      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.

bummer about XS. our day didnt go too hot either, but not quite as bad. Had a MOB, had to stuff it up to get him back onboard as he held onto the life lines. Had hourglasses galore, a torn chute... and then, at the last leeward mark, our roller furler jammed up. Excellent. Went a 1/4 the leg with no jib till we realized we could partially unroll it by unrapping it... Major kudos to the Harken guys for spending the last 4hours getting the old system off and getting a new one on. It was an obvious maintenance foulup on our part.


Had much better starts today, but couldnt seem to hold it. Either an 'unlucky' shift or a gear failure somewhere. Tomorrow should be fun.

Hey Mustang,

Thanks for the report.. bummer...

what are you racing a M24? which one?


Doug, Brian & all team XS: Wishing you the best of luck tomorrow!!!


Thanks. racing a 109.


Atleast, when things werent going wrong, we have the speed potential to do ok. Clock is ticking though.


Given that your a FLA sailor, I'll guess Too Sweet. I'm a regular J/109 trimmer/tactician (depending on the 109 that I'm sailing.) Hopefuly, we'll get a KWRW OD start again soon.

Good Luck for the rest of the week!


btw: Was your MOB due to a lifeline failure?? We've had issues with that in the past.

Oh, BTW... we've had RF issues twice up at 2 different NYYC Rolex Regatta's.

Was that a set pin issue?


mob was from someone tripping and grabing a LL on the way out.


rollerfurling was due to improper adjustment and poor maintenance, my fault.
