      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

    Mapfe is really playing this leg smart. Get in front of vs11 and dong and stay between them and cape town. If Brunel wins and Mafre are 2nd, so.. Mapfre will now be leading overall and would have gained on their two closest rivals. Solid. If they happen to get Brunel between them and their closest rivals (scorewise), better yet. Donger needs to stick with them (and hopefully pass :), but at least not have boats between them and Mapfre. In any case, this leg is far from over, and I like DFRT's speed when the breeze is up like it should be next leg.

    But look at boatspeeds... Dong is smoking! Let's hope she stays together.

    That will give "dial-up" an entirely new meaning. [/drift]
  5. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Imagine the speculation here if the entire fleet went stealth at the same time
  6. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    And in front too.
  7. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Agreed. I like Vestas working it south. Little surprised Mapfre is doing more of that. Probably just the local conditions at the time, but maybe a bit of dong fear too.

  9. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch... Not willing to write DF off yet (or anyone for that matter). 1700 nm with unstable weather ahead.
  10. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Who's on first?
  11. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Interesting way to cross-sheet...
  12. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    I think it is so cool they went stealth, especially with Mapfre being the slowest boat in the fleet at last report. Vila and crew must be pulling hairs about now.

    What's it rate?
  14. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Boats north showing good speed. Dong and Vespa (appropriate autocorrect? ), not so much...
  15. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Really tight for all. This is a close race.
