      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 heard that the Melges 32, ex Envy Scooters, is heading south to an RYCV owner soon. That should make for an interesting spectacle as they come to grips with taming that beast in a breeze. Should be a good battle with the new T980 flat top version.MC 31s are still in build so remain an unknown quantity - they might look ok on paper but I will reserve any judgement until we see them sailing. Bigger sister MC 38 (Ginger) crew suffered a severe drenching with such low freeboard in a Port Phillip chop and they, and all her sisters, have been conspicuously absent from Port Phillip since Ginger's one brief visit a couple of years ago. This place just ain't Sydney HarbourAny sign of the modified F40OD from Rob Hick & Co? We will be poking around from time to time as well. We are planning to be at the Lipton and obviously Geelong.
  2. Yeah you are probably right re the sheet size. Thanks for your feedback.
  3. Yeah I was looking for diamond cut in large sheets. Best I can find is the hudroturf stuff but the sheets are only 1x1.5m
  4. Any body had any luck trying to find a product similar to hydroturf of raptor in Australia? Looking for some large sheets. Hyrdoturf won't ship their large sheets internationally and the dude at Raptor has been F'ing unless, i.e. no interest in shipping either.

    If you wanted to get the ball rolling I would have division carved out from within the AMS Fleet at Geelong and Lipton Cup. They are already running AMS divisions and the Super 11's can simply apply to have their results pulled out for some divisional results. It would make the racing much more interesting as you know you are actually racing for glory amongst like boats. This was done successfully in ASBA where there was enough boats of a single class (5) to warrant running a separate sheet in topyacht. Its super simple and most of the potential association members are likely to be fronting up to these regattas anyway. Those that are not might change there mind if something like this is on the agenda. Who is running the show. Matt K you seem to be all over it. We did look into Geelong but we were a bit to late to get on the ticket. the lipton cup is a maybe. Tony Cuschieri and jeremy larkin and the two ring leaders of the super 11.It's never too late to get a set of results stripped out of an exisiting division. That's all you need to do. You don't need a seperate do division. I can see if I can organise it if you like. we will both be in Geelong tomorrow. give me a call anytime 0411059183 JeremyCool, I'll be at the club working on the 920. Come say hello.

    Is that a good or bad thing?
  9. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    Just going from what I read on FB..."Super 11 Sailing Association is dedicated to promote racing between high performance AMS Rated keel boats with fixed or retractable bow sprits".... last time i checked A10's and Sydney 38's didn't fit that description. Just sayin....

    Last I checked the A10 doesn't run assos.... Anything other than all asso boats won't work imho...
  11. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    T920...... And it will work as long as the type forms are all the same and it is kept to assy boats only. That's my learnings from ASBA and SMS anyway.

    I cant believe I missed this. My dad passed the week before. I only heard the news today. I got to know Bruce after buying his T8. He was always up for a chat and was never too busy to give me advice on how to sail the boat. He was a great bloke. A sad loss.
