      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.

SSE...spinnaker start. Grab the good lens.

We'll be on the start line taking piccies, yell if anybody wants their particular boat captured for posterity.

 

Good luck all, looks like a perfect day.

Sorry Auscat, will have a look, but I was on the wrong side for most of the multis, they started closer inshore. Banque Pop is just a freak, blew by the fleet and then really lit up on a reach.

 

Good to see.

Minor thread hi-jack.

 

I have discovered in good nick a foot high pile of 80's and 90's yotting mags, mostly Australian Sailing.

Am detonating the place and about to chuck them, but thought I should offer locally first. They are for free, but be pick up only and during Easter break.

Too much on my plate to deal with storage or posting.

 

Back to the 'not-left-on-the-bar' race-tracker.

 

I guess no one is interested.

 

Now, back to the progress of the Brisbone to Gladbane Race...for which we all await updates.

Amazing - Team Australia is passed the half way point before 1900hrs

 

 

So at 1400 it is well behind the three canters and still just past M8 heading to Spitfire with breeze under 10 knots

 

So about 18 miles in first three hours

 

Half way is 155 miles roughly

 

So you say five hours to go the other 140 miles and the first 40 of this is not straight line and the breeze is not fresh

 

BTW we steamed pass the boats yesterday and have anchored at the northern end of Moreton all night. Currently 15 from SSW and has been all night

Not sure if you were looking at the correct boat, I saw TA passing M8 just after midday? Anyway TA Finished at 0338 this morning - thats an elapsed time of 16 hours and 28 minutes

 

This from the web site at about 1pm yesterday:

 

Sean Langman’s fast lane sailing trimaran Team Australia predictably left her rivals in her wake when they power sailed to a commanding lead in the Multihull class Brisbane to Gladstone race this afternoon.The exceptionally fast triple-hull yacht covered the initial 20 nautical miles of the 308 nautical mile race in 55 minutes to lay down a claim to break the 18 hour 55 minute 9 second race record before dawn tomorrow. Her owner skipper Sean Langman is no stranger to racing on this tactically demanding course having set two of the three fastest times with his similarly exciting open 60 class mono sloop AAPT Grundig.

 

After 1 hour of racing Team Australia had extended her lead as she tracked a fast course to enter the North West shipping channel. Race officials predicted that Team Australia will clear the Caloundra Fairway Buoy before 3 pm then continue to produce her impressive performance when she sails into stronger wind blowing on the open ocean.

 

Th three big canters have yet to round Lady Elliot

Team Australia, they did about 3 and half hours ago. But yes I did note that you said the QCYC B2G. And I will bet blackjack. The tracking system for the monos seems to be playing up, Positions on the chart seem about right but the reults show that Audi is already finished? and a few other anomalies like predicted finish times of 31 days etc.

 

But otherwise the physical locations of the canters is close and has been for the race, with shogun about 2- 3 hours behind. Good effort by shogun I thought to gap the next few boats.

See johnny, over here we all just like boats. Irrespective of hull number or length or cost. Or the fact that some are motor sailers. There all great to watch and interesting to follow.

Oh, Johnny "Embittered" Saint - the reality is that a near decade old ex-French ORMA trimaran just stomped, embarrassed, the canter fleet - but you still live in weird denial.

Two seperate races dickhead. One with 8 boats - one with about 47.

 

edit.... take your little wankfest back to your multihull thread where you can stroke each others ego - all those who DIDN'T do the race.

as much as i like the multi hulls you should get some facts right before bagging the monos

lahana was built in 2003 and is a non canter

wildthing was also built in 2003 and blackjack was 2006 all 3 of these boats are now getting on

no one is bagging the impressive speed of shauns boat but you just cant compare the two different styles of boats

Acording to the results I could find this morning Mondo was in 3rd and Guilty way behind on the results, why does guilty give mondo such an amount of time if they are both Sydney 38's?

By my calculations Guilty was about 1 hour ahead.

Scottmax l would not put much into the tracker positions half the time it is not calculating all the boats speed and distance to go right and therefore all the places are all over the place

I cant get thetracker to work at all, and it looks like a bit of a glass out so there may be some boats spending a lot of time in the paddock.

If you use the link on the earlier page of this thread it seems to still take you through to the tracker.

Yeah it is a bit doggy but it is better than carrier pigeons and the telegraph.

 

Looks like a nice ESE blowing out at Lady Elliot pushing the smaller boats into a nice car park off Gladstone where they have a 8knt E It will be interesting to see if those above or the majority below the rum line do well out of the situation.

The Web site crashing & the the tracker were the worst yet. With the IT available now there is no excuse. If I was a sponsor I would not be happy.

Who were the race sponsors? Can't remember, couldn't get on the web site. And as for letting the competitors fitting the trackers? NO

So, now we know why the Aussies can't set up their own SA website and have to bore everyone else with all that foreigner crap.

Blah Blah Blah crap Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah crap.

 

Who gives a fuck about what you have to say about race websites or anything. We all had a great race north and a big drink with lots of laughs and bullshit at the end. But the best part was you weren't there, instead sitting here going Blah Blah blah crap, blah blah blah.

 

BTW, great picture of the Adams 10, I hear they did pretty well. (I don't remember much from the presentation)

Nice pic of one dork giving pickle dish to another dork. Must be the annual Brisstone to Gladbane Race. Be sure to keep everyone up to date. How about posting the results and next year's schedule?
