      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.

"that was the practice kite, right?"

 

"HOW much does a new one cost!?"

 

"I told you that cloth felt too soft."

There's no "but we've only got half a kite" in T.E.A.M., so get on the wire.

For windy wellington sailing, the local 470 class association decided a new heavy air 4\7ths kite for the 470 would be best.

Just three months later, 'quick-release' underwear was in full production thanks to an epiphany on the water.

 

Supplied with Port and Starboard ripstop tabs for rapid deployment in even the most crowded nightclubs, the 'Air-Gusset' was proving popular in many shore-side watering holes.

"Man, you clearly can't trim a kite to save your ass. The pole clearly has to go down about at least an inch or two . . . "

1) That's the wrong kite! The overhead kite is in the other turtle. Now we have two Kites and next time don't use the pole.

 

2) Look it's a Maxi pad with no wings!

Two days after all the crews put up the 700 Euro "damage deposit" at the World Sailing Games for the provided boats and sails Olimpic Sails passed out the "fine Print"

 

!!! WARNING: our top performing spinnakers are made of POLYESTER fabrics, which gives the highest performance being stiffer than commonly used Nylons. This allows the transmission of power to the boat earlier. Whilst the elasticity of Nylon has the effect of “absorbing part of the power”. POLYESTER spinnakers are VERY FRAGILE especially, when BRAND NEW. You should use them with all possible CARE and protect them from all sharp parts of your boat, including the Jib clew, the sail-bag, etc. After some use the polyester looses some of the finishing coat, making it slightly more elastic, therefore less easy to break.

 

(this is actually what happened and several teams ended up eating a lot of euros :( )
