      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. I am so proud of what these guys are achieving, but damn I was wishing they would crack the 40 days! At least that leaves a record for those who wish to follow. Bon Chance to the new guard!
  2. Can anyone link to the interviews sans french translation over the top? Don't worry - found it.
  3. Mangina is Matt Johnston from Australia. You see him interviewed in the latest Vendee Live (English) at about 25:00
  4. That is good. ^^ I just watched Scallywag sail by beating upwind under the bridge with jib alone.
  5. Patrice just went by my window under tow. I suppose that rudder is still missing.
  6. Sydney Noumea is 2018 Sydney Noumea isn't shorthanded. Remember, t's the CYCA.
  7. Yes No ....and having a data analysis skill set has been around since Magellan....The first man ship to do the full donut. Fixed
  8. I like this race because it's like asking the second start line of the Hobart to keep going for 3,600 nautical miles. Black Pearl, a 47 footer, just cracked 354 miles in 24 hours.
  9. Hey Forss, Any chance of a quick and dirty tracker for this? Might be interesting to see if they bump into Louis Burton. Race is halfway done but I'm surprised it didn't get a mention in Ocean Racing Anarchy.
  10. Sailor Girl's interview of Paul Clitheroe probably was the most succinct: "... as you know the only reason we can't claim [full amateur status] is because a number of them [the crew] work in the industry ..." Start around 5:25: https://www.facebook.com/sailorgirlHQ/videos/1233615480015547/
  11. WOXI (2012) is starting to come back at Loyal
  12. ALC 3 miles from the ice gate.
  13. It's Loyal's (line honours) race to lose right now ..
  14. Maverick was 13 places behind (over the line) Black Pearl (Carkeek 47) for the Giraglia. Black Pearl was 40 minutes ahead.
