      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.

South Facing Exposure-So Cal Midwinters

30 posts in this topic

A Gale warning is up for tomorrow (Friday, February 17th) for all SoCal Coastal waters. An unusually vigorous storm will create problems especially for some of the south or SE facing slips/anchorages here in SoCal tomorrow. If you have roller furling systems or canvas up, you might want to save yourself a bunch of money and go deal with those today ahead of what is expected to be some actual "WEATHER" here in the southland.

 

Cattle, Small houses, Refrigerators and Timber along with other floating debris may also create some navigational hazards in Long Beach harbor on Saturday.

 

You have been warned....

Midwinters is actually Saturday and Sunday, in my case, down at Mission Bay Yacht Club. Both Weather.com and Sailflow show rain in the morning, then clear Saturday afternoon and Sunday, and with light air.

 

Lets hope that Friday blows through, so that its not nukin' racing this weekend. 'Cause frankly, I'm getting way too old for that shit.

Light air on Sun with mixed up seas and swell running sounds like so much fun with 3 boats per class on the line for Newport.

The front is finally making some eastward pavement. Rain started about 90 minutes ago in Long Beach. Moderate at best. The "Good Stuff" should start coming ashore in the next 90 minutes depending on where you are on the coast from PV through San Clemente.

Gusting to 25kts here on Harbor Island in Dago, nicely sheltered to the South thank goodness. Bay looks ugly - wouldn't want a mooring ball off Shelter Island right about now.

Today will prove to be a relatively docile day on SoCal coastal waters except near squall lines which will be few and far between after sunrise.

 

Not really sure why racing has been canceled at many clubs. Wind speeds are mostly in the single digit range.

It was brutal out there! The umbrella on my patio was almost knocked over. Maybe I should have closed it.

 

Regardless, I'll be telling the tale of the Great Storm of '17 to my grandkids. If they stay in town, they'll be impressed.

Sea state was our course issue. Pretty good size west swell made for some fun surfing under the code 0 when the R/C pulled the plug. But, setting marks and holding station would not have been fun.

Some times you gotta cut the volunteer R/C a little slack.

Exactly. Though sometimes a really alternative could be used. The sport needs to stop chasing perfection in perfectly square lines and w/l courses. Nothing wrong with starting and finishing in some piece of flat water in the harbor.

I've been managing the Power Point program for the past few years to keep in the local scene and get a few kids coming out of the Junior's program into bigger boats.
