The Australian Sailing and RQYS Kabuki Theatre Thread

Being a theatre in which disgruntled members, ex members and others with excrement on the liver may don exotic costume and engage in an arcane choreography intertwining Veiled  Allegations, suggestion of Inside Knowledge, and Delphic Prophecies of Doom And Unmitigated Failure, tantalising the audience with the prospect of a glimpse of the Sordid Inner Machinations by Faceless Men and the Karmic Justice that shall imminently be meted out to them, yet all the while remaining shrouded between the Shadow and the Mist such that once the ritual is complete the question remains unanswered and the viewer can only guess at whether the thing is real, or just a half remembered Dream.

Leave your facts at the door as the only currency in this theatre is suggestion, and the only rule is never, ever answer what was asked.

The owner of a  classic ex Fasnet winner certainly has asked many questions that aren’t being answered. 

Have some more Kool aid Al, your glass is looking half empty.

I’ll drink the Kool Aid if someone can clarify exactly what’s going on.
 

If I’ve interpreted it correctly Sir Joh has risen from the dead, is running for a board seat at RQYS and has been having an affair with Peter Beattie?

I don’t recall making any predictions and I could give a fuck about RC protests in a race I haven’t done for at least 10 years - the last time was with you I think.

Similarly I could give even less of a fuck about club or any other form of politics. I haven’t believed a word that’s come out of someone in a position of power’s mouth since I was 13 and that’s not about to change. But you and LB seem to take the position that there was some utopian time when club politics wasn’t venal, petty and self interested, which you, he and I know is simply not true. Always was, always will be, across the board for any type of club.

So fine, go full Quixote, knock yourself out, I‘ll lend you some jousting sticks if you want BUT:

1. don’t tell me I’m drinking the kool aid just because I disagree with you - and on that point I think it’s safe to say that Godwin’s Law applies equally to Kool Aid and Holocaust references alike by now ; and

2. If you’re going to make accusations then make them and be done, and stop with the secret squirrel insider knowledge shit.
 

Beef out.

They're all shit-scared of defamation suits, that's why there's just a lot of in-your-end-o's and no substantive statements flying about the place.

100% agree about clubs having always been venal, petty and self interested, The big thing that separates stuff is, is it *your* guys the ones in power and exercising that venality & self-interest in your favour or - not.

If you don’t want to Drink the Kool Aid try these. I think the idea is to jam them in the same place that your opinion came from.

18 months after 2018 S2H and AISGate...a sycophantic RC, a "dead cat" protest, a end of race competitor declaration not mentioned ..... and it seems still not a lesson learnt.​

Jack, you seem to be under the impression that anyone actually cares about bullshit like this anymore.

Everyday the sport dies some more.

It is not like anyone will lose their jobs or get sacked from Australian Sailing.

No one was ever going to ask the only relevant question and no one was going to answer it.

The conclusion is one of the most laughable statements ever made by protest committee..

Far from bullshit we have here a fascinating fairy tale. 

1. Maybe this is in a new AS course for RO/RC's on " How Not to Conduct Protests." It seems to tick most boxes.

2. Then something really fucking spooky. Two seperate boats in seperate races incur give way protests in Sydney Harbour, where they both questioned about being penalised. Then same boats in different subsequent races incur RC protests for exactly the same rule breech, but it is dismissed/fails and they both keep the silverware.  

Is there a Triology in the making?

Surely you’re not suggesting some form of collusion has occurred! Are you questioning the integrity of the protest system itself or just the fact that a home IJ chaired the panel?

I'm with Lydia on this...I think that the sport has jumped the shark....the absolute lack of fucks given over this off the charts... not even if viewed from the perspective of "manufactured hype for the purposes of entertainment in these covid lockdown times" does this warrant further comment...
