      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. Artemis?

    Fairly odd that as of yesterday afternoon, Artemis has yet to put so much as a RIB back in the water in SF. Not sure what's going on there, looks more like someone abandoned ship than went away for a holiday. Not chiming in to have a discussion, just mentioning my observation, as I'm next door 5 times a week or so at the gym.

    You guys racing this weekend, Janer? And what's the weather looking like?
  3. Bacon Anarchy

    Last month I turned a 12 lb pork belly into cured and smoked bacon. It was amazing. Today I started 2 more on the road. They'll be ready in about a week.

    Brings back the rumor question... a mark of the course is a mark of the course... if you don't round it, you cant finish. We had an incident this weekend elsewhere when a competitor not only hit a mark, it was pointed out to them by another competitor while it was happening and they refused to do a turn, then claimed they knew nothing of the incident in the room. Poor sportsmanship generally indicates a lack of self confidence or integrity I believe.

    Any truth to the rumor that a certain SB sailor called the race organizers in the middle of the night over a mark rounding?

    It was a fun weekend, Janer, RC did a great job of dealing with the breeze (or lack of)... I'm betting all the face plants started with those mojitos
  7. Would you post some pics?

    We're definitely taking a team down if Karla can get her act together this spring, if you guys are going to practice the day before like last year, let us know, we'd be up for some tuning. Have a fun time this weekend, sorry not to be seeing you --

    Janer, No trip to LB this weekend? What's up with that, thought we'd see you on the water.
  10. Older well known IOR Boats

    Farr 40 OD is 12 with the frac kite, -6 with the masthead, actually.

    This better not be a drifter like last year, ugh. Max, you're a tease
  13. newbie bowman tips

    On an end for end pole, don't ever be caught looking straight down it during a gybe. If you feel the words "get off my bow" start to come out of your mouth, make sure you have your next ride lined up. Anticipation and discussion of what's coming next, especially with the parts of the boat you directly intersect with -- pit and trimmers -- can't hurt.
