      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.

This ain't about ass - it's about balls. These girls have 'em. Some of them are seriously underage - just so you know before you start salivating.

It was a fun weekend for all of us, and I was privileged to get to shoot such a photogenic group of girls. If you'd like to see all the edited shots from all the action this weekend, please check them out here. You can order prints or download the full-resolution files for a small fee - all of which goes directly to a very needy charity; it's called the Fund for Mer's New Lens.


Thanks for tuning in to our coverage, and thanks for all your support!

how come there are so many young teenagers onboard for a regatta?


mandatory to have one crew under 16 (18)yrs?

weight-limit and some crews just filled up with local optimist sailors?

charity race to get the youngsters of the local sailing club racing on big boats?

or are there just so many parents racing that brought their childs along?


Does anybody know?


I mean.. there have even been rules under IMS allowing additional 50kg (110lb) of crew weight without a rating penalty, if one crew member is under 14..

great to get in younger sailors for the weekend regattas

The fleet worked with the junior sailing program out of LYC and each boat took someone aboard Saturdays race. It was a great idea and the kids had a blast. There is a video on one of the threads of Clean interviewing the kids about it.


I'd also like to say to Mer, I love your work. We asked and you delivered some beautiful shots of the women sailing. Inspirational stuff.
