      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. SuperFoiler Grand Prix

    To be fair, I don't know you, but I do know that you are pig ignorant regarding 'GP sailing'. Success can be defined in many ways but having sailing as the entertainment in breaks in the Test cricket was probably the 2nd best sailing media success in AUS, ever! The reason GPS didn't last forever was, IIRC, that Bill got sick of the constant attack he was under from the sailing 'elite'. Additionally I can't see talent like Ashby & Co signing up for a boring experience. Tall poppy is what's springing to my mind.
  2. Bogan of the week FP - Trimaran

    The bottom right corner.. If the engine (diesel?) control lines and lever are facing athwartship (?) its probably a good idea to have it all marked out so clearly. Just needs a Delorme and he is good to go.. I don't like the feel of this one at all
  3. 2017 Rules Rule 69

    That 59 page decision has been taken down, and I for one would like to be able to read it. Did anyone download it? I understand that there is a decision in the offing and I have to say that Paul Coady and his daughter Steph will get a better deal in the Federal Court they ever would, or did, from the people who are in charge of our sport. Its about time some of the dills running (down) this sport found out about human rights ie Human rights tops silly little local rules. But with participation at all time lows I guess they are not really interested.

    Stop the thread Tom? No way. I still hold hopes of BJ running into Rimas and delivering him to you as buttery ashes
  8. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Well played that man! Not often you would see Tommy E upstaged by someone else on the guitar.

    The suspense is killing me!

  11. Race Replays

    Have you noticed that when they sail 'nose down' the wing leading edge is almost plumb vertical? Edit Ooops wrong thread, Apologies and many many thanks Rudder NZL
  12. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    That has to be the best laugh I have had on this thread. New around here?
  13. Most Valuable Anarchist

    All of the above And the guy in San Francisco (sorry mate couldn't remember your name) who filmed Oracles capsize during AC34. Doing what Jason and Rudder are doing right now. Making stuff available to all the round pegs who dont fit Wussels square peg view of who is allowed to watch this latest spectacle. King Ineptune was/is pretty good value for a laugh. Not that he actually contributed anything.

    FIFY. Keep up ffs. He has been an admiral for some time.
  15. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Why bother. He needs no help to go drifting. After the first hour, and after cutting the rig free... Dammit now I'm doing what you did. Rimas can NOT do anything. He is a Guiness Book of World Records champion of doing NOTHING! Just sit back and wait for the action to start again. Found Poetry and beautiful picture patterns from his exploits. What more could you ask for?
