      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.

RANSA Sydney NOR Twilight released new Sport Boat division

Recommended Posts

RANSA today released Notice of Race for Twilight season commencing 2 November until 22 March. A feature is a new Sport Boat Division 1S which will start 5 minutes behind div 1 in a separate start. Div 1S will sail its own course, with top mark probably Obelisk instead of Lady Jane which will remain with div 1.

 

This will ensure better downwind angles and more competitive racing in nor'easters. Expect majority Flying Tigers. A new perpetual trophy will be dedicated.

 

This initiative has been designed to provide close racing in a competitive division on Sydney Harbour.

 

Entry form online.

why split em up at all, if it is non spinnaker? Friday arvo beer can races, right? Snag on a roll back at the club and a few cold ones sort of way to end the week and welcome the weekend.

.

great initiative

 

very bad naming, NON-spin racing i presume

 

What is a great name that you suggest should be used? Division 1S is the official name of the division, but a descriptor would be good. Weekly prizes back at Rushcutters.

 

It will be non-spin, basically beat out, run home about 6nm total distance.

Im guessing to help alleviate startline chaos with a growing fleet

shame to split the tigers and the 38s though, good sparring partners
