      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.

It is official as of last night.  NOSA ratified a contract acquiring the Border Run race from XS Sailing.  The two Border Run courses will be integrated into the Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race event, which will offer 3 courses in 2018; Newport to Ensenada (N2E), Newport to San Diego (N2SD - Border Run), & Newport to Dana Point (N2DP - Border Sprint).  Also new is that the N2DP course will offer small one design classes as well as Portsmouth for beach cats and non-one design small boats.  All starts are April 27.  All courses share in all activities, like the Thursday night pre-race party at the Balboa Yacht Club.  

It'll probably take a few days for PR and website updates to catch up.  NORs will be up in a few weeks.  Registration starts 1/1/18.

That's pretty awesome and I'm in for the Dana Point sprint.  Thanks for all the work this must have taken.

A number of people had registered for the Border Run, a few had paid fees.  We are working with Border Run to unwind these.  Cancellation, refund, and re-register is the most likely solution.  We intend to contact all so involved in the coming months.

Good job Bill on the trackers and combining the races, now we need some pro video footage or some way that boats can send video to Nosa for a pro to make a great video and promote it for next year

I'd like to do the border run but if you classify it as Coastal per the USS SER, my 1980's Zap 26 will not be able to fulfill the requirements.
Make sure you do not exclude too many boats.

I'm afraid we don't have much choice here, the USSER course definitions are pretty clear on their definitions.  We have N2SD as Coastal, but N2DP as Nearshore.  What is it about your Zap 26 that can't do Coastal?

The NOR posted has N2DP as Coastal. An error I hope?

Yes indeed.  Thanks for mentioning it.  People have been notified.  An amendment will be forthcoming.

I guess people do read those things.
