      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.

FARR 40 Championship Wx. Bikini weather.....

Recommended Posts

It is hot...like Africa Hot here in Long Beach (94' F) and is supposed to be hotter tomorrow and Thursday. On the plus side that means bikinis. On the down side that means that the race course is smack dab in the middle of the offshore/onshore transition zone. Should be an interesting FARR 40 championship....

Hot enough to boil a monkey's bum.

 

I don't miss working in Wilmington at all.

 

At least they're all in the same boat.

 

The key will be finding the transition edges.

There won't be a lot of separation between the top teams.

 

The real key will be getting off the start line cleanly, going fast in a straight line and getting around the corners quickly.

Other than the people spending or making the money in this regatta does anyone give a shit? So far only thing mentioned is the heat and ugly dudes in thongs.

The real key is figuring out how to legally pay amateurs. Probably a lot of gardeners sailing this week.

At 2PM it is 99'F in Seal Beach (The course is right offshore). Wind SSW-SW @14G 16. The water temps are already into the mid 60s in most areas and approaching 70 degrees in the San Pedro Channel between Long Beach and Catalina. It doesn't get much better than this with relative humidity at 6%.
