      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.

    Why not. Maybe a distressed aramid laminate set of drapes or a throw cushion.
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Screwed the pooch on the hitch west and got completely out of phase. That’ll learn me. Back to struggling for the mid-fleet award (there is one right? Maybe a shitty sailbag?) for me.

    mom, your spot looks great. Nice call on the edge of pressure. Sucks balls a couple hundred miles west of you.

    Also, I think the frigate ran aground.
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    As long as no group has any real leverage over the others.... this is fucking ridculous. 4 wildly divergent paths and many in betweens. I’m just hoping to squeeze through to the north and go from there. Fascinating and massively educational. Imagine if the actual Volvo boats could take any andall paths? It would be mayhem.

    Spadadua is once more zeroing in on the mid-Fleet (for SA) prize. West of rhumb with a decent angle, but not far enough west to have an even better angle. Not using routing software; just the wind predictions available in the game. Seems like a very stable wind wind pattern for next many days. Is there a potential large gain going further East? Seems like it would be brutal coming back downwind from out there....

    Drag race right to the finish. Should have brought the Whomper....
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Sleep = 1,000 lost boats. Fuck.
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Moving into the low 300s on the leg. This may be the apex for spadadua unless the just north of the aggressively south group, but still well below layline pays off in next 36 hrs. Very very tempting to ride the wind up in next 24 hrs, but then it looks a bit ugly from that point from there on out.

    Bailing point for south strategy seems murky. It’s been a great 12 hrs aboard spadadua, but the navigator keeps popping his head up and shrugging his shoulders.
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    From a sailors perspective, having had the speedo pegged at close to 26knts for the past couple of days seems less dramatic than it should. Maybe they should incorporate some kind of feedback loop where someone periodically shows up your house/work and douses you with a bucket of ice cold water and throws you down a flight of stairs.
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Absolutely trucking now. Fought hard to get back north after being in the top 50 South of the rhumb line. Just barely made it. Bet I've sailed further than almost any other boat this leg... and some if it even in the right direction. VORG - Spadadua
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Will look for it. Until then, I thought we were hijacking Savannah YC.
  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I was down there and worked it up as much as I could. was great for a while but is about to suck hard.
