Abbreviated rules 07/28/2017Underdawg 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.

windseekeryachts posted a topic in Sailing AnarchyORC rule was implemented as the principal handicap rule for the Charleston Race Week 2017, it was the first time the system was used in a major North American regatta. Thirty boats raced in four separate ORC Classes at this event One of the most competitive fleets was ORC C. The fleet consisted of f 9 boats, SR33, Melges 32, Melges 30, Heno 30, 2X Farest28Rs, and 3GP26s. USA2604 Michael Beasley and Team Rattle and Rum won the event with a comfortable margin. the results are here Overall, the ORC rating system seemed to work well... More often only a few seconds were the deciding factor between the corrected times... The overall award for the best performance in an ORC Class went also to Mike Beasley and his Annapolis-based crew of Joe Gibson, Ted and Joanna Harland, Scott Gibbs and Ty Van Dalen... Beasley and his crew were awarded the prestigious and historic Palmetto Cup for winning the tightest class in the handicap divisions. We are very happy to see the boat performing well under ORC rating. Hope it will get more popularity in the USA, as this will lead to exciting racing with some fast boats... Congratulations to Eagles Eye (FE28) and Short Bus (Henderson 30) as well as all other teams competing... photocredit: CharlestonRaceWeek; TimWilkes Photography Attached Thumbnails
