      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. I wish people would consult J/70 Class Rules, Builder Specifications and J/70 FAQs before defending Carlo's actions. All are available here, btw: http://www.j70ica.org/class-office-rules Was Carlo's keel changed by licensed manufacturer or with the approval of the licensed manufacturer and his boat’s Manufacturers Declaration re-issued? Most probably not. The emphasis here is on words 'licensed manufacturer'. The Technical Committee for the event has no saying in this matter, I'm afraid. From FAQs
  2. If you're perfectly honest, use calibrated load cell. It's that simple.
  3. There's some talk about Rule 69 in this German article: http://segelreporter.com/regatta/j70-worlds-erwischt-ex-weltmeister-alberini-und-sechs-crews-nach-betrug-nicht-zugelassen/ Google translation is poor, but you'll get the idea. It's the same source that posted those videos on Youtube, btw.
  4. Actually, this video by Segelreporter is more interesting
  5. That's pretty dumb move. Rules 62.1 (a) and 76 - 'an improper action or omission by RC, PC, OA or TC'. Interestingly, what that would be? These guys are right in the Rule 69 territory and then they trying to blame RC, TC or OA? Well, well..
  6. Thanks, Rudder_NZ! Seeding..
  7. Rule 20 is called 'ROOM TO TACK AT AN OBSTRUCTION' Is there an obstruction? NO. Rule 20 does not apply. Period. See also: http://game.finckh.net/situat/tit_gbr/s18_e.htm
  8. RKoch, don't feed the troll.
  9. Part 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XGVKE3yrXs
  10. You guys should watch these two documentaries made by German TV channel ARD (state owned, similar to BBC in UK): The first one is mostly in German, except the interviews with whistle-blowers, the follow-up is in English.
  11. How they can't be in the class where pumping is permitted? Same goes for Finn and RS:X
  12. Wess, to be honest, your and TM's tracks are not in any way better, btw. We have year 2016 now. If you absolutely must post some videos, post at least some fresh stuff.
  13. Just put him on ignore and do not reply to his posts. Simple as that.
  14. Can anyone explain to me why they (18er League) mention handicap here and there and how it works? I couldn't decipher anything from the info on their site. Thanks.
