      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. newbie bowman tips

    There actually is quite a few good tips on here. I think one of the most important things to remember is that to become a solid big boat racer you have to know the boat front to back. Bow (or mast then bow) is a great place to learn the mechanics of the boat which are essential to doing any other position on the boat. This include being a good sail trimmer, driver and especially tactician. Any good sailor should master (or become proficient) in every position. I'd agree that good bow guys/girls are always willing to teach. Alot of this is goodwill but some is ego as well. Often they have become good at their job because they have a good system so they want to pass on, which is key. Have fun but don't take tips from people in the back of the boat who don't know the job.
