      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 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Seems safe to me!
  2. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Headed to buy a knife to crack open those coconuts?
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    It will be great to see vs11 on the water again.
  4. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Interesting to read that they eat more when bored and not much is going on. I would have thought the opposite-that they eat more after working a long, difficult shift with lots of wind and maneuvers-but this makes sense too.

    Prescription glasses will set you back a bundle, unfortunately. I have lost two pairs sailing, and now try only to sail with contacts.

    Poor pascal. He looks tired and confused. At least he is not making shadow puppets in this video.

    VOR getting some good coverage in Time. The article details the rigors of the race ("each leg spans 20 to 25 days. To reduce weight, the crew subsists on freeze dried food. There’s nowhere to shower or wash clothes. It’s cold, it’s wet, and there’s no privacy. Sleep takes place in narrow net bunks hung below deck, where it’s noisy. On a good night, crew members get two to four hours of sleep."), outlines the history of the race, and discusses some of TTOP's work with respect to plastic. Nice to see the race is reaching a broader audience in the US! http://time.com/5126067/volvo-ocean-race-sailing/

    Guess this is a thing now. Doesn’t look as good as ttop’s Shadows.

    I hope the OBRs did not make them pose for that! Especially if they had work to do on board!

    Nice pic from on board TTOP, spreading their message / brand. https://www.volvooceanrace.com/en/raw/7049.html
  11. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    The red boats must be thrilled to be “only” 60 miles bacK.
  12. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I’d like to see a follow up to this when they are on the southern ocean. That must be so brutal!
  13. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Haha. Interesting. Don’t know what I think about that.
  14. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Is that a dog?
  15. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    This leg has been interesting all the way through. Any chance the red boats can make a come back as the fleet compresses? Or are they just too far off the pace at this time?
