      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.

  10. Rib Accident at VOR Lorient Start

    However bad this make look as more news comes out, I don't really think you can accuse the Spindrift crew of trying to kill anybody. You’re correct that is badly worded. Thank you for pointing that out I apologies that is not what I meant to say. The pictures make it look like they are seemingly posing for the camera while they run them over
  11. Rib Accident at VOR Lorient Start

    Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. With my limited amateur knowledge it seems like the captain of Spindrift was in an area the race organizers prefer he would have stayed out of for safety reasons. The Captain let his ego get in the way and made the decision to ignore them and stand on his freedom to go where ever he wants and do what he wants. That attitude of self entitlement dam near got someone killed and gifted them with a lifelong disability. Well Spindrift you got the spotlight back on you like you wanted I hope this is the publicity the sponsors were looking for. The crew smiling and posing for pictures while they try to kill someone. (edit to fix spelling)

    You must not be reading the same thread I am. 90% of the posts are from trolls who could care less about the truth or the people involved. They are just Jealous little bitches that will never be able to afford a gunboat or talented enough to be hired to sail one so they choose to slander and belittle those that are doing things they only dream about.

    Wess - you seem to have missed the point, so I'll repeat it for you.... It seems that it is OK to mercilessly humiliate HR, but we can't say anything about the GB abandonment - please explain beyond sycophantic sucking up. Are you really that stupid? Or is your agenda blinding common sense?

    Is that you Peter J? thank you for the compliment but No. I do not now nor have I ever worked for Peter or Gunboat I have actually never even met the man or touched a gunboat I did stay on a holiday in express once if that counts.

    I think someone hit the nail on the head “this is nothing but a witch-hunt” If I was in marketing @ Gunboat not only would I no longer post here I would pull all advertisement. Yes a rich guy bought an expensive boat and abandoned it sooner than most of you would have. He calculated the risk and made the choice. Yes with my sailing experience I would not have made the choice to enter out in that weather forecast I know my limitations and for me personally I would have waited. I personally would much rather read about a boat being prematurely abandoned then read about 5 dead sailors that could have been rescued but chose to stay so they would not be flamed on the internet by a bunch of keyboard sailors. I have read from another news source that the salvage team that was contracted to retrieve her is in possession of rainmaker and making way back to port.
