      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 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I'm devastated. Call it the wrath of a scorned lover. When I see ST slipping his way to the bow and the young ones standing around, I don't think wow Simeon is a great leader - I think what are these passengers doing.
  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    For the AkzoNobel boat, I can't imagine anything on that boat as being normal, especially after seeing the skipper personally working the bow, a well connected sail trimmer with basically no exp, and the other mismanaged nonsense. Who knows.

    I can say with certainty that no one who sails on the VOR65 cares about how this particular leaderboard does the "leader" rankings. Position reports and knowledge of the weather informs their perception re where they are.

    Ever had athletes foot? Wear wet gloves for 4 hour shifts and guaranteed to have a bad case of it. Won't heal as fast as roughened u hands .

    @Herman what res and interval are you using for routing?
  6. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Men usually are the ones with poor hamstring flexibility and end up defecating on the deck. There are things called birth control pills these days - skip the placebo week and don't have to deal with it. Also works wonders with hormone regulation.

    Maybe Salter wants to get fired.
  8. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Magenta's mistake was probably not considering how Bes feels about it. TBF most of the sailing org directors and leadership are in Mexico and just spent a couple days talking about inclusion and sustainability.
  9. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    That was basically Phil Harmer's argument with Abby. There's prob cultural and generational differences too. For a lot of the older more experienced women, they're simply tired of this shit and just want to sail well. It's probably why you see a diff in younger less experienced women who look at the camera awkwardly and smile. It's just part of being human and reading the room. Some people don't have that switch and call being polite or not an asshole - political correctness. But those are probably the same folks who'll dry hump a teenager on a day sail benefiting sexual assault survivors.

    Shrug. Humor and sexual harassment aren't mutually exclusive. If someone pointed a camera at you and asked you how do you brush your teeth it might be low brow humor. If someone did the same to Monica Lewinsky that's probably harassment.

    Eh some of the most vocal criticism came from magenta ppl. Diff sensibility and heightened sensitivity for some in the English speaking world because of all the high profile sexual harassment coming out of the US.

    LOL missed opportunity for someone to remark to Witty that he weighs about as much as two sailors on TTOP.
  13. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Akzo's move is a giant gamble but not sure how likely it is going to work. The weather models seem to agree they're sailing right towards the high pressure and prob will suffer by it. If I were a betting person I wouldn't gamble that Vestas, MAPFRE, DF and Brunel are all wrong. OTOH I guess if you are looking for a miracle that's the way to do it. Prob makes some stupid executives in AkzoNobel happy.
  14. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Vestas, Brunel, MAPFRE & DF are playing the long game - the others are trying for a prayer of catching up, so they'll take risks the leading 4 wouldn't.
