      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

    Looking after the front half of an F22R - the green one
  2. 2018 Australian Multihull Championships

    See you on the racetrack TA
  3. A Cat Worlds Sopot

  4. Does anyone know this boat?

    I sailed on Slick Willie for many years in Vic. Built by a couple of mates of mine - it took lots of time and heaps of rum, but the final result was stunning. PM me if you want their contact details.
  5. Australian F18 Nationals - Sydney Harbour

    Great job TA. Very well done
  6. Australian A Class Nationals

    Results show 24 boats in the President's Cup. NOR says President's Cup is for straight centreboards. Looks like I've fallen for the trap of believing everything I read on the internet.
  7. Australian A Class Nationals

    I'll take your interesting and raise it by the fact that around half the A Class entries have straight boards. Not sure of the breakdown between C-boarders & full foilers. At the risk of inciting a riot, could this not make the Taipan a more attractive proposition for the aforementioned "weekend warrior"? Granted, its not as 'nice' as an A Class, but its closer than anything else available. Cheaper too. Could the trickle of A Class defectors become a tide? Rumour has it that no less a figure than Dougy the Gun has kicked a few Taipan tyres since the tragic sinking of his trusty NS14 (no loss of life, but apparently Dougy's SA password went down with the ship).
