      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

    Pretty incredible repair under the circumstances. Definitely job well done to complete this leg by Mapfre and its team!
  2. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Ahhh. Thanks for the clarification. That doesn’t sound so bad, actually.
  3. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Yikes. That would be a harsh call in light of all the work MAPFRE put in, the lightening fast repairs it made to its sail and mast track, the light winds it has had to endure over the last few days, and now the food rationing it is doing, all just to complete this leg. I hope they are allowed to finish and get well deserved points for this leg.
  4. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    They caught a break this leg.... unfortunately, it was in their mainsail. (Sorry could not resist.)
  5. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Could be an alternative source of food for MAPFRE if rationing doesn’t work?
  6. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Glad they are not resting on their lead, but 278 nms seems almost insurmountable at this point. Hopefully I do not jinx them by writing this.
  7. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    I wonder what she means by “through no fault of our own”. That the spreaders / rig were faultily manufactured or of different quality than those on the other boats? (BTW, routing for Dee to at least beat MAPFRE)
  8. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    A day late, but incredibly well done, Brunel, and congrats to Dong Feng as well. Touching words by both skippers. Enjoyed the short Live show this morning. Xabi’s message to TTOP (we came from behind in the last leg and caught up to you) was pretty funny, but perhaps a bit optmistic at this point.
  9. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Agreed, and at least in the least leg, the tracker on the live finish was slightly ahead of the tracker on the website.
  10. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Cannot believe it is so close! What a finish!!
  11. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Sorry, I believe you are correct. My mistake.
  12. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Another extra point for the winner of the in-port races. MAPFRE currently leading those standings by 3 points over df.
  13. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Thanks all for the wonderful content here, and especially the local knowledge. Looks like we are in for some interesting duels for first and fourth places. Also, go DF and TTOP!!
  14. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Brutal leg. Feel horrible for Vestas, after everything they have been through on Leg 4, and the great work they had put in on this leg. Anyone know why the other boats were informed about Vestas's dismasting, but not about what happened to Mapfre?

    According to the live, it took them about 14 hours total to make their repairs and sail back to the location they suspended racing.
