      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. An invitation to compete in the first Moreton Bay Multihull Regatta 16-19 March 2018… (Qld Australia) Quick introduction, my name is Mike Peberdy, I’m the owner of XL2 and have enjoyed sailing multihulls (and anything lead free) for many years. A number of us are keen to see regular well populated fleets of multihulls in our own backyard, Moreton Bay (SE Qld). Between the Multihull Yacht Club Qld and Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron we have come up with a regatta that we hope to hold each year 2 weeks prior to the Brisbane to Gladstone. Our goal is to build a regatta with strong entries and a regular on everyone’s calendar. 6 good boats so far have committed to race, with a number of good crews/boats expressing interest. The Program reflects different kinds of Sailing as part of a Day Racing program, with longer races as a chance to stretch the legs, and short courses to test boat handling, there is something for everyone. Yachts with an OMR rating may choose to race with a serious approach to their on-water time, PHS will also be on offer, or multis may wish to cruise in company as part of the 4-day program of activities.
