Default Registration now Open !

Well I guess the spam bots have finally won.

I have officially closed the registration for the site until further notice. I simply refuse to go thru hundreds of fake accounts to try and find the one or two real accounts, which more often than not get deleted by mistake because of the shear numbers of fake users that I have to go thru every night. It is exhausting, no fun and a complete waste of my time.

I will now only accept new registrations via email. You must include a user name, password, email address, and a brief description of your interest in sailing. The more info you supply, the faster your account will be set up. No info - No account - no exceptions

You can find my email address by clicking on my user name, follow the drop down menu.

Thank you all for your understanding and support


Sailingx

Is there some sort of skill testing question we could ask that only a sailor would know?
Maybe "what are the key ingredients to a dark and stormy?" or "What do you call a windy day after two days of no wind?" or maybe something about being blown ashore...
