      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.

We had some technical issues with the live feed, but the cocktail hour was awesome. Check back in a bit and we'll post it here.

Sorry about that, the entire 50 minute talk show is compressing now so we can stream it, it was really a fun conversation about the ISAF Classification Code and how the amateur/pro distinction operates, and maybe how it should...

 

Guest list was the best damned amateurs I could find:

 

Jonny Goldsberry (49er Olympic hopeful, BrickHouse alum, Roxanne)

Sarah Calahan (Star)

Curtis Florence (M24, F40, F30 World Champ, Leenabarca)

Bernard Fitzpatrick (TP52 Patches, Barbarians)

Jeremy Wilmot (M32 World Champ, here on Celeritas)

Bora Gulari (Moth World Champ, M24 Simplicity, Star)

Most enjoyable coverage Alan. Thanks. And to the delightful Mer, these are some of the best photos I've seen you post. Wow. Double thanks. Looking forward to the rest of the regatta. Makes the stupidity of living in the NE for the winter a bit more bearable.

The Cocktail Hour we did experienced some technical difficulties. The Good Rev is in a snowdrift back home, fixing my shitty camera skillls. It will be WELL worth the wait, I can promise you that.

 

New day starting. Breeze on. Sun on. Life is good. At least one pair of Kaenons and one Ultimate Sailing Calendar are coming your way today...but you have to earn it!

 

Contest details are here in the new thread.

Thank you so much. I can't stop wondering why you aren't here, it doesn't feel the same without you...
