      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. Doing away with winches

    if they were Anderson 10's haven't you gone from 10:1 to 6:1?
  2. Doing away with winches

    What size winches did it have?
  3. Back Surgery -- Who's had it done?

    http://thesweethome.com/reviews/best-foam-rollers/ $20 on Amazon. Some caution against use on lower back.
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I had to run the game in Firefox, would not work in Chrome for me.
  5. Back Surgery -- Who's had it done?

    "To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail" Out of interest - do you exercise? Have you been doing core-focussed workouts (pilates, etc)?
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Only the leg. However, you don't have to buy. With your placings you should accrue enough credits to get all the upgrades for the next leg without spending actual $. As Mom said, you get credits for your position and for unused cards. I did the Transat first (with upgrades I could get for the free 800 credits) - finished 1,212 Then Clipper (again, only upgrades with the free credits) - finished 1,742 And VOR Prologue (paid for the discount full upgrades - $5ish) and used Zezo - finished 80th With those three races (admittedly I did pay for one upgrade pack) I have enough credits to get fully upgraded for leg 1. Then I have 610 credits leftover for leg 2, plus whatever credits I get from Leg 1 and any other races I do etc.

    The base of the 'T' is between Philly and Pittsburgh and then anything north. I try not to leave the city.
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Red Bezel = too close to the wind. What's your TWA? What sail have you got up?
  9. 2017 Australian Multihull Championships

    Congrats and well done all. Looks like very close racing again.
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Sweet, thanks for the Zezo tip - looking at it now. Seems like a handy tool. Mini Transat is my first race, haven't spent any money. Doing clipper now too. Is there a 'sailing anarchy' yacht club we can join to track each other / compete in the game?
  11. Steve and Dave Clarks Unidentified Foiling Object

    Link? Where is this Bristol place?
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Thanks for the inside info, Mom, I've really been struggling with the new format - seems much buggier etc. Are there any alternatives? EDIT: And congrats on the ranking!
  13. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    It was at Hammo. Didn't seem to be the boat holding them back. It's never performed well though (has it?).
  14. Rules question: the committee boat

    Retire after finish?
  15. used 4 seat convertibles under 8k?
