      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.

  2. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    How do you know who they were directed there by ? Maybe it was VOR given that there was the correct cradle there straight away

    I would have thought it most unlikely they are being held or indeed ever were. I suspect you will find that they are just keeping a low profile (on advice) and the incident will be disturbing to each of them as well. Difficult to see how the boat could be ready for Legs 5 or 6 so it will be easier to keep them out of the public spotlight for now. If you have email addresses send one and I hope you will get a response. Just be supportive rather than inquisitive. I too have a friend on board.

  9. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Scally extends sailing a straight line while all behind have to gybe at 90 degrees to the course.

    I was thinking the same thing this morning. In the old days I had the impression it was SOP to open the seacocks to send the boat to the bottom but these days it seems it never happens. Is there a reason?

    Akzo will be on the outside of the wheel of ill fortune. Damn it.
  12. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    It must be tough on Akzo trying to soak down all the time to get to the line of Vestas and Dong without giving anything more away and they are looking over their shoulder at Mapfre. 10 minutes to the next Sched

    Was it Ricko ? Blew his cover.

    Will Lord Dubin make an appearance at the VOR.. Maybe he is another mate of Witty and can join the team alongside Warro. Get rid of these young punks who want to jump overboard.

    by hanging around close to Dongers and keeping a very close eye on what they are doing.
