      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. Admiral Don Buckley
  2. Will take photo on the weekend. We think from spin pole.
  3. Hi has anyone had experince with fixing a split foil it is approx 100mm long on the outer foil.the slit is on the STB side off the port foil.
  4. Didn't the Oats finish without a mainsail that year.
  5. The Oats XI wasnt planning on the pittwater race but that may change there is still a fair bit to do with a new pin and inspections. https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjqqv2ai5TRAhVLJ5QKHWrvDywQFggsMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.anmm.gov.au%2Fwhats-on%2Fvessels%2Fwild-oats-x1&usg=AFQjCNHZTxfCn-aQsxR2RICa16k-6apKEg&sig2=S4ey5XCMLD5rIs0mL88lVQ
  6. Real AIS shows alive doing 21kts 2 min ago
  7. looks like a gybe back to miss the adverse current
  8. Going through the peak of the forecast wind now.. They will all be in the current transition zone in an hour, interesting to see if anyone gybes, or they think the line they are on is the answer to the light stuff in the straight.... Loyal gybed, look slow. I don't think thats a gybe, 20 degree heading change? looks like a gybe
  9. Hasn't started yet should start in a couple minutes
  10. That is some serious sail area. What is the wind range of that thing? Can't be much, but it sure must be nice to have it when you need it. As you can see in the pic, that's their upper wind limit. Once there are white caps it's straight to the dock... Didnt it do the SYD-HBT last year and from memory i think there was more than just White caps
  11. have you seen where the stern is hanging around.
  12. Could there be any cavitation with the folding prop.I know our annodes on our folding prop seams to show signs olelectrolisis but think it could be cavitation.
  13. Rambler apparently going to Adelaide.!
  14. front hole dagerboard back DSS nothing new just a tweak on the DSS angle
