVyhDvl37LoD5FRA Anyone else?
