      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.

    and what evidence do you have to support and publish such a slanderous remark on the internet? disgruntled ex employee?
  2. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Al Jazeera reporting Vestas has hit an object in the exact area Sea Nymph's drift pattern would place the abandoned vessel at. They are proceeding to Hong Kong under jury rig and have dropped out of Volvo Ocean Race Leg 4 Captain Appel refuses to comment. Mr Clean is trying to figure out how to monetize this, but keeps falling asleep to Cheech and Chong's 'Big Bambu' album more details as they develop ...
  3. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    I bet the location of whatever they hit matches the drift pattern of Jennifer Appel's abandoned 'Sea Nymph' perfectly.
  4. Newport Bermuda Race 2018

    Most of that from family. Maybe the N2BDA Ambasadors should offer them a scholarship?

    Rumour in the pub is Jen and the fat Samoan bought it and are circumnavigating it with the dogs
  9. Displaced BVI / USVI cruisers & alternative plans for '18

    We just did the Grenadines and easy peasy. Plenty of mornings, never dropped the hook. May have a few hours exposed passage but you're mostly in the lee otherwise. Sure Not as easy as the BVIs but also nothing to scare away novice/intermediate sailors. Needs an occasional 4-6 hour sail rather than 1-3 in the BVIs. Can be done in the wee hours of the morning while the crew sleeps. Old man has To get up to pee anyway. May as well motor or sail and watch the sunrise a morning or two. Plenty of cool stuff to see.
  10. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    When you factor in the horse face and man hands, it drags the average down.
  11. HURRICANE WIND WARNING NOW IN EFFECT

    She's suppose to sail from Southampton on Jan 10. Wow.
  12. Commanche should have leebowed Wild Oats

    In that breeze? How did she catch them from 3 minutes late at the start and again at the finish?
  13. 8 Bells Everett Pearson

    P30 (Shaw) was a great little all around family cruiser / racer. Still see lots of them 40 yrs later. Of course the Ensign fleet in Sheepshead Bay is my favorite.

    If 99.99 pct of the folks who saw the video think it was a foul, it was a foul. The proper penalty isn't 30 minutes or an hour. The proper penalty was to honorably do their turns promptly when they fouled LDVC WO chose to forgoe that plea bargain and put it in the hands of a jury. They get what they deserve. A dsq would send a nice message instead of the sea lawyering WO will put on. Which outcome is better for the sport?
