      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.

  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Hahaha..... My club is friendlier than yours ...ner ner na ner ner... All clubs will welcome you ...and MHYC is a great club but nothing beats the boat porn at the CYC.... Oh and lets not forget the privilege of buying a $20 bottle of red for $100...(new extensions had to be paid somehow)

    The cup boats are very good... If you like racing they do the Wednesday afternoon race and it's usually a good fleet.... I hope you get captain Bruce W... Or go down to Rushcutters bay (Cruising Yacht Club Aust.) and ask around.. I do Wednesdays down there and they get fleets of 20-70 boats at either the lunch race or the twilight race... get there by 4-4.30pm and ask around. Also put your name on the board...
  5. Really...? The birth place of Australia is within an hour of everywhere .... Great waterway with good consistent breeze. Lots of rigging space and very friendly people.... The Sydney Olympics should have been sailed there....

    Never rule Witty out when it comes to heavy air downwind sailing.... that is he thing.... but yes it would have to be hard with less crew
  7. Rushour on its roof.

    May I ask were you keep reading this...? I've not experienced this.... Sure it's slower than holding it and a no no when sailing in breeze at speed but self tailers these days with springs in the jaws don't lock sheets in. Anywho, props to Drew for posting it....
  8. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Wow... just popped in to find all hell has broken loose..... Could the above actually be true...? Did A4E get booted...? Will Jack be next..? Is Witty really in the Volvo Ocean Race...? Is A4E really Jacks illegitimate love child....? Is it true the Chipmunks have entered the Sydney to Hobart on the big Injun with Croaky....? Calling Jack.... please explain
  9. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Plus 1,000,000 I'm in therapy over it..
  10. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    When you are that tired you don't notice
  11. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Hard to comprehend ...... give me 1 hour of that on that boat and I'll happily hang up the boots.....
  12. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Witty called this a social experiment..... It could be like the exclusive mile high club. Who will be the first...? Note to A4E... The race at this point is a boring procession and your input and requests for expulsion are hilarious. Keep chasing that lure. Mad and Jack.... After feeding out more line and then getting the hook up, you are using too much brake on the reel too quickly. You need to play it more or risk pulling the hook out. It's a long enjoyable fight so don't peak too early boys.... BTW.. you know if you use a FoiL for bait we could have a double hookup here with DouG... Keep up the good work
  13. Transat Jacques Vabre

    Or at least for one IMOCA.... SMA (Paul) is as usual making the other guys in more modern foil assisted boats look ordinary ...
  14. Transat Jacques Vabre

    You know this about Gitana or making it up....?
  15. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    She's a genuine legend to sail with
