      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. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    Quick question Do any of the other states have keelboat associations? (IRC association, AMS association, Offshore association?) One design falls into the same trap as keelboat sailing, the handicap is just worked out a little differently, not on the score sheet as a multiplier on time but in other ways (sails, Pros, boat models/makes, money and any other way you can get an advantage).
  2. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    As far as AMS v's IRC i am sure it has been done to death in other forums. I personally have both but like IRC because it is more consistent with the fleet I race in. AMS seems to have large variances for similar make/model yachts.
  3. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    The yachting Champs is timed post the Sydney 2 Hobart, Melbourne 2 Hobart and Launceston 2 Hobart. Hopefully, these races will help boost numbers for the event. It is acknowledged that sailing has changed but hopefully, it will work out. If not it is still a good opportunity for more racing. I will be getting my boat remeasured and maybe a sail or two might make its way onto the boat. Should be fun.
  4. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    There will be IRC, PHS and maybe ORCI.
  5. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    Top job! they made the effort to go all the way over there to do two series in Melbourne.
  6. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    I think it is straight after the King of the Derwent (held at the DSS) so the 3rd or 4th of Jan is my guess. will confirm once known.
  7. The Australian Yachting Championship 2019 will be held at the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania in early January. Will be a good event. More details to follow

    Good Job NZ. I was impressed from the start with their Managment and Process off and on the boat.
  12. Hello Does anyone know if the Garmin GNX™ 120 7-inch can be used as mast Jumbos in a B&G Hercules System? Thanks in advance.
