      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. RORC TransAtlantic Race

    Congrats to Ludde. While the fleet wasn't strong, an Atlantic Race win is still a good effort. He has been doing this longer than most, and certainly at a commercial level. Possibly only Neville C has done more, but he has bounced inshore / offshore during that time.
  2. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Ran Tan ll an Elliott 50 canter from NZ is normally about the same as a Cookson 50 on line. IRC - well that is a different story!
  3. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Add it to the list. NZ endorsed IRC certificates allow sailmaker measurements. Australian ones don't.
  4. tp 52 crop 2018

    Sled is NZ. Shame Mick hasn't made any stick. The exchange rate movement came too late.
  5. Juno built by the late great Rene D'Ouden here in NZ.
  6. Don't forget to claim back the NZ 15% GST when exporting it.
  7. Kaimai Flyer in NZ is good value for a Y11, especially with the exchange rate at .9. Lyons keel, prod, good sail wardrobe, and a near new motor. All for NZD92k. And Andy (the vendor) is a good bloke. Look on Trade Me (The NZ Gumtree)

    I thought YDL did the rebuild after the capsize.
  9. NZ Coastal Classic 2017

    Will be interesting to hear whether it was experience or boat that was the reason. Simon will be happy (and Jimmy won something this year!). Charleston having another blinder - they do every year. This is a modified F28 for those watching. Those guys are awesome!
  10. The West Coast of USA is no longer the last bastion of large Multis sailing for fun. While Sean Langman came and played in NZ for one Coastal, The Beau Geste team has arrived in town with the new boat. I understand it was a Phaedo? And Spithill is on the Orma (ex Vodafone Sailing). Plus there are a heap of other multis for the 120 mile dash up the coast
  11. Yes - the 60 was all locked up / closed up when I was at the Auckland Show Sunday am. Time restrictions prevented a return visit. Looks great!
  12. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    I saw Rags 90 on my way to Cockatoo Island on Monday. Definitely in laid up mode. Clean but forlorn. I'd forgotten how small it looks vs the aircraft carriers.Also lots of work going on around CYCA docks yesterday on several of the racier boats. Terra Firma is rebadged as About Time Hollywood / Doll looks very tired. Is she being brought out for the big race after the 38 sojourn?

    Related topic. Supergroove is for sale in the UK. The current owner gave it a huge birthday. With the ongoing changes to IRC, it should be quite competitive. Over 20 years old but still current. I must find out what he is doing next.
  14. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    I'm assuming it is Faze who has had this built. Give the man his due, he has kept many a boatbuilder and sailmaker going when he goes off on another tangent. If anyone tracked his boats it would have most people's bucket list yachts on it.
