      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. Might want to try a different one this year Ted just saying like.....
  2. try reading back up the thread a bit....tp52's
  3. Not a tp... Farr 53
  4. Jones designed?!
  5. it was very nipply, all the way from the heads to apollo bay without so much as a tack was alright though....at least for those who didnt head off seawards.....
  6. Georgia was first in short race....but kept going for longer race.....absolute drifter at the end
  7. many heading out for the tam oshanter? good excuse to get up on the piss early on saturday!
  8. who was out there with the camera this weekend?
  9. cost some alot of time, lots of handbrake turns being made by the first few, too much fun being had on the reach! anything likely to come of the cougar/big ship close call?
  10. Good weekends racing, yesteday was a blast! But why in the name of god would you have an all in start on sunday? its suicide to have 50 footers heading for the same line as 25 footers, they're simply to slow to be able to get out of the way, no matter how much they want to, the start yesterday was dangerous, lucky there was no boat damage heres some pictures from the 1st and 2nd range races from Steb Fisher.... scroll down to the bottom of the page for this years - Steb Fisher Photography
  11. northerly tending southwest - best of luck to the PRO's! that and showers on saturday might remove some of the fun
  12. they have to struggle with that many fleets out in a small space of water to set courses, not helped at all by a wind that clocked 30-40deg left up the 1st and 2nd beat. options were to move it, or leave the mark - either way going to get some flack! thought they did well in tough conditions, OCS call was a fuck up, but they happen looking forward to the lipton this weekend, good oppertunity to get a series of races in against the rest of the fleet, one a week isnt enough! everyone going?
  13. yeah for sure - just thought that its not binding on the rc, similar to sound signals/flags situation - interested to see what happens
  14. no sail numbers called - only called boat names Havent a copy of SI's to hand but isnt vhf radio call a courtesy call normally? ie it cant be relied upon to call all/any....
