      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.

Congrats to Ross MacDonald and the crew of CAN10, 'Gallant', for winning the 18 boat 'classics' division of the European Champiosnhips for the Six metre class. Second place went to US83, 'Llanoria', from Port Madison, Washington. Every photo I look at from this and the other 6mR events makes me want to get out and go sailing. It's awesome to see SA giving them some love on the front page!

Just came across a photo of our boat back in the day, circa 1967 (the last year we had her).

 

Junge was a Danish pre-war 6. The story was that the lead was removed during the war and cast iron went on in its place. Dad bought sails from Rolly Tasker that were handicap-oriented (as there was no 6 class in Belleville).

 

Last we heard of her was that she was in very poor condition at Woodwind Yachts.

 

Cheers

If 6mR are awesome, you should get in a 2.4mR...............No Crew required and a set of sails is only 1K....and they'll last longer than most others you buy.

There's a small 2.4 fleet here in Ottawa -- Ablesail uses Martins and 2.4s. Always wanted to try one!
