      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. 2017 Australian Multihull Championships

    And you wonder why you can't attract serious racers to your events. Nothing wrong with having fun and drawing the winner out of a hat, but can you name any class or type of boat that runs their National titles on PHS ? PHS rewards poor sailing and penalises the good sailors, there is no incentive to improve.

    Congratulations to the Nth Queensland boys on Ulman Sails. Cleaned up with a day to spare, great effort.
  3. 2017 Australian Multihull Championships

  4. 2017 Australian Multihull Championships

    Ulman Sails ( Mad Max) has taken line honours in the first race. Should be some interesting chat at the bar tonight. Look forward to seeing the results.

    I fail to see the relevance of a monohull sailor in cruising divisions comments to any of the above comments.

    Probably because 35 cruising crews are living on their boats, and the damage done to the island has left accomodation very expensive and not so easy to come by. Reality has never been a strong point on anarchy

    George Owen has entered a Vplp,will be interesting to see if this is a Diam 24 one design or something different on OMR.

    Seems cruising division is picking up the little boats this year with 2 Grainger 075's and a couple of little Farriers too.Our owner described it as "every child wins a prize division"
  9. Airlie Hammo Magnetic 2017

    Rumours of a Diam 24
  10. Airlie Hammo Magnetic 2017

    Nice new mainsail for Top gun measured the other day and a full set of flash new rags for Ullman Sails/Mad Max. The new owner is going to take this boat to a whole new level of performance.

    What's left of Sirrocco has left town. Hopefully the McMillan boys can put her Bach together. We did consider buying the wreck and stripping it.

    Another 075 entered in cruising. Best get the Gnome finished seeing as it's entered.
