      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 8 Itajaí to Newport

    I like Scally's strategy. They know they can't meet the speed of the others in a 1:1 comparison, so they ~must~ do something differently. And they do, repeatedly. Which makes the race so much more interesting. Thanks Scally, good luck with your plan!

    I watched it live on YT, and the VOR of course. Great weekend.

  8. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Oh, f#ck. I've forgotten about it (the randumb) already. Forgive meeeeeeeee... 4 x Vestas added, 6 x Mapfre to come... Also to recognize: A lot of short IVs from the dock on the Akzo Twitter feed (won't post them now): https://twitter.com/teamAkzoNobel
  9. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Thanks for the insight. Sad statement, especially when we are talking about supporting/promoting sailing in China (apparently not the goal for Dongfeng), but good to know. Thanks again for sharing. Even only few on shore jobs are taken by Chinese, except for Chinese media relations of course, and a bit of accounting. Isn't it lucrative or prestigious enough to work for a VOR campaign?
  10. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    I colonial tradition, they rather have a considerable number of Brits and Commonwealthies on and off board
  11. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    Maybe I am looking at the wrong place, but the VOR site/Teams/DF only shows the "Sailing Squad". But I'm at odds with this confusing website anyway. Their team website shows more information tho. Not many Chinese for a Chinese team.
  12. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    I would love more Chinese involvement, e.g. more Chinese sailors on board per leg. How many and which on-shore positions are occupied by Chinese persons?

    That's the 3D tracker I posted above. Cool thing, and good that it works for you. ------- 3 Brunel (incl 2 x BB) IVs added:
