      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.

  2. Ultime / G-Class Development

    Been to Lorient and La Trinite last week on holidays. Saw all of the big ones ( and man they´re really big when you stand next to them) except BP, Macif and Idec. Spindrift got her rudders out (new T-rudders?) and Sodebo definitely has T-rudders. Because the boats were in the water I couldn´t see wether they got center-foils or not. Shot some pics. Can anybody tell my how to post them here if wanted? May I post 7MB pics? Or should change the size? On the pier it was written that Spindrift will make a new Jules Verne try in November and Actual will try it solo.
  3. Transat Jacques Vabres 2017

    Like I said before: All you kiwis don´t have any reason to be worried, it still is 4:1. START WORRYING AT 6:1
  7. Keep cool man. This is one from the old days when every newcomer was greeted like this: Fuck off newbie or show us some tits. Happened to me, too. Seems to be a good tradition and coming back.
  8. To all you Kiwis: Don't worry - now. It's 3:0! Start worrying at 6:1
