Welcome to the Rhodes 22 Owners' Group Mailing List. This list is open to everyone with an interest in the Rhodes 22 sailboat. It is an automated email distribution list where messages addressed to the list are copied to every list member's mailbox.
The list is maintained by rhodes22.org as a courtesy to Rhodes 22 sailboat fans worldwide. It is hoped that the list will promote discussion about the Rhodes 22 sailboat and provide members with a means of sharing their interests and experiences.
The Rhodes 22 Owners' Group Mailing List will be open to discussion of all subjects specifically referring to Rhodes 22 sailboats or, Rhodes sailors. The focus of this group includes, but is not limited to:
Posts to the group are expected to be considerate of other readers. Personal abuse, flames, and obscenities are not appreciated; but we are sailors...
To a certain extent, the interaction is about what you would expect in any informal social setting, for example, a bar. It is recommended that you get to know people first and introduce yourself (about the same social rules that you would use to meet any new group of people). There is a high level of chitchat on the list, and what you might think is insulting to a group or region might only be people kidding each other after knowing each other for years. As in any bar, the subjects of politics and religion can lead to heated augments and bar fights. These might be best avoided.
It is recognized that a group is only whoever posts to it, no more and no less. We can only talk about what people post about. You earn respect on the list by your postings and trying to help each other, you cannot demand it. Most sailing topics we have talked about at one time or another already, we chit chat in the mean time, waiting to answer questions or for a new subject/story. If you want to know something, please post it, the more detail the better. If someone is trying to help you please answer their reasonable questions. If you can help someone, again, post it. Try to repay the knowledge you may have gained.
