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.

Back in the old days, say the ‘80’s, I heard or read that you shouldn’t sail upwind in a frac rig boat under jib only, especially in windy and/or lumpy conditions. I assumed this was for structural reasons having to do with the pull of the jib against an unsupported section of mast (assuming straight spreaders and no runners) and no mainsail damping out forward flexing of the mast when slamming off a wave, and not for handling issues associated with too much lee helm. Since then the swept spreader rig has come into wide spread use, and I believe this caveat is no longer valid, at least not with a swept spreader rig or one with runners. As a matter of fact, we regularly sail downwind with just the jib or asym. However we never go upwind in breeze. BTW we have a double swept spreader alum. rig. What does the SA crowd think about this question?
