      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.

    I'll bite. Whats your point?
  8. too much?

    I agree, a mix of races to make up a series. The Australian IRC nationals are very good at this, 1 long race, 4 W/L 4 Mid-distance races

    is not going to make it to the start line unfortunately. Handicaps. http://dssinc-results.org/results/2016L2H/2016L2H/series.htm Almost enough boats for divisions with in handicaps. Big fleet for a Tassie race. It appears they have split divisions looking at the categories in the Race Tracker - http://yb.tl/l2h2016 PHS, AMS and IRC each have an overall division, division 1 and division 2. Good on the clubs for giving the sailors what they want. Good stuff!

    Tasmanian Aquaculture Industry Information Night October 19, 2016 http://www.sailing.org.au/tasmanian-aquaculture-industry-information-night/ On Monday November 7, representatives from the Tasmanian Salmon Farming Industry will be meeting with a number of officials from Tasmanian yacht clubs to discuss proposed developments within Storm Bay. As the gateway to the Derwent and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, Storm Bay regularly sees large numbers of sailors passing through, whether they be racing, cruising or delivering yachts to and from Hobart and the Huon and Channel regions. With this in mind, Australian Sailing in conjunction with the Tasmanian Salmonid Growers Association have called a stakeholders meeting as part of the community consultation process for proposed salmon farm developments within Storm Bay. At this meeting officials and staff from southern Tasmanian yacht clubs will discuss the impact that the proposed developments may have on sailing activities in the area. It is hoped that the meeting between clubs and the salmon farming industry may lead to a better understanding of each others activities and enhance the on-water relationship between sailors and fish farm staff. Possible outcomes for sailors may include increased rescue capacity of fish-farm staff to help sailors in distress and improved navigation aids, including AIS transponders associated with the farms to mark their locations and easier to understand lighting systems to identify farms

    Huon Ronda is 78 m is not pilot exempt masters yet. This is ironic that the comments on this page are that yachties from "town" should keep their noses out of what happens in rural areas. But when a ship from the rural area comes up to town and blasts around the river on an exercise that could be done any time of the week at any time of the year on any part of the river we are all " dickhead recreational sailors interfering with commercial vessels". That skipper lined up that fleet 3/4 of a mile if not more up the river and went straight through the fleet. There was no need for it. There has never been an issue like this before on the river. Lydia your logic and arguments are suspect based on bitter\bial emotion and not common sense making your position weak reducing you to a ranting fool.
