      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. Not saying anything other than stating that that's the device they went for (apparently) so i assume they didn't have a sat phone.. I only EPIRB when It's immanent death, but that's just me... Radio France / Spain / Italy / Moscow / BBC / Armed Services / America..... I loved the HF back in the day doing deliveries.
  2. I believe Hollywood reached assistance through HF just last week.... mmmmmm

    One more time for the record..... Shockwave grounding had nothing to do with instruments... Human visual mistake at night.. I thankfully stayed away from here over the weekend. The comments are just nuts. Some SA posters have reached a new low here for me. (many seemed to have come for the car crash) Sincere condolences to the family of the deceased crewman. Congrats to Scally Anytime we leave our lounge rooms we risk our lives but it's our choice... No real winners here... I'm out.

    Down here some of us call it a "Cazif" Be-cause if it wasn't there, your guts would fall out.

    We all have Scrotums as well
  11. I think it should be more up to us at club level. At my local (Cronulla) we have the money and have bought boats (Bics) and have intro days and Sunday come and try but we still struggle and now we are down in all divisions. We compete with the local surf clubs for numbers but they do such a good job that we just can't compete. Parents drop their kids off early and sun bake / socialize while the club baby sits them. By lunch they are done and have the day off were sailing is way more expensive and time consuming... I don't have the answers and will gladly take advise from all in an attempt to get back to the glory days. Matt Allen is a great guy and will listen... I was going to approach him myself soon to discuss it...
  12. i just think less people are sailing..... We are seeing it across the board in dinghy sailing.. clubs are struggling and eventually it filters up to big boats.
