      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. Incredible! Bravo to Thomas, his prep team and routers. Sailor(and team) of the year! Enjoy
  2. If it ain't sailing, it ain't sailing. If it ain't sailing, it ain't sailing.
  3. Clean, thanks for the video. That was great and even saw a friend in your video. Looks damn cold but the excitement of the crowd makes it tolerable I am sure. It is on the list of must do's in 4 years time and the wife agrees! Haji, thanks for all of your insights on this forum as you are truly one of a few sailors who has been there and actually done that. Major Props.
  4. Could someone please translate what is being said? Great footage even without the translation. Thanks for sharing... and Southern Cross thanks for the Nat Geo link earlier.
  5. HH, Agreed. This thread may be the best way to follow the race thanks to all of the Anarchist input. Cheers!
  6. Reminds me a bit of Yves Parlier in 2000 fabricating a new mast over the course of something like a week before setting sail again. Good to hear the race still has all its competitors one week after the start
  7. The interview and tour with Seb Josse was great. The amount of effort towards customization is impressive. Moving nearly a ton for each tack is quite the effort. Does anyone know if there are other extended interviews that showcase the layout in such detail as the Seb Josse video?
  8. +1 packing it up early on a Friday afternoon. Need to get in the ocean for some body surfing in lieu of sailing....
  9. WFD Team Anarchy...using a bit of levity in the correct situation can put everyone including the rescuer more at ease while maintaining the focus of the rescuer - used it many times as an ocean lifeguard when swimming out make rescues in the surf.
  10. Merle has been a longtime favorite. My wife and I saw him perform in Bakersfield about 10 years ago and then, most recently, in Marin County last Fall. He seemed frail but gave the sold out audience a show I will remember. A true original music outlaw, not something manufactured by the industry. Peace be to Merle.
  11. makes for some fun reading and adds some bit of pressure to SF to complete the negotiations - if SF actually wants the AC back.
  12. Lots of rain today in the North Bay and it looks to continue for a while. Some breeze but it is from the south which restricts racing. I see no one on the water at the moment. It may be we'll have to go racing tomorrow.
  13. Yes, absolutely tragic. Prayers for the deceased and his family.
  14. Cruise terminal under construction. This will be a major hospitality spot for the AC with the finish line 180 degrees from the view you see (impaired from this actual spot by the future Club 72). The word is there will be access around the terminal and Club 72 (currently Club 45) for waterfront viewing.
