      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.

  12. Ragamuffin 100 is the last Australian hope to take out line honours but it isnt looking too good for Syd Fisher's 100 footer. We spoke to sailing master Dave Witt and he explained that they have had their fair share of problems. We broke the port daggerboard off and are currently sitting in a hole, Witt told the media over satellite phone. The daggerboard is gone, snapped off. When asked how this affected their performance he said they cant sail without it so are using the other one on both sides. We pulled the starboard daggerboard out, drilled a hole, turned it around and drop it in the other side, upside down, he explained. The damage happened when they were sitting just 8nm behind Comanche after dropping off a wave. Ragamuffin 100 is currently sitting in a hole with about 167nm to the finish. When asked about the weather he said, Not too bad, been on the nose since I can remember. But they are in zero wind. (We are) expecting a westerly and will make our way through a cloud line so should get out of it," Witt said. Certainly cant give up hope." If we can some how manage to get there we are quite quick in the light, he explained of their hopes to catch the leaders. Syd Fisher is doing well on board and was bunking down during the rough conditions earlier in the race. - Kimberley Wilmot/ Editor Australian Sailing Read more at http://www.mysailing.com.au/latest/ragamuffin-stuck-in-a-hole-after-losing-a-daggerboard#3LzuUXTyDf2RB8gq.99
