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.

Hello all, I wanted to tell you about a cool adventure that my friends and I have started. The 2018 Bermuda race has always been a goal of mine to do, turns out my friends shared the same interest. This past summer we began planning out the race, we figure that this will be the youngest crew to complete the race with an average age of 19. Our skipper may also be the youngest skipper at 18. All of us have been racing since before we can remember and between us have thousands of miles. We are taking the skippers' fathers boat, a 47-foot steel hulled vessel, not great for competitive racing unless it is blowing 30 but winning isn't everything. Since we are such a young crew we are trying to raise money from sailors who see this as a cool venture to get young sailors doing long distance races. Now here I am going to put on my solicitor's hat and ask that if you wish to help us out on the voyage to Bermuda this coming summer we have a go fund me page.
