      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.

  1. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    Would love to see some more photo's! Do you have to run aground for some attention? The owner may not believe we were actually there!
  2. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    So DAVO, with which boat are you intending to scare the bottom with this year? M VB can raft with jury rig. Figure if we run aground we just pick it up! Ballasted by a big esky. Performance should increase every 15-20 mins. I still stand by the claim the naviguessers were to blame?????
  3. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    Hoping to have another boat on the start line for the 24hr do. Just gotta get some safety gear on the boat and we're in. Plenty of crew but a lot of effort needed in these last few weeks. Hope we get there!

    I`ll go 96 only because I couldn`t get 69 Well maybe I lie Beat the drum and they will come!
  5. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    We went for the cause but I would be lying if I said we weren't sailing for a result as well. The organisers of this event have taken past criticism and even attacks on the organisation positively and made changes accordingly. Pretty sure all the feedback that everyone provides will be beneficial to an even better event next year. Come one come all! The invitation is out to the world. Regards Davo

    Chris, Was that you that I got the call from, via the HCW Mobile when you and Terra Australis met up? I hate to pour gas on a fire, but that call made me grin a bit: "HCW Race Mobile, this is Blake" "Hello, do you have the number for Coastal Patrol? We're aground near, ummm... Summerland Point." "You mean the phone number? Sorry, no, but I'd be happy to call them on VHF 73 for you!" (said with a cheery voice, of course) "Ugh... No!!!" (heard in the background) At that point I realized that the phone call was an attempt to avoid a public airing of being aground. Sorry 'bout that, mate! Not me but most likely the equally embarrassed navigation team At the end of the day however I was steering and I ran her aground!

    After the success of this years event can you imagine how big it could be with the participation of all lake clubs, their sailors and interstate/ international competitors? Here's one for you all. Let's make this one of THE biggest events held on an an inland waterway in Oz (if not the world!) Chris

    Although we didn't have it this time around. Something for all to consider for the cuisine. Hot dogs are one food that is welcome to anyone's belly and simple!
  9. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    I have being to try to participate in this event from it's inception and finally got the opportunity to do so this year. After being in communication with Shaun in the early stages of making a move to another location I was very pleased that the offer came for RMYCT to hold the event. I am hoping that all participants were happy with the new host and enjoyed their stay on the Westside! I sailed on "Inner Circle" and whilst starting well and pushing the boat hard to maintain a favourable attachment to the leaders we unfortunately found Terra Australis during the night and the bitch wouldn't let go The end for us! Another 6 or so tonnes lighter we may have kept in touch with the lighter fast sportsboats. I am sure we frustrated them a litte when it took them so long to throw us My hat is off again to Shaun and all the organisers AND participants of this years event and I can only hope that Toronto can host next years event and that we see an increased support around the lake for this great event and cause. Not only from LMYC but our own club and other clubs aswell. Fair sailing to you all and thanks. Chris

    Very glad to have been a part of this years race. Sadly it wasn't for as long as we had planned though! Got to get back out in the ocean away from land

    Well if you're the one on the hill singing and playing half a tree trunk going blubber, blubber, blubber while hanging off a goon your identity will be made!

    You obviously haven't visited Kurri or Neck Knock ( Cessnock) Two head country and you can hear the banjoes in the hills (main street)

    It's the angle of the dangle in layman's terms!
