      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.  
Tranquilo

Well, unlike golf you can't blow the racecourse away. Shoreside venue is another detail. Many people going down there expecting a comfortable vacation will find third world conditions instead - even in the "nicer" places.

Actually, even now only seven weeks after the hurricane, things are far better than ‘third world’. In the Simpson Bay area where most competitors will stay, drink, and dine, most places are open, including several hotels. Island wide, accommodation inventory is already about 40% - higher in Simpson Bay. By the end of the year, our marine infrastructure should be good to go for the season - even now all the chandlers, sailmakers, riggers are open. Marinas are being cleared pretty quickly now, with some already open, and all have announced openings before 1 January.

The St Maarten Heineken Regatta will definitely go ahead, and it will be one not to miss.

oh, and the golf course is open.

Did I overthink this?  We were planning on going again this year, but everything I read (including their tourism bureau).  So we abandoned our plans figuring jacked up lodging rates or no lodging available.  Didn't want to sleep on the boat.  I'm sure those that went had a blast.  But what was lodging like as far as price and availability?  Kudos to those who braved it.  Thanks
