      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. Sailing World mag

    I used to buy several magazines regularly: golf, ski, fitness, sailing, windsurfing, guitars... Pretty much every hobby or interest I had, but now I don't recall buying one in years. Google, internet forums, Ipads, smartphones, etc., are my sources of information now. Times change.

    You know that when a woman tells you about a "problem" she doesn't want you to solve it, Right?

    Segovia: (Yes, Walt Disney was here) Pedraza: ç The quality of the food (cordero and cabrito) in this area is beyond belief.
  4. Holiday itinerary suggestions, Spain.

    A friend sent me this picture yesterday, Segovia (70km away from Ávila). It won't look like this in May but it's definitely worth a visit along with Sepúlveda and Pedraza, which is a small village that hasn't changed in two centuries.

    OK, I wouldn´t miss Sierra de Gredos (which you'll be driving across), Ávila, Salamanca, Puebla de Sanabria and Cañones del Sil on that route (and maybe Las Médulas). Ronda and Sevilla are worth the trip. And if I was only visiting one place in Galicia, it certainly wouldn't be Combarro.

  12. Holiday itinerary suggestions, Spain.

    Don't know where to start... I'm a bit biased because I live here, but Galicia is a must. I'll try to give you general advice because there are too many things and places to see. First of all, May is HOT in the South, so do that first, also, as you may already know, there's always some local festivities somewhere, and they are usually worth going. On this link I've found you'll see a list of most of them: https://en.fiestas.net/ You can ask me once you've filtered which may be interested and I'll tell you what's worth and what not. Travelling by bus is cheap but also consider trains. What are you interested in? History, art, nature, wineries, food (steaks, fish, seafood...)? PS: My six yo son says you MUST go to the Santiago Bernabeu...;-)
  13. How Does My New Boat Not Have a Boom?

    Fuck it, they don't need booms because they have full battens all the way down to keep sail shape, plus a huge traveller plus always sailing narrow AWA's
