      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. Probably better to leave the F18 where it is. Might be time for a new Formula? Fix the weight of the F18 to something more manageable. Not so light as to compromise durability. Seems today glass over carbon isn't a huge cost savings. Am I wrong? 4-point foiling over 3? Foils cannot extend outside of the beam. L rudders instead of T?
  2. Now 6 boats in Atlanta I believe.
  3. It does happen. Yeah, let's go with the exceptions, Einstein. True, it's very much the exception. The norm is you're defenseless and can only hope to get lucky and live. I'm glad that these athletes have been lucky and are ok.
  4. It does happen. No matter what side of the gun issue you're on, the horrifying truth is access to weapons is only going to increase in the years to come regardless of laws and borders.
  5. I see this comment sometimes on ads for boats. Can anyone explain to me like I'm five what this really means?
  6. I've always been surprised the M24 didn't take off in Annapolis as a good light air performer.
  7. Thoughts as to why they weren't successful?
  8. While I'm not convinced you can call a J/70 a sportboat, there's a crapton of them in Annapolis.
  9. Anyone know what the RaceQs business model is? What's the plan for this app?
  10. Did the VXs not go out today at CRW?
  11. Have any clubs tried using member costs to encourage participation? For example, increasing member dues but offsetting with "credits" earned through regatts or events? I'd like to see more people sailing their boats and less using it as a cheap storage facility.
  12. Little quiet around here. How's this class doing?
  13. Anyone got a full replay of the start / broadcast?
  14. I'm going to be working in Dallas for a few weeks and will be available for Weds nights. Would love a ride on a VX (been considering getting one but need to try it out). Also have a lot of M24 experience. 195lbs.
