      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.

    I think Clarkey might be like Indio, never sailed in his life.
  2. Oracle Team USA

    Indio 's hurt is very deep, not only did ETNZ lose in spectacular fashion so therefor they must have cheated, but also, like so many Kiwis who have a huge chip on their shoulder about Australia, JS who engineered the comeback was an Aussie. Talk about double butt hurt. Oh and Iain Murray is and Aussie also so he must also be a cheat.
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I think the $20 plastic sextant (and yes I own one and practice occasionally on the beach) would be next to useless on these boats at the speed they are traveling and way they bounce around. Using DR would be better.

    Goldy along time ago?

    Indio, stick to golf a sport you actually play and stay the fuck away from sailing
  6. Oracle Team USA

    Indio is a very sick man, he sets himself up as an expert in hydraulics and tries to baffle everyone with his supposed knowledge but with out any real facts. Now he is commenting on USA politics, again with out knowing any facts except what he gleans from the very left wing media in New Zealand. Thank god he is not polluting the VOR thread like he did last time around, his lack of knowledge was unbelievably. And remember all this is from a man who has never been is a sailboat or has never been in a sailboat race. I suspect he is a downtrodden Public Servant who gets his thrills trolling the ineterweb.

    Interesting to note that JS has been doing a fair bit of foiling surfing over the last 6 months.

    I think you find the intention of the rc always was to shorten, which they did making it about 10 to 12 miles.
  13. Australian Yachting Championship 2019

    Just because it is cheaper doen't make it better. There is a reason the top boats race IRC, its fairer racing and does not have the same fiddle factor that AMS does. And don't come back and say AMS does not have a behind the scenes fiddle factor.

    Clarkey, Team NZ is a New Zealand team, just as the NZ Breakers are in the NBL and the Phoenix are in the A League. Those teams have imports to bolster the team but they are not the National Team as are say the All Blacks or Black Caps. Would you still call the All Blacks the National Team if the brought Izzy Folau into the team or the Black Caps used Virat Koli. You national pride is blinding you. By the way I could not be bothered look at your vids, too boring.

    Nope, it proves my point exactly
