      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.

Same reason a J111 is 42 in PHRFNE and 36 or 33 anywhere else - PHRF sucks ;)

Yes, My point is that the 122 takes a extra 9 sec a mile hit in NE vs if they were racing in NB. 

Why would one boat be 9 sec a mile faster in one body of water vs another that is 50 + or - miles away?

Sorry, My fault I should have explained it clearer.

Funny how the the 2 tops boat in the Buzzard Bay Regatta this year were a 111 and 120?  The two j-boats with the biggest PHRF-NE gift.

Its so much easier to blame the committee, or person on the committee, than it is to just sail the boat you have to its full potential....
