      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.

It ain't in the News :huh::mellow::unsure::(


Well I know and I'm going - Will You be there too ?????????




Experience Sailing at the Hall of Champions!





Sailing has long been a popular pastime and sport enjoyed by San Diegans. Blessed with a natural harbor, Pacific Ocean, Mission Bay and an exceptional climate, San Diego is the perfect playground for the sport. San Diegans have raised the sport to its highest levels by winning world championships, Olympic medals, the America’s Cup, and achieving global prominence in sail making, naval architecture, youth sailing, race management, and all aspects of the sport.

The Hall of Champions’ new, state-of-the-art exhibit will celebrate the sport of sailing and all that it means to San Diego. Junior and Star Boat sailing, early stages of the sport, Olympic and International success, and the science of the sport will all be featured. Additionally, there will be an entire room dedicated to the America’s Cup, including models, half models, and important imagery and information about the oldest international sporting trophy in continuous competition.

Video interactivity, including touch and laser panels, will be a prominent feature. Sailing highlights, historical videos, personal interviews, and other sailing footage will all be on display as guests experience three separate video panels.

Finally, a fully-rigged, previously raced Star Class Boat is the centerpiece of the exhibit. It stands confidently in the middle of the room with its sails full, its keel and rudder fully exposed, at a slant so as to appear heeling through the water and without any wires or supporting braces. It is a majestic sight. The Star will also call attention to a fully-rigged sabot boat, built by legendary sabot builder and San Diegan Brian Thomas.

The exhibit has been under construction for nearly a year and will open to the public on November 15! We look forward to seeing you in our museum to experience the sport of Sailing




$1,000,000 invested (1/2 = $500,000 by Bill Koch) and $0 in Promotion for the opening


That's OK I'll do the Heavy Lifting and Promote this part of Sailing in San Diego too!


People Bitch about the Media NOT Covering Sailing


Why should they if Sailing Won't Promote it's Self ???


Too many people are into Sailing for "What They Can Get Out of Sailing"


The Sport is a Great sport and can support many "Tag-Alongs"


BUT @ some point Ya Gutta Give Back & at the very least Promote the Sport


AND That doesn't Just mean "Promote Your Event"




I'll go cover the Opening and at least it will get that much exposure
