      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. Sydney 36 Moulds for Sale

    Silver Fox, There does seem to be something fishy going on with Syd 36 IRC Certs and probably every other boat depending on the whim of the RORC. I have just looked back at some old certs I have and can advise hull factor 9.5 in 2006 & 2008 and 9.7 in 2009?? Not sure how an existing designs hull factor moves 0.1 a year over 4 years???? Anyone from RORC like to explain if your reading .....

    Poods a few answers to your comparision questions, The TCC for Onya looks a bit out and more in line with the origional 36CR, there was a new 36CRX built two years back which is 1000kg lighter with a bunch of bucko mod's to it memory has its rating around 1.068 when launched. Equinox is parked in middle harbour somewhere with only limited racing under a new owner, origional owner now has a RP42. Eye Appeal racing out of Sydney 1.053 Philosophers is no longer a true 36 as the bow was changed to move the forestay further forward, plywood boom, sugar scoop and who knows what else has been done out of site. I also heard a rumor the hero might be moving into retirement with crew moving to a bigger boat

    Poodle56 your rating is still a bit high for the 36. I sailed on Aileron a few years back and won our div for southport and Hammo with a rating of 1.048. Sorro also won the IRC champs when he first got the boat and his rating was 1.053, ever since he has started modifying the boat and sails he has struggled to recapture that form. This was also evident when they brought out the 36CRX which was lighter with a few other mods but has never sailed to its rating either. Good boats especially when you can get a few of them lined up in a fleet. Good luck with your sailing.
