      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. The NBCSN app doesn't allow for replay or even long pauses of real time play. During the pitch-pole race, I got behind and the app turned itself off.
  2. What do you plan to do with the boat when you are not sailing it?
  3. The Craigs List link seems to be broken.
  4. The entry level boat for a larger person in Cleveland, would be a Highlander. They race with a crew of 2 to 4 people, it's total crew weight that matters.
  5. When you set your VHS tape recorder, add some extra time. As it's following some live soccer/football games. I don't think that it's scheduled for a repeat airing.
  6. America's Cup on US cable TV Sunday May 8. NBCSN 2PM EDST
  7. America's Cup on US cable TV Sunday May 8. NBCSN 2PM EDST
  8. In the past, they were good at doing dumb stuff like that at Indy Car (CART, IRL, etc) starts.
  9. America's Cup World Series on US TV, Sunday October 18 NBC SN 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM EDST Bermuda

  11. This may have been the first CRW that had more boats racing in the One Design weekend than in the off-shore races.
  12. That's true, but if you can get to the West Blvd. parking lot, then you can get to the W49th ramp. Once you get to the ramp it will be something like when they run a triathlon. The problem will be for east-siders, down-towners and south-siders to get anywhere near Edgewater at rush-hour grid-lock.
  13. Edgewater YC, 'Captain America' filming, CRW/OD and West Shoreway closing. With the closing of the West Shoreway for the movie filming and of course the possible construction work on the alternate routes I-71 & I-90, rush hour traffic will be total grid-lock. So Wednesday night races from the east-side will have to start heading towards the club mid-afternoon. The have extended the closing dates to interfere with CRW/OD. Does anyone have real details on how the closing is going to happen? As a west-sider I'm glad that I don't work downtown.
  14. After watching the Monday Noon news weather forecasts, I would say that my above chart is optimistic.
  15. Wind at Midnight Monday evening.
