      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.

    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!

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.

    Peregrine is div c irc Agree, nice looking boat and well sailed.
  15. Sydney 36 Moulds for Sale

    Qu. Wouldnt the extra length + larger sail area + stripped insides etc be starting to err on the side of them getting bumped up to IRC div B? Cant seem to find the div C ratings from the previous regattas atm but would think that must be getting towards the top of it? Im sure they have it sussed and are sitting nicely just under the rating cut off...
