      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. 2017 Garda Moth worlds

    Maybe Blair is controlling it from the beach riding a bike. Does Pete's new boat have a wand? SW
  2. 2017 Garda Moth worlds

    Exactly. The AC sailors being in Bermuda was one of their selling points for holding the regatta there. My comment was tongue in cheek. SW

    Bermuda. Not sure the dates, but apparently all the AC sailors are going to be there for it because they live in Bermuda...

    Perth 2019 - ready to buck the trend.
  5. 2016 moth worlds: Hayama

    With so much development going on that pushes the limits of the class coming from professionals (ie salaried sailors, sailmakers, boat builders etc), it could be possible that the main office bearers of the class being volunteers is leading to a situation where the inmates rule the asylum as there is just not enough time for the volunteers to stay ahead of the game. The "hard arsed bastard" that appears to be part of the solution is a big commitment to take on, especially if they have to pay to travel to across the globe every 12-18 months to the worlds regatta, and then compromise their own regatta (assuming at this point they can afford the time to train) arguing with people about their sail numbers because they didn't read the SI's and ISAF guide. its an interesting issue, and I'm sure its not isolated to the Moth Class.

    Yeah, they add a bit of "texture" to the water, you get the odd bump every now and then, but otherwise no real drama. Much less of an inconvenience than seaweed. After righting the boat, sometimes you'll have a few jellyfish jump on the tramps for a ride, but they soon slip off. SW

BTW, free camping at the club, OR, discounted apartment / houses available locally if you don't want to sleep rough. More details on facebook. If you have any questions or comments, drop them in here and I'll respond ASAP. Cheers SW

    We released our event logo last night. IMCA-WA are proud to release the event logo for the 2016 Australian National Championships for the International Moth Class. The Moth fleet are invited to return to the birth place of the Foiling Moth on the Swan River and enjoy the consistently fresh Fremantle Doctor seabreeze. South of Perth Yacht Club located in Applecross on the Swan River is proud to host this prestigious event. All Mothies are invited to come and join us for what will be an awesome event. More announcements are to come soon regarding exciting sponsors, logistics to get here, notice of race and more. Cheers SW

    I think it is still early days, if you are a member of IMCA in Qld, NSW, Vic or Tas you will probably get an e-mail from your national rep soon. If you don't, give them a poke and ask what's their plan is. Subsidised travel was voted in at Sorrento, however I think the mechanism stil has to be sorted out. Cheers SW
