      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. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    Absofukinlutley!! Apart from the scarey shark incident... but more of that to come in our war story for the comp That pic says it all.. Ye me and my guys had THE best day of skiff sailing for a very very long time. Oh the joy of no ferries, no massive tankers, no jet boats and super flat water with no chop If only we could do this every weekend Lake Maq certainly lived up to its rep as one of Aus finest sailing venues Thanks Sean and Mark and all the HcW officials and competitors for making this a truelly unforgetable experience
  2. "Heaven Can Wait" 24 hour Yacht Race

    As one of the 2 "bloody skiffs" that raced the OLD, all I can say is thankyou Evil Gnome for having your foot to the floor on that first lap... otherwise we wouldve had no idea where to go because of the very poor visibility Made our race much easier to see your giant mainsail in the distance, just like a huge flag to guide us thru the rain and mist My guys where thinking all race... geez that big cat is damn fast, and to hear your great story about trying to stay in front of the skiffs while thrashing your gear and crew, well all I can say is "respect" Well done on your first lap and new OLD race record time I hope you guys are entering your story in HCW war story comp, well done and good luck Heres a pic from our race
