      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.

Anyone have the dates for the State titles in April i think? Looked but cant find them!

 

Does anyone know when the state titles are going to be on. And if they are being held at yeppoon again. Some people need to plan early for these things.

TODAY I SAILED ON THE MAGOO.......THE REEF AT PEEL WAS NICE TOO!!! :P

She was flying upwind too, pacing well with an Elliott 7 :P:lol: :lol:

 

Must admit though looked awful as we sailed passed watching the Bogan in waist deep water trying to pull her over while Slapper tried valiantly to motor her out to sea!. Bad luck boys, buy a depth sounder!!!

Must thank the guys off the boats "The Point" and "Logistics" for there attempt to pull us off the reef, there motors just wernt quite big enough to do the job, and combined with big tide flow and there lack of manuvering ability made it a bit hard, but at least they stopped, and stood by till the Air Sea Rescue turned up. One of them had to motor out into the channel to radio Raby Bay air sea rescue as none of us could contact them from where we were stuck as we were right in close to the headland.

 

Does anyone know if there is still a rescue service at Dunwich?

 

No real damage done to the boat, only took the gelcoat of the starboard side of the bulb, sailed home after with no problems, went the kite and had a ball sitting on around 13-15 knots topping out at over 16 in waterloo bay, the good kite run changed my mind to selling the thing!

One word. Holy shite!!!

 

 

Yeah one way of describing it barney... Went out on the old AAPT grundig today for a yacht today, Started with the guys that were heading to caloundra and back. Got half way with the NE's and thought we would head back, set the shute and sat around 14 knts. Seen the breeeze line coming straight for us so we dropped the kite by the time we got the head in the bag we had a good 28 knts on the nose, hit 34 not long after. Sailed back to river gate with just number 2 headie sitting around 12 knts. Was a great day and great experience for myself,hopefully get another ride on the boat soon.

Yeah nice work there. It was great to have a big boat that wasn't racing "shadowing" the fleet at the start.

PUNCH BACK INTO IT. How often in a yacht race do you do 180 degree turn at a mark and not either put a spinnaker up or take one down. Bloody paiful race worked all the way out there to turn around and work all the way back.

I was on the beneteau Onyava. The change hit us rounding the fairway mark so after beating all the way there we had to beat all the way back.

Got an email last night saying there was another bloke looking at buying an E7 in Brisbane. With the possibility of 6 racing on Sunday 9th March and 3 boats still not that keen to go sailing, makes for good fleet racing.

 

Manly CC Race 2 & 3 Sunday 9th.

On Saturday 8th is the 2008 Ultimate Sails Sir Ellis Murphy night race Series. Race Starts at 1600. Cat 5N. All boats welcome.

Yeah - elixir would be in that if we get a bit of notice. Good to give it a run in some races before Airlie.

Hey slapper, what is sms measurement and do we have to get Vivace measeured before Airlie Beach Race Week.

 

 

Not sure about Airlie yet, they will probably do there own thing as its not an australian sportboat assoc event, i think a few would baulk at the extra fee as well. Just keen to get something going up here and see if a decent system can be eveloved to get away from the biased shitfight the clubs have running up here at the moment. Check the ASBA website for the measurement details and info on the rule/assoc ect!
