      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.

    I will leave that up to you to work out SteveOf course, work it out myself!! Why didn't I think of that? Kind of makes these forums irrelevant. So much bandwidth to be saved. Haha it did seem more humorous after a few beers, I was hoping that the new owners would reveal themselves. However I think they are too busy playing with their new toy.

    Cleopatra (Mumm 30)?? I see there is also a new (around here) Northshore NSX arrived too. Who has bought Cleopatra? And what will Mr Sharp buy as his 8th new boat in 16 years? I will leave that up to you to work out Steve

    Cleopatra (Mumm 30)?? I see there is also a new (around here) Northshore NSX arrived too. you could be on the money Weyalan Yes I had a look at the new NSX Foreshore the other day, I reckon she will scrub up pretty well. Looking forward to racing her in the 38 c

    It's great to see another boat being purchased with intent to race in div 1. We just delivered her from port houn to bellerive yesterday. Nothing like sustained 40knts on nose. It's not my boat so I will leave it up to the new owner to let you know what boat it is.

    I agree the crown series was excellent as always. We ended up with a win in both phs and ams in our devision, I am a little bit suprized that I had to protest two yachts in th last two races. Both of these protests handed us the regatta win in our division's. I believe both of these yachts would have won these divisions if the had of completed penalty turns and continued racing. So that leads me to ask. At what point do you admit fault and do some penalty turns and try to make up the distance or risk being scrubbed completely at a protest hearing?

    I never said these guys didn't have pior training or skill some of my crew with out a regonised sssc, have over 50,000 miles at sea sailing on family yachts and sailing super yachts and are master 4 quilified, but according to YT that's not expirenced......

    Yes I do understand some of those points, however it is impossible to ask these crew members to give up 2 weekends and several hundred dollars at the last minute to do a safety course, also the course at the maritime the course at the maritime college may not be As yacht specific but it's pretty close. Also this course is held in conjunction with coxswain's, master 4/5 or deck officer courses. These courses also provide you with far greater detail on subjects as damage control, fire fighting ( a 2 day course by its self), weather forecasting, radio operators course and most of the other details you have mentioned. Now would rather have 6 crew and 50% with ya ssc and 1 with stcw95 ssc aswell, or have 8 crew with 3 with ya ssc and 4 with stcw95 ssc. Now I know which crew I would rather race with. Also with the prior learning acknowledgment it was indeed a total and utter muck around. Sorry if this seems like a rant but it really pissed me off all the back and forth comunication with the yacht club in the middle of exam period. ,

    I agree with you here. When I was putting a Maria island race crew together, I had 4 crew members who had completed the stw95 elements of ship board safety at Amc recently, and 3 who had the YA sea survival. Now the rule from the ryct is 50 % the crew must have the YA sea survival qualification. This rule effectively made me reduce my crew from 8 most with some sort of sea safety cert ( my raft limit) to 6 @ 50% YA sea survival. In my eyes this was fairly crap rule as I would rather have 8 crew over 6 as it would certainly limit crew fatigue and many other hazards. I doubt I will enter any more long races run by the ryct such as the Maria or Bruny, due to the need for the for the Ryct to exceed the category safety requirement set by YA. I know some people say how can you argue about safety. Well I don't think it's about safety anymore and it's about making money from the courses that are so conveniently run just before these longer races.

    Fairly crazy race today for us. Started with a nice 10 -12 kite run down to the pot, after dropping the kite the breeze built to over 30 knots ( wind gear is a tad sad atm). We then Proceeded harden up for the beat to Black Jack rocks to bust all the lugs on the mainsail end of race for us. Galapagos Duck Then Proceeded to Drop her mast in a gybe. Luckily No one was hurt. Hope they get her sorted out quickly and without to much grief from insurance.
