      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.

Crew wanted for OYC Sunday Brunch

Recommended Posts

I'm signed up for the Oakland Yacht Club Sunday Brunch series.  Since the boat is new to me, I'd prefer to have a crewmember.  The SeaRail is just barely long enough to be allowed to race and the race committee would prefer that I have a crew on board (apparently, some smallish multihull years back joined the races and ran into a bunch of folks causing damage but never made good).  The Oakland estuary is narrow and boats tend to pile together at the marks.  Multihulls mixed with monoslugs at the same marks can be chancy since if a gust hits a mono-he leans over; the same gust hits a multihull and he accelerates; and if he is in a line following a mono, he can easily have no place to bail without hitting someone (I know this, came close a few times).

In any event, a hand would be appreciated.  Races are every other Sunday starting on January 7.  I will buy your brunch!  No need to commit to every race-I'm a candy ass anymore so I won't race if it is raining.
