      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. 2018 Australian Multihull Championships

    First things first. Sandringham YC did an exceptional job of running this regatta, both on and off the water. They could not have been any more welcoming to the multis, which was pleasant change. Geelong, take note. One thing no club can control is the sea state, and the infamous Port Phillip chop nobbled the little boats a bit. After having my insides turned upside down and sideways on the front of the green boat, the crew of Peccadilo pronounced "Waves? What waves?" The green boat also had to contend with a mainsail blowout during race 2 and was forced to finish that race (and all of race 3) with a reef in the main. Thanks to Lisa at Quantum for spending her Saturday night at the loft. The Experiment put on a bit of a show for everyone by tipping over on the final day, but all was well and they will be on the start line for the passage race from Melbourne to Geelong this Friday. No electronics is a winner! Having said all that, the big boats sailed a fine regatta and were definitely on the pace - even around the cans. I'm sure we'll all be there with bells on next time, chop or no chop.
