      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

    I've still got my grandpa's enema machine, and use is all the time. It sputtered: ROTFLBTCDICAJTTWADBSIHPWTRHITSBKABAYB
  2. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Wanted to watch it, just because I like garlic and Swedish girls. But fucking NBC and their stranglehold of anything Olympic on the internet make it nearly impossible. Thanks for the Link, nice story and pictures!
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Hey wait a minute, we are playing in the finals of the mixed double first. Curling that is...

    Sounds like you were talking about a very long French letter. Any chance those cranes will finish up in Auckland, and are they going around the high?
  5. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Interesting Linky, thanks for that Miffy. Had expected that it was picked up by a low orbiting ais satellite, but instead it was by a long range land base station. Noticed that the station was run by the MRCC, the Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre, good on them Frogs!

    Don't know why, but I can't find the Daily Live anywhere. Any linky's please ! Or did the Smorgasbords pull it all for some reason?

    Best guess for Brunel is exactly what the Forss/Windy/GFS predicts, makes sense IMHO. Oops, that prediction close to the coast is now gone with the 0700 update, but Map/Dong now showing something similar though less extreme.

    No truer word has been said on this forum yet. Got to be on a boat though.

    Stealth mode? No problem, I am going back to watching curling.!

    What a stupid statement! You know what, properly fitted yacht have tapered stanchions. And BTW, agricultural yachts have them untapered.

    Thanks so much Hoppy! The high resolution (8km) might just cover some of them. Just noticed that the free version now gives the 8km resolution, wasn't so a few months ago. Quite honestly, Predictwind have been dropping the ball a few times too many for me. I used to pay when I needed it, and then they screw you when you are on the free version for a while. For those who like to try Predictwind, go here and subscribe: https://www.predictwind.com/

    Hoppy, don't want to spoil your drone fun, but would you mind to post a Predictwind wind prediction for when the boats are in the wind shadow of La Grande Terre (New Cal main island). That would be around the 0700 UTC update time, or you could pick a time near it, when the biggest shadow is cast, if you like. Windy's EC model does seem to do a pretty good job on wind shadows, but Predictwind still claim to do that better. Thanks for the trouble, will be appreciated!

    Just being rudely woken up by a lot of noise here, but I must say I do agree 100% with what you said. "Normaly" one would not take so much offence, but in the light of Vestas' and the VOR's hiding behind the bush this springs out as tasteless, to say the least.

    Mouse line? Never heard of it... You mean a pilot-, retrievel-, or feeder-line I guess, making it a 2x points penalty.

    Do I see Dongfeng tie the sailbag to the lower lifeline, about halfway in the clip, really? Got to be illegal!
