      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. old farr 40 rebuilt to a hick design in williamstown. australia
  2. Good to here mex
  3. Never presume the other boat knows you are there. Always call your rights.
  4. +1 Were you on Jazz? Had a solid ride down this year - although same tack from start to finish and no sail changes made for a very uneventful trip! Thought it an odd decision by the RC to delay the start by an hour to avoid 1 ship coming through the heads only for 3 to come through at the new start time...
  5. No good can come of this.
  6. I am really looking forward to lincoln week and so is my team.
  7. that is what I meant by keeping an eye on it they will pull the pin if there is 30 to 40 out there on the nose and I will certainly be checking my sainity if this is the case on going out to get my brains belted again for no real reason but to get cold and wet and break shit not that we broke anything going to port fairy but it is hard on the gear.
  8. yes does not look like fun at all will be checking the forecast before we undo the lines but not looking good the orcv will keep a good eye on it being only cat3
  9. try the orcv they do heaps of sssc training so they could use them
  10. could the tp in geelong be another xlr8? or a replacement for a sydney 38?
  11. Oh dear, what's next for it, adding the wings back on? should have left her the way she was what a waste of time and money
