      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. Koa out with starter motor issues (from the yacht tracker), very sad for the crew on board.
  2. Looks like Hartbreaker is back in the race, despite earlier reports and 0kts at Eden for a bit. It ain't over til it's over. Good on 'em!
  3. Hartbreaker looks to be retiring (tracker/their Facebook page)
  4. Retired with steering damage. Thanks for confirming. How did you hear? I thought I had every possible channel covered? 😜
  5. Koa at sub 5 kts for over half an hour...
  6. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-01-07/missing-yachtsmen-believed-dead-after-nsw-storms/7072984 Unbearably horrible.
  7. The NOR lists a change to Rrs 55. See the website.
  8. Medium boat series happened last weekend, kinda sorta - Indian, concubine, ichi, cougar, black jack etc etc Looking forward to the big boat entertainment from my desk, might have to bring in the far seeing glasses.
  9. Funny discussion last night about the various traditions and superstitions around re-naming a boat and what needs to be done to make sure the good omens stays on your side. Mullet catching, dry hauling, champage smashing - it was all sounding pretty ceremonial! Came on here to find a thread on it and couldn’t see one – surprised! So starting one myself … (because if it gets written on anarchy, it must be true ) What are the rules arounf boat re-naming?
  10. No different digs this year, tactician sold is unit,, not very nice. We have some other accom up near the school on the "main road" . Book us in, I can see Andy as the new master chef. I think we have our boat parked next to yours for the week. We best flash up the dockside esky. Good luck on the trip to SP, hope you have some long service leave!!!, Nice one, we are in behind the old yacht club so I'll word Andy up, he's a pretty good cook. Good news re neighbouring boats - dockside esky is on! I'll speak to the boys and makesure we have something big enough Was a slow old trip north, but good times. Flew back first thing this am for work today :| Bit of dust on from last night. No rest for the wicked!
  11. Not all of them! You in the same accom as last year Pillow? We will have to return the favour and have you guys over for dinner this time
  12. Should be some fun racing for you - I heard Local Hero are looking at making the trip south this year too.
