      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.

  6. Does anybody sail in winter? Pics or it didn't happen...

    My boat is in British Columbia where it is raining and snowing, home in Ontario has been frozen solid all winter, I am at a rental condo in Mexico, without a boat. Heading back to Victoria at the end of the month, hopefully to do some sailing and hope that I don't have to post a picture of sailing in the snow.
  7. Why Sailing and Skiing go together

    Go to Courtney British Columbia, you can ski an island in the Pacific and sail from first class Facilities across the harbour in Comox.

    Please not my man card, it is hard enough getting old, drivers license, etc. etc. but I refuse to hand over my man card, that is cruel and unusual punishment.

  11. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    Dylan, while I despair for this couple you must admit they are adventurers. They are rich in one thing that you and I lack, youth. That is the only video of them that I have watched, but I may watch a few more out of curiosity.
