      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.

SF NOODS..... Not gonna happen in 2013...

Dear Sperry Top-Sider San Francisco NOOD Regatta Sailors:

As many of you know, Sailing World’s NOOD Regatta has had a presence in the Bay Area for

many years. In September 2012 Sailing World partnered with the Corinthian Yacht Club of San

Francisco and Sausalito Yacht Club to hold the NOOD Regatta on San Francisco Bay.

Due to conflicts in scheduling, the Louis Vuitton Cup trials, and America’s Cup activity on the

Bay for much of next year’s sailing season, we have decided to put the San Francisco NOOD on

hiatus until 2014.

Sailing World greatly appreciates your support, friendship, and enthusiasm extended to the

NOOD Regatta staff and its supporters by so many of you. It has been our pleasure to have given

you some great racing on San Francisco Bay in the past and in the future. In the meantime please

join us in 2013 at our other two West Coast NOODs in San Diego March 15-17 and Seattle May

17-19.

The entire Sailing World and NOOD team join me in wishing you a great sailing season in 2013

and beyond and thank you for supporting the NOODs. See you in 2014!

Sincerely yours,

George M. Brengle

Well that is disappointing. Best venue ever. Are there no weekends in August or September that would work?

The thing that happens when the AC racing is on, is not that entire bay is taken up by it, but that crew who would normally be racing are likely to opt out for AC watching. I rather doubt that element was a part of the decision process, but it was certainly what happened for the last two events.

A bit of a hijack but......is the rumor that BBS will be in July true??

 

Seem that the whole schedule is getting moved around this year due to the AC...

Interesting. I'd thought it would be squeezed in between the LVC and AC, but having it in July (if the LVC is shortened) or late September (as long as it doesn't overlap with the stag cruise) would also make more sense.
