      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. Race Replays

    Guys. Given that this is the thread you go to to watch a replay, can we keep any hints of the results off the thread?? Thanks to Rudder and everyone pulling together to allow us to watch this!
  2. Live Racing Thread

    Agreed. If that morning the foil manager came to you and said "We have a high lift foil that will be slow over 40 knots on the first reach, match them for VMG downwind, and have much better VMG upwind, oh and better tacks and gybes with more lift - do you want it or something else " "Hmm, about 45 seconds for one reach, 2 minutes downwind x number of legs, 4 minutes upwind x number of legs -I'll take it!" The fact that you spend a lot more time going upwind means whoever is optimised for upwind speed will win most of the time. As Boybland says, if you start overspeeding your board downwind, you just bear away. The only time this isn't an option is the short reach leg at the start. Just follow them around, arrange a split at the bottom mark, and sail past upwind.

  5. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    G'day Melbourne brethen. I'm shocked seeing a brand new boat without a bulb. Obviously for rating but would you want to sacrifce everything thats great about sailing modern, stiff and powerful boats for the ratings benefit. Sort of makes you wonder why sail at all if you were more interested in winning in the IRC chook raffle on a brand new dog, or trying to win (or at least having a blast) on a faster boat. Horses for courses I guess. Not a flame on the owner, just an observation. Sports car I know you know what I'm on about.
  6. Joke

    Hey on the topic of contagious laughter. Has anyone heard that guy from 'Jack in the Box' describe a car accident whilst pissing himself laughing because 3 little old ladies beat the other guy up? It used to be posted on that 'other' site. I'll have to find a link....

  8. Joke

    You've just reminded me. I know someone who is constantly finishing off my comments with the stupid line "... as the actor said to the bishop" followed by chortling that makes me want to strangle him. Where does this stupid line come from? I suspect its one of those 70's british comedy shows which everyone fondly remembers how good they were but actually they were just sexist shite.
  9. Joke

    I've heard that joke many times before. I think its already posted in here somewhere as well. But I just can't help laughing at it. Its perpetually funny.
