      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.

Boracay Race on life support

Recommended Posts

The major sponsor of the Boaracay Race and Series has pulled out. 

 

SBBR IS CANCELLED!

To: Subic Sailng Much to our regrets, Standard Insurance is pulling out its sponsorship together with its support equipment to the above Regatta as a result of President Duterte's calling Boracay Island as a "cesspool". As a responsible company which adheres to strict environmental compliance, we are restraint in exposing the regatta, its organizers and participants to health risks aside from also risking our reputation. Please be guided accordingly.

Thank you.

ERNESTO T. ECHAUZ Group Chairman Standard Insurance

 

However, the organiser are doing thier best to make sure the Race is on.  The Philippines Long Distance Telephone Company recently approached the MYC about sponsoring a sailing event.  Bryan Levinge I discussed this and felt that in the interest of the sport that we should direct PLDT to the Boracay Race.  As of yesterday afternoon I believe they have talked. 

Marcus Avecilla has said that they are doing their best to make something happen. 

“Noted. We will scramble to get this thing going still. As we do not want to loose credibility as the organizers.  Appreciate your support. Will keep you posted.”

We are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

I think the boss has said the hotels must close so hence the regatta is toast?
Perhaps a blessing so they get control of sewerage so it doesnt end up like Phuket where none of your crew would dare go swimming any more
