      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.

I have a long term plan of sailing my tiger at both. I just need work to pick up and the family to give me the time away. I spoke to Harry AUS 46 and he is keen but a big ask from WA.

Would love to bring Balmain Tiger up one year to play with you. We have done it in a Blazer 23 and Spider 22 and had a ball, Tiger would be well suited, Tav and his crew had a great time in 2010, will not happen this year due to travel , next year we plan to bring a Sydney 39 up , hope I get a gig, so 2013 at earliest. Very difficult to justify the cost of the road trip from Sydney when we can race with half a dozen Tigers in Sydney most weekends.

We would really love to have you guys come South to sail One Design amongst a Tiger fleet in Widward Lewards. How about first weekend in March in Sydney 2012. Strobe, why not join us , make it a date.

Unfortunetly your titles work out to close to our state caravan show. I ham even having to give up race week for 2012 as it is just to much time away.

One day I will get it worked out.

just as a bit of info for those considering these events it this year there are 3 possibly 4 mumm 30's going to be at airly and the melgeas 32 are doing a one design thing at hammo. For next year there is a lot of interest from the qld mumm 30 fleet (up to 7-8 boats) to do a seiries that will include one of these regattas but which one has not been finalised yet

For all those thinking Airlie or Hammo this year don't forget Magnetic Island Race Week a couple of weeks later, a bit further north, nice and laid back, perfect way to round off the comp year.

There should be 2 Soto 30's at Airlie and Hammo.

 

Interesting to see how they go against the FT’s and Farr 30's.

there isn't even a 30s division this year

 

bit of a shame (FU actually) but not surprising after the internet debacle after last years inaugural event ... by non-entrants in the division,

 

maybe these spectators should save their Qld welcomes for the nsw RL team, not their competitors down south who fork out and done so much to establish interstate 30s racing

 

 

and to think that southerners might hitch up and outlay to go to MIRW ! dreaming.

 

-----------------------------------------------

 

where are these Sotos? they are not racing down here ?

dats what I said !

 

in no small part due to -what i said above

 

now compare that to the other entries, 13 already in one class,that has to be a record at this early stage of the game, might be a bumper year for SBs ?

 

one way to get around the local hostility would be to get 6 FTs and go OD, this would negate the seemingly inevitable local vs. visitor S30 bullshit

Not sure if you are refering to handicaps but Super 30 is on AMS which is a measurement system so there can be no local bias (perceived or fact). It would be great to see a FT fleet at Airlie.

What local hostility?

 

There are no super 30s up here and nobody with a dog in that fight.

 

Whats your problem???????

 

Lot of shit flying last year Chippie. Totally unjustified and unproven but probably enough to keep several southern boats away, and particularly from MIRW..
