      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. Some of my old sailing photos 2

    I don't remember that shot. I did the SORC on Gannet, a very interesting boat to say the least.

    I think Buddies medal was in the Dragon Class if I remember correctly.
  3. Older well known IOR Boats

    I did the 79 SORC on Sun Bird 5 as the only American aboard. Tom Curnow and his girlfriend Sam who was pregnant at the time were very good friends with my wife and I. Made it a very tough winter.

    +1 to what Flatbag said. None of us had much money back then but we had a lot of fun, what I can remember anyway.
  5. Older well known IOR Boats

    Plum Crazy looks a lot bigger than a 1/4 tonner.
  6. Older well known IOR Boats

    That can't be Tide, Tide had wire sheets!
  7. Older well known IOR Boats

    Al Van Meter was the second owner of Tide and I don't think the family still owns the boat. The last time I saw her was in Antigua many many years ago with a couple of French guys aboard. Who owns it now?

    Why would you ever change Intrepids name?

    FANG would have loved this thread, RIP.

    C28, Windward Passage was designed when racing was under the CCA rule not the IOR. Pay attention!
