      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.

    DNC increases as the series progresses ??? not per the notice of race , sailing instructions nor the blue book

    RRS 51 MOVABLE BALLAST All movable ballast, including sails that are not set, shall be properly stowed. Water, dead weight or ballast shall not be moved for the purpose of changing trim or stability. Floorboards, bulkheads, doors, stairs and water tanks shall be left in place and all cabin fixtures kept on board. However, bilge water may be bailed out. So what RRS is being broken???

    So where do I find the ORCV additional safety requirements referenced in the NOR
  7. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    The club marine is a series that has yachting Victoria as the organising authority. So not club racing You mention a upper wind limit, who made the limit and where is it documented.

    Is there any correlation between paid and volunteer ROs and when they cancel?
  9. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    been that way for some time now So where are they going??
  10. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    Bit of drama in the bay Serious Yahoo hit and sunk, still in the water off St Kilda with a buoy marking position. Everyone OK

    Posting a change to the sailing instructions in the middle of a news item does not comply. There is no requirement for a protest to correct the scoring - RRS 90.3 c - When the race committee determines from its own records or observations that it has scored a boat incorrectly, it shall correct the error and make the corrected scores available to competitors.

    Time limit for the ORCV Winter series has been amended according to bar talk - but cannot find details on the website - how can this be done after the race has been conducted?
  13. Melbourne Big Boat Fleet

    Yes - 2 hours drop dead time. RRS 35 has been amended by the SIs - RRS 35 if not amended allows one boat to finish in the time limit and all others to be scored. All that effort for no result.

    Shame about the time limit for the 2nd Race of ORCV - results have not scored boats DNF "On a day where two or more races are scheduled, the time limit for each laid course race shall be 2 hours after the start of the last class in each race, after which time boats not finished shall be scored ‘Did Not Finish’ (DNF). This changes RRS 35."
