      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. Some suspicious-looking results for Division 3 ... heard that some of the D3 fleet sailed the wrong course (only sailed 2 laps and not 3). Seems that several boats subsequently retired (showing as RAF on results), however it also seems a couple of boats elected NOT to admit fault and retire - which would explain why they won the race by absurd margins on corrected time! Poor form!! By your post you are calling out the winner of Div 3 as a cheat. Have we got this right??? Big call
  2. Apologies Rossco, it was part of challenge, no harm intended http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=86721 No offence taken as I'm guessing you were doing a simple search and arrived at the thread due to the term. Word has it that whilst you aren't gay apparently the bloke you normally fuck knows one. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
  3. AMS = Good IRC (Sorry, Channel) = Gay One design = Best IMHO
  4. I totally agree as Dumpit and Coach obviously have some serious issues with Don.
  5. With all due respect, she only had to beat 3 others. That seems to be a big fleet for Div 0 these days
  6. Is the offer open to girls? Although very much a "Gentlemens" cruise, all sensible people are welcome. I take it you are sensible?
  7. Thanks for the responses guys. If any of you are around across that weekend please jump aboard, make yourself known and grab a beer. Cheers.
  8. A little off topic, but thought this would be the most appropriate thread to get a half sensible answer A few of us SC/AA people are taking a "Gentlemans Cruise" from Melbourne to Hobart (via the East coast) in a very traditional 38' motor cruiser so as to be part of the Wooden Boat Festival this February. Whilst I have raced to Hobart by both coasts on a number of occasions, have never done it on a stink boat. The plan at present is to depart Melbourne and arrive at Port Phillip Heads at first light, with our first port of call Refuge Cove. From there close to Deal (stop there if it cuts up rough, and I have been there before) and continue on to Flinders or even as far as St Helens My questions are, where on Flinders would you stop (if at all) and which side would you take given our relaxed circumstances? and how hard is it to get into St Helens in the dark? Have been in Banks Strait at the wrong time many years ago and it left a lasting impression I guess I am really asking what would be your ideal passage from Refuge to Hobart in a 6 knot stinkboat?
  9. One for the Sydney raiders
  10. Shortwave at SYC 4
  11. A bit soft at the pin
  12. A few shots of the 2008 COTB for those that are interested. And BTW I didn't get paid for posting them attachment=95373:Image011_1.jpg About 15 mins prior to the start.
