      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.

    I'm not a supporter of the event, but lets be truthfull , there were 16 multihulls at the event, 5 in Div 1, 11 in Div 2. I just saw the results. https://syc.com.au/raceresults/2018/ayc/multi/series.htm
  2. Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    Yep! what Claire said^^^^. Move somewhere warm.
  3. Ditching Your Rig At Sea (from PD)

    why not retrieve it? plenty of rope and winches there.
  4. Small tri beams

    What about an internal sleeve at the loaded point?, to spread the load along the beam outboard of the socket, what do the engineers here have to say on this,? just my laymans, "seat of the pants" thought.
  5. Heaven Can Wait charity race 2018

    EVIL YOU HAVE YOUR DATES WRONG 24th 25th FEBRUARY 2018. I got this a couple of weeks ago. HEAVEN CAN WAIT 2018 SUPPORTING THE HUNTER BRANCH OF CANCER COUNCIL NSW AND MARINE RESCUE LAKE MACQUARIE ONLY 8 WEEKS TO GO – FEBRUARY 24-25, 2018 - HAVE YOU GOT YOUR ENTRY IN YET? Hi all previous Heaven Can Wait Charity Sailing Regatta participants. Yes I know – you are probably only just getting over the Christmas headaches and still have New Year to come, but this won’t take long. Simply go to the 2018 Heaven Can Wait Race Entry web site page and get your boat entered in this unique regatta. Be sure to read the Race Entry Information before completing your entry and please take the option to create an Everydayhero site so that you can start raising money in support of the Hunter Branch of Cancer Council NSW and their Home Help Program. Get the message out to your friend, family and business networks and ask them to support you with your fundraising efforts. Oh, and a reminder that the more money you raise, the better your handicap will be in the Long One Lap Fundraising Dash – it’s just a simple matter of bribing the handicapper – the more full the brown paper bag, the better the handicap!!!. More information is available on the final Notice Of Race. So, decide which races you are going to enter – challenge yourself by doing the 12 and / or 24 Hour races – there is nothing lake sailing on the lake at night time where it is relatively safe and the shore and support are close at hand. Now is the time to get your boat and crew organised. Once again, The HCW Regatta will be a part of Lakefest – a celebration of aquatic activity on Lake Macquarie from Saturday February 17 through Sunday March 4 and details of the Lakefest events are on the Lakefest website – www.lakefest.com.au. There will be lots of activity on the Lake, so why not come up early and participate in some of the other events planned for Lakefest Week. So, free up your time for this great event – whether it be the Short One Lap Dash, a quick dash around the whole lake with the Long One Lap Dash and the Long One Lap Fundraising Dash, the Challenge of the 12 Hour race or the Endurance event - the 24 Hour Race. Arrive early, explore the many anchorages of the lake and participate in some of the other Lakefest events. We look forward to seeing you on the weekend of February 24-25, 2018. PS, I expect to have more news in the next bulletin about the Pre-Regatta Charity Fundraising Dinner www.rmyctoronto.com.au/heaven-can-wait Regards Melvyn (Mel) Steiner Vice Commodore - RMYC Toronto PO Box 599, TORONTO NSW 2283 AUSTRALIA P (02) 4959 3540 (M) 0417409172

  9. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    If he had integrity he would have taken the penalty turns,or retired. Time penalty is garbage, Fail to give way when on port,should be DSQ. no question.

  13. Ian Farrier

    A true genius, a sad day, all Farrier owners have lost a friend, even if we'd never met him. RIP Ian. I dedicate my next "screaming reach" to him.
