      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.

Does anyone know if the scrutineers/measureres are bringing their metal detectors to look for lead in the keel sumps?

 

Also, are any of the visiting boats up for sale?

Have some Oracle shore crew been working on the boats?

They're going to re-sail race 3 tomorrow which is bad for a couple front runners that got a black flag, including Whitmore, Parker and Southworth.

More likely tomorrow... Forecast dire for today again, but wind due again on thursday and Friday. Hopefully some wind appears magically!

Is the wind normally this bad? If so, then why hold a World championship with the potential of no races getting run?

We sailed the Worlds there in '90 (actually Dun Laurghrie (sp?), just south) and there was only one day under 12 knots, two days blowing the dogs off.

Black and Z flags aren't good for the leaders.......

No, this lack of wind is really unfortunate and not very common at all. It's literally just a few miles from where spindrift capsized. Normally very good wind. If it's from the east there can be a massive swell as well.

 

In fact, the one thing it's not normal to have to worry about is no wind :rolleyes:

 

Had a look at the webcam on a local weather station (www.islandbawn.com) today and saw them out racing in what the station was reporting as 9 knots. Just took another look there and 9 kts reported and can see the fleet still out behind the island.
