      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. Viewership & Ratings?

    It would be 55% of whatever they could sell it for.
  2. Most Valuable Anarchist

    Steady now.
  3. Please explain...

    Can any of you nerds educate the rest of SA about the difference between rack, wing, flair? #sportsboatsrule. The Super 30 Rule
  4. The rule is 30ft monohull, no racks

    They're just deck flairs. Sightly exaggerated ones, I'll give you that.
  5. The rule is 30ft monohull, no racks

    That's true, but there are enough skiffs around Sydney already.

    You can't just win stuff willy nilly.
  7. Someone said the race begins when the rule is announced. In Sydney, Chris Sligar (fair winds), basically said anyone with a fast 30fter, come and have a go. Mono-hull, 30ft, asymmetric, no racks, self righting. That was the rule. First to the bar. That prompted an arms race of sorts, with most boats undergoing heavy modification every off season. It was always cool to see what happened to each boat over winter. Wings, square tops, water ballast, canting keels, inboards taken out etc... The Super 30s were born and one of the best examples is (sadly) for sale. I used to race this one. I think I hold the top speed record (24kts with just me and two birds on board). Very good times indeed. Enjoy new owner, whoever you are.
  8. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Great to see AT come in. Motherfucker could have done the Sydney-to-Hobart single handed and beaten the record. Bet his boat is worth a bit more now, slightly used, one owner.
  9. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Just finishing this race is like a massive win. They have built the brand well - exciting times ahead. Hope the Volvo can quickly adapt and learn from this. Can we put foils on a v65 eh?
  10. World Sailing General Assembly

    So ham-fisted. They all just wanted to go to lunch.
  11. World Sailing General Assembly

    Well that event, with all the event organizers there, was a shambles.
  12. Just watched the video. Can anyone confirm that this is the same organisation that primarily exists to organize events? As in, it's event organizing that they do?
  13. j70 worlds

    Looking forward to Race 8. "Coming up" it says.
  14. Memosail watch

    Goes for about $1,500 if you still had it mate...
