      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. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I've been card farming the other games, It pays to not finish the race quickly as the credits for the cards exceeds the placement.
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I saw the Zezo routing suggestion and based on the wind holes in 48 hours I'm going to try and head south too.
  3. Ubi Maior Jib Furler

    The rod for the Jiber requires the rod to be headed with an elliptical shaped die, resulting in the rod head fitment to the collet and "lock in", allowing the transfer of torque without compromising structural integrity.
  4. Ubi Maior Jib Furler

    Here is a YouTube video about it:
  5. Mold is visual on almost all interior photos. Did they even drain the hull once it came out of the water? Perhaps the starboard side items were never immersed due to the healing action. Regardless it needs to be cut up and recycled into a road.
  6. Huh? New Sunfish Class?

    This is really interesting from a sailmaker perspective. No more $600 sunfish mains, hello $169.99 $119.99 ones. I'm sure someone in Warwick RI is happy about this.
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Anyone else farming cards for credits in the other games? I've been doing it but intentionally going slow/running aground/sailing to Newport so when the race ends or I finish I can convert the cards to credits. Does anyone know if there is a factor or something that decreases the value of the cards the longer you are out there?

    You might have to go to their forum: http://www.virtualregatta.com/en/clubhouse.php
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    If you have time, you can try farming cards in the other games and try cashing those in at the end of the legs to earn credits I suppose.

  11. Which autopilot?

    Talk to Railmeat, he has lots of miles under his belt with his Class 40 Dragon.
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I know the Vendee Globe was around 20 euros total and the last VOR was close to it, most likely 20 euros as well.
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Last go around, you paid a flat fee for the entire race so upgrades applied to all legs.
