      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. Wow.... someone should ease that sheet
  2. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    With all due respect to many good posters here...... Firstly, this is SA and second, the thread was over for most of us a week back..... There was no stopping the drift / shit show after certain peoples opinions were published so Desp Ave you might want to ease back on directing people elsewhere... By posting your comments on the drift, you feed the drift. BTW... Re your comments below.....Are there threads with no bullshit on SA....?

    If he or his socks get booted, do your down votes disappear ...?

    Interesting theory I just got notification that Randumb quoted me.... this ignore thing is weird..

    A = Too late B = Too late A + B = Best chance When reading Handjobs new post it's quite clear he is aware of the many haters.... He kind of apologizes before making his point..... SA is SA so I not calling for a ban on him or Randumb. It's my choice to care or not.

    Hahaha..... I went for a ride up there a few years ago and was bored so took a mate out on Rags for the day as a paying punter.... I actually had a ball.... It's nice to have no responsibilitys other than sinking as much piss as humanly possible.... I'd do it again Sorry back to to the trolls..........

    Yep agree it won't factor as much... it won't be as "forced" as teams now have proven the worth of female sailors beyond doubt... Again it's just my take. I've already had this conversation with some involved and will be having another chat with others when they return to confirm.

    I would still be surprised... The rule is a winner... No need to mess with it imo
  9. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Can you be specific and name names (one time only) so the newbies know the serial offenders and don't quote them.... Many broke the rules last leg and dealing with the likes of R____m's dribble is just a punish. (On the scale of DL on foiling). Thanks in advance PS. I had dibs on Spohie before Jack........ for the record.

  12. Where are you sailing out of.....

    Multi back ground...?   We may have met

    1. Chidz


      good morning  - would be surprised if we hadn't ...

      1969 - 1976 MJs out of Cronulla

      '76 - mid 80s Moths out of Cronulla & connels Pt

      mid 80s - early 90s Fireballs @ Kog Bay

      then Northies for a bit (boring!!!)

      then MGs @ Kog & St. Goerge

      + few other bits along way (Etchells/Ynglings/yada yada)

      Won/placed a few champs along the way.

      2001 blew wrist up which knocked me out of work & sailing, but HAD to do it again. Did some guesties on mate's MASRM, but not own boat. Had to work it out smart (can't risk landing on wrist, or do much rope/sail handling - yeah I'm basically useless - get told that all the time) ... part of that was sailing on a stable platform - multis.

      So, after 10 years away had a deposit on new F22 (met Ian F & took me on unsolicited tour of factory), but ultimately when $ went down so did my finances, and waiting was gettting to me. Guestied on a couple of multis.

      Picked up Nuddy's mooring minder (Sprint) and re-rigged it & been having some fun, but want to go faster with a newer toy!

      Am heavily into concept of 'adventure racing' now - too old and out of practice for much high end round-the-cans stuff these days (eg Marlay Pt, Heaven Can Wait, etc - like to travel, which impacts on type of boat to purchase)

      what's your email/contact? What do you think about going thirds with Graeme Rivett?

      that's my story in a nutshell - how about yours?

    Dw has a large circle sailors around him from years of campaigning big boats in OZ... Many of these people would jump with no notice to do a delivery like this (who wouldn't) Australia has also cornered the market on 100ft supermaxis so not surprised there is people ready to take on that delivery.... They are all good sailors with a shit ton of experience. Larry has worked for everyone and sailed on everything... Quiet and unassuming, he is a legend... Pearcey being shore crew knows the boat intimately... Goldy and Bucko are solid as.... as NBG says.... You could trust this lot with your life
