      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. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    I'm surprised by the lack support for these guys, or though it appears a lot of the haters are internationals observers. I was in Geelong for the last series and it was fantastic. The course was as close as possible to the pier and marina, which gave for some incredible spectating, however it also meant it was very gusty, any cat sailor would struggle to fly a hull 100% in those conditions let along foil. The media coverage is some of the best I've ever seen for a sailing event and the ability to walk up to the boats and sailors post race and have a chat is priceless. The boats are a challenge to sail, but thats the point. Talk to any Australian around in the old 18foot days and they will remember the skiff boats in between the cricket. That series was developed not for close tactical racing but for extreme visuals that would appeal to the non-sailing sports fan. If you want close, tactical and boring racing go watch a match racing series, there are plenty of them around. If you want cutting edge foiling, setup for live stadium style racing, go to the event and watch it.
