      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.

    Hi, Cavalier seul is still sailing at St Cast (north britany) !

    Cavalier seul has been built in 1968 for Mr Cavalier. In the late sixties and early seventies she raced in Channel. She participated the Sydney-Hobart 1969. She was in very poor conditions when Mr Denis Horeau bought her in Florida 4 or 5 years ago. He transfered her in France, at Charlie Capelle´s shipyard. By chance, I found her there and bought strait away !! It was in september 2012. During one year, we have worked hard to restore her in our shipyard (LMB Marine) in St Cast.

    You are welcome ! Great to see her in such a good condition. Finding this old pic apparently ignited some worn brain-cells and I suddenly remembered that this was the Tina the Lunven family (of Stiren + Grand-Louis fame + Figaro wins by father and son Bruno + Nicolas) cruised and raced in the late 70's. If you did not have erlier contact with them, they certainly know a lot of stories about this boat.
