      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.

Awesome Lickety :) :).

 

Sorry Ricky. We didnt even got to Squadron before the card filled up. No pics of Octopuusy wiping oug, no Shaw thing porpoising down to Como (doing the dolphin!), no vipers turtling. Very disappointing.

 

That said, got some nice footage of catching up to the fleet after starting a minute late and of us trucking up hill. Passed a viper like it was standing still...giggle. The Shaw's love heavy air. Might see if Swompy can help me to upload it.

 

We should change the name of this thread to The Shaw Report ;).

Now you just have to work on your height Scotch....snicker

Are you and octo going to join the Vipers for the RFBYC Opening?? Mid river start at 2:05

I'll run a few extra course cards off...

Looks like eight vipers, Indecent Haste and whoever else...

Could be a good turnout....

Ended up a nice 13-14Knots. Didn't predict the Fremantle Docter to kick that hard after a slow move through the North.

:D :D am so!

 

Yeah, it was pretty light most of the race. Best run all day was heading back to SoPYC Octopussy got line honours, followed by Indecent haste and then us. Freshies aparently messed up the results, probably mistook us for Octopussy because we had our old Octopussy sails on.

 

Masses of boats out near the start line. Two canoes decided to sail through the middle of the fleet amidst everyone (couldn't believe it - was sure they were going to get run over.

 

Was great to see everyone out there :).

Another great day. Beautiful sailing weather... If a bit light.

Interesting start with the sports boat fleet, 8 vipers and the Musto performance skiffs starting on the one line. The Musto's must have loved that...

The Shaws and the bigger T750 fought it out for line Honours with Octopussy getting the gong.

Tim Reger in his new Viper sailed superbly to finish a couple of minutes ahead of the other Vipers and a few seconds behind the Shaw -Shaw Thing.

Converting elapsed times to SMS, Viper 1st, Shaw 2nd and Viper 3rd.

Opening are over and sportsboat SMS series to come ... Should be great close racing.

Here's a summary of our day. Great tussle with the T750, M24 and all the rest of the fleet being close behind. Terrific to see all the Shaws and most of the Vipers out. I suspect the RFBYC handicapper didn't do us any favours ! The trip back to Freshie wasn't too bad either.

Cool footage, 410. That's a good angle. How is it mounted on the boom?

 

Those traps look like great fun!!! :)

Flat bottomed u-shaped carbon bracket under boom just forward of rear blocks. Nice to see you Saturday. Boat looks very good.

Sounds ideal. Will have to tell Skid.

 

Yeah, we were/are really happy with it. Just have to sort our keel issue and repair a bit of damage that happened at Port Walcott.

 

Hey, do you have a speed puc? We need to get one and suppose we should do our homework.and get a good one.

Going to make for a tactical Governors Cup... Run, Reach, Reach, Reach, Reach, Reach, Upwind, Reach.. Somehow I think a Couta boat might win.... they charge hard in a blow reaching.. Or a Sporty... if you get an ok handicap
