      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. Sad to see that Fazisi is now on a beach having been caught and washed ashore by Hurricane Ima, I hope those involved can get her back to sailing condition, but I'm pleased to see that the boat has lasted this long, in sailing condition. This then begs the question - How many more ex WRTWR are there still out there, still sailing? Thinking about the 81/82 race, the 85/86 race and the 89/90 race in particular. I wonder where they all are now? 81/82 race Flyer 2, Ceramco New Zealand, Charles Heidsieck III, Kriter XI, Disque D'Or III (later Maiden, now being restored to "Maiden" condition), Outward Bound etc. 85/86 race UBS Switzerland, Lion New Zealand, Drum, New Zealand Enterprise, Atlantic Privateer, Cote d'Or 89/90 race Steinlager 2, Fisher and Paykel, Merit, Rothmans, The Card, Charles Jourdan, Gatorade (ex UBS?), UBF, Belmont Finland II, NCB etc.... Anyone know where any of theses boats are now?
  2. what is it?

    Sadly Espada was lost in that fire. Come on Ed, are you going to tell us what it is?
  3. 585): Why was I handcuffed to the roof? (518): It was easier then trying to explain why you couldn't fly
  4. The pussification of England continues.....

    I dunno, rising Irish prosperity pretty much put a stop to IRA terrorism. Actually it was more to do with the fact that the US started to realise what terrorism was post 9/11, and stopped funding the IRA...... Kinda smacked of hypocrasy, don't you think?
