      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.

Joining the SSS fleet with an old boat

Recommended Posts

I like the idea of run what you brung inshore sailboat racing. yes it would be nice to have a sport boat to run single or double handed - but not as practical as one would want given the weather, overnight stays and impending family obligations. The fleet of Moore 24s and J24 ghost with no wind and rarely do not get a DNF. I have access to an Olson 30 - quite spartan but ok.


I am leaning on taking my boat which is more suitable for all day race cruising. The ability to fire up a burner and do a blue cheese burger beats a chance at a pickle dish collected later. maybe it a sign I am getting older. just know when you pass me in Richmond, call ahead and tell me how you want your patty done or how much foam you want on your latte.
