      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. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    The only way you could get the job done, + vodka.........
  2. Why don't more people race?

    Tired of a handicapping system that thinks we're 17% quicker even though we're giving away 15ft of waterline
  3. Yours for $345k kiwi, includes shipping.
  4. And what MR said
  5. I still call Australia home

    Did he ask Tanya first?
  6. House batteries

    JS who has the distribution/retail rights for Firefly in AUS?
  7. AC 36 Protocol

    Population GBR = ~65m. Population NZL = ~4m Seems like you should have a larger pool of talent to draw from; sailors, designs, sponors. That seems rather unfair.
  8. AC 36 Protocol

    In 27kts, 2.5m swell, wind against tide?
  9. AC 36 Protocol

    Yeap and the fundamental principles of speed and height.
  10. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    So 75ft monos for the AC in AKL, which ex-maxi owner(s) are in?
  11. AC 36 Protocol

    +1. We may even get proper wind limits and courses. Countries that have spent time and effort developing homegrown sailing talent should do well. Definately expect an Aussie challenager or two.
  12. Yacht brokerage owner/director earnings?

  13. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    I would be surprised if Norths even answered the phone for $50k.
  14. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Life Buoy, Brisbane to Keppel?
