      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.

Crew wanted for Sydney RANSA Wednesday Afternoon Race

Recommended Posts

Late notice for most I'm sure but we need extra crew for Shere Khan on Wednesday 16th in the non-spinnaker RANSA Wednesday afternoon race series.

 

Boat leaves RANSA dock at 1.pm for 1.40pm start.

 

Shere Khan is the leading Flying Tiger (1st scratch, 2nd handicap series). New sails 3 weeks ago. Bring your own beer!

 

though there's a bit of a blow forecast for tomorrow.

Well after all that the promised 25-30 knots never materialised and we ended up in a 7-12 knot variable northerly breeze with the old main full of holes and new jib (changed just before the start).

 

After a rubbish start we were first to the windward mark and gradually got clear of the fleet on the downwind leg - but not enough to avoid coming 6th on handicap, despite being first over the line even - beating Quest from the bigger class 1S boats.

Still short of crew for the race on 14th September.

 

We are now 3rd overall just 2 points behind the leader.
