      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. Old One Ton

    Don't know, but I think it's pretty to look at.
  2. It appears to me that all the delos crew are quite creative and get involved with the filming and production. I'm guessing they are invited because of their abilities to contribute to the process. I think there are six people working on their stuff, which is why it's so good.
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I hope they realise that that the graphics peeling of the boat is leaving plastic trash in the ocean right ?
  4. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I know from the skippers of the commercially sponsored boats we only get to see the media trained sides of them coming out, but from what I can see Witty wins the skipper I would choose to have of pints with contest. I find him quite refreshing.
  5. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Vestas reported to RC that further assistance wasn't required
  6. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Wind data looks ok which implies the rig is still up. What if it was a huge circular ish net and it wasn't entirely obvious which way to escape it.
  7. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    It seem that by the next sched the skally's lead over everyone but Vestas will be about 10% of the miles left to go. Assuming it's still mostly a drag race I would say that boats behind that have shown superior speed are out of runway to grind them down through boatspeed alone.
  8. It's better than anything I could cook up
  9. Savannah GA, has just enough racing to say that it exists, but that's about it, Semi regular hack level PHRF where 10 boats is considered a hell of a turn out.
  10. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Ouch !! That suck for Brunel, Mapf and the plastics. I am rooting for the skally's a bit now. I think we definitetly need to see a lot of podium mix up or it's going get very dull towards the end.
  11. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    I think Brian was supposed to be the nav all along but broke his leg just before the start.
  12. ‘Bomb cyclone’ to Blast East Coast

    Looking out of my window at 2 inches of snow in Savannah GA, does not happen every year or so. I've seen one or two flurries in the 9 years I've been here. Nothing like this.
  13. Autopilot acp1 AND NMEA 183 INPUT

    Or if you have a, hercules system, NMEA goes into the performance processor. How many processor " brain boxes " do you have ?
  14. I have a suggestion, go back and read the thread, and you might learn why they chose to go up there. Everyone else knows, because everyone else reads the freely available information.
  15. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    Could this thing not be as simple as getting a PHRF rating for J24 without the genoa. Having done a wide variety of sailboat racing, I have got to say that lighthearted, O/D in beat up shitboxes where everyone has a laugh is quite appealing. I think it migh suit certain demographics quite well, as I get a little older I still like sailing, I still like racing. As life becomes more grown up I just can't really get a space in my head where I can take it very seriously.
