      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 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    This one is very special. We had some fun with him a couple of years ago. From some reports the one who had the most fun was Gracie Grapenips If you've got the time check out The thread that just keeps on giving
  2. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    There's a self-proclaimed tracker in Hong Kong who claims he's done a bit of sailing. You'll track him down at the RHKYC. Word of warning...if he starts talking about moonlight strolls then get outta there real quick
  3. The Ashes 2017

    Worked fine for Warner. Seems to be working OK for Mitch Marsh too.
  4. The Ashes 2017

    Maybe he should be in the Test team
  5. The Ashes 2017

    It looks like they did do a bit of navel gazing and found Jason Roy for the ODI's. Highest ODI score for England and it looks like they'll get the 305 they need with a few overs to spare for the first win of the summer. Well done...finally.

    The only jerk around here is you mate
  7. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Viper Worlds are next month.
  8. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    It's only just started for the Scallywag's
  9. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Well they can enjoy their day in the lead again but I know where I'd rather be...and that ain't where they are. Vestas, Akzo & Dongfeng in stronger position with wind filling in from north east. However in saying that, looking at Forss's tracker they all come together again between Taiwan & Philippines so once they get into more constant breeze it's game on and full on drag race. Fascinating.
  10. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Yep wow Mapfre certainly were in the right place at the right time about 2 hours ago.Almost reached light speed at a whopping 10 knots. Then Akzo got a bit of it and Dongfeng too. Brunel and Scallywag benefitting from it too but the puzzling thing is the wind is filling in from the south and west. No doubt a bit of snakes and ladders before the east works best. I wonder what the next 6 hours will bring. Will be getting dark over there within next couple of hours.
  11. The Ashes 2017

    Didn't make it past lunch though. Retired hurt/ill again and the rest of them are dropping like flies. 1 wicket to go unless Root comes out, and why would he? What's the point?
  12. The Ashes 2017

    The day got worse for Root. He ended up in hospital for heat exhaustion and dehydration. Doubts whether he'll be able to bat today.
  13. The Ashes 2017

    Poms wilting in the 40c plus temps in Sydney. Aussies put them to the sword in the heat and put the English bowlers out of their misery when declare with a 300 run lead, saving Crane from the ignominy of clocking up a double century in his first innings bowled at Test Level. And then Stoneman & Cook come out to bat. Stoneman lasts 9 balls before lbw'd by Starc and then Lyon comes on for the 6th over and immediately turns it and on his 5th ball bowls Cook. Me thinks England want to go home tonight
  14. why am i here?

    Mine was sailing a full rig Laser when I was 18 weighing about 60kgs, before the days of Radials, on the Swan River in Perth most Saturdays. Most of the time the Freo Doctor was in and blowing steady 15-20 knots. I remember one particular day when it must've been closer to 25 knots. Capsize after capsize after capsize I was getting a bit frustrated, and a bit worn out, so after about the 5th capsize I struggled to get back up on the centreboard and when I did I just jumped on it...centreboard was fine...boom however was a different story because I'd forgotten to ease off the vang...so I limped back to the club, which was thankfully on a broadish reach, all the while cursing and saying "Why the fuck am I doing this?"
  15. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Wow Mapfre has the bit between their teeth. Almost within 10nm DTL, based on DTF, sailing lower and faster in similar breeze. Something not quite right there or they're sailing beautifully in the conditions.
