      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. damn, one more Majic drops out of OD. WTF were they thinking, taking on ASBA like that. They were bound to have their ass handed to them if successful. Nobody who spends 100k on a sportsboat wants to look like a complete fool.

    Good on you again Judge!
  3. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    That's good.

    Thanks Judge, in a week or 2, but I was wondering in general, not age. I have emailed him and not heard, or seen him around here for a bit. So no doubt life is just to busy with turning 43 and all.

    Anybody know how HcW is?

    Why not do it at the Trailable Nationals or similar regatta, where you are more likely to get interest in the idea of the little shipping crates. If you are going to line up do it so others can see you first hand.

    Just make sure your Hartley isn't protested for measurement issues, and it was an 18. Not only undersized, but chute less as well. Bring on SMS.

    Change the date. You did ask! I really should get back to work.

    and the little 5.9 was Matts boat and Matts boat was Dannys boat so that makes 4.5.

    Well it's not Saturday morning, of course he hasn't entered yet!

    And he is a quiet unassuming young lad but Taking Back Sunday (48) Andrew Stewart Elliott 7 is also flying the flag.

    Where are the rest of the E7's BeG, you're it so far. Unfortunately the stars continue to stay out of alignment for some. Perhaps one day when the E7 NSW's are not the following weekend, it may change. In the meantime some of us hope our donations will make up for us not being there, I know Goat would much rather see my money! Good luck to sailors and those that make it possible, and if you can't get there it is easy to support from afar.

    Is that the Stig?
  14. i550

    Yeah Dog saw what happened, but perhaps the thing that was a a little wrong was starting between those 2, I think Stevro said that he normally would be above. Good luck keeping your I out of the way.

    reckon it's manageable via a dinghy racers M.O. we handful of SBs are racing 150 wallopers every sunday at the mo, and been doing so for years tactically a faster smaller boat must steer around them to a great degree, which is do-able given your tacking down and up. 'buffalo girls' mantra get near em and you increase your elapsed time, stay away and yr faster and won't hook up . mark roundings, ?? get in the line, NO '2 abreast' , if you get on their transom these blokes often leave a big enough gap to sail a truck thru anyways (or a handful of i550s?) . With respect, you are missing the point, G. The SBs are new here, and in mixed fleet racing you will see more pictures of the foregoing (and they weren't taken here). And yeah a faster SB has to sail around the lead mines, but the pic demonstrates not only what may happen, but also what will happen when SBs look for an advantage at a rounding with big boats when the two hit the mark at the same time. Glad you have it all figured out, but dude, quit breaking my balls and open your eyes. Bloody quotes! Not that I should be seen as agreeing with Gybeset, but.. I think he was saying that there is no need to try and wind through, just wait a moment and a big hole will likely appear. The Magics at our club that come storming in at the last expecting room (or at least putting the sensible people off) always end up in strife. Sorry, if you did get what he said but you don't get it. Oops, back to I550s.
