      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. Kiwis lead JJ Giltinan

    Final NZ, NZ, Aus, Aus, Aus, U.S.A. , NZ, NZ, note: Harken USA skipper was Riley Gibbs standing in for Howie Hamlin
  2. Kiwis lead JJ Giltinan

    only 3 sails per season, and you need six sails across the two rigs, as mentioned they must be stamped in about 4 months prior to the JJ Giltinan If you sail a US, NZ or European regatta in the aussie off-season you can gain an extra sail or two, an aussie main might be a little heavier because its built to be reefable? Maybe Frogman can expand on any other differences?
  3. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    there's distortion in that pic, but nevertheless he's the biggest loser in the fleet
  4. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    1. Comanche are expected and obliged by the rules to ENFORCE them, e.g. protest 2. the gentlemanly option was for the infringing party to RETIRE after the incident. RRS Basic Principles. SPORTSMANSHIP AND THE RULES Competitors in the sport of sailing are governed by a body of rules that they are expected to follow and enforce. A fundamental principle of sportsmanship is that when competitors break a rule they will promptly take a penalty, which may be to retire.

    ha ha, no, yes, kinda fact is the League rolls a huge percentage of it's budget into the fleet/ racing, more than any other sporting club i'd say. Probably the only reason there is a quality fleet of 18s racing. Woody was a steady hand in directing and managing the club to this position. As Ate mentions the 16s have quite large and vibrant community clubs and support the fleet, the association , basically the combined clubs, have set up a new boat package, and sails/rig package that is a huge saving
