      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.

where are they this year? I went 3 or 4 years running in the late 90's. Great regatta even if they are the Exxon Valdeez of One Designs!

Funny you should ask! The weather gods were not pleased with the Flying Scots this week. The regatta was March 20-23 at Southern Yacht Club in New Orleans. With a front that just sat on us, or near us, Tues and Wed were blown out and Thursday was thunder and lightning.

 

 

But finally we broke the curse and Friday was clear with moderate winds. We got four races in and the race committee was excellent. First place was decided by 1/2 a boat length!

Somewhere there's a great photo of lightning striking right by the club. As soon as I find it again I'll post it!
