      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.

  5. Advice on laying out a course

  6. Camet Sailing Shorts - any good?

    the sizing is a bit wonky but they do last well. not in love with the cargo pockets but otherwise my kit of choice so far
  7. strict class

    The J44 class owns the sails and rotates them from event to event
  8. J70, cheating and pros

    I see what you did right there.
  9. Bowman and start line distance calling issues

    IMO, a lot of it is trigger time. I still ask for a line sight, but for the most part its time in the boat (knowing how it accelerates or burns speed), experience with the driver, experience making those judgments calls, and just some dumb luck
  10. Racing without spinnaker pole

    only rule I can think of relating to spinnaker is 50.2 which requires the pole, if used, to be attached to the mast
  11. Spinnaker Bag?

    Quantum sells one on their website
  12. J/22 vs Sonar 23

    Sonar has a much bigger cockpit, so that may be a factor for you. Racing wise, you can't go wrong with a J22 , but in this case, I'd opt for the one-design aspect of your Sonar connections.
  13. Proper course - noob question

    it aint a proper rules thread with @Brass. Thanks!
  14. Proper course - noob question

    16.2 is deleted in the Match Racing Rules (Appendix C - Rule C2.7)
