      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.

    http://www.vendeeglobe.org/en/news/18219/passing-the-traffic-separation-scheme TLDR: "Christophe Gaumont, President of the Race Committee and international referee confirmed that the leader’s route did not take him into this exclusion zone, as shown on the data."

    These guys are blazing! Amazing race to follow!
  3. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Looks like ALC is finally putting some miles back onto his lead! GO ALC!
  4. Vendee Globe 2016?

    I can't believe it, but I am actually pretty nervous for ALC right now! I am shocked I am feeling any emotions for a race I can't follow in real-time on video, but this one really captures the imagination! Great race!

    Now, it seems like Armel is back stuck in a windhole.
  6. Vendee Globe 2016?

    He seems fairly optimistic though.
  7. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Things looking better for Armel! It must feel good for him to not just be bleeding miles each sked. Also, Alex, who is definitely owed props, is at 2kt. Surely, it will take him some time to get out of these conditions - right?
  8. Vendee Globe 2016?

    This is brutal - I am rooting for ALC, and each sked makes me more and more nervous. Thought he had it in the bag at the horn.
  9. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Hopefully ALC will have a big smile on. Love this race!
  10. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Happy to see that ALC got past AT! Such exciting racing! Anyone want to venture a guess as to whether ALC can extend his lead? If he is foiling and AT is not, he should be able to do so...
  11. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Bored... this next sched can't come soon enough...
  12. Vendee Globe 2016?

    ALC still catching up, just not as rapidly as he was the last few skeds.
  13. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Looks like ALC still cutting into HB's lead - less than 30 nm back!
  14. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Partly it was due to unfavorable wind in front. It looks to me like there will be a small high blocking AT and ALC, so they might have to wait for the next low to arrive Thank you! Scroll up a couple of posts and read gregw's excellent interpretative post on what occurred you lazy bastard. Didn't even need to.
  15. Vendee Globe 2016?

    Not sure if I missed this, but could someone please explain how ALC caught up about 65 miles in about 24 hours? Is it great tactical decisions by ALC? Mistakes by HB or the effects of damage to his boat? Or a combination of the two?
