      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. Venture (not MacGregor) Memories...

    When I was 15 me and two buddies sailed/motored a V222 with the poptop from Browns Creek Marina on Guntersville Lake all the way to Paducah KY. Took us a week because we stopped each night, either in a marina or tied to the bank. This was in 1975.
  2. Best PHRF Regattas in the US

    Whidbey Island Race Week, a true full Race Week with Parties Sunday through Friday. Open to 19-70 ft boats.
  3. Need clarification of Rule 18

    See this all the time racing asym boats. Fortunately the boats we race against understand the stb has rights and port has to do whatever is necessary to keep clear

    Happened about an hour post start. Great job by the photo boat, Martha, and Por Favor for standing by.
