      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. how to ruin racing, part 2

    I'm still blown away that they have filled up the PHRF fleet! Scot, you have three options: 1. Appeal to World Sailing - I don't see that they can exclude you for "future" assumed conduct on a race course. 76 EXCLUSION OF BOATS OR COMPETITOR 76.1 The organizing authority or the race committee may reject or cancel the entry of a boat or exclude a competitor, subject to rule 76.3 ,provided it does so before the start of the first race and states the reason for doing so. On request the boat shall promptly be given the reason in writing. The boat may request redress if she considers that the rejection or exclusion is improper. 76.2 The organizing authority or the race committee shall not reject or cancel the entry of a boat or exclude a competitor because of advertising, provided the boat or competitor complies with World Sailing Regulation 20, Advertising Code. 76.3At world and continental championships no entry within stated quotas shall be rejected or cancelled without first obtaining the approval of the relevant World Sailing Class Association (or the Offshore Racing Council) or World Sailing 2. Rename the boat (I'm assuming they are trying to exclude you based on advertising - ANARCHY) and have someone else register your boat and be the skip. You then might participate as "rail meat". 3. Maybe don't be a dick. I'm still blown away that they have filled up the PHRF fleet! Scot, you have three options: 1.

    Y Isn't that an hour and half ahead of you? Yeah, I was sleeping...
  3. Scot Tempesta, Dead at the Age of Five

    It was at 10:28 my time. 2:17 my tiimme Are you using Newfoundland time, or dead watch time? Nope, Eastern Standard Time... my Newfie friends are actually in their own time zone, an hour and half behind me... makes toasting New Years in Canada more interesting... so 10:28 EST - 11:58 NST. Dead Watch time = GMT or the time when Scot will actually pass and we can finally take over SA?

    WTF? Everyone knows April Fools / Poisson d'avril ends at Noon, and that post was made at 12:28 so it doesn't count.
  5. How to deal with a dangerously incompetent sailor?

    This video has some ideas?
  6. what is it?

    My friends clearly stole my SR>Max and are fixing it up for me!
  7. How to deal with a dangerously incompetent sailor?

    Has anyone ever thought of trying to work with him to actually make this fellow a better racing instead of watching this nightmare unfold regularly?
  8. drop in

    What my SR>Max should look like once I fix it and put a proper keel lifting mechanism on it, a sprit and deckstepped carbon mast! I'd have said the new ESSE 650, but the background looks so unSwiss to me. So WHAT IS IT? More photos, might save me the hassle of fixing the SR.

    What were the tag lines again? For M32 Racing - It was getting hard to compete with billionaires, then For M20/24 racing, it was getting hard to compete with millionaires? Yes, this will be another billionaire bloodbath for those who dare try?
  11. Has to be more fun the last LO 300.. I broke 2 flyswatters... Unlike Lake Ontario, we have wind, plenty of it. And if you do want to go for a swim the water is likely warmer in the Bras d'Or than in Lake Ontario. It is certainly cleaner... What kind of boat is Evenflow? What does it rate? Evenflow is a Henderson SR>Max, rates FS 165 and NFS 183 on Lake Ontario. If you recall there was the C&C version SR 21 called Snoopy in Chester(?) a while back. I have wanted to race in Nova Scotia for years now, okay since going to Dal, just needed a portable boat! Anyone got a boat with an interior to actually sleep on?
  12. Looks like more fun than the Lake Ontario 300... maybe next year - tow Evenflow down?
  13. I really need to go sailing but the lake is beginning to freeze over!

  14. Probably where they "Sound of Music" live was broadcast from? Or is it just big enough for the owner to get that Liberian registration and allow for a suspension of most US regulations.
  15. Season is over again... spring is when?
