      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.

Texas High Performance Singlehanders Multiplying

Recommended Posts

It appears that a new trend is happening at Rush Creek Yacht Club in Heath Texas. Although the powers to be have rejected and banished the most radical of sailing craft, "18 Footer" to the boneyard there are now some exciting new boats at the club. The count now includes,  2 Musto Skiffs, a Swift Solo, a UFO, an EVO, an IC, an AC, an Aero, and a 49r. I'm calling for a Texas Singlehanded Championship this spring. Anyone else like to join.  I know, getting them to sail their boats will be next to impossible but one can hope. YeeHaw.

You know I'm all in! So that makes two AC! You keep the wind below 15 and I'll fly my 23sq mtr Welsh flag every time. We can have the Texas HPDR!

 Am gunna sail my FD in TCC so keep me informed.

And make them sail the boats, not just rot in yard, sad to see a musto cf mast flaking away.

I'm not sure the 9 foot UFO would take the abuse of 300lbs but that's what insurance is for, right? Other than that I know I could sail everything out there so far. Can you say the same?

TN,

It turns out the 49r and Swift solo are here because the owner in MN is having his hips replaced. The IC and AC are mine, the Aero and EVO are Rods so that leaves 4 not counting the Mustos but I've yet to see them sail. For a moment I thought things were a changing. Oh well, carry on.

Our Evo's will hit Texas in Late January.   You want to plan a throw-down at Rush Creek?  Something formally informal, sponsored by Vela Sailing of course?
