      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.

    BitterFlakey you're making me feel claustrophobic.

    The V60 Foiler good idea from the Turner dynasty. Having it as a seperate division in IMOCA events was a brain fart. He never thought beforehand about IMOCA's obvious reaction to that by simply putting the boot on the other foot and gauging his own reaction to IMOCA saying, "how about putting our Open 60's into the VOR as a seperate division"? Blinding fucking obvious the answer?

    Volvo will be the last ones on the planet to explore taking that relatively flat water mono/trimarane and seeing if it can be adopted for a RTW race. They have neither the wallet or the need to unless they go back to a box rule.

    The 20 to 30 mile gap between the podium chasers seems steady as a rock. Hope Shang has a good wig-maker on hand.

    Well it must have been a healthy reaming out because it either vapourised them or they left the bung hole unplugged and sunk.
  6. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    ^^^ Thread drift is good...keeps one sane...just like the crew on the Paintwagon who are now discussing golf.
  7. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Sure is
  8. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Isn't he dark post 0100 UTC so that is now a ghost until they turn the light back on?
  9. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Dunno..Bessie's hairdryer?
  10. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    Do you have cheap health care to get your head straight again???...that is one hell of a scary list. Maybe we do need global warming and more hurricanes/typhoons/cyclones?

    Smart and expected thing for Witt to do is just put Scallyskirts in between Teapot and Dee and the finish and he is safe. Wonder if going dark suggests he has a Plan B and is going to attack Brunel with a high risk option?
  12. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Those two carpetmunchers are giving fish smell and anchovies a really bad name.

    ^^^ Great product but do wish one day they can make displays last a bit longer than they do on wet boats.

    Ah I see. Funny stuff. Some of those Virtual people are truly wacky. I remember doing the first Virtual back in W60 days or might have been first VO70 race, I forget. Was hosted by CompuServe? Took me until half way around getting beaten by clueless idiots that the sail plan you selected was utter crap. Light off the wind the quickest thing ended up being a Storm Jib and uphill blowing dogs off chains you hoisted a kite and took off. I never went back after that harrowing experience.

    What competition? Anyway the kid ain't mine and if it was then someone did a vasectomy reversal while I was sleeping.
