      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.

  1. The "old" one will be sold if it is still living after that race.
  2. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Shit. Still no boats on the Forss tracker here
  4. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Guys, just a little sidestep. If you wanna have a look at a real Cape Horn rounding look at www.gis.ee and then at L éau commotion. This guy must be crazy . Down to 62 south for about a week. Unbeliveable!!!!!!!
  5. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Help. I can´t get no boats on the Forss tracker.
  6. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Do you really think „drastic changes“ only means changes in crew? I Think that alone would´t help much.
  7. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Until #35 this has been a fine thread. Please, please, please take your bashing-each-other to another thread and leave us alone!
  8. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    I dearly hope on Sunday morning the first three will not be where the tracker is showing them to be otherwise Vestas is going to do another Vestas

    Before this is over I´d like to thank all of you who took part in this thread. It was one of the best I ever read on SA, very informative, very interesting and no bashing each other, no smart asses. Really cool. Again thank you all

    talking about the weather he had and had before in the VG: Some Guys have all he Luck (Rod Steward)

    Well, if he does´n t hit or break something, this should go out very fine. i´ve been very skeptical until now because of these boat breaking speeds and the normal difficulties up the Atlantic. But now I think he´s gonna make it.

    Looking at windy one can see that this is going to be tough. If he´s lucky he may ride the low to Cape Horn and avoid the high pressure area which is building there on saturday. Then up the Atlantic next week there may be a biiig wall at 90 degrees to his course. Then looking at Covilles course up the Atlantic he had some luck and was pretty fast. FG better should have around 1000 miles in his pocket before the Falklands otherwise it will be tight, not talking about UFO´s.I remember that Coville in one of his attempts was 1000 miles in advance at the Horn then got stuck at the brazilian coast and finally hit a container and that was that. Still a long way to go.

    here we go https://www.teamactual.eu/la-cartographie/ Sad to say: My guy Alain Maignan has given up and is going back to La trinity. Something broke, can´t translate what they are writing. Maybe someone can have a look here and translate.

    well, looking at windity he´s right behind the center and I think that´s just where he wanted to be. Don´t know what´s coming next but pushing windity forward it seems that there is some big ride coming. But even Coville at this time got a great ride.
  15. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Well, there is no reason to be jumping up and down. Look at Coville´s routing along the Pacific and up the South Atlantic. These things never are decided on the way down to Capetown.
