LB has let himself down badly by flying the Red Ensign, My Yacht, by virtue of being on the Register of a Royal Yacht Club and by Royal assent as evidenced by a letter from a representative of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is entitled to fly the Blue Ensign. Of course we couldn’t have commercially tainted craft doing that as it is not a Yacht but a mere workboat. Maybe rather than a Tory LB is one of the despicable Nouveau Riche folk.

My club RQ has a royal warrant obviously but the right to fly the blue ensign is granted to the vessel not the club here in oz you silly cunt. Or are you mistaking the Australian civil  flag ( a defaced blue ensign) for a real blue ensign. But Don’t be concerned about your ignorance, we let clueless bogans into our club now as well. BTW my respectful comment about your cube collection was based on my belief that you were talking about World Champion cubes. If you were referring to anything else my respect is withdrawn.

I hope your Mum is ok LB.

I've been sailing up and down the bay all bloody afternoon,and couldn't find a living soul. I puzzled and puzzled over it all the way in till I finally realised what was going on..

I'd forgotten to turn my AIS on.

:D:D:lol::D

Christian,

To claim one could "easily" have a 2m pole plus antenna sticking up off a 1m transom antenna farm suggests you have little understanding of the pitching moment of a super maxi at 30 knots. The reinforcement required to keep such a lever from ripping out of the farm would be significant and for no real benefit.

Further, if you believe you can mount two VHF antenna within 100mm of one another and have one broadcast at 12W (25W at the radio less allowed cable loss) and not destroy the other's receiver then please proceed with the testing and publish the results.

All this nonsense notwithstanding, the facts remain that a 250g VHF antenna splitter is a far, far superior solution to either a transom mounted 3m AIS antenna or a second masthead antenna once all the ramifications are considered. In other words, as I said previously, the rules all but require the use of a splitter.

G'day Francis, I always enjoy reading your posts, even the tech ones that go way over my head, you bring an honest, erudite, educational balance to what can be full blown un-hinged threads.

Having said that, there are probably many people who dismiss or support Nic as a "bubbly blonde",  but are unaware of her C.V. 

I wonder how many of the contrarians are world champions in there chosen sport... I am posting a link here to Nics C.V. available to anyone who is willing to find it;

http://www.nicdouglass.org/biography/

Disclaimer: I have only ever briefly met Nic once, but she comes from a place I have close family ties to, there aren't many world champions coming out of the Milton / Ulladulla area.

Maybe the detractors on here or elsewhere can post their sailing resume' next time..

 

Thanks mate x

Your “Royal” club and some others around the world use the plain blue ensign. Other “Royal” clubs in Oz and around the world use the defaced blue ensign, the defacement being unique to the club. Both types of ensign are issued to the vessel, but can only be applied for through the club. If you leave the “Royal” club, you must handover your ensign and pennant. And as you know, there are also prescribed rules of etiquette for using the ensign and pennant.

Been there, done it. Royal Channel Islands Yacht Club, defaced blue ensign.

Actually I meant what I said and already explained in reply to Lion upthread. While majority of sats with AIS trancievers are low earth orbit (which explains the long ping interval), there are some geostationary at a lower altitude than most geostationary over select locations. They appear to be of the  low cost/shorter time stay up there variety for the reason Lion stats.  

Jeezuz!  Can't even get that right.

"Orbital stability. A geostationary orbit can be achieved only at an altitude very close to 35,786 km(22,236 mi) and directly above the equator.  All geostationary satellites have to be located on this ring."

Ah resorting to name calling and abuse again. Yes the letter of assent to fly the Blue ensign is given to the “Yacht” upon application to the Queens representative by virtue of being on a Royal Yacht Club register. Maybe your club allows workboats on the register, don’t really care. But yes the Blue ensign that I choose to fly is defaced with the white stars of the Southern Cross!

Given that you are probably a person emanating an odour of off prawns yourself, and display your ignorance through your ramblings on the forums, I am not particularly concerned to have your respect or otherwise. My sailing CV is OK BTW.

You are an odd chap. When did I say my Jeanneau had a warrant to fly the blue ensign? Why is a charter yacht a prawn trawler? Didn’t ask about your sailing CV just how many S2H you have done and your answer is none which puts the endless drivel you have written about the race in perspective. Go play on your Laser with the blue ensign and leave discussions about offshore racing to those that have actually done it. And speaking of ignorant, You don’t need a warrant to fly the Australian civil ensign on a boat cupcake. That is not the Blue ensign you were wanking on about. You really should shut the fuck up now but you won’t be able to help yourself so play on.

Why has the Ed allowed  the sycophantic "I have sailed on the boat - unpaid" Blue Robinson crap on the home page. If that is the case then more fool he as all the other wonder boys of ocean racing he lists were getting PAID! And that's the problem. The AIS was not working. Richards acknowledged thus after the finish saying it was not required in the rules. They should have made a declaration when they finished. It is likely the race commitee relay boat also knew. So the RC should have protested.

I think it would be categorised as 'balanced reporting'.  Sadly.

But the angle is predictable.  As you have pointed out, bleats of 'we are not cheats' are distractions from the real issue that is, it does not matter if it was deliberate or not.

The AIS Tx was not working.  Should have retired on being told that.

The infantile concept of "but but we didn't mean to do it, it was the mean and nasty technology that did it" is beyond belief at this level.

I suspect that this “confirmation” is never going to happen. Step outside of this forum and have a look at the situation. Those who believe and support WOXI already do, those who don’t are unlikely to be swayed and there are probably none that don’t have a foregone opinion already...

 

..Given that they can’t change the whole post race events why bother prolonging this issue. I could of course be proven wrong in a day or two.

 

You might need to rethink interest now is restricted to those contributing to this thread which btw has hit over 1,800 contributions in a week. There is obviously a lot of "read only" people with over 39,000 views.

As for there being only two WOXI views, those who support and those who do not support. That is nonsense. You forget the many that remain of a open mind, who I suspect out number the believers and non-believers combined.

You also seem to forgot that Richards has a demand for an apology from the RC still on the table. An apology he has sought based on him proving his claim.

As for your brain fart that Richards not delivering on his promise to provide evidence will prolong the issue? That evidence puts it to bed once and for all. You simply don't make any sense.

Of course we could all sit back and wait for next years race. Unfortunately coverage won't include any on board TV cameras as there is a unsubstainated claim their uplink fries onboard electronics.

Agree completely.  Even Brad Butterworth reported the AIS was not working. They should have declared and taken a penalty or even retired. Too many peeps getting paid to win and so lose their perspective on sportsmanship and fair sailing.

Not reading anything since I left this thread, just to make a comment that's been sitting in my craw.

I am always amused how people think that if one rule doesn't take care of a situation, then some other rule will be the omnibus collect all rule that will get the result they want.  Some have suggested a RRS69.

Gotta tell you what, this will NEVER happen.  Here's why. 1. There's never been any hearing.  2. There has never been anything found (by judges obviously) that a rule has been broken.  3. There has been no finding of guilt. 4. There has been no testimony in a hearing to learn how this may have occurred.  Any judge would have to be insane to initiate a RRS69 without a rule having been broken with a result of DSQ or some other penalty.

If judges were to initiated a RRS69 hearing in a case like this they open themselves up to a libel, slander, defamation lawsuit.

You guys and gals gotta realize, this is over, its in the books, move onto something important in your lives.

And if you had bothered to pull that rule quill out of your arse for a moment you would have read serious commentary here re Rule 69 was directed at these comments by Richards in an interview with editor of Sail-World.com Richard Gladwell, not the result on the water.

"The mistake that CYCA have made is that they have introduced AIS for the first time this year as a safety measure. The system is just not that accurate, it's flawed and has limited range (about 12nm). There are a whole lot of things that can affect AIS which can only transmit on a VHF frequency," Richards points out.

We think the Race Committee should make a public apology to us. We have been accused of something which simply never happened', says a still irate Richards.

When did I say that the Jeanneau  did or didn’t have a warrant?  You of course with your inability to comprehend the written word would be in a position where everything I have written has sailed straight over your rednecked head!

your charter boat of course likened to a prawn trawler because of the smell, the prawn trawler it’s catch and the Jeanneau its owner. There are more offshore races, and indeed tougher offshore races around than the S2H of course so again your limited intellect shines brightly for all to see.

Ooh you are knowledgeable about maritime regulations aren’t you. I was totally unaware that a vessel with Australian registration was required to fly the Red ensign.

So why don’t you go back to your holidays in paradise then or can’t you help yourself either?

?

Yep- couldn’t help yourself. Now what were you saying about ‘resorting to name calling’? So how come you haven’t done a Hobart? I mean for any Australian Offshore sailor it is a right of passage. Never been asked? To scared? To prone to sea sickness? To useless? All of the above?

What is conveniently forgotten by Robinson is this bonfire was started by Black Jack's Owner, Skipper and Tactician, no one else. Without their having a cry in front of the media no one would be the wiser. 

As for claims of cheating arising from that, it is restricted to a handfull of dumb cunts here and directed at only Richards. I have not sighted one post with Vila's name alongside that claim.

One of the reasons moving on is so difficult for some stems from public statements made by Richards between the finish last Friday and last Monday including a demand of an apology from the RC that is still on the table.

It would seem Mark Richards has not moved on, so why should everyone else?

Haven’t seen her today. We take the dog into the beach at 5am- hours before she would have rolled her fat arse out of bed. We walk the beach, pick up as much rubbish as we can carry each day and bury her turds deep in the sand below the high tide mark. You see mate some rules are just plain stupid and are for the obedience of clowns like you, and for the guidance of wise men like me. Normally they are made up by lefty sheep who spend their lives wringing their hands in mock outrage.

As I understand it an Australian registered ship must fly the red ensign, how ever a domestic recreational vessel can fly the Australian Maritime ensign, the Australian civil ensign or their state flag if they wish. Many Sydney boats fly the gay pride ensign and boats that have Hamilton island as their home port can do what ever they fucking like.

That's correct...

There are surprisingly plenty of Aussie registered yachts in the Med. Mind you most, like mine at the time, had never been out of European waters. Most were flying the normal Aussie flag.

Defamation relies on the claims being untrue.  I'm sure they would not want to examine the details of non-confirmation with the Rules of the Race.

Heading off to a piss-up.  Hopefully no one wants to talk about the S2H.

No, truth alone is not a defence in a defo. There is also your malicious intent to harm a person reputation, even if what you said was true. But you see petal it would be you that would have to prove that they are cheats, not them proving they are not. But you would be bankrupt long before it ever got to a courtroom. To late now to even put your prickle farm in your wife’s name as you have already made the defamatory comments on the worlds largest sailing website. The least of your worries would be your life ban for bringing the sport into disrepute. Defaming a Professional yachtsman, the head of the Australian Oylmpic Sailing, and an ex Olympic laser sailor and CEO will cost you millions even before the Billionaire boat owner gets his whack. The costs alone would be 400k. You really should think before you type.

Ah, the Trumpette is back. What makes you think only LGBTI peeps hate WOXI? And please, if you want to be taken seriously on this or any other forum you might reconsider your listed interests to include something relevant to the forum at hand. Currently you just flag your misogynistic nature for all to see.

No, truth alone is not a defence in a defo. There is also your malicious intent to harm a person reputation, even if what you said was true. But you see petal it would be you that would have to prove that they are cheats, not them proving they are not. 

Come on LB. The foundation of defamation  law in Australia is that of false and damaging statements being made that cause harm to personal or professional reputation. The remedy is damages which are largely capped in Australia. For instance a defamatory statement restricted to this thread isn't going to make the damages till go cha ching. The defamation proceedings may get wide airplay will but that is their problem to consider. The subject being a sporting event where the prospect of the claim being true was officially raised by the RC, (but not tested) would also need to be carefully considered. 

Intent doesn't convert the truth into a defamatory statement or visa versa for a false one. Anyone instigating a defamation action also has to show the statements are false not true which is evidence shared between the parties. 

In America they have some provisions that give celebrities higher hurdles to get over to support their reputation has been harmed.

Anyone who insigated such an action would be nuts as well as anyone making damaging claims without some reliable evidence to shield them.

If nuts the only outcome is their respective lawyers will be lining up in new boats for next years race.

Judging by his previous posts, he's not interested in a popularity contest.  Probably doesn't have any energy left after he horizon jobbed the fleet in his dickhead contest.

Calm down mate. Downvoted don’t mean anything, This isn’t a popularity contest. 

Only some one on  -144 would think that.

You are of course correct the voting system isn't about popularity it's just a way to identify dickheads.

Not resorting to name calling at all, just making the implication that you are “one”. Quite frankly I am surprised that you had comprehension skills to grasp the implication of what I was calling you.

Maybe for such a legend as yourself the S2H is a right of passage, for us mere mortals it would be a rite of passage. Me all of above for not doing so. 

Now try a bit harder if you want to make a stinging shutdown.

Now of course the Westcoaster, that’s another race for men only, no boys. How many have you done?

None. Probobly the same number as you but as this is the internet and you are anonymous- go you hardest petal. Quite frankly I have no interest in bashing down the west coast racing against 10 other c grade Melbourne boats just to say I did it. If I wanted to do something unpleasant just to say I had done it I would just bang your sister. 

Can you spell check this post for me as well? I couldn’t be fucked.

Defo’s are a rich man’s game jack. Most never get anywhere near a court because someone throws their hands in the air when the Lawyers bills just keep coming in. But I am only shit stirring Randumb for sport. He is off his fucking tree at the moment. The 2018 S2H is fish and chip wrapping to all but a few people on here and FB. If he really cared he can do something about it like they tried with Witty in the Volvo. Surprised he doesn’t given what an attention whore he is.

Good point. His annual MR meltdown is something I look forward to each year. It’s just a pity that Witty was out early this year as well. The silly cunt would be on Valium by know if he had done well.

60.3
A protest committee may
  1. protest a boat, but not as a result of information arising from a request for redress or an invalid protest, or from a report from a person with a conflict of interest other than the representative of the boat herself. However, it may protest a boat
    1. if it learns of an incident involving her that may have resulted in injury or serious damage,

And one way around that is to combine both the low Leo's and the high equatorial Geo's in a network.

The US mob Orbcomm and Inmarsat (who have the GMDSS rights until Iridium start theirs) are looking to combine their Leo and Geo infrastructure to improve Inmarsat's coverage at the poles and Orbcomm benefiting from the lower latency of Inmarsat’s Geo constellation.

Orbcomm and the Norwegian Space Centre (4 sats) I think have Leo AIS constellations closest to the S2H race course. Though putting them up there and keeping them there is another thing. Having a third of your constellation drop out is a bit of a ouch moment. 

I continue to be amazed at the size of these things like NorSats around 20x30x40cm with around 50w of solar power buzzing 600klm overhead picking up AIS plus doing other shit.

'as I post under my real name'? So you make a grammatical error in a post lecturing me on my grammatical errors...

So what are you saying? That the protest committee  can’t protest as they received the report from a person with a conflict of interest or are you saying that the failure to Tx may have led to a collision with a freighter resulting in injury or serious damage and the PC can protest.

For a world famous sailor and grammar Nazi you are not having a great day...

'Might' is the correct word in this context not 'May', cupcake.

May is used to express what is possible, factual, or could be factual. For example,

  • He may lose his job.
  • We may go on vacation.
  • I may have dessert after dinner.

Might is used to express what is hypothetical, counterfactual, or remotely possible. For example,

  • If you hurry, you might get there on time.
  • If I had shown up on time, I might have kept my job.
  • If I win the lottery, I might buy a Ferrari.

Let me demonstrate this in your context.

Frant MAY have a tiny dick.

Frant MIGHT act like an arrogant wanker on the internet because he has a tiny dick.

You have got one over me there admittedly, I can’t see the grammatical  error in “as I post under my real name”.  As your redneck politician said Please explain.m

Cheers Frant

 You ain't as well known as you think you are.

Had to do a fair bit of searching and found you via a story you had written about yourself winning a race to Fiji that you were the only entrant in. My sincerest condolences regarding your sister. I mean that. Nevertheless you still need to get over yourself.

It may help that you put a linky to all of Rule 60 and re 60.2 that Richards says;

“12 hours later, and with evidence that had been supplied by Black Jack. It's a disgrace and completely breaks racing rule 60.2, not to mention it was not any fault of ours that caused the splitter failure in the first place."

https://www.racingrulesofsailing.org/rules?part_id=38

and one that contains 60.3 in full not as abbreviated above.

Not until Randumb returns from his doctors appointment. Until then Frant isn't a bad replacement. Cannot admit he is wrong and hit a bait like a Mangrove Jack.

To be clear then they might have had a collision which may have led to damage or injury. Your use of may and might are totally incorrect correct and that is why I had to re-wright the statement again, and again display your my light low intellect.

I'll cut to the chase ,

My point remains that the IJ's were far too quick to declare the protest invalid .

As I posted earlier , the actions of the IJ should be to attempt to find a way to hear , not disqualify at the first glimmer of opportunity .

Should this have been the case this thread would be well over , one way or another .

But doesn't that responsibility lie with the Protester,  in this case the RC. Surely it is not the IJ responsibility to take on the RC's role of prosecuting the Protest?
