      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.

    Just thought I'd share the photos I took of the start of the Maria race. If you'd like any of them full size let me know. They're not all perfectly focused though, the lens I was using is pretty crap. http://www.flickr.com/photos/8052251@N04/s...57622891350426/

    From what I've heard it's a super 30, not sure if Mike told me that or one of the guys that'll be sailing on her. The boat was bought from a guy in SA but I guess it could have come from WA originally. Someone asked about the trailer sailer/sportsboat parked at the Royals, I don't know what it is but it's apparently got a canting keel with a 300kg bulb. Anyone know any more?

    That is the new Wild West. Started life as a super 30, Mike added a scoop and the sprit and possibly some other mods, design work done by Fred Barrett. I think the keel on it is the one that came with the boat but a new deeper lighter one will be built. The rig is from an FT10, the sails with the boat were from a Mumm 30. Thats what I've heard anyway. Theres also a Wright 35 on it's way too.

    Thanks Sparky we had a fantastic time. We had a great tacking duel with some of the big boats from Middleton light to when the breeze filled in from the SE, then the kite ride all the way into Prot Cygnet was awesome. Credit goes to Tina my crew/co-skipper, she has only been sailing for about a year and only twice on my boat. She helmed during all the downwind stuff and did an exceptional job. Can't wait for the DSS Two Handed Worlds.
