      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. Origami Boat Thread

    I don't think this thread shows any of its participants in a good light.
  2. Random meet Irony.
  3. Win, Defend, Lose

    Didn't do the trick in '87?
  4. Cup rules NZ (bit of a laugh)

    That would be actually more interesting.
  5. I had a dream. Advance Australia Fair

    It will never happen. Aussi competitive sailors are far more interested in sniping at each other than team building. Exhibit A, the '87 defense, there were more potential defenders than fucking challengers. After 100 years of the defender holding the trump cards we attacked each other like starving wolverines. The only country in history never to hold the cup for one cycle.
  6. Origami Boat Thread

    Just popped in for old times sake. Nice to see it's still all about sailing and not just swing ones dick about.
  7. God, nothing's changed, lol. Just popped in to get some insight after a hiatus, wondering what the future might hold. Is there anything official from TNZ?
  8. CATARI comes along at Pacific Seacraft

    and still no photos

    Jebus, Rags is heading for Lygon St as well. COG 292?
  11. 2015 Sydney to Hobart

    I think tailenders often park up in the bay for that and more. Halvorsens on Saga in '46, 12 hours according to Google.

    Whats the longest anyone has parked in the bay? I seem to recall about 8 hours a long way back.
