      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. Heaven Can Wait charity race 2018

    Bugger it was the right year though!
  2. Another to keep in mind is the Heaven Can wait race on Lake Macquarie on the 24-25th of March, another challenging race but a great experience, Evil Gnome will be doing the 12 hour race again, ran the 24 hour race past the crew and there wasn't a great response so the 12 hour it is, navigating your way around Lake Macquarie at night is fantastic. So put it on your to do list it is also for a very good cause the Cancer Council of NSW. See you there Evil
  3. Just to keep in mind is the Marley Point overnight race this year, Saturday 10th of March should be a good rollup, the two F85's are going from Wangi, see if we can get more Multi's this year, Marley = very challenging but great experience.

    Big shock seems like he was one of those people who would live forever, RIP to a legend and thanks for the two Farriers I have built and owned and the great moments sailing them, his legacy is spread around the world. Evil Gnome

  9. Airlie Hammo Magnetic 2017

    Wouldn't it look good for a fleet of Diams racing around, I hope the momentum keeps going, very nice boat.

    They are heaps better still a bit to go so I will muck around in winter and do some more work, well worth doing.

    Evil Gnome finished, line honours 12 hours and first on handicap one lap dash, still had things go wrong, tramp came out of the track on one side early on, jib block attachment broke and had to be tied on but that was all. This is the hardest inshore race in Australia and even doing the 12 hour we got battered, rained on, near lightning strikes, wind squalls from the storms and at the start super hot and no wind, we had it all, the 24 hour guys just double that. Half way through the race we had to round a buoy at the southern end of the lake and down there was a nasty storm, so we had to get in quick, get around and get out, then heading north there was a westerly storm over the back of the middle part of the lake, we went east and skirted around the edge of it, there was a lot of lightning over the land but dissipated before it got to us, another moment was when we were going from Speers point to Toronto when one of those low rolling squall clouds came in with near 30 knots of wind with horizontal rain, just as we had to bear off to the mark the squall went down to 12 knots so we headed off for the dark hours where the breeze dropped back a bit so when we came to the 12 hour time we were over near Speers Point and the breeze kicked in up to 20 knots, it was then a solid work back th Wangi, just what you need after 12 hours, so we came in tired, wet and hungry after all you can only eat so many bread and chicken rolls with mayo before you need a change. So on my Raceqs log before the iphone battery died we logged 84 nm in 9.50hours which would average 106 nm in 12 hours roughly, the official point to point distance was 90nm no tacking or jibing angles included, how many tacks and jibes did we do, who knows but there is a lot which makes it very hard and challenging race, three of us are coming back next year number 4 needs some more time. I challenge more multi's next year, come and test yourself. Evil

    Did you build your rudders Clive or are they recycled from a cat?Wayne They are the 85 rudders about 200mm shorter, why because the one that broke I added a bit inside the casting so the load point was not on the exit of the casting, i'll get a measurement of their length ewhen the boat gets home, it's having a short holiday in Wangi waiting for next weekends Heaven Can Wait 12 hour race, also did a bearing on the last trip home from wangi, boat stayed together, trailer broke

    Evil Gnome is halfway between Mad Hatters long cabin and the short day sailing one, mine is built with E glass and epoxy with carbon where the plans specify.
