      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.

  3. Sydney to Hobart 2016

  4. 2015 Sydney to Hobart

    Thank God or someone that Balance won! For a boat to win this race that was built for regatta racing [yes it has been beefed up] as opposed to others she beat that are built for ocean racing is well deserved. QA winning would have put yacht racing back 30 years plus!. Please also note QA's hull is lighter than a standard boat, the cabin/deck is not a S&S mould, it is lighter and shorter. The rig is also non standard
  5. 2015 Sydney to Hobart

  7. dickhead? illiterate fuck? and in the post you removed you suggest punching someone's lights out, those responses reflect that some people in this bay are very sensitive about the "incident" and when in doubt they attack other people's opinions that they don't agree with. My comments are nothing to do with Blackjack or any other competitor. I sleep well at night, I play by the rules. You posted that you are going to STFU so please do
  8. So Abbo why did you bring it up? lots of people who FINISHED the race found out about it after Alive was declared the winner on IRC, yes they won the race and accepted the trophy! From your comments I gather that you think it is ok to break a rule if no one protests? A few of you including a couple of brothers, one of which was escorted out of a Hobart pub seem very sensitive about the issue, there are a number of people who know about it wont ever consider sailing on that boat and to the best of my knowledge neither the REAL owner or the second IRC boat owner to this day don't know about it.
  9. Agree x 100 ..."Alive" probably the standout effort in the entire fleet for punching above its weight......results would have been interesting for them if there had been no park up and compression. Anyone hear a call for water ?
  10. So what news of Syd's new ride?

    can anyone confirm that the boat builders are back on board?
  11. So what news of Syd's new ride?

    Didn't the qualifier have to be completed by the 12th? Hmmm
  12. Why did Comanche doing 12knots then do a right angle left turn, slow to 5.4k then now heading towards the harbour at only 9k?
  13. So what news of Syd's new ride?
