      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 Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    it felt to me like he had been reminded to say las malvinas by the PR folk, and that maybe explains the emphasis? he did only say it once, right at the start, and said Falkland Islands loads more.
  2. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    hey stief, yeah the 68s used to rig a canvas cover with pockets in front of the wheel, and the 70s have always had the mesh. we put the pockets over the top of our mesh, so we always had access to water bottles, sunblock etc. the 70s are much less protected than the 68s, and they in turn were less protected than the 60s. the mesh is pretty handy when it’s gnarly
  3. The 70th Brisbane to Gladstone race.

    great video shaggy. looks like a fun race!
  4. Next VOR on IMOCAs?

    well, the current clipper 70 is currently on its third lap. I haven't seen or read anything about the next generation though. these boats normally do four laps and are then replaced. I'd be interested to see what will happen next, and when, with them.
