      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.

    how about wait until the details are known and not jump to assumption and presumption.
  2. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    condolences to family friends and crew
  3. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    yeah but many cant even get in there

    Cos when you get there all you do is turn around and head home....... A nowhere race other than a qualifier perhaps. People dont have the time for these races, same with overnighters.

    Doesnt seem to be an issue in Port Lincoln
  6. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    The Australian Gouge Australian Sailing Championships Festival of Sail Race Week. How much can they charge for this cluster fuck
  7. overlay, people die and you bitch about not typing or spelling properly, looks to me like you are a balanced human Guess you need to re evaluate your priorities cupcake. quit the speculation and leave it to the experts to make an informed decision
  8. re the 40.7, not sure who says they rate well except they did on IMS years ago. On IRC, they are shite. If you have one, you need the new rudder to replace the original one that stalls and rolls you over. The best one around was dick fiddocks fruit machine that was at rmys a couple of years ago. Not sure where it is now. the New First 40's rate better but not in the price range. Great room and features for a 40 footer though.

    the christmas races are usually held in shut down periods so outside the delivery and qualification times, probably easier to get time off for. as someone said before, people dont have the time, and crew are hard to find. as soon as the race went from a day race to a day/night race, we lost half the crew due to other commitments. I agree its a shame there arent many overnighters any more, but times change. Ask golf clubs about shrinking membership
  10. Sydney To Hobart 2018

    Could you buy a multi and take that or is the forecast no good ?
  11. wasnt the inglis 50 walk on the wild side which I think is in wa last I heard. I seem to recall g wiz had a habit of hitting the putty in the lincoln race which it looks like that pic is taken from. The ingliss boats were pretty popular for a while, didnt warro have 2, the second one he put an extension on. vendetta was alloy from memory built by the sitadani bros, and there was one more I think all around the same time

    ahhhhhhhhhhh no. no one wants to do them which is why the last syc rbyc 'overnight' race started at 1pm and finished at 10pm everyone bitches and moans about wl racing, but wont take up the offer for alternatives. reflects the current state of keel boat racing in the bay at the moment. piss poor
  13. FP Blink Video

    Forgive my ignorance, but great vid, curious as to how it was shot as it seems to be off the boat alot of the time.

    Seems that the port rudder was the fucked one from the video. Probably disconnected the wheels with the port one stuffed, and they were manually steering on the stb one which might explain it being outside the quadrant range. Not sure all the pontificating about might have, should have or could have is helpful. we were not there, and this isnt a fly by night operation, these guys race all over the place and know their shit..
