      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. NACRA - finally!

    Well done ricwoz! Thank you for putting in the effort. Have you contacted Nacra Sailing and Nacra Australasia? I guess they have a lot of historical as well as current info available. I hope to be able to contribute to the article in some way in the near future.
  2. Looking for a Cat Whisperer

  3. The great curve

    Great performance
  4. The great curve

    Made a beeline for this topic once I saw the tittle, favorite Talking Heads song from favorite Talking Heads album!
  5. Goodbye to a great comedian, Jerry Lewis DTS

    Had the pleasure to see him perform the role of Mr Applegate in "Damn Yankees" in London in '97. Not a musical lover, but thoroughly enjoyed this one, not in the last place thanks to Mr. Lewis' formidable stage presence! He will be missed, but we'll have the fond memories forever
  6. Many happy returns!
  7. Our Beloved mainsheetgirl

    Hope it will be a day of good memories.
  8. You're comparing a solo non-stop around the world (VG) to a fully professional crewed stage based round the world (VOR) to a glorified round the cans (AC) to an amateur stage based around the world (CR). But yes, the VG has been kicking VOR's ass for ages, since its last edition it isn't even a contest between those two anymore. I gather you don't like foiling boats, man you are going to hate VOR's next incarnation!
  9. volvo goes both ways

    Are the inshore cats going to feature wing sails?
  10. VOR 2017-18

  12. VOR 2017-18

    Ocean legs in , what is essentially, a fully crewed foiling IMOCA 60, in-port races will be on foiling cats.
  13. A link to the tracker: http://vittoriomalingri.geovoile.com/dakarguadeloupe/2017/tracker/?lg=en they're 100 miles ahead at the moment
  14. Thanks for the heads up! Any news of Benoît et Pym must be following their attempt? their record stands since 2008. At the time the said that they hoped another team would break their record so they could go out again and try to do even beter. Good luck to Vittorio and Nico
