      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. Keep up kid, I was kind enough to let you know about Croaky eight days ago. The youth of today, sigh...

  3. WASPcam Beat the crap outta them, still work.
  4. http://www.mysailing.com.au/offshore/how-perpetual-loyal-won-the-rolex-sydney-hobart
  5. I reckon all the brains involved in this project just might have thought about that and little more besides. http://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/s480x480/e35/15046849_330365470679397_5908979150722433024_n.jpg?ig_cache_key=MTM5MTM4MTEzOTQ2NTMxOTMxMA%3D%3D.2 "CQS after the start of the Royal Akarana Yacht Club White Island Race. For this Qualifying Race she sailed without the DSS foils which protrude horizontally from her topside and provide lift, reducing hull drag and producing more righting moment. Her movement through the water was very clean, as would be expected of a supermaxi of her size in a flat sea state. The aero-foiled rig supports were occasionally clipping a wave. But the aero-foiling meant that only fine spray was being thrown, and contact with waves when heeled was surprisingly rare - and usually rectified by the helmsman luffing closer to the wind. She is sailing this race using her canting keel only, and daggerboard. With the DSS foils fitting they are expected to generate lift as CQS heels and this should minimise wave strike on the wing supports." http://www.imgrum.net/tag/cqsmaxi
  6. So when would the new multi class start? Maybe just before the double-handed class...
  7. Click on the listing and you'll see the owner!
  8. But it also used to be AAPT, Sean Langman's?
  9. Sail number, AUS11111, is YuuZoo's.
  10. Nice article... "Sailing with the old man" http://www.mysailing.com.au/opinion/sailing-with-the-old-man
  11. Engine was replaced
  12. Here we go again... Ask the organiser how his around Australia record attempt on Brindabella went. Good to dream, but reality is a bitch.
  13. "RAGAMUFFIN 100 SOLD Sydney-siders may have noticed Ragamuffin 100 quietly slipping out of her berth at Sydney City Marine last week.... The boat that carried Syd Fischer on his final trip to Hobart before his retirement in 2016 has been sold to a mystery owner from Hong Kong. Make sure you follow Scallywag to get the low down on the new program. We hope the new owner enjoys the boat as much as we did!"
