      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.

I have ordered shirts from the New Zealand site often over the years from here in Canada - never a problem. I also order from Europe and have had the same positive experience. Sometimes the customs get hold of it and it can cost you a few extra bucks but always worth it to have something unique. Quality has always been good

Why would you want gear from a boat/program you have no direct involvement with, still an old believer if you hav'nt sailed or worked on the boat you shouldn't wear the gear.

 

Unless your female and did all the right things to earn the shirt

Its not a team member polo or anything like that... Its to show your support for who you are supporting. I totally agree with you on a smaller scale with boats and for all programs and regattas, but this is the same as buying a jersey for a pro sports team you like.

most people have some type of pro sports team hat, shirt, sticker on there car window and all they do is watch the team on TV, I would rather have a regatta shirt (and I have a lot of them from races I have done) then a baseball cap from some team of whiny millionares.

That is a stupid statement for all the obvious reasons, as others have stated. Also, my friends are smart enough to know that I haven't been away down in New Zealand working on "the boat".

If you DO want a shirt or whatever one piece of advice. European sizes run one size smaller than US sizes, so if you wear a large shirt order an XL from Europe. At least that has been my experience when traveling. I guess that it has something to do with all Americans being lard asses.
