      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.

ECMWF has already started forecasting the frontal line further south than this morning and moving out east. GFS looks just a bit behind on it's rate of track SE. So, I'm pulling for the ECMWF to keep accelerating and moving out of the way. Although it is pretty light after the front moves through.

If you guys are using Windytv.com to look at the ECMWF, don't hold your breath on outside 96 hour accuracy.

I never put much credence in any forecast out beyond 4 days. But, it is fun to speculate.

Looking like the Saturday starters are going to be better timed with the pressure coming through.  Still too far to have any faith but still.

Why does anyone think the race would allow paid weather and routing services during the race? Can't the navigator do some work himself? This is not a fully over-paid VOR or RTW record race. 

If you can't figure out how to get a sailboat to PV  by yourself -  fly!
