      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.

  6. Team Vestas grounded

    I like how the grounding nearly pulled the bikini bottoms of the chick in the background.

    Australian news has just picked up the story with footage on 7. This is the first I report I have seen in the main stream media here in Oz. Hard to believe really as one of this countries best skippers is/was racing around the world and had serious incdent and it only now gets reported about . Fucking shameful Ozzy media outlets! The only sailing the news here is Boxing Day S-H , even then they just focus on the seven logo for an hour or so then a shot of MR and BO at the end. Anyway back to the fucking cricket and what the Karshitians are doing for Xmas. Rant over :-)

    Each time you hear that bang, bump, thud, or shudder , you learn somthing. Like fuck, don't do that again. I know there are 101 ways to run aground but there is no point testing them all out eh?That's why some of us like offshore sailing where there is bugger all around to run into ( except those big steel monsters) For some reason I just look at it like this , as many of you will. Rule 5 proper lookout, Rule 6 Safe speed, Rule 7 Risk of collision Rule 8 action to avoid a collision and so on. Then eventually you stop hitting things. Of course ya need ya lucky charms, Red Sox, glass fishing float and that dusty old sextant.
  9. Yip they are looking pretty bad ass sitting there on the hard. Me thinks WOXI looking a little dated.. What does this mean? Nothing. Weird how it all pans out , up hill boat v sled guess it just depends on the weather on the day . Can they both be right? We'll find out soon enough. Can't wait.
  10. Team Vestas grounded

    .....that term can mean different things to different people....in Aus,doesn't it mean a good piss-up!? Ahh you know what ya talking about, a few coldies, good as gold.
  11. Team Vestas grounded

    Does anyone have a paper chart for that area? I would love to know the ZOC for that reef. My guess is it is proberbly D or U. Please enlighten me.
  12. Team Vestas grounded

    Is this Vor a joke? I find it hard to believe a team could run aground in this day and age. At least all the boats didn't run aground at the same time.
  13. Coolboats to admire

    Nothing sub zero here
